Tomorrow, we're going to visit my grandma in LA, and we're also stopping by the San Diego zoo and Wild Animal Park. I've never been there, and my mom hasn't for years, but based on the website info there's two different 'tours' you can take. The basic one just pretty much goes on the outskirts of the park; pretty far from the animals. But for $70 more per person, you can go on a special "photo tour". I'm not quite sure what this is, but I'm guessing I'd get much better photo opportunities of the animals than on the basic one. Does anyone who's been there know if paying extra for the special tour is worth it? How close can you get to the animals, photography wise? (I have a 12x zoom, but try not to use it fully because of quality issues). Are the views worth it, or should I just stick with the 'basic' tour and hope for the best photo opps.? Thanks.
