Having a guide give information that we wouldn't have learned otherwise.

The behind the scenes should include more interaction with the animals, such as feeding them.

The zoo was pretty good. The voucher got us into the zoo and so we visited the zoo after the tour.

The behind the scenes aspect was a big disappointment. Most of the tour was walking around the normal part of the zoo. About all that was behind the scenes was the opportunity to see the kitchen.
