The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They are passionate for the love of big cats which I share and the need for stronger laws. I go to Orlando annually and want to take others with me on future and longer visits. Also add better signage - it was hard finding the location. Give extra time to find it as it is easy to get lost. Wonderful place and I am happy to support it by visits and merchandize purchases.
Our Guides ( Pam and Sue ) were knowledgeable and delightful to be around. Pam took my boy under her wing and made him feel very special. This is our 3rd visit and look foward to when we will return to Florida and visit again.
The hosts were very welcoming, knew so much about the animals and what made them healthy and thrive. The animals seemed well taken care of and their well-being was paramount to the owners of this amazing place. We also appreciated that our hosts had lots of experience and scientific knowledge of animals around the world because of their travels, safaris and contacts with experts including how climate change is impacting the natural habitats of these beautiful animals. Well done and well worth the cost.
The wireless story telling system is outdated
It was an informative experience and very different from just seeing the animals at the zoo.
Great to see the cats are being taken care of so well. Glad to hear their stories.
You do a fantastic job and the joy all your staff that we interacted with was so positive. Thanks for your incredible care of these animals. It is very much appreciated and we will visit again.
Denny is absolutely the best host and guide. It was a very informative tour with just the right combination of knowledge, empathy, and humor. It is easy to see how much everyone at BCR loves the cats and what they do!
Very informative and compassionate guide. Saw many cats.
Our tour guide was amazing, you could tell he really loved what he was doing. You could tell there was a connection with him and the animals. They were all loved very much. I enjoyed the whole day. Please keep doing what you are doing.
Great work they are doing for these magnificent animals.
our guide was very informative, the cats were active and the total experience was very enlightening
We loved the tour and all the big cats they were so beautiful our guides were terrific
Even though some may not, I really liked how it ended with asking to get in contact with state representatives. The tour was quick enough but still with plenty of time to take pictures. Was a very good and educational experience.
Fantastic experience I will never forget. The information and education provided was a true eye opener. I thank everyone, staff and volunteers, for all you do.
The tour is amazing, the guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. Great information about the cats, but great behind the scene information from the guides. They also talk about the personalities of the individual cats and personnel knowledge and experiences with some of the cats. Great at answering questions and overall very enjoyable! Great place to visit and we keep coming back time after time.
It was so awesome seeing how people care about these big cats and want the best for them. Jaguar was beautiful.
Very educational and the cats are cool. Big Cat Rescue is an amazing organization and I will definitely tour again.
What an amazing experience and a wealth of knowledge you provided. I absolutely loved your sanctuary and will be back again someday. Signed, Holly in Orange County, CA
First of all, Big Cat Rescue is the real deal as a rescue. The volunteers and staff are friendly , courteous and well informed. Their devotion and care for the residents is five star and heart warming. It is sad that there has to be a place like this because of what people do, but it is a good home for those rescued. The more people that get educated the more likely the need for a rescue will fade away, hopefully.
All of the volunteers were very friendly. They were very knowledgeable about all of the animals there and you could tell they really cared about them. The animals themselves looked well taken care of and they seemed to be happy. The Rescue was very clean.
I learned a great deal today about the work that 'Big Cat Rescue' is doing. I also didn't know how many cats are being abused and exploited. I didn't have the best weather during my visit and missed seeing quite a few of the cats, but those I did see and had their stories shared with me was amazing. Highly recommend
advertised as 1 1/2 hours, we were finished in 1 hour. A bit expensive for just 1 hour.

I enjoyed seeing all the animals close up and liked the educational piece that went with our tour. I’m a HUGE cat lover (big and small felines), so this was thrilling for me. I commend the owner and all the staff for giving these previous animals a clean, safe haven to live. We had a wonderful experience and will try to make it back when we visit Florida again.
Knowledgeable tour guide and friendly staff Animals well cared for Our teenagers thought the whole experience was “cool”
Organized, punctual with tour start time, adequately staffed, informative tour, good mix of technology and live presentation on the tour.
