RULES SHOULD BE FOLLOWED
Tue, May 19  3:00 PM 99skyking Male 60-69 Combination Group of Friends
YOUR WEBSITE SAYS NO OPEN TOE SHOES, YET THERE WAS 5-6 PEOPLE ON OUR TOUR TUESDAY, 5-19-15 @ 3 pm WHO HAD OPEN TOES/FLIP FLOPS. ALSO, THEY ANNOUNCED JUST BEFORE THE TOUR TO TURN ALL CELL PHONES OFF, FOR THEY WOULD SCARE THE CATS. ONE PERSON IN THE GROUP WAS ON THE PHONE CONSTANTLY. IF YOUR GOING TO HAVE RULES THEN THEY NEED TO BE ENFORCE. THE WOMEN IN MY GROUP ASKED ABOUT THEW KIND OF SHOES AND I SAID THEY HAD TO BE A CLOSED SHOE. AFTER GETTING THERE I FELT LIKE A FOOL WHEN THEY LET OTHER PEOPLE WEAR THEM.

I learned a lot of interesting facts to help me understand these animals and how our self esteem or lack there of has damaged the balance of our Eco system that these wonderful cats are a part of. God created them for a darn good reason and in the long run we are just hurting ourselves when we hurt them.

Educational, cost goes to feeding the cats
Sun, May 17  3:00 PM nat94cvt Female Unspecified Unspecified Family Without Children
We really enjoyed this tour. If you want to see the cats, learn more about them, and contribute in a small way, please visit this rescue. It is mostly staffed with volunteers, including the local vet who treats the cats when needed. They are very well taken care of, and loved a great deal - that is evident we you listen to the staff talk about them. There are different tours, but we picked the basic one on our first visit. Next time, we are going to try the feeding tour or an evening/night tour. You don't get to feed the cats yourself, but I believe you do get to see how it's done.

You can't visit this rescue without an appointment, and that is because humans can't seem to follow simple instructions for their safety when around these big, beautiful, but dangerous animals.

Please go because I would find it hard to believe you could be disappointed. Please like their Facebook page to keep up with current information and events.

This was a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about the rescue. It was not only entertaining but educational too. Definitely worth every penny paid to support this cause. I will go back and attend the other various tours offered too!

Frequent visitor

big cat rescue is absolutely amazing! I have gone twice a year for 9 years now and it never gets old. They always have something new. Be it new facts or new cats it's always a new experience. My 12 year old goddaughter and I absolutely loved it! I always look forward to my next visit and am always sad when the tour ends. Definitely recommended!

Charity that fulfils its aims
Fri, May 15  3:00 PM Andrewevans Male 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Nice to visit a rescue charity with such strong principals and look after the cats with great affection, whilst allowing the visitor a glimpse into these lovely cats world, without compromising the cats themselves.

interesting but over priced
Fri, May 15  3:00 PM spritemad Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We visited as we like to support wildlife conservation projects. But left feeling short changed. Yes we understand that you can't guarantee that the animals will be seen but the tour seemed rushed. The guide although seemingly well informed relied on the pre recorded information a little too much. The tour was billed as 90 minutes and was over in a little over an hour. In short a long drive from Orlando for an overpriced attraction. On the plus side a $158 donated to help support the cats. This is a big cat rescue centre as the cats simply live out their lives here yes undoubtedly in better conditions than they had before being rescued but there is no rehabilitation or anything else going on.

Disappointing
Wed, May 13  3:00 PM WCThompson Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our family (sons 19 & 24 yr) chose this activity because of its high rating on Tripadvisor, but none of us found it that enjoyable. The cats have endured hard, neglectful lives and are being well cared for, but they did not seem happy. Many seemed to have hip and balance problems (we were told due to unhealthy declawing by previous owners), and those that attempted to move around seemed miserable. Most just slept or were inactive and the whole experience left our family wondering if they might not have been better off relieved of their misery, although it was

very obvious that the staff really cares for them. The tour is well organized, competently led and the steep price probably helps sustain the care needed for the cats, but it was a depressing, rather than uplifting part of our vacation.

A little too much for seniors
Wed, May 13  3:00 PM cupcake1936 Female 70+ Local Family Without Children
Would have been more far more enjoyable in the cooler months. The day was warm and very humid and as an older visitor I found it extremely uncomfortable. I might add that I am very active and walk extensively on a daily basis. Because of the heat, humidity, uneven terrain and standing still for extended periods, I found myself feeling very nauseous. Another visitor of approximately the same age was also having problems. Would recommend it strongly for younger persons, not so much in the warm months for senior citizens. It is however, a fascinating experience and extremely educational. The group does an excellent job.
