1 hour private tour of the National Zoo and Aquarium

We need to meet at the zoo at 9:00am. The tour starts at 9:30am sharp and cannot be delayed for any late comers  as it will impact on other organised zoo activities.

Please note that for the tour to go ahead a minimum of 10 people. Alternatively, if we have less than 10 people the tour can still go ahead, but will still need to cover the cost of 10.

    Amazing photos!!

    A big thank you ladies for a fun and relaxed morning and your generosity for letting me be the one to feed the bear! The bear was a big wish of mine though I have to say, its Hummer tongue gymnastics that is sticking in my mind at the moment.

    It was lovely to see some new CWAG faces and I hope to see you all again soon.

    Thanks all for a great morning and thanks Kim for organising. I also wandered away without saying goodbye, went to find the toilets and then got a call from one of my children so headed home. Looking forward to another meet up soon!

      Thanks Bec, the animals are gorgeous subjects that just 'need' their picture taken.

    thanks for organising this, Kim. It was lovely even if the bears didn't want to come out to play. (grin). I'm glad you got to feed one. A very nice outing.

    Great morning, thanks for organising Kim. I have uploaded some pics, I have others with people feeding the giraffe, but I wasn't sure if people were ok with me posting them, I forgot to seek permission.

    I havent had a response to either the text message or my message here. As I know you had to finalise tickets yesterday I am going to assume you dont have a ticket for me and I will sleep in tomorrow. For those who are going I hope you enjoy the experience.

      Amanda, I'm guessing she included you since you did RSVP. Kim is still figuring out this site I think (like I am!). I'd show up, just in case, and I bet it'll work out.

    Hi Kim, i deposited $60 into your account on the 24th and the payment bounced back into my account on the 25th. I checked that the payment went into the account details you provided. Can you please check the details you provided were correct. Regards Amanda

    July 26, 2013

  • elisa

    Kim, I emailed you regarding the payment- did you get it? I'm unable to transfer money with my foreign card. Can I drop money off to you directly, or is anyone willing to pay for me and I can bring you money? I'm in Aranda, and free to deliver the $60 fee at any point. Thanks- Elisa

  • Kim

    Jessica, just go to your PayPal account and request the payment to be cancelled. As stated in a previous email PayPal payments are not making it into my account and PayPal cannot tell me why. So your money is still effectively with you so I can't do the refund from my end.

    Payment is too complicated

    July 24, 2013

  • Kim

    Hello Ladies,

    If you intend coming along to this meetup and haven't contacted me regarding payment (i.e. asked for my bank details) please do so as payment is required prior to the tour. For those of you who have 'paid' by paypal and haven't responded to my private email about cancelling the paypal payment and paying by bank desposit, please do so. If you are no longer able to come and haven't changed tour RSVP, please do so or let me know so I can change it for you.

    RSVPs close on Thursady afternoon as I need to finalise numbers and pay the Zoo on Friday so, if you haven't contacted me about payment before then you will not included in the tour.

    Thanks,
    Kim

    I'm very new to the whole meet up thing. How do I email you directly, Kim, in order to find out where to transfer the money?

    July 22, 2013

  • Kim

    Hello Elisa,

    RSVPs close 4pm on the Thursday before the tour as I need to finalise numbers and pay the on the Friday.

      Hi Kim- I don't have an Australian visa and can't transfer internationally. Can I bring you or someone else the fee directly? I'd be happy to do that any time. I'm in Aranda. Thanks!

      July 22, 2013

  • Kim

    Sorry Amanda, you can't pay by PayPal, only by bank transfer. Please email me directly for my account details.

    July 17, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
