It was neat to see the wolves & learn a little but there is no interaction unless you pay $300 to get your pic taken with them. Wasn't too impressed.

I can't remember how much it cost but around $15 as mentioned in previous responses. For the price it is an awesome tour that provides a lot of info and you get pretty close to the animals. Have fun!!!
