No. This tour is available only in English. I recommend contacting/googling Barefoot New York, a NYC company run by a wonderful Italian guide who can help you better.

The walking tour does pass by the Zoo near the beginning of the tour, and includes some commentary & historical photos on its history as we pass by, but it does not include admission to the zoo, if that is what you mean.
