We read reviews on tripadvisor before we went and I couldn't recommend Buffalo Tiger more highly. We drove past several other airboat companies on our way so don't be tempted to stop. We had just 9 people on our tour.. Some of the others have many more. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we got to see many gators as... More

We have seen several different Everglades Tours on Tamiami Trail - but this was by far the best. Small boats, guide knew where to find which animals and told interesting stories that one only knows if your family lives there for ages. He had a personal bounding to the Everglades and could show this to us. Take long trousers and... More

Our family loved the airboat ride! Our guide, Randee was an awesome guide. We saw gators, birds, grasshoppers, and of course the Everglades. We had plenty of time to take pictures and enjoy the tour. But, also zoomed across the water. We have close up pics of the gators and birds. Make sure you use insect repellent. We all would... More

We loved our airboat ride! Our guide knew where to find gators and many other animals, knew their habits, and taught us a lot! Very interesting! He knew certain alligators and was able to demonstrate their extremely powerful jaw closing. Wow! We loved zooming across the water on the airboat ride. The location was closer to Miami than many of... More

Our guide was excellent. The wildlife was abundant. I can't believe how close the gators come to to boat!!

If you are visiting or living in the Miami area, going to the everglades is a MUST! Is fun, interesting and a learning experience. You will be able to see gators, raccoons, birds, grasshoppers and a lot of bugs, so make sure you use insect repellents before you start the ride. The boat stop several times to take pictures.

Randy was our guide and we immediately saw tripod before setting off. The airboat is awesome, and a great way to cool down in the humidity of Florida. We soon came across baby alligators and their parents, spending a lot of time taking their photos as Randy fed them and the wild birds in the area. They were the only... More

Tour was good, Randy gave us a lot of information and showed the land where Buffalo Tiger used to live. We got some great pictures of alligators. Good price, we were a little disappointed that the time flew by and wished it could be longer. We didn't saw a racoon.

This has small boats and informative guides who get you close up to alligators in their natural environment. They know the alligators and they know the waterways as their Indian forebears settled the land. You also get to see a deserted Indian village and feed a wild, but friendly raccoon. We saw many alligators, including a mum with lots of... More

We enjoyed our visit and especially the fact that they didn't try to gouge you when conditions weren't prime. Due to low water a lot of the area wasn't navigable, we were charged a very reasonable $20 pp for a 30 min tour. We saw 6 decent sized gators, including a mother with numerous babies swimming nearby. Our guide Fabian... More
