My husband and I visited Buffalo Tigers during our visit to Miami. We had a great time seeing the alligators and hearing the info from our guide Junior. We were in a group of 11, so it wasn't too many. It was our first time on an airboat and we were surprised at how smooth the ride was. Also, I'm... More

No need to book this tour just turn up and wait fir the next boat. Great value for $25. We saw several crocodiles up close and personal as well as other wildlife. Our young guide was very knowledgable about the crocodiles and his Indian tribe. He was also fearless with the crocodiles teasing them so they were right beside our... More

Great time, saw lots of alligators, airboat is open so view of the everglades is great. Only 5 people in the boat so not crowded like lots of the other tour companies. The guide is great, with lots of interesting facts. Visited a private island where the alligators walk freely so another chance for up close viewing. And the boat... More

We are a family of 5, and it was just us and the guide on our ride. It was not quite 70 degrees out, and despite being from UP North, we were cold with the amount of wind traveling at high speed! Bring a sweatshirt if you have it. The gators were abound! We saw a big one whose tail... More

The guide was fantastic. Plus, the airboat was small enough for everyone to see and take pictures of the animals. We had great interaction with the gators. Front desk staff could have been friendlier, and they only have port-o-let's instead of bathrooms, but I am 100% glad we chose Buffalo Tiger. Tip: Bring your own bug spray!

My wife and I will never forget this wonderful trip. Fabian, our guide and driver, is a member of the Miccosukee Indian tribe. His knowledge of the area, his daring interaction with alligators, and his respect for his heritage as he conducted this tour were inspiring.

One of my bucket items since "Flipper", it was better than I thought. Even Mrs Njorl who gets motion sick enjoyed herself. Boat ride smooth, alligators close, not too loud, and the lady at the ticket center let us use her bug spray. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed the reconstructed village and the cultural history. The red... More

I wanted to get my husband on an airboat. I wanted the longest ride for the price for him. This didn't disappoint, the tour was about 50min. We saw our first wild alligator while waiting for our tour at the dock! As soon as the airboat got going, it felt surreal. It was so awesome I almost cried! We saw... More

Our hotel recommended this tour, (there are lots to choose from). We decipded on a private tour ( for 4) and were not disappointed. Eric, our guide was a local lad, incredibly knowledgeable about the huge area of saw grass we whizzed through, showed us lots of local wild birds and inevitably the alligators. These are encouraged to be about... More

Beautiful day in a stunning environment. The parking was easy and the boat left shortly after we arrived. We saw several gators up close.
