Don't know what else could be said about this tour. We had a fantastic time. My 6 year old son really had a blast. My 18 month old daughter was too young to appreciate. during the summer, Don't Forget your mosquito repellent and your sun block. Just one last thing...everybody says the tour is great, we were a group of... More

I decided on this tour after looking at many reviews on TA. It was amazing - our group was 3 adults and 2 children and our tour only included 2 others. Our tour guide, Ernie, was fantastic - it was obvious that he intimately knew the area and was able to call out to the alligators and it's amazing how... More

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

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
