NICE Run by the elder of the Micosukee indians. We decided for this company due to the reviews un trip advisor. Yes, it was nice - no unnecessary american 'beat around the bush' talking about nothing but sharing lots of facts. No empty jokes, no pushy sales of souvenirs. Seems like a nice eco-tourist tour. Worthy the price.

It well deserved the drive. The tour was really fun and the scenery was stunningly beautiful. Our tour guide was friendly and knew his business. Highly recommend this place! You will have a rememberable trip at Everglades!

Like other reviewers we passed by a few places that looked like a circus and decided to stop and give this one a try. We are very glad we did and really enjoyed it and the price was reasonable too. Eric was our guide and couldn't have been any nicer or done a better job. The alligators were like his... More

We were very glad we passed over the super-touristy-looking companies. Buffalo Tiger's was small and relaxed, not corny or pushy, and we had a great time. Ernie was a patient and informative guide, happy to address questions and provide more information than I think we would have received anywhere else. Getting to stop on the island was an added bonus... More

We checked out a few airboat tours online and this airboat tour caught our attention. We arrived and purchased our tickets and were told that the next tour left in 15 minutes. Meantime there was an alligator by the boating dock and the assistant gave us lots of interesting information about alligators and local birds. When our guide(Eric) got us... More

first: via online booking you can save 3$ per ticket. They're located in the Indian reservoir and have a few boats. When we arrived we had to wait 10 minutes which gave us time to stroll around a little bit. The tour itself was very informative and fun. Also got to see one of the old Indian islands where this...

We had an excellent guide who explaned well how things work in the Everglades. We saw a few alligators, birds and rode around the swamp area. You can just go there, they have boats leaving every 20 minutes. They also have snackbar for lunch.

We chose tour this based on other reviews and it did not disappoint! Our guide was great and made sure that we saw a ton of gators! He patiently answered every one of my kids questions. This tour does not come with a gator show because the show IS the boat tour! We stopped and saw several gators right up... More

The straight road from Miami in to the Everglades is festooned with promotional banners enticing visitors to tours.....drive on past the commercial ones and invest in the Buffalo Tiger team. It is the best value and the most authentic as their ancestors worked this land for centuries. We got there early and were in a smaller group. Fabian gave us... More
