Ernie was our tour guide and he was great. Plenty of information and gators. I did this tour by other recommendations and they are all true. This is by far the best air boat tour I have ever done. There is some history of the Everglades and the MiccosukeeIndians. Great 45 minutes in the Everglades.

All the airboats ride are best when combined with a beautiful sunset. Boatrides are short very commercial and not much interesting . Very little to see. Choose the last ride which occurs around or after 4pm

We were very happy with our airboat tour with Buffalo Tigers. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and we saw lots of alligators. Good information from the tour guides who are native Americans living on the reserve. Great tour.

The airboat operator Ernest was fantastic, so informative and we got to see a lot of different gators and the places where the local Indians used to live. Super photo opportunity and felt very safe. Also, as Miami is very hot I was worried about being out there too long without finding any gators but we were out there for... More

After reviewing many other tours in the area on TripAdvisor and seeing that on a lot this time of year you were not even seeing any alligators we were concerned, after all, isn't that the point. After reading many great reviews of Buffalo Tiger we decided to stop off on our trip from Naples to Miami. This tour DID NOT... More

It was the second time in the Everglades for me and my family. We think that the Miccosukee guides are genuine and experts. Thay answered to all of our questions and curiosity about gators and animals of Everglades. The boat was confortable, really fast in the water and my kids enjoyed the experience so much!

We returned to this airboat tour because we had went out with them years ago and were very pleased. They get up close and personal with the gators. We had been out with other airboat companies in the area and they didn't get as close to the wildlife as we would have liked. The tour guide was knowledgeable about everything... More
