As we only had one day in the area, we wanted something which would let us see the Everglades easily and quickly. We booked a Shark Valley Tram Tour based on TripAdvisor reviews and its proximity to Miami, where we were staying. It was well worth it. The tour itself was excellent, with lots of wildlife sightings (not just alligators).... More

As we only had one day to spend on the Everglades we decided to go on this tram tour in Shark Valley to see as much as possible without driving too far. We reserved tickets for the 11am tour in advance (they only do 4 tours in the off-season: 9.30, 11.00, 2.00 and 4.00) so had to be there 10.30... More

We enjoyed our tram trip and the guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Unfortunately it was very wet and windy which detracted somewhat from the experience. It would be extremely pleasant in fine weather. If you are keen on cycling this would be a good way to explore as you can stop whenever you want to take photos but you would... More

Mike was an awesome tour guide....so educated about all things park and wildlife..yet kept your attention and was never... More

A highly enjoyable tour with our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, Tami. Read other reviews on trip advisor saying that this was boring, and we can honestly say that THEY ARE NOT TRUE! We got to see tons of wildlife including lots of alligators - especially from the observation tower. If you want to get close to nature in the everglades,... More

After a week of weird, bad experiences on our tour through Florida we arrived at the tram tour in sour moods, ready to be disappointed again. Thankfully we found an experience that was well deserving of all the positive reviews. The gators were out in full force, we had an awesome tour guide, and it was something the kids will... More

We very much enjoyed the ride through the Everglades. The tram ride was informative and fun. We would have liked to do the loop on bikes but we wanted the information. Seemed like the right amount of time. Might be long for little kids.

We tried out the tram ride a couple of weeks ago. It was a nice way to tour Shark Valley. The tour is narrated and you learn a lot about the area and the wildlife. The tram gives you about 20 minutes to tour the observation tower. The staff was friendly. We even go to see a baby anhinga on... More

A very interesting tour in tram, in two hours, with a very professional guide with opportunity to see alligators, wild birds and a natural park in a splendid sunny day! Very interesting also the possibility to gain the tower where to see Everglades at 360 degrees!!!!! A very interesting tour!

Impressive tram tour with a very experienced guide, watching birds turtles and of course gators all along the 19 mile circuit. Unforgatable!
