Our tour had problems due to operator error and the tram overheating. Despite this, the guide was very informative. The tour is a great way to get a good introduction to the park. You will spot wildlife along the way. The best part of the tour is the tower in the middle; however, I felt as if we were rushed... More

We just barely made the 930 tram tour, which in August is usually nearly empty and of course, this time was nearly full. But we made it. Our guide and driver were very entertaining. The guide's name eludes me but he kept saying our driver's name was Richard :) Richard was fantastic at spotting gators in the little puddles. Got... More

Tram tour was a great way to see the Everglades in the heat. We saw many alligators as well as birds and plant and flowers. The Park Ranger was very informative and she did a wonderful job. It was very hot but not so bad on the tram as you got some moving air. Great way to see an overview... More

LOVE LOVE LOVED our day here. Being on holiday in Miami we knew we couldn't miss the Everglades but we were so lucky we picked the right place to come. The tram tour guided by Tami was so interesting, I could've sat there all day and listened to her stories about the wildlife there it was awesome. We saw SO... More

If you are near Miami, this is a must do. If you leave the Miami area around 8:15 am, you'll get to Everglades Nat'l Park's Shark Valley entrance in plenty of time for the first tram tour at 9:30. In summer, the morning tours are best because you'll see more wildlife. We saw many alligators and an abundance of birds... More

We took the last ride at 4:00 pm and saw plenty of wildlife despite it being summer when typically the viewings are limited. We had an excellent tour guide Tammi who was very knowledgeable and great value to have! If there was just one place you had to visit in the Everglades national park then highly recommend this one. Great... More

We weren't much impressed with this tour. We had already seen enough gators around in that area (at other attractions). The narrator was trying hard, but there wasn't much interesting to see. The only active and interesting area is the creek or canal that runs along the return route, it had a lot gators, birds and other activity. It was... More

We loved this 10 years ago and loved it just as much this time. Make reservations just to be sure. Informative, interesting, the time flies. I would not miss this. Our gps sent us past the location. Turn in where the Everglades National Park sign is.

Wonderful guides and a chance to see everything from the safety of the tram. We got up close and personal with a great many alligators. Amazing. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.

But, this tram tour was worth the time and expense for us. The Park Naturalist was perfect. It was our first time to the Everglades, and even though it was in the summer (June), we saw an amazing array of wildlife. The most alligators and baby alligators we have every seen, which was just perfect for us! Happily surprised, and... More
