My husband and I enjoyed the noon guided tour of this area of the Everglades. Out of the control of the guides was the constant talking of adults over his narration. It was very distracting for those of us who wanted to listen and learn. Screaming young children were also a problem. Seating on the tram was tight so it... More

Had a knowledgable guide. Saw 50 - 75 alligators, anhinga, cormorant, turtles, many other birds, and even a crocodile. Learned so much about the Everglades. All 4 of us adults enjoyed it. Must also walk the Anhinga Trail on your drive out.

This is to confirm what others have previously written. This is a very nice experience. We had an informative guide and learned a number of things. While wildlife was not rich on much of the trip there was enough to see. The observation deck area, however, has lots of things to see.

The tram tour was great. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. She gave us a lot of information and was quick to point out fauna and flora along the way. We did stop at one point and had the opportunity to walk in the Everglades barefoot with her. If you chose not to walk, you still could see and... More

We had a terrific time on the tram tour. The guide was extremely knowledgable. We learned more than we ever thought we would. Saw a lot of wild life, and a few gators laying around. I would highly recommend this in addition to an airboat ride with Down South Air Boats. You will not be disappointed. We are planning to... More

We took the tram tour today. It was a beautiful day. The weather was wonderful (luckily). We took the 9 am tour. There were alligators, lots of birds, turtles and fish. The tram tour guide gave lots of information about the climate, ecology, native people, animals and was polite. They say to get there 30 minutes before the tour. So... More

I am glad we took this tram tour, it was a nice overview of the Everglades. Our guide was very good and gave lots of information. The front seats of the tram can accommodate a wheelchair tucked underneath. You are seated for the entire tour while the wildlife, foliage and everglades life in general is explained to you. The two... More

We continue to return to this particular segment of the Everglades National Park because we always find it so unique, varied and full of animal life. It's a National Park so if you are a Senior you can use your National Park Pass. You can rent bikes, hike or jog down to the tower but the best bet is the... More

My family wanted to maximize our visit to the Everglades and had a small baby with us. We decided on this tour and were extremely pleased with it. We saw a ton of wildlife (baby alligators included) and our tour guide (Forest) was extremely knowledgeable. The website suggests making reservations but we were able to get in even on an... More

We booked in advance for the 10am tour and got up really early to get there in time. I'd recommend coming in the morning as we could drive straight in and park up whereas when we were leaving people were queing for ages to get in. The tour was informative and we saw loads of alligators (even baby alligators) and... More
