The Everglades is an important ecosystem for Florida and Florida Keys. Both man and animal depend on these ecosystem. Shark Valley Tram Tours give you a tour of the northern reaches of the Everglades National Park from the comfort of a tram. The NPS Ranger that narrated the tour was very informative and entertaining. You can walk or bike the... More

Loved our tram tour through the Everglades in Shark Valley. Saw lots of Alligators along the way and the driver was super... he stopped so we could take pictures of the gators, birds, etc... whatever was interesting. The narrator was a bit difficult to understand since we were in the second tram and the speaker system didn't seem to be... More

The commentary by the ranger, Forrest, was excellent but it would have been nice to see more wildlife. Unfortunately the driver, Giovanni, decided he was in a hurry so we saw an alligator (or 10) flash by us at a rate of knots as he hurried back to the safety of the car park. We were on the second tram... More

It may seem a bit high priced, but it is a seven mile loop and worth the time! Your volunteer tour guide and driver have a great deal of information and sharp eyes so you won't be disappointed. If you happen to go on one of the hotter days, it is also a great place to get out of the... More

Left for a day trip from Marco Island down alligator alley and had heard about the shark river ! Great place to go to learn more about the Everglades. The tour guide was very well informed and kept the ride interesting. Saw plenty of Gators and birds and the area they all live in. Made a great day trip !

One of the best things we did on our vacation to Florida. I didn't want the tour to end. Saw a lot of wildlife. Ranger Forest and Mike were great. Next time, I think I'd rent bikes and see the trip that way, since we experienced the tram ride already. Learned a lot about the everglades and the wildlife. Even... More

Well….if you pass it by car it’s worth a visit. But after we paid $44 (and 8 dollar to enter the park) to get in the van, they told us, you better come back in the winter, then you have a bigger change see Alligators…..well great! Thanks! During the ride I thought the driver was going for a new track... More

I loved the tram tour. Ranger Chris was an excellent guide, teaching us about the history and wildlife of the Everglades, and driver / spotter Robert found lots for us to see. We saw alligators, turtles, snakes, herons, egrets, and anhingas, and enjoyed the short climb to the top of the observation tower for a panoramic view of the park.... More

On a slightly cloudy September Florida morning we took a trip to Shark Valley, we decided not to ride the tram but to hire bikes. You probably wouldn't want to do this on a very hot day! The ride is on a perfectly flat path and runs for a total of 15 miles. As someone who doesn't ride a bike,... More

In case you are planning to visit the Everglades and are not sure what you want to do, go for this tram tour. It is just the best! The ranger was great, knowing so many interesting things and giving details about every single animal and plant we saw! We event stepped into the waters of Everglades. Part of the tram... More
