Unless you are sat at the side it is impossible to see anything. My husband and I were sat in the middle of a row. We consoled ourselves with the thought that to be fair, when we got out at the half way point we would be able to switch seats, but no, we were told to use the same... More

Biked out to the observation deck but due to the storms were asked to ride back with the tram group (liability reasons I assume). It was wonderful! We found the tram ride to be not only informative but interactive and fun! We are teens and were skeptical at first but became very engaged- it was not boring at all. Recommend!

This guided tour is a 2 hour tour on a diesel powered tram. It goes from the Shark Valley visitor centre to the observation tower along a winding path which skirts some of the alligator paths and through the everglades. The tour is informative and the guides are always willing to answer questions. The observation tower - some 40 feet... More

Don't miss this tour of a portion of the Everglades as it's very interesting and you may see lots of wildlife who make their home here. It lasts two hours with a stop at an observation tower but our guide made it so enjoyable yet educational that it went quickly. We saw lots of alligators and a wide variety of... More

This is a great alternative to an airboat trip if you have small children/babies. The tram goes slowly and there is plenty of animals and scenery to look at. The tour guide and driver were very friendly and knowledgeable and made an effort to make sure we saw a lot. If you go in the fall/winter, try to make the... More

This is certaoinly the lazy way to go into the deeper reaches of the everglades, we could ( should) have gone on the available bikes. But it was very hot and we are getting old so.....our guide on rhe way out gave us lots of very interesting insights into the ecology and geomorphology of the everglades. Sadly, and it may... More

Decided to do this instead of an airboat ride and were not disappointed. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and we learned a lot. It is very hot so the shades of the train were welcome. Saw alligators, even baby alligators, turtles and a lot of birds. Brilliant day!

funny accent---> Oh yes spending $30 per adult on a overpriced tram tour that takes you 14 miles through shark vally. Stop at this observation tower that is not at all in very crappy condition that "lookes like a world war 2 bunker" with rust everywhere and a top nailed up crudely with nails and planks because there is no...

This tram tour is the perfect way to closely view the Everglades as your guild teaches about the entire eco-system and all of its inhabitants during a two hour, fifteen mile loop ride. Our guild and driver were Sylvia and Eugene, a married couple of 61 years and the most entertaining and informative guides you will ever meet. Anytime an... More

Took a tram tour with Giovanni as our guide and Michael as our driver. It was a thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours. Saw the only Croc in the park plus alligators one of which was laid in the road! Birds, turtles and spiders too. Guide very informative and passionate. Worth every penny, just go!
