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!

Went on the tram tour with two young children. It was really nice. We went on the first tour of the morning (9 am), which was wise as I imagine it can get a little hot later in the day. Our guide was clearly interested in the park, its wildlife and ecology in general. She was engaging, entertaining and informative.... More

Traveling with a family of 6, this was our first real visit into the national park boundary. Apart from a couple short hiking trails, the tram tour is the only thing to do at the Shark Valley entrance, unless you choose to bike ride the whole 15 miles. It was a fairly relaxing two hours and our tour guide not... More

Delightful Tram Tour across the Middle of the Everglades. Half way round you stop at a outlook tower and see some amazing wildlife. Fab for bird enthusiasts but the alligators and Turtles were the star animals for us. The tour guide was both friendly and informative so we certainly came away knowing more about the area and feeling we got... More

We rented bicycles and rode around the paved loop road. I believe it was about 15 miles round trip. We saw dozens of alligators and quite a few turtles and herons as well. The route is very flat, but it can get super hot, so bring extra water and sunscreen. One word of caution - there is very limited cel... More

I cannot figure out how anyone would give this tram tour a good rating. We were 6 people and we all found it to be very boring. In Key West we met another couple who agreed it was very boring. There was almost nothing to see except saw grass and some birds. The guide was a little unsure of himself... More

We had an awesome time on this tram tour. Our guide, Eric, was a fountain of information. The first part of the tour was relatively quiet regarding wildlife but Eric included a lot of information about the flora and fauna and the Everglades in general. The tour stopped at the observation tower where there was a fabulous view of Shark... More

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
