Turned up here, and tour was about to leave. Make sure you DEET up, as there are loads of mosquitoes. They have a sign at the gift shop with the "threat level". Maybe about 20 people on the tour, but our guide was fairly knowledgeable, stopped several times so that we could see baby alligator, and turtles (only just, and... More

On our honeymoon to Florida, we visited the Everglades Safari Park. We felt our experience was worth every dime. The park was beautiful, the staff was entertaining and considerate. We enjoyed seeing both the alligator shows and the wild gators on the airboat tour. We even got to hold the baby alligator after the show. Gus was a terrific captain.... More

We wouldn't do this again...not much to see and we weren't told much about what we were looking at. Perhaps we expected too much, but other eco tours have been head and shoulders above this one.

I just felt like Lara Croft! "Flying" in my airboat ride! Loved to see baby alligators in their natural nest! Nice experience in the overcraft boat!

Visiting Miami in August 2014, we decided to visit the everglades. What a wonderful idea and a change from the usual attractions.also educational for our grandson and the adults alike. Instead of going on the air boat with about 20/25 other people,we decided to take a smaller air boat that holds five people plus the driver....best idea....we were able to... More

The tour in the airboat was cool, but a bit short. The wrestling show was kind of entertaining to watch because of the speaker, but nothing really happened there.

The airboat ride was a nice experience for my son. He was excited to see and hold an alligator. The show at the end of the tour was fun and informative. The lady in the souvenir shop was lovely!

Our tour guide was enthusiastic and very nice. It was very hot outside. We had the last tour and he jumped in the Everglades and swam around. That was the highlight! We saw an alligator in the swamp but it didn't move. The boat ride was fun. But don't need to do it again. U only need an hour at... More
