This was a fantastic experience and would recommend it to anyone! I have 8 yr old twins (boy and girl) they both equally enjoyed the boat tour and especially holding Snappy the baby alligator! The tour guide was knowledgable and would give us advanced notice of an upcoming alligator. Our ride lasted about 45 mins to an hour. We saw... More

My girlfriend and myself took her kids on our way to Miami Beach, couldn't have asked for a better stop on the way. The kids absolutely loved it, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and very well spoken. The tour lasted about an hour with several gators out to soak up some sun. We had the pleasure of seeing a...

Reasonably priced, safe equipment, experienced drivers and tour guides and lots to see! Go see the Alligator Show after your ride...it's worth it!

Well, it was fun going through the grasses at top speed. Saw a couple alligators, but it was over very quickly... about 30 minutes. The boat was very crowded and as fate would have it, we were on the RIGHT... the gators were on the LEFT. LOL. The park was OK. We thought this places would be a highlight of... More

We did our second private tour of the Everglades at Everglades Safari Park. Our tour guide RJ was extremely knowledgeable. A private tour is the way to go. One hour in the Everglades will put you completely at ease. A definite must.

The airboat tour was a lot of fun thanks to our hilarious guide. He took his time to let us stand on the boat and look around to see who spotted a gator first. Walking around the park afterwards wad amazing too, so beautiful

This is a pleasant experience, the place has come a long way in 10 years; I don't remember a restaurant anyway. Nice staff, the airboat rides are not rough like an ocean boat can be, toddlers are free even though they love to see the alligators. Just make sure you bring cash to tip and for the restaurant.

This busy attraction was great to see in March during the afternoon. No bugs to speak of, and the weather was not to hot to immobilize you. Richard Dawkins talked about nature theories that explained the existence of "organized complexity," and the Everglades National Park tour certainly looks simple at face value [water, hammocks, grasses, wildlife], but when I had...

A good way to spend the afternoon. Came with family. Did the airboat ride which was fun and informative. Very pretty scenes of the Everglades. Saw a few alligators along the way. Then came back to the park and walked around for a while. Saw a lot more alligators, snakes and other creatures. Ate lunch in the cafe. Great stop... More
