Can't understand the bad reviews of this place?.....we first visited several years ago and loved it so much as we saw huge alligators and went on the buggy tour with the best tour guide ever! Can't remember her name now but she was fab!
We then went back to Orlando with friends last year and decided to visit Billy Swamp again and take them there as we loved it....the little huts and the snake show, the huge resident tortoise and the airboat ride is all a great day out......haven't bothered with the other airboat rides nearer Orlando as they all say 'you may see a few small gators'!!, well that's no good!!.....go to Billy Swamp, you will see loads of HUGE ones.....
