This is a wonderful place to walk, cycle or catch the tram tour. The guides are friendly and informative - clearly they love what they do. We had a lovely few hours here and I only wish we had more time to explore.

We went midday biking the loop and didn’t see any alligators but one turtle and birds. It was extremely hot as there is no shade for a long stretch of time on the 15 mile loop.

Winter is a better time to visit, however the tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave me a good understanding of the Everglades. Strongly recommend it.
