This airboat tour was so amazing. Definitely more than I expected. Our guide was Ernie and he was absolutely excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and provided interesting history about the Miccosukee Native American Tribe in addition to a really fun airboat ride. During the tour we stopped at a Miccosukee village and were able to walk around and take photos... More

Didn't need a reservation just walked in and away we went. Ernie was our guide and very informative, you could tell he cares very much about his heritage and the land. He told us a lot about the area and it's history. He loves his alligators even kisses them. LOL. It wasn't your fancy, commercialized tour, it was what a... More

Arrived without booking and were on the Everglades within 30 mins. Fantastic experience both on the boat, skimming our way across the water and getting close up and personal with the alligators-so close in fact, I was grateful to hear they are night feeders! The guide was friendly and informative. The boat was a good size without feeling 'touristy'. The... More

We had Fabian as our driver and guide. He made the trip a really good experience. We saw several gators, also up really close. This place is not that touristy as some of the other companies, and thats a real good thing!

Passed many other airboat tour places on the way to Buffalo Tiger. This is the one to go to. Eric, our tour guide, was informative and went out of his way to show us alligators, birds and gave us the history of the Indian village we toured. His grandfather was Buffalo Tiger, the man who opened the place. Other people... More

Perfect tour for those looking for an insight into the Everglades. We saw quite a l alligators in differing sizes, it was thrilling to see them up close! The tour guide (Fabian) was nice and down to earth. He treated the alligators respectfully and made noises so the gators would come out of their hiding spots. There was no alligator... More

We read the reviews and that is the only reason we passed by the other airboat places with buses and lots of people. And are we ever glad we did!! This is our second airboat tour and the first one doesn't even begin to compare to our experience here. Our guide, Fabian, was personable and very, very knowledgeable. It felt... More

Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Smaller boats are much more personal and engaging (ours seated 8 maximum) and our tour guide was third generation native to the Everglades. The tour was a refreshing change from the general slick tourist tour. We saw alligators within arms reach but the approach was respectful and the guide was more conservationist than performer....

I have done this tour twice and I loved it, doesn't have any zoo, animals behind bars or circus type of entertainment harming or disrespecting the animals,They are just tribe people talking about the everglades heir historic ecosystem, history and showing the alligators they know how to deal with masterfully . the best tour.

Cheaper and more personal than the other tours. They got up close to the gators and fed and touched them! Very informative and fun! Saw a mom with babies and even a 12 foot male! It was cool to have a pit stop on a native island. Very neat!
