We thoroughly enjoyed this 2 hour tram ride around the Shark Valley Trail. Our guide, Anthony, was excellent. We saw more than our share of alligators of all sizes - up front and personal - you literally could touch them; but that's illegal. The Tower is cool and you can see schools of large fish meandering in the adjacent lake.... More

Shark Valley Tram Tours is fantastic! Our guide was extremely informative and helped us see as much wildlife as was possible. This 2-hour, 18 mile tram ride takes you through the heart of the Everglades to a lookout tower and back. We saw hundreds of alligators, most of them huge, and thousands of birds. I was amazed at the sheer... More

We were lucky and saw dozens of alligators, from babies up to 12 feet long males. Many beautiful and rare birds, loads of fish, turtles etc. Wildlife just a foot away from you. The tour is comfortable and there is lots and lots of information during these 2 hours. Be aware of the tip at the end of the tour,... More

Our guide Carmen was witty and engaging while describing the animal and plant life of the Everglades, the importance of the restoration of this area, and the hundreds of bird and other animal species who call the Everglades home. Who knew that alligators and crocodiles are responsible for the creation and maintenance of the Everglades, or that there are over... More

2-hour tram tour narrated by a knowledgeable National Park Service professional with deep experience of the Everglades. A great way to see and learn about the river of grass, its past and future (we hope), and its native flora and fauna. Many alligators, birds, and great scenery.

For a 2 hour tour, this was well worth it. We got to see a bunch of wildlife and our tour guide was very helpful in pointing out the animals and very knowledgeable in what they were and their history. It was a very informative trip and I would do it again. A few cons: For someone into photography, it... More

The tram gets up close to all of the amazing wildlife in the Everglades, Alligators, Baby Alligators and hundreds of birds. The Ranger provides an excellent educational commentary throughout the tour. Very good value for money.

We took the sunset tram trip (4-6 pm). The guide was great and knew everything about the different birds and gators and the area itself. We saw hundreds of bird, a lot alligators and even babies. We even saw a gator eating a snake :-) Great trip. I can highly recommend the trip.

We went with friends who were a bit skeptical about the time and money to be expended, but we all agreed it was well worth the time. Our guide, Carmen, was great, very pleasant with jokes and much information on the ecosystem of the Everglades. We saw more alligators than we could count, and birds that we began to recognize...

I had always wanted to see the Everglades. It is one thing to drive the Tamiami Trail through it but the narrated tour was fantastic. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He spoke very clearly so us with less than good hearing had not trouble hearing and understanding. He pointed out so many species of birds and other inhabitants... More
