We went on a Sunday for the 11:00am tram tour. We took two babies ages 2 and 1 year old. They loved it! Our tram driver Taylor, and tram guide Ricky were awesome! Ricky has immense knowledge of the Everglades and made the 2 hour tram trip fly by! Parking was $30 and the tram for adults was $25 ($19 for senior citizens), and kids under 3 don’t pay. All in all, awesome family fun!

We took the 4 PM tour. Both the driver and the tour guide were very helpful and informative. It was interesting learning about the various competing priorities for the water that is the life-blood of the everglades. Since this was August, the height of the wet and warm season, we didn't see lots of wild-life, limited to quite a few herons and egrets, several anhingas, a couple of black racer snakes, and one alligator, though that gator was just beside the road.

I was there on July 3rd when we got to the tower the tram company F150 was blocking the ramp to the tower. On the ride back the female driver in the truck flew past us three times and once ran an old lady off the trail.

This was my second time visiting Shark Valley but my first time riding the tram. It really added to the experience. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgable. We were able to see lots of birds and wildlife. Even in a slight downpour we had a blast! Worth every penny.

If you are anywhere near Miami, please do this tour. It's really good with helpful staff and a beautiful environment and so up-close, you will see so much. There is small gift shop where you can buy water. Amazing wildlife can be seen from the open tram, I recommend you sit toward the front and at the side, we saw a mother gator and her babies along with endless birdlife. The ride is a decent amount of time with the vantage view-point half way through. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable. Highly recommend. A $30 Everglades National Park fee is required to enter along with the tour fee. The Park fee lasts 7 days.
