We were lucky enough to do this tour on the day of the National Parks Service 100 Birthday. We hoped on the open air trolley and only travelled 50 metres to find our first mother Gator and baby in the water on the side of the trail. The Ranger was very knowledgeable about the various species of wildlife we encountered... More

OK, so we went the wrong time of year (better Nov.-March) and the wrong time of day. (Catch it first thing in the morning). Still the 6 mile tour out to an observation post and back on a guided tour tram was the way to go. Had we walked it our sneakers would have melted on the paved road. You... More

Visiting Shark Valley in Everglades National Park is a memorable and awe inspiring experience no matter how you choose to do it, hiking, biking, or taking the tram tour. For the best educational experience without major physical exertion, I recommend the two hour tram tour. With a naturalist as tour guide and an experienced driver/spotter, you will be able to...

Shark Valley, Everglades National Park is on the north end of the park. It is pristine and quiet. We were going to ride our bikes the 15 miles round trip but it was raining so we opted for the Tram Tour. We're glad we did. The Park Ranger was so good and informative. We learned an awful lot on top... More

Being that it is incredible hot in Florida in July, the tram tour was a good option. We did see people riding bikes and walking the path but with the ranger led tram ride you get a narrated trip and have multiple eyes looking out for wildlife. The ride took about 2 hours and midway thru you get off at... More

the walkway right of the visitor center is ok, you may see allis and pure nature, but the parking lot is expensive, so park outside by the street - there are a few places where you can kleave your car and walk in in 5 minutes- we didn`t use the tram cause we saw more by walking along the little...

My family and I have gone on this tour about 5 times. There is always something different to see. This is a wonderful way to explore the beautiful Everglades! This is also completely handicapped accessible. My nephew's power wheelchair can do everthing from the tram ride to the amazing tower.

We took an 11-o'clock tour with the tram. It was good and we learned a lot about the wildlife and Everglades eco systems from the knowledgeable guide. Unfortunately we only saw a small alligator hidden in the bushes, but that was because it's July and they are hiding deep under water. It was extremely hot, but there were actually not... More

The Visitor centre in Shark Valley combined With the Tram Tour gives you a good introduction to the amazing Everglades. We knew in advance that July is not the perfect time to watch the wildlife, and we Only Saw one juvenile alligator and some birds. Our guide Brian gave an excellent lecture about the history of Florida and todays envorimental... More

Plenty of wildlife (including alligators) and very good tour guides. If it is especially raining the sceneries are out of world. Don't miss it, You can also cover the loop in bicycle for those who are physically fit. Highlight of our Florida trip
