Takes 2 hours, including stop at observation tower. Saw a variety of birds, and several alligators, including two on road. Informative guide. Worth booking ahead. Also need to pay $25 park fee. Take some water on ride as it is hot!

The Everglades are a wondrous place and this tram tour gives you a glimpse, often a fleeting glimpse, of the area. We saw about 6 types of birds mostly ones we had seen along the road.... mostly quick peaks from a distance. Many interesting things were visible to the 2 people on the side of the trams of the sighting... More

Walking the 15 mile round trip path to the observation tour deep into Shark Valley is possible and we have done it, but the tram ride lets you have a relaxing ride and really concentrate on the wildlife hidden away in the vegetation. Contrary to some of the previous visitors, we experienced a very knowledgeable guide who admitted that he... More

The Rangers on the Tram tour do a great job of pointing out not only the vast park, but give you every chance to see creatures big and small living in the Park. The two hour tram tour is excellent. This park changes every month so whenever you visit you will see it in a different light.

I've done a little bit of everything in the Everglades. I've biked out to the observation tower and had a great time but today I brought my family. since I've never taken the tram tour I thought it would be fun and informative to try something new to me. The guide gathered the group before departure and explained we would... More

Perfect trip for someone to see the Everglades and pick up some of the history. The park rangers who take you out are obviously very knowledgeable and will answer almost anything. We were fairly lucky that we got to see quite a bit. 9:30am start is best as it's little cooler although not much.

Great, the tram (on wheels) runs for about 2 hrs in the Everglades. Nice explanations from the Rangers as always with the Rangers. You will get all the required explanations on the local vegetation and the animals.....Alligators included.

We stopped in to see the park which you can walk, bike and/or take the tram. We chose to take the tram due to the humidity and mosquito's and did not regret it! Our guide was entertaining, informative and made an educational trip interesting and fun...he had a great personality!

We weren't expecting to pay a fee to use the tram at The Everglades National Park-Shark Valley location, but it was well worth the price! Our park ranger was extremely informative and Frank, our tram driver, obviously loves his job. He got really excited about each and every wildlife viewing opportunity! It was a 2 hour trip great for all... More

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
