A fascinating site to see in South Florida is the Everglades. For many years, we have recommended the tour at Shark Valley (nothing to do with sharks) at the northern side of Everglades National Park. This is a great tour for first time visitors to the Everglades giving tourists and locals a wide, yet in depth, survey of the far-reaching... More

My wife and I had taken the tour a few years ago and were excited to take our daughter. We were very disappointed since with all the rain in Florida this year we saw only a handful of alligators and birds. Before we had seen hundreds of each. The guides and everything was pleasant, especially the greeters in the welcome... More

We tried the Flamingo Backcountry boat tour, the Everglades city 10,000 island boat tour, the Shark Valley Tram Tour, and the Anhinga trail. We found the Tram tour the best - the guide was very informative and we saw plenty of birds and alligators, even an abundance of anhingas. We'd recommend the Tram tour as excellent and the other boat... More

This was such a great experience. The tram ride was 15 miles long. The entire time we rode our guide kept up a running commentary on the landscape, and the plants and animals we encountered. We saw alligators and their young, birds of so many varieties as well as turtles and butterflies. At the halfway mark, there is a limestone... More

Saw many alligators, birds, on a nice tram ride. Interesting information, a pleasant ride, and lots to see. Many gators, and birds so close to the tram. One of top highlights of the trip for sure. Go on an early tram ride in the day, and in the dry season now, pleasantly no mosquitos.

We went there on a very rainy day. We still got to see lots of unique birds and of course allagators

If you can't walk too far or can't ride a bicycle, then take the tram but sit on the LEFT side.Unfortunately, we sat on the right side and missed the majority of the alligator sightings.For the price, it's not worth it.The narrator is friendly and provides interesting information.But $24 for adults and $19 for seniors is way too much.

Book your tickets for the tram before you go. Be prepared to wait in a line of traffic as they let a vehicle in when one leaves we waited 35 minutes do not turn around and leave the wait is worth it. Tram ride is 2 hours with a stop at viewing tower. Our guide Bob had been at he... More

We really enjoyed our tour of Shark Valley. We were fortunate to be able to see lots of wildlife and enjoy the park in the sun and breeze. The best part though? The tour guide Tammy! If you are lucky enough to get a tour with Tammy, you'll learn so much. She has so much knowledge to share and is... More

I thought this tour was excellent. We had a very knowledgeable guide who did not stop with interesting information. We got to see many water birds up close standing and then when they took off, offering a unique viewing of these beautiful birds in flight up close. For the price, this is a value. In addition to the $24 dollar... More
