This was a hidden gem of an experience!! We were visiting the Ft Myers area during spring break and the beaches were jam packed so we were looking for alternatives and found Babcock Preserve Eco Tour!! Ticket prices were very affordable for a 90 minute tour through a preserve/swamp that has 4 different eco systems and is a working ranch!! Not only were there tons of gators but there were heritage cattle and wild pigs (with many cute piglets) that come running after the swamp buggy for corn! We saw tons of different cranes and other birds!! Kids to grandparents enjoyed the ride! I would definitely recommend checking out Babcock Eco Tours!! Our guide Andrea was very knowledgeable about the history of the land and the animals roaming about

My wife and I went here to go on a tour and we had an exceptional experience ! The bus driver and tour guide was Brad who did a great job with his knowledge of the ranch and It's history . The gator shack restaurant was incredible as well. Darlene and Kerry made us feel as if we were having lunch with friends and the food was great . We enjoyed the Gator shack so much we will come back here again even if it's just for lunch . Great job lady's oh and Brad you were good as well !!!!

We had a great time on the buggy tour , saw lots of alligators, pigs and more ! Don’t hesitate to go especially with little ones. The gift shop was very reasonably priced we did purchase a few souvenirs.
