I took my son and his family on this 90 minute swamp buggy tour. I have actually been on the tour 3 other times with friends. The grandkids loved it! My son unfortunately missed the experience but because the rest of the family had such fun they will be back with visiting guests. Every time I have been it has been a different experience. Each time I learned something new. All in all a very fun day out!

Wonderful tour! Brad, our tour guide, was fabulous...he has so much knowledge about the ecology and wildlife of this area & is happy to share it! We went during the transition from the wet to dry season and had no problem with bugs. My favorite part was the alligator 'nursery' where a huge mama was watching over all sizes of babies, from newborns to 2 footers. We highly recommend this tour!

We loved our tour! So happy we went. Planning to go back with friends. We were a family from 20s to 80s so type of trip choices doesn’t apply to us. We go on a Real Florida trip every year on the day after Thanksgiving. This was our choice this year. Great decision!

This was our second visit in the last year and ,once again, it was amazing. Our guide, Terry, did an excellent job and we learned things we didn't learn before. We saw a large number of alligators, birds, pigs and cattle. My favorite bird, the Roseate Spoonbill, decided to make an appearance. The attention to covid rules was great and we felt safe. All staff wore masks. We ended our visit with a trip to the Gator Shack! Awesome food, plentiful, reasonably priced and good. Our waitress, Darlene, was great. What a sense if humor! You can't go wrong with a stop at Babcock Ranch.

With the virus still very active our family was looking only for things to do outside. We found the Eco Tour online. Nice reviews so we booked a trip and found this to be an amazing educational, relaxing, informative, and fun trip. Our guide (Ronda) has worked their 4 years and is very passionate about the Babcock Ranch. She told of the history, land, animals, and she knew the ins and outs of the land. It is excellent open air former bus with no windows, stopped for about 5-10 minutes to stretch legs and walked on boardwalk which was great. All ages would love this adventure. Restrooms located right near bus loading and unloading. They have a restaurant, a herb/plant mini building, gift shop and museum. The only issue I found was if you were in a wheelchair not sure how they would handle that. I loved it and highly recommend!
