We were looking forward to this stop…however we were soon disappointed. This could be so much more. The village is set up with several “huts” however only 3 or 4 had anyone in the huts demonstrating the Native American lifestyle. This left about 8 empty huts, the ones that had craftsman working were interesting to see however only of a few of the craftsman tried to engage in a conversation with us. The others were talking to each other and ignored the people walking around. The museum was a nice feature and gave some history with some nice old pictures of the lifestyle. The alligator show was short but nice and it appeared that the alligators were well cared for.
The Glades Eats Restaurant is not located in the village however several people have listed their review in this section so I will as well. I will make it very short…DON’T STOP HERE. Overpriced, not very clean, bad food quality however good service. By the way they take the liberty to add a tip. Keep driving get a candy bar until you get to a good restaurant.

We just happened to stop at the Miccosukee Indian Village and decided to go on an air boat tour. The gift shop has beautiful jewelry, but the best part was our air boat tour with, who was great, informative, and friendly.
Lots to see and a very reasonable price. I like supporting the people native to this land rather than bigger, less personal operations.
We highly recommend it.

SCAM. There are only expensive private tours!

We arrived at 10 a.m. and were told that due to $300 private tours the first normal tour ($20 per person) would be at 12:00. We came back at 11:45 and wete told we had to take a private tour as “more money for us” - for the Indians that is. “Maybe a normal tour at 1:30 p.m. but only if no private tours. Private tours is more money”.

In summary: these are money wolves that break promises for every dollar more they can make. AVOID at all cost and go to Tiger boat tours 1 mile East / they are great.

This was part of our everglades tour with air boat ride that was across the highway which was convenient. Enjoyed the gator wrestling demonstration by a very strong lady and the museum. Found some hand crafted treasures in the large gift shop. I would recommend this stop for anyone interested in First Nations history. Before this trip I had never heard about the Miccosukee and how they never surrendered and how they made a life in a very difficult environment. Did I mention everyone got to hold a baby alligator?

Do Not exceed speed limit. Not even 1 mph over. 35 means 35. 40 means 40 not 41. Stop means stop 100% . Not keep rolling slow thru sign. Last ticket I received was for 4 mph over. 37 years ago. I learned to read . Costly if you can't understand signage on road.

Good couple of hours spent here. It was off season, so not very busy. Enjoyed our time spent there. The alligator show was very good, don't try this at home. Just across the road is their airboat ride. I loved it. It was enjoyable, fun & exciting. The price was good also. A fun time.

The Miccosukee and Seminole Indian Reservations were very well exhibited through their museums. Their history and cultures were very interesting as well as the recreations of living conditions and exhibits such as the Alligator wrestling. You must try the Alligator meat in the local restaurant! Take the airboat rides and the tram rides...... they each have different slants on the Everglades so that you can enjoy the trails, and better understand the plants and aimals that co-exist. The Everglades was so much more than I had expected!

The Fruit, nut and tree orchard, as well as the rock castle were the hightlight for our visit to the Homestread/Miami area.

We stumbled across the Miccosukee Air Boats after driving past the array of tourist filled Air Boat options on the highway from Miami.

After a 10 minute or so ride across the glade grasses we arrived at a small island area, where a few gators were able to be seen up close, and a few souvenirs were available for your perusal and purchase (I should note that we were never asked or felt pressured to make a purchase or give a tip).

After 10 minutes or so there, we had a 15 minute ride back, via an old island camp once inhabited by the local Miccosukee doctor.

All in all, it was fantastic. And for $10 each, I'm sure we scored much better value than the other well advertised options we'd passed along the way.

The tour consisted of a bus transfer (1hour) to the shop (1 hour tour with crafts and show), a boat ride (5 minutes) to the Indian village (30min) another 5 minute ride back. Cost $60.
Impression: disappointment all over.

First stop at the shop, that was overpriced, the explanations of the crafts were given by people that were clearly bored by their job not to talk about the alligator show that was performed as a routine task without any fun nor respect for animals. No wonder the shop and village were empty.

Then came the boat ride, that lasted 5 minutes (at the most!) to the Indian village, totally fake and surrounded by a pond with 2 alligators trapped in there. To top it off, the driver of the boat managed to get us all soaked on the way back and blaming it on the weather. If I say soaked we all were soaked onto the bone, including cameras watches mobiles etc.

All in all, I certainly don't recommend this excursion!

Off season, was very little to see! Paid to go and see a guy sit on a gator, and walk through an overpriced gift shop. The Airboat ride for $10.00 was good however. The casino rated a -10! Only bingo and video poker type games, no slots, no free drinks, not much of anything.
Unless you want to ride an airboat, not worth the drive.
