“Great day”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

This day trip was worth it. We didn't ride out too far into the glades but that may have have been due to scattered showers. The scenery and I formative narration made up for that. The Alligator show was mostly an educational piece which was well worth it.

“Well worth the side-trip! Kids LOVED it and they learned a lot too.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We wanted to surprise the kids with a trip to Everglades Holiday Park, because they LOVE watching Gator Boys. So, while we were in Orlando we spent a day and drove down to Ft. Lauderdale (beware of the $36 in tolls you'll spend in both directions). It was an easy drive and the kids were thrilled. We got there right when it opened, on a Sunday. I recommend getting there early. We bought tickets, easily, got a hefty military discount, and were on the first airboat tour. Let me just tell you, this is the REAL deal. We learned a lot about the Everglades...about alligators (and saw three) and the botany of the area, the history, etc. Our airboat captain was a native and had a clear connection to the place, which made our experience all the more exceptional. The tour was a lengthy hour and we enjoyed each and every moment and tidbit of info. The kids, ages 8 and 10, LOVED it.

Upon returning to the docks, we went to the alligator wrestling show and got a great lesson on the origins of "alligator wrestling", and enjoyed the show. Afterward, for a nominal fee, the kids were able to hold a small alligator and get pictures.

Afterward, we bought momentos (the kids got genuine gator-tooth necklaces...very cool) and enjoyed gator bites and frog legs (the gator bites were especially delicious). We had a picnic lunch overlooking the Everglades and really savored the moment.

“Airboat tour and gator show”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in to see the Gator Boys while on a business trip to the area. Took the airboat tour, saw several wild alligators and some great wildlife in the everglades. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I was a little disappointed that no one from the TV show was there but the gator show was pretty cool. $25 for the tour and show.
