“Great Experience Kids Loved It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

This was a fantastic experience and would recommend it to anyone! I have 8 yr old twins (boy and girl) they both equally enjoyed the boat tour and especially holding Snappy the baby alligator! The tour guide was knowledgable and would give us advanced notice of an upcoming alligator.

Our ride lasted about 45 mins to an hour. We saw at least a dozen or more on the tour...not to mention several on the drive there. This was really the best part of our trip to Florida!

I would recommend it to anyone young or old!

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

My girlfriend and myself took her kids on our way to Miami Beach, couldn't have asked for a better stop on the way. The kids absolutely loved it, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and very well spoken. The tour lasted about an hour with several gators out to soak up some sun. We had the pleasure of seeing a few baby gators as well. The show after the tour was very informational as well. It was a pleasant surprise when the showman had a small gator named Snappy that the kids were able to hold for a couple of minutes, an experience they will never forget. Overall a pleasurable experience for all involved, I would recommend to anyone.

“Been on better tours”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Well, it was fun going through the grasses at top speed. Saw a couple alligators, but it was over very quickly... about 30 minutes. The boat was very crowded and as fate would have it, we were on the RIGHT... the gators were on the LEFT. LOL. The park was OK. We thought this places would be a highlight of our trip, but it wasn't.

“Fantastic private tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

We did our second private tour of the Everglades at Everglades Safari Park. Our tour guide RJ was extremely knowledgeable. A private tour is the way to go. One hour in the Everglades will put you completely at ease. A definite must.
