We rented bicycles to see the 15 mile loop. The trail is paved and flat, so nearly anyone can do this ride. We saw over 107 alligators lying around the trail! There were many more, but I was tired of counting after 107. Please use...More

So glad we chose the tram ride here, two hour tour with a seasoned guide to explain the dynamics of the Everglades. We saw lots of gators and other wildlife and learned so much about the area.

If you want to see alligators up close, this is a must. They are everywhere along this 15 mile trail. You can hike, bike or take the tram. We rented bikes. The 15 mile loop with a stop at the observation tower took us 2.5...More

Visited with friends. Would definitely recommend the 2 hour tram ride. Our tram guide was very knowledgeable about the area - it's formation and it's animal inhabitants. The information given was not something you can obtain on a bike or hike. The day was cool...More

This was a great trip. The bike rentals are spendy @ $9 per hour, per bike. We had a good ride doing the loop, out to the tower and back. We began counting alligators and saw over 50. There are a couple gift shops, operated...More

It's not the cheapest day trip ($25 per car admission, and $25 per adult for the tram tour), but it's certainly worthwhile. The area is well maintained, with an informative visitor centre and well-marked paths (the small ones actually cutting through the Glades unfortunately closed...More

We were the first to arrive in the morning, and being on the walking path all alone with alligators lying just next to the path, was actually a bit scary. But above all, very cool!!

No. The alligators were very subdued and no one seemed frightened. I took the tram ride and the guide reported there had only been one incident in the history of the park where an alligator was violent with a visitor and... More
