We actually had called around and asked a competitor who we can contact for a short tour that we can drive over to. They said to use the Everglades Safari Tour. We really had a good time. The prices were decent for an hour and half tour, short show and walking the park. Tips are appreciated. We drove to the... More

Actually just stopped there to try out alligator meat. We skipped the attractions, as we already had had our tour in the swamp at another place. I ordered the Gator Salad, which basically was a basic salad with croutons and fried alligator meat. Tasted good in my opinion, so I was happy at least!

Just left a cruise on Miami and took the air boat tour option to kill time before flight . Staff was very knowledgeable about the Everglades . That combined with air boat made it exciting. 50 for a couple . They have a restaurant on site . About 30 min from MIA

We enjoyed the Everglades Safari Park. The boat tour was interesting with lots of wildlife to see including GATORS!!! The boat was very noisy but they provided ear plugs. After the boat ride the staff did a short but informative discussion and demonstration with alligators and a snake. At the end they allowed you to hold a baby gator for... More

A group of 7 was easily accommodated. Airboat ride was worth the $25 admission. It's loud but they offer ear plugs. Our guide stopped the boat often and spoke about the alligators, birds and environment. There was a brief alligator show after that was pretty basic but probably fun for younger kids.

Very nice experience both the boat trip and the "show". I think that they could just consider increasing a little bit the time of the boat tour other than this itwas really interesting

We bought an organized bus tour of the Everglades GetYourGuide from Miami Beach. The bus journey was fine, although the drivers of each bus had a confusion about who to take from where. On the way back everything has worked. Organization in the national park works perfectly. Park visits per year more than one million visitors. Everglades are very interesting... More
