This is a must do. We had an absolute fantastic time. If you are looking for something to do that’s a little different, then this is it. It’s a ride through the jungle with views of everything that nature has to offer here in Florida. Will be back! Thank Yoi.

Took my 7-year old grandkids to Babcock for the tour and they thoroughly enjoyed it. They especially liked the wild pigs and were given the opportunity to throw some corn to them. They also enjoyed being able to touch and have their pictures taken with the little alligator. Their parents enjoyed it as much as we did. After several visits in the past four years, we find that each trip is unique and we highly recommend the tour to anyone who is visiting the area. Our guide, Ken, was exceptionally well informed and gave us all a great and memorable tour. He was especially patient with questions from the little ones and gave them his complete attention when answering their questions. Many thanks to Ken!

90 minute tour and it was really good and very educational. Our guide ( I forgot her name) was very friendly and had such a great sense of humor and love for the area. She knew most of the animals by name and enjoyed feeding them corn. We saw hogs, cattles, different type of birds and alligators. Lots of alligators. Excellent trip for the family of all ages. It is definitely a must see!!!

Everypart of the tour was enjoyable for our group and we are still talking about the fun we had. So worth it and we will be booking another tour soon. Highlighted moments were plenty - learning about the history of the ranch and getting to see gators and boars and cattle and deer and different species of birds and trees. We want to thank the staff, especillay the tour guide for a very nice time!!!

Great Tour. Very interesting and informative. We learned a lot about the Babcock land. We say so many alligators, wild pig, deer, cows, and birds. We drove through the swamp, walked into the swamp via a boardwalk. It was a great 90 minute tour. Highly recommend. Stop by the gator shack afterwards and enjoy some great food!

An excellent trip for the family. All ages will enjoy. We had three generations and it was enjoyed by everyone. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fun. He was a treat to listen to. We had a really good lunch at the Gator Shack following the tour. Don’t follow the GPS, use the guide provided on the website. All the staff were friendly and helpful!

Great guided-tour! We saw lots of different animals. The buggy driver/guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a one year old and five year old. There is a restaurant on site that had good food and service.
