Longer ride
Ride seemed to be extremely fast. We were fortunate enough to see an alligator and he continued to follow us as we floated around him but we didn’t go far out in the Everglades. They say ride was 30 mins very fast 30 mins

Disappointing and sad
The boat ride was nice but very short. We saw three aligators.
The sordid moment came after, when visiting a sleazy prison for animals. A baby crocodile with mouth taped was handled by everyone as if it was an object. An iguana was desperately clinging to the bar in an attempt to reach the grass. Alligators are poked when asleep to make them react, so that people can make selfies with them. I’ve travelled a lot but even in the poorest countries I’ve never seen such small cages or enclosures. After riding through the wild nature, it is such a sad experience. Let’s leave animais alone and boycott those prisons.

Bad commentary and tour was cut short
Mar. 2021 • Couples
Currently sitting on the bus waiting to leave to head back because it’s raining and the driver had us all go back to the bus. We didn’t get to do the alligator show or a pic with an alligator. Basically we drove an hour and a half to get drenched and buy a poncho that didn’t keep anyone dry. We are also sitting here till we hit 4:30 because of “timing” reasons.

The tour guide barely gave any facts about Florida other than naming cities

Don’t waste your money or if you do. Please check the weather as a squall will get you nothing but a wet ride home ....eventually

Everglades tour
We had a great tour with a very nice driver. The guy at the Everglades found 2 alligators and told a lot about them.
They did a very good job in covid time. Not many people on the bus (20) and we had our own boat 👍

Waste of Time
What a joke. 1 hour bus ride to the park where we were told we’d be in the air boat for 45 minutes except it was more like 10 minutes. He found 1 gator spun around a few times and then docked again. We were also told there’s food trucks and we’d have time to eat. The food trucks were closed and the gift shop had chips and candy.

Took 5 hours out of our last day riding on a bus. Big disappointment.

Our airboat driver didn’t make an effort to find any gators in the swap. So disappointed. At least, make an effort to find ONE...

Waste of money and time
Mar. 2020
This company is the actual worst. They drain money out of you in anyway possible.

The tour was 2 hours late. When I checked in at their south beach office, the employee (named Roberto) was rude and complained that my party of 9 people should've made a reservation together instead of each separately. I explained to him we all had traveled separately and met in Miami, so it did not make sense to do that. It seemed he was just mad that he had to put in work to look up people individually.

Once he checked us in, he said we have to pay another $3 "boarding fee." I showed him my confirmation email that already said that I have paid in exact words a "boarding fee." He said call my manager if you have a problem. I went ahead and paid the $3 each for our party to get ourselves going on the tour. I called the manager named Scott. He was not helpful, first said the boarding fee was a "7% fee of my ticket" when I did the math that did not add up, sounded like he just made that up so I would not ask any more questions. He seemed to not understand that I paid twice for this so called "boarding fee". Then said that the $3 was fee for the actual everglades park. I felt like he was just making things up to justify these random fees that he's charging people to make money.

The problems didn't end there. We finally got to the actual Everglades (2 hours late). We did a walk around their Zoo area where you can see different animals. There was no "Crocodile Show" as described on the website for this company. We did get to hold a baby crocodile, I would say that was the only cool part about this trip. We got on the Air boat and literally saw one crocodile, the tour guide shared an interesting story about it. Then for about 10 min straight we cruised around the water area and the tour was over. It was literally less than 20 min on the air boat. It seemed since we were so behind on time for getting there we just got a shortened version of the experience. Not worth the money at all. I wasted most of our day waiting for the bus to take us there, topped off with a sub par tour.

I would not recommend booking with this company for any activities. I also did a Boat Tour with this same company, also a terrible experience. Save your money and spend it on a tour that has helpful and friendly staff.

Not worth the money.
Mar. 2020 • Family
This was an activity of half your day just to see only one crocodile. Not worth your time or money. Everyone in the boat thought he was joking when he was saying thank you for coming but he was serious as he started backing up his boat.

Everglades tour
Feb. 2020 • Family
Logistics worked fine. Expect extra fees of 5-6 dollars. Resort fee and expected tips to driver. Driver was excellent with funny stories on the way. The Everglades park is a joke. Not much to see. Boat was really fun but we saw only one alligator. All together worth spending a day here. Book online and save money.
