Very educational but we’ve seen only 3 crocodiles, the Savana is huge and phenomenal there’s option to add some spice to the tour
Misinformation in description of the tour
Rohan_H, Sep 2023
Bus Ride takes 45 min each way. Boat ride was 40 min max. Didn't see any alligators. Just a couple of birds
Overall, I was not satisfied.
Veronica_D, Sep 2023
We got picked up in the bus, 45 minutes in we were informed that the trip was cancelled due weather relations despite the trip supposed to be for rain or shine. When asking about a refund we were instructed to contact Viator. When contacting Viator, the lady told me she did not see in her end that Viator canceled the trip. I asked for a refund since the trip was supposed to be at 1:30, then we had a flight to catch at 8:30, so therefore we could not reschedule another trip. Still awaiting to here back about a refund.

We had so much fun AT the everglades. We saw 1 gator in the wild, but many in their exhibit. I wish the tour office had chairs as we waited for the bus to pick us up to head out to the everglades.
The ride was fun and the...

The ride was fun and the captain was great but we saw only a couple of birds... I guess it wasnt the best time to visit
Not a must
Nimrod_G, Sep 2023
Too long on the bus which made additional unplanned stops. The boat captain was good. The gator show guy was good as well.
They should’ve paid me for this horrible visit.
binyomin_k, Sep 2023
This trip was horrible and a waste of time and money. We did not see any alligators at all! The “show” after the boat ride was just a boring 20 minute lecture about alligators. I think that they should’ve paid us for coming for that visit. We will go out of our way to recommend to our friends, not to come on this “trip”.
All of that
Joshua_G, Sep 2023

Exciting trip
Harold_L, Sep 2023
People fun atmosphere had a great time seeing the sites. The way a trip is supposed to go although bus temp was on the warm side
very nice tour, gladly again
Guenther_H, Aug 2023
the airboat safari was amazing, the alligator show was boring and without any highlights - you could only take pictures through the fence, but the nature and wildlife was very appealing
Funny and entertaining
Danann_M, Aug 2023
The gator show presenter was very funny and made the show entertaining. I liked his jokes and knowledge of the alligators.
Recommended activity with great value for money

I read different reviews so I want to make a quick summary for everyone out there who would like to do it. The bus has functioning AC and it is very comfortable. The guide is funny and gives some information about the city along the way. The place where they take you is the Sawgrass Recration Park (not the Everglades National park which is much more distant from Miami Beach). The tour on the airboat is fun. Unfortunately I did not see the gators while another boat of our group saw one. After the airboat tour, there is a person of the park giving a lesson on crocodiles near two of them (massive and old). After that, the same guide let you touch a baby crocodile (in a safe way). At the end of the tour the guide politely asked for a 5 dollars tip. Many gave it to him, others didn’t. Personally I did because I liked his attitude. For 30 dollars I would highly recommend this activity.
It was very Exciting

The airboat ride and how knowledgeable and friendly our Captain was. I will definitely do it again, when I visit Miami in the future.
Brilliant air boat ride
Trevor_H, Aug 2023
Apart from getting court in a storm it was brilliant. Tour guide was funny. Value for the money. Will go again.
Farid_M, Aug 2023
No alligators, we couldn't see any alligators there. This tour is waste of money. I wouldn't recommend
Great experience
Marlen_R, Aug 2023
It was so much fun to experience this. Was our first time. We didn't see alligators but it was a great time!!!
Amazing value for money!
Candice_G, Aug 2023
The tour guide was friendly and pointed out Miami sights and history on the bus journey to the Everglades. Super fun and exhilarating airboat ride - we saw crocodiles and iguanas. Crocodile rescue center was great - funny and informative crocodile show and we got to stroke a baby crocodile! Would 100% recommend
A natural experience!
MariaDaniela_P, Aug 2023
The aiboat ride and the alligator exibit were a unique experience for me and my kids! We felt in touch with wild nature !

Ours was canceled due to a power outage. So they booked us a different tour, that tour was goof, but now I need to get a refund, because we already had that one booked for a different day.
It needs to be mentioned...
Dhawal_V, Aug 2023
It needs to be mentioned that it is just the Sawgrass recreation park and not the main Everglades entry. Also it did not start on time.
