Escape to the wilderness of the Florida Everglades on this guided, half-day adventure from Miami. This exciting nature tour includes a narrated airboat ride through the unique ecosystem of the Florida Everglades. Enjoy the scenery and look for Florida’s abundant wildlife, like alligators, crocodiles, exotic snakes and more. After the airboat ride, walk a jungle trail and enjoy an alligator exhibit at Everglades Alligator Farm.
After a morning hotel pickup in the Miami area, it’s off to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth—the Florida Everglades, a 1.5-million-acre wetlands preserve on the southern tip of Florida—for an exciting airboat adventure and nature tour.
On this guided excursion through the Everglades, skim along the grassy water while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s subtropical ecosystem from the experienced captain. Look for a variety of wildlife, like alligators, fish, turtles and wading birds in their natural habitat—an exciting and unspoiled wilderness. It’s wet, it’s wild and it’s loads of fun.
Then head to the Everglades Alligator Farm. Walk along a jungle trail to see the alligators, crocodiles, caimans and other wildlife. Check out a great exhibit of local and exotic snakes. And take in an alligator education seminar as experts describe all aspects of these creatures, the largest reptiles in North America. See the primitive capturing techniques once used by Native American Indians. This tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Miami.

We’ve hand an amazing time! Everything was organised, we were picked up in Miami on time. When we came to Everglades we first went on airboat and then saw an alligator show and could hold baby gator for $3 which was super cute! Then they took us back to Miami. Would definitely recommend!
We were emailed the pick up time the night before and the coach arrived on time. Enjoyed the trip and saw loads of alligators and egrets. Airboat guide was amusing and informative. Our driver, Juan, gave a commentary in English and Spanish, but a lot of it was about roads and it was difficult to make some of the English version out as he spoke quickly with a strong accent. Overall a good trip and value for money.
Alltough advertised a short tour, the pace at we were rushed through the everglades was high. They absolutely made sure you had ample to spend in the cafeteria. On top of that I saw more alligators during my tour of kennedy space center.
We were left waiting outside our hotel for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I emailed viator to cancel the booking and receive our Money back but got no reply from them. The bus showed up, the bus driver was as cool as a breeze and didn't seem aware he was supposed to pick us up over an hour ago. The journey was spent doing pick ups and drop offs in Miami. The actual air boat ride was good, therefore I gave 2 stars. Don't book with viator if you want to see the everglades. We spent our last day in Miami on a bus doing drop off for a 45 minute air boat ride. Book with a more reliable company.
I don't recommend this tour because of transportation with Gray Line. The customer service was terrible. They didn't pick up from my hotel in Miami Beach. Both agents on the phone were rude and rarely answer the phone. They don't respond to voicemail messages or to emails. It was a hassle just to get the pick-up information.
Thanks so much for your review. We have been working on improving the routes and have made many changes to shorten the pickup delays and at the same time offer solutions to the people who do not have transportation to a meeting point.
All customer reviews helps us to grow and improve our customer satisfaction.
Have a wonderful 2020!
This experience would have been entertaining for a first timer but having already visited Wild Florida it was somewhat disappointing. The boat was good but too short. The alligator talk was informative but brief. Saw several alligators in the wild at the other park (Wild Florida) on the boat ride but none on this one. At the other park there was other wildlife apart from the alligators so it was more entertaining for adults and especially children. Apart from the air boat ride there was only a small trail to look at some alligators so I did not find this adventure value for money.
Dear Jimmy, Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Unfortunately we are unable to manage the wildlife at the park, animals are on their natural habitat and that is what makes this tour one of the best sellers. Sometimes it can happen that they hide away maybe due to weather or other reasons beyond our control.
Great trip at everglades, shame about bus journey!

The venue, Everglades airboat trip, the airboat guide, and even the alligator "show" was very good!!! Definitely recommend!! However, the bus collection journey was so awful that we got a taxi back instead. Absolutely freezing on the bus and took SO LONG with all the pick ups and stops.
