    Great experience

    My husband and I enjoyed our experience. The shuttle picked us up from our airbnb. Al was a great tour guide very nice and friendly and provided a lot of information. We saw about 5 gators in the Everglades and a few birds. The airboat guide was also very good about making sure everyone got to see the animals that we came across. The price was very good which included the pick up and drop off to our airbnb, the hour airboat tour, a picture with a baby Gator and an alligator show with Paul from Gatorboys! We even purchased drinks and souvenirs. Definitely recommend

    I enjoyed seeing the birds and the baby alligators in their natural habitat. Our driver, Joshua, was amazing and very helpful with tips and advice about our excursion. He was always readily available.

    Everglades are a must see in Florida, summer probably a bit hot for seeing much wildlife though we only saw 2 alligators as opposed to 27 in Apopka.

    Alligators in the Wild

    We took this tour the morning after getting off our ship in Ft. Lauderdale. Our driver went over some basic facts about alligators (and how they are different from crocodiles) and showed us some videos from his iPad of alligators being captured. We were lucky enough to see 3 alligators on our boat ride along with birds, dragonflies, and many types of flora. The alligator show after the boat ride was great and our driver told us where to sit so that we could get our pictures with the baby alligator quickly. Awesome tour!

    Very interesting and entertaining as you ride through the alligators home. The airboat was fun and all loved it when it went fast. Pictures afterward were a surprise and excellent quality, and the show was funny and educational to all. Grandkids are still talking about it!

    We HIGHLY recommend this tour!!! It was our first time at the Everglades & boy this tour did NOT disappoint. Not only did we highly enjoy the airboat ride (saw several alligators too!), the show at the end AND holding a baby alligator (we definitely got our money’s worth) but the owner of this tour was amazing. He was so sweet and so accommodating. He helped us with everything the second we got there! Made sure we got there on good time! Loved everything about this!!!

    Alligator Al picked us up from a near by hotel. The during the ride our tour guide gave us some fun facts and jokes. He also made sure we knew what to expect during our visit. Our airboat operator was awesome. I hate that I forgot his name but he did a great tour. Seen plenty Of alligators while trailing through The Everglades. The alligators came out that day. We were able to see several alligators in plain sight. Alligator show was good too. Great experience.

    This experience was better than we ever expected! We purchased the rice td and transportation package and it was so worth it! Joshua gave us the ultimate VIP treatment from the minute he picked us up at our hotel. During the ride he let the kids watch videos on gators and gave a ton of information! The Everglades were beautiful and we saw 4 gators along our ride. The food and drinks prices are kept on the lower end which was great for large families. Our guide Joshua made sure we knew where to be, what to see and just made the experience above all our expectations! So glad we visited and did the Florida Everglades airboat!

    False advertising but met awesome tour guides

    Amazing tour guides, just okay experience. Felt the Viator description was WAY off and actually included lies. I am heartbroken that my entire vacation was centered around going to the Everglades National Park and despite the website saying that’s where they go, that’s not where they drove us! I am on a life long journey to go to each park and they dropped us off at holiday park where we didn’t go deep enough to find alligators. So beyond pissed but it wasn’t Dylan or Al’s faults

    Before you put any comments better learn more about. Everglades is huge river or Swamp starting from Okeechobee lake and going all way down to Atlantic Ocean south. All area is connecting together including National Park.

    Our driver drove like a maniac and was in a sour mood. The boat ride only took us int o the very edge of the Everglades.

    We loved our experience at the Everglades Holiday resort. Excellent communication from our driver. We ended up driving ourselves and were glad we did so we could stay a little longer. Plan for heat, bring lots of water. The gator show is a fun addition. Loved getting a picture with a baby croc also. Wished the boat ride were a little more diverse and more parts were spent going fast, but still very fun. Only saw one crocodile in the wild-but lots of other fun wildlife around.

    We enjoyed seeing a small portion of the everglades while riding on the airboat. We saw a couple alligators and several types of birds. The van ride to the park is considered part of the 4 hour tour.
