Our tour guide Kyle was hilarious and very knowledgable. Me and my father learned a lot and it was one of my favourite experiences in Florida. Please go, you won't be sorry!!

Rode the Swamp Buggy through the dry swampland forest. The driver was knowledgeable and did point out many interesting facts about the plant life and the animals. It is good if you want to become more informed about "natural" Florida. Airboat Ride through the swamp was fun and the guide stopped a few time to point out facts about the... More

Four of us went to Billy Swamp Safari on Saturday February 11th 2017. What a wonderful place to relax. Ride an air-boat, swamp buggy and just walked around and saw what the everglades are all about. The jokes were bad, but still made us laugh. Nothing was fast paced or stressful. The employees were awesome. Kyle was our swamp buggy... More

If you get yourself in the right frame of mind and expect the sillyness and bad jokes on the tours, this is a really fun way to spend a day to two in the Evergaldes. We've overnighted a couple of times in the (rustic but comfy)chikee huts and it is a blast. Be sure to request the ones with a... More

We had a great time here. Something for every member of the family. Weather was not great the day we were there and we still enjoyed our visit.

My husband and I visited last winter. It was a bit of a ride for us and in the end we felt it was worth it. The airboat ride was short and I don't know that I would take it again. The safari ride was the best. We enjoyed the animals - the ones in cages and on the safari... More

We visited twice March 2016. We plan on visiting again this March too. We had the most wonderful and educational time. The guides went way beyond what we expected. The animals and wildlife were better than going to Disney world.

On the day that we went, it was hot. We went in the afternoon. The guide that took us on the water told us the gators are usually out early before it gets too hot. So we didn't see any. Overall, it was still a good experience.

Went for the air boat ride. Family enjoyed all the activities. The swamp buggy ride and the air boat was well worth the trip.
