Our guide Carmen was witty and engaging while describing the animal and plant life of the Everglades, the importance of the restoration of this area, and the hundreds of bird and other animal species who call the Everglades home. Who knew that alligators and crocodiles are responsible for the creation and maintenance of the Everglades, or that there are over... More

For a 2 hour tour, this was well worth it. We got to see a bunch of wildlife and our tour guide was very helpful in pointing out the animals and very knowledgeable in what they were and their history. It was a very informative trip and I would do it again. A few cons: For someone into photography, it... More

The tram gets up close to all of the amazing wildlife in the Everglades, Alligators, Baby Alligators and hundreds of birds. The Ranger provides an excellent educational commentary throughout the tour. Very good value for money.

We took the sunset tram trip (4-6 pm). The guide was great and knew everything about the different birds and gators and the area itself. We saw hundreds of bird, a lot alligators and even babies. We even saw a gator eating a snake :-) Great trip. I can highly recommend the trip.

We went with friends who were a bit skeptical about the time and money to be expended, but we all agreed it was well worth the time. Our guide, Carmen, was great, very pleasant with jokes and much information on the ecosystem of the Everglades. We saw more alligators than we could count, and birds that we began to recognize...

I had always wanted to see the Everglades. It is one thing to drive the Tamiami Trail through it but the narrated tour was fantastic. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He spoke very clearly so us with less than good hearing had not trouble hearing and understanding. He pointed out so many species of birds and other inhabitants... More

I am going to open with, the park is great, many birds and gators, the park ranger on the tour was for the most part excellent We love birds and animals. NOW on to the tram itself and the company who operates the tour (this is not the national park service). I asked the driver which side was best view,... More

The tram tour is a great way to learn about the Everglades ecosystem and its inhabitants. On our tour, we saw alligators (babies too!), anhingas, ibis, herons, and other wading birds that the ranger was able to identify for us. At the observation tower at the midway point, we saw at least 10 alligators hanging out in a group. Some... More

Saw lots of wildlife: alligators, birds of many kinds. Be sure to bring your own water. The guide shared a lot of information about the wildlife and told interesting stories.

very popular; hard to get on site parking; often the lot is closed at the main road(Tamiami Trail)...people can park on the main road and walk in; or bike in....no matter how you get in, do plan on spending the $ to take the tram ride! The docent on board is excellent- you learn so much that you could never... More
