We enjoyed this tram tour! Frank was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. It was fun to listen to him as you could tell he really enjoys his job and loves the Everglades. We really felt we learned a lot about the biodiversity of the Everglades, the plant life as well as the animals. Isis was our driver and... More

We decided to do this tour as a different way to see more of the Everglades. The guide was interesting and the driver was a great spotter, stopping each time for all to get a look or photo. We had the right amount of time at the Tower and then more information and spotting animals on the way back. A... More

The tram tours were very educational and everyone learned something new. We had 2 small children who loves to look at all the alligators and crocodiles along the road. I highly recommend this place!

Shark Valley is part of the Everglades National Park. It is a beautiful park and a must see for visitors of Miami. It is a geological depression at the head of the Shark River Slough in far western Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. It has a tram tour which will take you around the park with a narrator who will... More

My husband and I took the Shark Valley Tram Tour in 2011 and enjoyed it immensely. We had a very informative guide and went late in the day so that there we lots of animal and bird sightings. I was traveling that way with my son last week and decided to do the tram ride with him but it was... More

Informative guide and observant driver combined to make this a very interesting experience. Alligators were not uncommon despite it being early afternoon in the heat of the day, and other flora and fauna were identified by the crew. Saw some brave souls cycling and even walking the trail, but the trolley is much better and easier.

Takes 2 hours, including stop at observation tower. Saw a variety of birds, and several alligators, including two on road. Informative guide. Worth booking ahead. Also need to pay $25 park fee. Take some water on ride as it is hot!

The Everglades are a wondrous place and this tram tour gives you a glimpse, often a fleeting glimpse, of the area. We saw about 6 types of birds mostly ones we had seen along the road.... mostly quick peaks from a distance. Many interesting things were visible to the 2 people on the side of the trams of the sighting... More

Walking the 15 mile round trip path to the observation tour deep into Shark Valley is possible and we have done it, but the tram ride lets you have a relaxing ride and really concentrate on the wildlife hidden away in the vegetation. Contrary to some of the previous visitors, we experienced a very knowledgeable guide who admitted that he... More
