Being from the north, Massachusetts, was interested to see all the Alligators, but was surprised by the amount of turtles there. At first was disappointed that we weren't allowed to walk around on our own, but was glad that there was a guide to explain the difference in the alligators and turtles. We never would have seen the really big... More

This place maybe a scam I tried calling both their local number and their 800 number and neither one is operable. Maybe they have gone out of business. At any rate I'm not going to waste any time trying to book a tour since that function on their website is inoperable as well. Sounds more and more like maybe the... More

The alligator farm isn't that far from our home. But being that I am from south Louisiana and have seen hundreds of alligators, it wasn't high on my list of places to visit. However, my kids loved it, especially my boys! It was very informative and I really liked that the kids were able to hold the baby alligators.

We will definitely come back The tour guide was great.at the time of our visit, he had only been working there for 5 days. He did a great job answering questions and being patient with us while getting the gators attention. I learned a lot and really enjoyed the walk around to the different ponds.

Haven't been in a long time and there were only a few people on the tour so we had a great cool morning to visit. Got to look up close (a little to close) at all the gators and so much more!! Very quaint and down home but there was a whole group of school children visiting and they loved... More

I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't this. It was just ok. It did smell, as stated in other reviews, but I guess that's to be expected. I did get to hold a small alligator, which was the highlight for me. I felt terrible for the poor fox stuck in that small cement cage. The groups were too... More
