Great Everglades tour
We did a morning Everglades tour and were very happy with it. The pick up at Bayside was on time, the coach was clean and tidy with a very pleasant driver and quite an interesting voice-over on the 40 minute journey. The boat trip was excellent (noisy, but they provide earplugs) with lots of alligators to see, plus birds, turtles. Very informative boat captain. Afterwards the alligator show was an informative demonstration (no dancing alligators!) with a baby alligator brought out at the end for photo purposes. There's a bit of time at the end to walk around and/or go to the cafe (cafe is fairly basic) before the 40 minute drive back to Miami Bayside. Exactly as described!

Birthday Treat
Booked this for my boyfriend and I as a birthday surprise. He really loved it. We were the only people on the mini bus that day so the drive there and back was relatively quick and easy. The drivers were great, very informative and told us lots of hints and things to do in Miami. The place it’s self was pretty cool and the air boat was fun, got to see several alligators, birds an fish and learned about the surrounding. My boyfriend loved being able to drive his own boat around after!

Great Everglades tour
We took a tour of Everglades with Miami Tour Company today. We were picked up from our hotel (north Miami Beach) right on-time. We were the first passengers so the bus made several other stops before heading down to Everglades. Our driver was very nice and professional and experienced. They gave us some good information on the bus about Everglades. We had about 2.5 hours when we got to the park which was perfect amount of time for the airboat and aligator show and some souvenir shopping. Great experience, good service:)

All in all a great day
This Everglades tour was really great from start to finish, we were picked up from our hotel on time, provided with cold water, sunscreen and bug repellent. The boat tour does go for the full hour and during this time we had 8 alligator sightings! We were able to get quite close to them for photos and the captain turned the boat to both sides so everyone got a close up! After the boat tour we then watched the alligator show and had a free photo holding a baby gator. We read other reviews which advised to take lunch/snacks with you, which we did and were glad as the cafe is not cheap.

Angel was an angel
We did the Everglades tour. We were collected from Hotel and greeted by our driver/guide Angel, who friendly and great at giving us extra information on our journey to and from the park. The boat tour was good we had several sightings. The free pic was a nice souvenir. Worth it for trip out of Miami.

We liked all the freebies
We did the everglades tour with Daniel as our guide. He was very kind and knowledgable. He took such good care of everyone. We appreciated the free, cold water, sunscreen and bug spray very much. I belive our air boat captain's name was J. T. His boat was called Big Thunder. He was also very knowledgeable and seemed to have the wild birds trained to come to him. At one point I thought it was going to come into the boat! It was a lot of fun. On the other hand, the alligator show left a lot to be desired. They didn't even dry off the benches from the rain.

Worth the money
The bus picked us up on time, it was air conditioned, they gave us free, ice-cold water, the information was given by a pre-recorded tape with the driver pressing "next" when we got to the appropriate spot on the road (this is great because you can actually understand the person speaking!!!!). The airboat ride was enjoyable, we saw an alligator show and had the possibility of holding a baby alligator. It was insanely hot out, but it was a very enjoyable trip and definitely worth the money. Their pick-up methods were a little odd, but I guess it made sense. Two busses going on two different tours would pick up passengers from different sides of the city, meet in the middle and swap passengers. Good in theory, but you have to wait if one bus is running slow.

My Everglades Experince
If you're from out of town without a car, this is a good tour to experience the Everglades. Some people had luggage which was stored below on the bus. There are earphones for people to listen to the narration on the bus in other languages than English. Best to read the schedule on their website to know what to expect and what to do. The food at the park is expensive and not great. But we did try alligator bites. A small bowl of about 6 pieces was about $10. One can of soda was $2.25. Better to pack a lunch and eat it on the bus. There is time to go to the rest rooms when you get to the park before the airboat ride. But get to the boat as soon as possible and be in the first few groups. Because you go to the alligator show immediately after the boat ride. We were one of the last boats. By then all the seats in the shade for the show were taken. We skipped the show because it was too hot to seat in the sun for 20 mins. There isn't much else to see in the park. The gift shop is unimpressive. The snacks are overpriced. However, the airboat ride is well worth it. The boat is covered so you will not be in the sun. Our captain was funny and informative. We saw alligators and iguanas. This was one of our highlights to our trip to Miami.
