Review this tour
We took the Miami Everglades Airboat Tour and were NOT disappointed. We were picked up directly from the hotel - our driver Jorge's was AMAZING. He was very kind and patient with all guests on the tour. It is offered in many different languages and was very informative. Rather than go back to our hotel after the tour, Jorge's let us off at another stop so we could spend the afternoon shopping. Highly recommend. No complaints whatsoever.

Everglades airboat ride and Gator Boys show absolutely great! Professional airboat captain Chris made our tour so interesting and fun. We saw alligators in the wild, great blue herons and other strange and wonderful birds and beasts. I wish I could have stayed on the airboat all day and listened to his commentary. He even caught a fish with a bit of bread! Then we were privileged to watch and listen to the alligator presentation by the "gator boy" who informed us and showed us his great passion for the alligators. I was glad he was in the pit and not me. But, I will never forget it. Great tour! Great unforgettable time. Don't miss it!

This was a last minute plan to visit the Everglades and their booking system was quick and simple to navigate on my mobile. We were picked up on time the next morning (very convenient pick up near our hotel) and did the airboat tour of the Everglades. It was fantastic! We got lucky and spotted a lot of wildlife

We booked an Everglades tour with another company through our cruise line to kill time between our ship's arrival back in Miami and our flight home. When it was cancelled at the last minute due to "low participation," my wife hopped online and just before we lost cell signal from land, she booked the Miami Tour Company's tour to the Everglades Holiday Park. SO glad we did! Lewis was a terrific driver and Gus was easily one of the best tour guides we've had. Pick up and drop off were a breeze. We were able to store our luggage under the bus so it went with us. And the Everglades Holiday Park was an awesome experience! All for a very reasonable price. Thank you, Miami Tour Company, for making our last day in Miami such a memorable one!

Our group selected Miami Tour company to provide us with entertainment and adventure for the day. The pick up time was prompt, the guided tour on the bus and on foot was great, the places we visited were fun, and despite the heat we were able to enjoy the Everglades airboat ride and alligator show. The booking of our reservation was seamless and the staff were professional, prompt, and pleasant. This, after we initially chose Viator, who did not respond promptly and said that they responded (to me) when they actually didn't. When I finally asked for a group rate, it took them a long time to respond back. By the time Viator responded, we had already booked with Miami Tour. We also made 1 change to our tour regarding pick up place, and this was accommodated with no problem. I highly recommend Miami Tour company for your Miami adventure.

When they picked us up it was easy except they said meet at Bubba Gump but you actually need to catch the bus in the parking lot. When we got to the tour site they let us go to the restrooms and gave us bug spray and sunscreen and earplugs for the airboat. The airboat was fairly loud but would not hurt your ears. Our tour guide gave us great tips on the wildlife and said several jokes. He pointed out the wildlife so we could see it. Our tour was great and when we got back to the main building we walked through a small museum and then had a wildlife show. After, the guide let us hold a baby gator! After that you had time to buy lunch and/or snacks. Overall I would definitely do it again.

WE took the Everglades Tour. We waited at the assigned corner for about 25 minutes. We tried to arrive before time and ended up being picked up 20 minutes late. The tour went as planned. The driver was kind and informative. We were directed to the Everglades Safari. We took the airboat. Fifteen years ago we saw many alligators and other wildlife. This time all alligators we saw were in captivity, none in the wild. It seems that part of the Everglades is crowded with airboats (we could hear them) and probably the animals are now avoiding the area. That's the bad part of excessive tourism. The driver made a great thing about seeing a turtle and the occasional bird.

After spending a lot of time reading reviews about the different tour companies in Miami, me & a friend booked onto the Everglades Adventure tour with the Miami Tour Company. Although we were a little bit late getting picked up from our chosen pick-up location (mainly due to the South Beach traffic), the tour was absolutely fantastic & I have no complaints whatsoever. The morning started with a 40 minute bus ride to the Everglades with our hilarious driver who drove very safely, told us various information, stories & jokes during the ride & even pointed out a couple of alligators along the way. We also listened to a pre-recorded narration with information about the Everglades & Miami in general, which I found really interesting as it helped to set the scene. Upon arrival at the Everglades Safari Park, our driver handed each of us a sticker pass for the airboat tour, offered to secure any of our belongings on the bus & let us know what time to meet for the drive back to Miami. We then had our 30 minute airboat tour around the Everglades (complete with earplugs!), where we saw two baby alligators & a number of full-sized adult alligators, as well as various birds. This was followed by a short wildlife show, where we watched a member of staff feed & interact with a number of adult alligators, hold a baby alligator & hold a snake. We were also told about the differences between alligators & crocodiles & then given the opportunity to queue for a photo holding the baby alligator for $3. After the show, we had a bit of free time to explore the rest of the park & visit the gift shop & snack cafe before boarding our bus back to Miami. Our driver had put out a bottle of cold water for each of us, which I thought was a nice touch. He was also more than happy to oblige when we asked to be dropped off at a different location to our pick-up. Overall an excellent tour & a highly recommended company!
