5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

This is an encounter that's been on our bucket list for years and it was well worth the wait. The Airboat Adventure was great. We had a guide who was extremely knowledgeable and who was able to maneuver the airboat very close to the alligators so we were able to get good pictures. It was a very clear and sunny day so we did see a very large number of alligators.

After the airboat adventure, we ventured through the animal/reptile exhibits which was interesting and informative.

Great value for the price of the excursion but we've come to expect that from Viator. We've utilized their services in numerous countries.

We were in Fort Lauderdale for one day prior to boarding a cruise ship, and I failed to plan ahead and book plans for that day. Fortunately we were able to get on this tour with only a couple of hours notice. Since we are from Washington state we thought it would be interesting to see alligators in the wild and see some of the swamp area while in Florida. This tour was excellent, no complaints. The guide was interesting and we got to hold a baby alligator at the end. Although if I ever come back I would prefer to take a longer and more in depth tour this one was still perfect. Thanks for accomodating us last minute!
