Fantastic family adventure for ages ranging from 11 to 73. Capt. John was informative about the Everglades, but also didn't bore us with chatter. Some of the younger members of the family thought it was going to be boring, but they loved every minute of it. Well worth the money.

Fabulous tour! Deborah, our guide, was awesome. So knowledgeable about the everglades, environment, living species. She was so enthusiastic and clearly loves what she is doing. Good sense of humor too! On the private boat you get to go in areas where the bigger boats can't go, which was really cool. Loved this experience and would highly recommend!

What a fantastic experience! Our tour guide/boat operator had considerable professional background of the area, Everglades and alligators. He took us deep into the everglades where we saw a total of 14 alligators and many species of local birds. Also saw a "squatter" home that is built in total isolation and is occupied. Afterwards we visited the small zoo and saw close-up Burmese Pythons, Florida Panthers, turtles, alligators and more. Very well done and worth the time and money.

We had an excellent airboat ride with Captain Debbie. Three alligators made appearances. The everglades have their own kind of beauty. Seeing the large cats was great. We really recommend this as an wonderful,unique and fun way to experience South Florida!

Our personal airboat tour was OUTSTANDING! This Viator adventure was the only one I could find which gave us a full hour on the water, and time 'rushed' by!

We saw many alligators and birds of prey, the homes on the water were fascinating also.

Would do this trip again in a heartbeat!

Great guide (Captain Disco was our guide). He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. He knew right where to go to spot a new born alligator basking in the sun, as well as talk about the various birds, fish, and plants in the area. My kids and I had a great time!

Our group of four really enjoyed this facility and our private airboat tour. The exhibits were well kept and presented, the gift shop was very nice, and our airboat ride was excellent. Our guide truly appreciated the Everglades and was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot and enjoyed it!

In the private tour, our airboat was able to fit in small channels that the larger group boat could not go. We saw about 10 adult alligators and then a mother with about 10 babies. The babies swam up to our boat to explore, but the mother hid cautiously watching everything. Worth the extra money for a private tour.

Truly wonderful afternoon! Capt. Charles found lots of alligators to see and gave a great commentary of the Everglades. The wildlife park was fun, especially holding the baby alligator and feeding the animals. Would recommend this to any animal lovers.
