It was well worth the money. Park was nice too. Food was will good. Would do this again for sure.
The boat tour was wonderful! Saw lots of wildlife - alligators, eagles, marsh birds. Guide was very informative. Lots of things to see in the animal park.
The airboat experience, has been told to all our family and friends.
It was the most fun my husband and I had experience this year on vacation, for tour type events.
Thanks for the fun
Great guide-full of interesting info. Package deal including the animal park and lunch was a very good deal. Very enjoyable experience for the $$.
This place/tour was AMAZING!! Alec was an awesome guide!! The garlic bread was the most delicious!
Even though it was cold out that day, we really enjoyed our trip. Can't remember our tour guides name but he was great. We upgraded to a private tour when we arrived and it was easy and perfect!!
We had a wonderful time at wild Florida. The captain was very friendly and informative. The airboat ride was amazing. We spotted a couple of alligators and had the opportunity to hold a baby alligator and a python. Overall we highly recommend this experience.
The boat ride is nice, it's a must do when in Florida. The tour guide was quite disappointing, he wasn't very nice and kind of ignored my family because we were the only foreigners in the boat.
The park is fun, they have a lot of animals.
The lunch was OK, a little expensive for a burger and a drink. You can pay for the boat ride and the park only and you will save a lot of money.
This was certainly much more than just an airboat tour and alligator encounter. Very friendly staff and so much to see and experience. The only negative was no driving instructions from Orlando and when you Goggled we were given instructions to take a certain exit from the Turnpike but had no E Tag and the sign said we would be fined $100. Then had to go an extra 7 miles down and turn back and try and find an alternate road. Very stressful which made us late but luckily the staff rebooked us for a later tour.
Our captain of our "airboat" John, had us doing turns and ducking and weaving through the swamp that were a real thrill!!His knowledge was extensive and informative, and he has such a good eye in pointing out sights.We encountered a smallish alligator just floating along and looking at us in a very lazy way!!! We really liked the animals in the park and apart from holding the alligator for a photo shoot, we met the nicest girls at the entrance to the petting area. Highlight for me was being able to hold their little teacup pig. A great way to spend a day, and the lunch provided was delicious.
The airboat was great fun. It was a very smooth ride and I love how quickly it can turn. We saw an alligator but for me the highlight was seeing bald eagles in the wild.
With us still being on California time we were hungry for lunch at 11:30am. The BBQ chicken was still cooking and not ready, which was a bit disappointing, but we had other menu options instead.
It's a great setup at Wild Florida. Note that it is about an hour from Orlando, which for us was a $60 ride with Uber each way.
The lunch wasn't that great, the animal zoo was OK. The airboat ride was fantastic. The guide on the boat was great. It looks like they're making some updates to the zoo so that may be better next year
Really enjoyed the airboat ride, guide was good and saw Alligators. They are currently doing renovations and it will be even better when completed. Lunch was ok.
It was a really good time . Saw lots of alligators . Would do it again
Our pictures with the Alligator were taken by a very poor camera and they don't allow visitors the their cameras. Also food was not that good. But generally we enjoyed the tour except for these two mentioned points.
This place was good. Owner doing massive renovations and will be worth visiting when finished. Great to see alligators in the wild. Boat driver great at finding them. Don't do lunch - not worth it or at all tasty.
The boat ride itself was a fantastic experience. The area is beautiful with plenty of bird life. We saw a number of Alligators although it is difficult to get close to them before they disappear. The site itself is very well kept, where you can get to see Alligators close up as well as various other animals. What disappointed us was the apparent limited interaction the staff have with the customers when not on the boat. At other attractions we went to in Florida, especially the Marine attractions, we were fed a wealth of information regarding the animals. At this site no additional information is offreed. It would have been good to have a pre or post ride educational briefing on the animals, plant life and park in general. There was a total lack of information in this regard. We also found the lunch to be rather basic. So the boat ride and the site itself were good but we were not impressed with anything else. It could be so much improved by the staff having some enthusiasm to share their knowledge of the Flora, Fauna and area in general with us. We also found the abundance of signs encouraging us to tip the staff a bit off putting.
I sent you e-mail that we had a problem with this trip but I never received any reply from you.
