Gatlin_J, Mar 2024
Guide was super funny and nice. Very easy to talk to, quick responses and open communication. Favorite part was when the captain opened the boat up and really zoomed over the water.
Ok experience, value

Fort Lauderdale Gator tour.

The trip was fine, we didn’t see any alligators. The capital was nice and knowledgeable. I preferred the open airboats we had in Miami vs the closed boat in Fort Lauderdale. My crew really liked Al our driver who picked us up. Al was awesome.

Very busy. Beautiful area of the Everglades
Zach_V, Mar 2024
The airboat ride was great. Didn’t see too many animals but the area was beautiful. The alligator show was interesting. This place was packed with people. It’s a popular site for cruise ship excursions. I’m glad we did the tour because the guides got us through the process much faster than if we had gone on our own.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Dear Customer, If you traveling at Spring break time is very busy not only on Everglades all over South Florida. I hope is no reason for 3 stars.
Susan_G, Mar 2024
An excellent tour. They picked us up at the hotel and escorted us every step of the way. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable

two thumbs up for Alligator Al
Michael_B, Mar 2024
Alligator Al was great. He came to pick us up from our Boutique Hotel, Snooze, the day of. Just call him, he is very accommodating and helpful. He was funny and friendly and had great advice on where to sit during the live alligator show, where to sit on the airboat, as well as where to get refreshments. He had jokes and good advice. He went out of his way to make sure everyone on the tour got the most out of the experience. I would definitely recommend Alligator Al to tour the everglades.

We enjoyed the ride through the Everglades. The quides did a good job. The demonstration by the volunteer after the ride was very informative and fun.
George_E, Feb 2024
Seeing the wildlife, wish I could have seen more fish. Also wish the airboat was a little smaller it could have went faster and been more fun.
Great time!

Great experience visiting the Everglades! We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel and the owners were so incredibly friendly! We were able to skip some of the lines and enjoyed every piece of the tour: airboat tour, gift shops, alligator show, etc! If you are looking to go to the Everglades this is a wonderful option!
