Pickup details

We normally pick up from hotels along the City of Miami Beach (not Surfside, Bal Harbor, Sunny Isles) on Collins Avenue (by default from 45 street all way to 1 street, and sometimes from 71street down) and Miami Downtown at Holiday Inn Port of Miami. Sometimes, when possible and as a courtesy, from different hotels and other areas. A supplement charge may be asked, depending on the location. Please inquiry with us for more details about pick up locations and the possibility of pick up from other areas. Wait for the transportation outside the Hotel , by the entrance. Because we pick up from different locations, the departure time could be immediate or after over one hour from the first pick up. We normally have only one departure per day. The pick up time most of the times is between 7:20 to 10:00 am. We could have a different time as well or an afternoon departure if the morning is full. Please contact us for the exact pick up time and location. Normally we give the time and pick up location the day before in the afternoon. Total duration of the tour most of the times is 4-5 hours. In some occasions , when we use a bus, it is 5-7 hours. Most of the times we transport in small groups, using elegant, comfortable, High Roof Black Sprinter Vans. The airboat ride and alligator show is always in English. The driver on the way to the park will illustrate in their language, other than English, the facts about the everglades and assist them at the park. The commentaries in the vehicle might be multilingual. Depending on the day, they could be done in multiple languages.

The tour guide was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable which made the journey to and from the Everglades enjoyable and a welcome addition to the trip. The boat ride at the Everglades was throughly enjoyable (hold on to your hats!) with a funny and friendly Captain and a short but enjoyable alligator show afterwards. We would definitely recommend this trip.

The bus was old and dirty. There weren’t enough seat on the upper level to seat everyone. You could not see out of the windows on the lower level because the windows were all scratched and filthy dirty.
Daniel_S, Mar 2024
Thanks to Antoine our guide. It was a great experience. Everything was working well from pick up to drop off perfect organization. It made our day. What we've appreciated the most, was the fact, that we didn't had to queue, as we were the first group. This tour is highly recommended.
Excellent tour!
igorgunn, Feb 2024
Many thank to our Tourguide Antuan. Made this trip very entertaining and comfortable. Comfortable transportation, interesting stories, and amazing guidance in the park.
Fun experience in a great asset of Florida
David_K, Feb 2024
I thought it was a great experience n enjoyed the commentary on the way out by Max. Too bad there were only 2 alligators spotted. But it was daytime n I realize they sleep in the day
Disappointed we did not see any wildlife
Matt_O, Feb 2024
The driver was fun and knowledgeable. She was great. The jet boat ride was disappointing because we saw no wildlife
Response from Host, Feb 2024
We are very sorry about that. Unfortunately, we are unable to control nature and accurately forecast the level of wildlife you may come across. On the way to the park we consistently emphasize that we cannot promise the amount of wildlife you will encounter. We strive to provide top-notch service in areas within our control, but unfortunately, we may not be able to assist with everything else.
The only saving grace was...
Pooja_S, Feb 2024
The only saving grace was our pleasant driver Waste of the day and money… do not recommend this trip to anyone Your day will be much better spent just sitting at the beach
Response from Host, Feb 2024
We apologize for the impression you have received. Our goal is to provide top-notch service to all of our clients, and the majority of them are happy with our services. We aim to maintain the highest level of service quality at all times. It appears that your perspective is excessively negative and pessimistic for everything you experienced,not acknowledging the effort we have invested in it.
The tour guide Simona was...
Joanne_J, Feb 2024
The tour guide Simona was great, lively, fun and informative. The boat guide was also very good at his job. We enjoyed the tour. The pickups were tedious and it took a long time.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
It is very important to understand that this is a shared tour. We offer courtesy pick ups from different locations and we are very flexible in many cases. This is one of our top benefits that sets us apart from our competitors. Specifically in your case, you had only 2 extra pick ups after yours. Which is excellent, as a general rule. One of the two was farther away, but it was on the way to the destination, without impacting the journey. We really don’t understand where you found it long and tedious.
Excellent highly recommend
Nicola_P, Feb 2024
Tour guide and driver excellent french guy. Highly recommend. Very informative and pick up all on time. Great energy and info throughout the journey. Everglades very good and no queing
Good alligator show and comfortable ride!
Sahitya_K, Feb 2024
The tour was exactly what was in the description. Our tour guide Antoine was knowledgeable and on time. The sprinter van ride to the park was comfortable. The tour involved an air boat ride which was underwhelming but nothing to do with the tour company. The alligator show afterwards was very good.
solid shuttle service, mediocre time at everglades
Gabrielle_M, Feb 2024
The shuttling to/from "the everglades" was convenient and helpful, but the entrance chosen was not very natural, and the air boat tour was "too early in the day for alligators" according to the airboat captain - while you can't guarantee anything in nature, you can time things to give the best opportunity, and this did not. The "alligator show" was fun and entertaining. However, we spent basically the same amount of time at "the everglades" as on the road - this entrance had no opportunities to walk around or experience anything more than an airboat tour right on the edge of the "everglades" - you could see the road from the water the entire time. It was "everglades lite", and other than the help of the shuttle getting to/from the edge of the park, did not feel worth the ticket price
Response from Host, Feb 2024
There is not really best time of the day to see alligators. Unfortunately we cannot control the nature. And if the captain made that statement, it was probably just to rationalize the situation. It's disappointing that you didn't understand the legitimate explanation for why we leave at that time. Instead, we make it a point to arrive early in order to provide you with a significant advantage, bypassing the lengthy wait times and crowded lines at the park. You saw firsthand the number of people who arrived while you were present. Instead, you should express gratitude for our intelligent decision. Selecting the appropriate time to arrive is a key factor in providing superior services to our clients. All other aspects of timing matched the description we provided. Regarding the price, it’s important to understand that only the entrance fee is about $40. The difference of $37 is to offer our high-quality service in transporting clients in small groups with the use of a luxurious and comfortable Black Sprinter Van. We are sorry that you did not see the convenience in that.
Everglades experience.
Peter_H, Feb 2024
A great taste of the Everglades. Simone, our driver, was great fun, entertaining and informative and she really looked after us. On the drive to/from the park, she pointed out the sights on Miami Beach and Downtown Miami with local insight. We enjoyed the alligator show and the airboat ride, our airboat captain was also entertaining and very knowledgeable.
Fantastic and stress free
Charles_M, Feb 2024
Our driver was fantastic. Great communicator!!! He was always available and kept us updated on traffic and our activities.
David_M, Feb 2024
Fun time, very lucky we saw a gator and lots of beautiful birds in the Everglades. Tip: go early to avoid the crowds.
Jon_R, Feb 2024
“Tour” was total of 3 hours including 1 hour drive time from Miami to the Everglades Holiday Park and back. The actual boat ride was about 1 hour. We basically went around in a 2 mile loop and were constantly surrounded by other airboats.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Sorry to correct your statement. If it was about 1 hour driving to the park, it must be about 1 hour driving back. Considering that you saw the alligator presentation and some time spent at the park, the total time was at least 4 hours , and not 3 hours. We would appreciate the informations given would be more accurate. Thank you
Great guide makes for a great tour.
kalbert114, Feb 2024
Our young Italian female guide and driver was excellent. We started in Miami Beach on the English tour. She told us about the two cities and the bridges to other islands while we were on our way to the Miami hotels. She also pointed out highlights all the way to Ft Lauderdale along with what to expect at the Everglades Holiday Park. She was at our hotel at the assigned time and available at the Park to answer our questions. It was a great day.
Everglades fun
Elizabeth_R, Feb 2024
Great tour lots of fun. Guides were very knowledgeable. Bit cold in the morning but it got warmer mid day. The van arrived on time.
Incredible Experience with lots of Excitement and Laughter
Fidana_H, Feb 2024
My sister and I went on our first Everglades Alligator tour from Miami and we had a great experience and time. Our driver and tour guide Simona was incredible, we learned a lot, and laughed a lot during our drive thanks to her! Shame we didnt take a picture with her.. Everglades Holiday Park was very nice, and it was nice to see and get on the airboats. Unfortunately we had a cold and breezy day so had no luck seeing the alligators roaming around in the water but saw some giant iguanas trying to catch some sun on top of the trees and being in the middle of nature was just stunning. At the end of the tour we were taken to watch Paul Bedard’s show with the alligators that he has rescued over the years, and it was both incredible and funny as I had actually thought they weren't real alligators that he was lifting up and holding hands with, while making the best jokes! Thank you! Ive started to support his page on ig afterwards @gatorboysalligatorrescue Truly amazing one can learn so much from a few hr tour! My sister and I had a wonderful time..
Everglades trip from Miami
Kathy_M, Feb 2024
antoine, our tour guide was fabulous !! From pick up to instructions regarding the morning activities was seamless. Really enjoyed the airboat tour through the Everglades- great experience!! Would recommend booking these guys 😜
Ok, but not an adventure
Stephanie_K, Feb 2024
Overall we appreciated the company picking us up and guiding us safely to the tour point. We were disappointed in the length of the air boat ride through the Everglades themselves (basically a very small loop), and the fact that three other boats were following the same route as us. It was not distinctive or unique. We were all then sheparded in to an alligator show. Which was okay. This is a very commercial, very touristy tour. We were hoping for a bit more personalization- we probably just chose the wrong tour. This would be great for families.
A must!
Michelle_O, Feb 2024
It was amazing! On time, great customer service, wonderful presentation and sense of humor. Loved it very much
