Has anyone ever did the Everglades Tour and was it worth the money? Our plane doesn't leave Miami until 5:25 so we need something to do to make our time go by faster. We have a 7 yrs old son who will be traveling with us and he would go crazy having to sit at an airport all day. Any other suggestions on what to do would be greatly appreciated?
We did this tour last month. It was cold and rainy so that kind of spoiled our everglade trip, but it was better than sitting in the airport. They alos took us to Flamingo Gardens, which was very nice. Lots of animals that your kids would enjoy.
We rented a car and drove to Everglades Holiday Park. It was an easy 35 min. drive. This tour was the highlight of our cruise last year! It was absolutely, positively beautiful! We saw at least 15 alligators (ran over a few too!), the largest bird in North America, and tons of very beautiful scenery. It was a blast speeding over the water in the airboat! We loved it when we'd turn and spin sideways. It was SO much fun and we'd all do it again in a second!!
BTW - The price was very reasonable - I think it was about $12 per person for adults.
