Our daughter picked out this tour and we were hesitant initially. I’m from Florida and went to Gatorland as a child, so expectations were biased. This tour was quite different and very cool. The experience with our guides was a lot of fun; we enjoyed our up close and personal meet & greets and learned a lot during our hands-on educational tidbits on American alligators. The yearlings and albino gators were the highlight of our morning. Time period: 2-1/2 hrs. Rating: A+.
