Excellente présentation de Miami par notre guide ! L’activité alligators a surpassé nos attentes: photos, rencontres avec les animaux, accueil… tout y était ! Merci encore à notre super guide pour les explications en français (pratique pour les enfants ;) )

It is a great family activity. We spotted several Everglades residents while on the air boat tour, which was very exciting and informational.

Enjoyed our trip. Show at the end was good. He knows how to keep the audience engaged. Recommend it! Wish the boat ride was little longer.
