My two Little’s, boyfriend and myself LOVED the eco tour!! Seeing and learning about all things Florida was so neat. They handled my two year old having a melt down on the bus too! Didn’t even seem to bother them!! Thanks so much! Will be coming back! And the gator restaurant was so good!

Had a very wonderful tour! Got to see lots of wild hogs, gators, cows, turkeys, and other wildlife! Jungle Joe was great! Stopped to eat after at the Gator Shack and the food was great and super filling! Would definitely recommend!

Rob was filled with all kinds of interesting things about everything we saw and didn't see on the eco tour at Babcock Ranch. My 10 yr old grandson thought he knew a lot about alligators until Rob filled him in on lots more. The birds were fantastic as were the cows and hogs/pigs and cowboys. Definitely a great place to visit any time of year.

We have lived here for awhile but had never been here . Our 2 granddaughters came to visit from Texas . We decided to take them on the eco tour and glad we did . We took them on Friday and Rhonda was our guide and she was fantastic . She let the 5 year old help feed the cracker cows , hogs and turkeys . Saw lots of wildlife and learned alot about the area . Unfortunately it started raining and there was lightning so we had to cut the tour short . It was right about the telegraph swap that it started . We went back to the gift shop to try and wait it out but it didn't let up anytime soon . They told us we could come back anytime soon to do the trip again .
We went back the following Wednesday and took the tour again this time the Raptor guy took us and he was great . Saw alot of alligators and even got to pet a baby alligator. Would definitely recommend this to people of all ages .
