  • We had a great experience on our tour today. The guide was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. It was awesome seeing gators up so close!  more »
  • This is a VERY interactive guided tour! Not only do you get to get in a box with a 2-foot gator, but so much more! You’ll see multiple live feedings; you’ll feed a tortoise (or four!); and dare I say....  more »

  • This place is very awesome and will give a unique and hands-on reptile experience. Tyler is well educated on the animals and makes the trip very worthwhile. If your thinking about visiting, definitely do so. You won't regret it! Thanks Tyler for such an awesome tour and we will definitely be back!! 5+ stars!
  • Great experience! Tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided an excellent tour! If you are into reptiles then this is definitely a spot for you to check out. Worth every dime to get in and you get to hold a baby gator which was awesome. Reptiles are well taken care of. Highly recommend!
