What to Expect
Make your way to Shark Valley in Everglades National Park, where you’ll board an open-sided tram for a guided trip through the Everglades’ sawgrass prairies.
Throughout the tour, the naturalist guides will help spot wildlife and explain the things you see—this is a great chance to ask questions about the Everglades. Halfway through the tram tour, climb to the top of a 45-foot (14-meter) observation tower for views that extend 20 miles (31 kilometers) across the Everglades, which stretch to the horizon in every direction. 
The Shark Valley tram tour concludes at the original departure point, close to walking trails, visitor services, and Everglades National Park gift shops.

This tour isn't amazing and isn't extremely entertaining. There were a few moments I could say many would consider boring. However I think it was worth our time and money. For a low cost you get two hours of seeing the Everglades, learning about the...More

No. You can buy tickets on site. Of course, if you are going during a busy time of year, pre-buying your tickets will ensure you have a seat.
