We were in the Southeast Florida area for a week and this was one of our best experiences of the trip. Our bus driver was amazing, very friendly and knowledgeable. We learned so much about not only the ranch history, but Florida history, as well. Plus seeing all those animals in their natural habitat was just a wonderful added addition to the tour. We highly recommend you visit Babcock Ranch whenever you're in the area. It's 100% worth the drive.
