Everything was fine. There were delays, but it was okay. Airboating was the best of the programs, especially since we saw an alligator. The style of the presenter of the alligator show was too much for me, and I felt sorry for the baby alligator during the photo shoot, but I understood that these things are necessary for the national park to survive. The bus driver/tour guide was clear and precise, everything went well overall.

Very nice experience and well organised. Enjoyed the airboat ride a lot. Our captain was very informative and motivated to make our ride as nice as possible. The crocodile show in the end was nothing special and it made us fill a bit sad for the animals.

The bus ride to and from Holiday Eco Park was smooth and the driver/guide was informative. The airboat tour was pleasant. The guide was quite knowledgeable, and we were lucky enough to spot an alligator, which swam right up to the boat and studied us as we were studying him! The live alligator show after the boat tour was interesting. I have respect for the mission of the alligator rescue and what they are doing to help the gators that are injured or unable to return to the wild. The host of the show, who I did not recognize even though he apparently had a show on Animal Planet, was one of the most obnoxious "entertainers" I've ever encountered. He engaged with the audience by making inappropriate jokes about in-laws and divorce, and targeted certain members of the audience, who he returned to throughout the show. When the audience didn't laugh at his rude jokes he used profanity, despite the fact that children were present. Then he exhorted the audience to tip generously.
