Just completed this trip yesterday. It was definitely more than we expected. Our guide was fantastic, informative and very attentive. We did 4 activities which were all above expectations. The lunch location was a hole in the wall and so delish! I will for sure recommend this trip to my family and friends.
We had a great day on our tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and great fun. We say so many alligators it became boring!! Other people we met who had also gone out for the day only saw two!
Should have gone with our guy. All in all had a great day, I think a small group is such a good idea.
Would recommend definitely.
Wonderful interesting introduction to the Everglades. Mark was a terrific attentive tour guide. Would highly recommend.
We had a wonderful day doing this trip! We were picked up from our hotel by our guide, Julio. He was super knowledgeable and shared a lot of good information about the animal and plant life and the local ecosystem. We enjoyed the airboat ride and saw plenty of alligators and birds. Then we did a nature hike. Lunch was awesome. The highlight of the day for me was having the dolphins race us on the boat trip at the end of the day! Over all a wonderful trip! Truly recommending this one!
Highly recommended: this is a very well thought out tour, and Erin our guide gave us so much good information and interesting stories as we drove from place to place. Seeing the wildlife and birds was as good as I'd hoped, and the lunch was very good. The manatees were there for us the day we went which was a special treat. Thanks to all who helped make it a wonderful day out for us.
Zak is an amazing guide, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. He cared that our group had a great time.
The boat captains were both competent and helpful.
Overall a great tour.
Great variety of locations and we saw loads of birds, alligators, manatee, turtles. Super guide who was very informative. Lovely lunch. Great day out.
This is an absolutely marvelous experience for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Zap was wonderful. Knowledgeable, personable, organized and deliberate in his planning and care of his guests. I highly recommend without reservation.
Our tour guide Julio was awesome. He was very informative kept everything on track for the day. We saw lots of birds and Gators. Our lunch stop was great. The Meal was prepared as order and all four of us on the tour thought it was the Bomb for a tour lunch! This tour is for everyone kids included. Everything was top notch on this tour!
Fantastic, full on day trip. Thoroughly enjoyed our day, hotel pick up and drop off on time, great guide, super lunch and wonderful memories
This was an EXCELLENT tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw literally hundreds of alligators as well as birds, turtles, snakes, fish and dolphins. Would highly recommend this tour.
Great full day trip with lots of gators, birds and even dolphins. Knowledgeable guide and smaller group. I would recommend this to anyone!
This was an amazing trip with an even more amazing guide. Mark was full of information and made the whole experience a step above others. Loved this guy and his passion for the everglades, the animals and the environment altogether. Would recommend this trip over others. Long day but saw and did everything I wanted.
Great guide Zac, very informative great sense of humour. His enthusiam and knowledge was a delight, we learned so much about the eco systems and wild life.
Viator could not be more accommodating. I changed hotels at the last minute and they made sure to set me up with a pick-up close to our hotel. The tour was fantastic. Learned a few new things. We even had the pleasure of a duo of dolphins follow our boat and play in the waves that our boat made. So much fun.
We had a lovely day touring the Everglades on this trip. Our guide, Erin, was very friendly and helpful and made the experience one to remember
Great trip, starting with on time pick up by our tour guide, Mark. Leisure pace all day, never hurried us through anything. Saw many alligators all day long. Hundreds of birds, pointed out and identified by Mark his knowledge of wildlife and Florida, and the love of his job made for a perfect days. Recommend this trip 100.
This trip was awesome! Thanks to Zak for showing us all the birds on our bird checklist! We saw some Roseate Spoonbill flying : We saw a bunch of alligators too! I would recommend this trip for sure!
This is an absolutely wonderful tour. This full-day tour that goes all the way from the Atlantic to the Gulf Coast includes an airboat ride through the Everglades, a nature walk and another boat ride through the mangrove islands. Our guide knew names of all the birds - we saw lots of alligators. It was one of the best trips I have ever taken.
