Great experience. The walk in Everglades National Park was informative and we saw a lot of wildlife. Guide was extremely knowledgeable. Transportation was timely and comfortable. The only down side was we had to wait about an hour for the airboat to return from another trip. I don't believe that happens often and was due to the unusual volume of trips that day. We could have spent more time at the Park which I think we all would have rather done than wait for the boat. However, when the boat arrived we had a wonderful trip and visit on the island. Great time
This trip was nothing short of amazing! I'm a Miami/Fort Lauderdale local and I have done tons of Everglades excursions over my lifetime, none have compared to this. First, you get picked up, which makes it extremely convenient. Our tour guide, Ben, was pleasant, knowledgeable, funny, and patient. He made it seem like he enjoyed the tour as much as we did. The tour itself included a walk at the Everglades National Park, where Ben explained various tidbits about the area and the animals that we saw. You can get a little dirty but that was part of the fun! After the walking tour, we went to the Miccosukee indian village, where a local explained customs and traditions. It was extremely interesting to learn about the culture. Lastly, Ben had us take an air-boat ride. It was a little over an hour ride. We spotted some alligators and different types of birds. The ride alone was worth it. It was exciting but safe-for those of you who worry. The boat tour guide was also very friendly and patient in showing us the different smaller islands. Needless to say, I highly recommend this tour if you're a nature lover and want to experience more than a cheap and quick air-boat ride from the competitors. Thank you Ben for a great time!
The guide was very good,but the van used for transport had a broken speaker system so sitting in the back we travelled 1 hour going to the nature walk but could not hear much of his description of the area. The nature walk was very good but the boat ride in the Everglades was a joke. A very noisy ride to see just a little more of what we had seen on the nature walk but it was a boat ride.
Great trip. Highly rrecommend.
Professional, knowledgeable and really nice guides with lots of exposure to alligators and incredible birds.
Fabulous! Everything about this tour was excellent from beginning to end! Ben was the most delightful and knowledgeable guide you could hope for. We learned so much from him as we walked along the canal in the Everglades National Park, with alligators sunning themselves on the banks! He pointed out all kinds of beautiful birds and told us about their habits and lifestyles. He explained how to survive in the Everglades by eating certain grasses and avoiding others that are very poisonous. The airboat was also exciting as we zoomed over the reeds, looking for alligators. Our airboat guide literally called over an alligator and had it stay right next to the boat as he explained their habits in detail - totally fascinating. Ben then dropped us off at our hotel and we were sorry it was all over. HIGHLY recommend this tour with Wild Lime Adventures through Viator!!!
Had a wonderful day with Stacy in the Glades. Saw turtle, lizards, many, many beautiful birds and well over 60 gators. Walks were casual, not rushed. Air boat ride was fun, well-interpreted and educational...so much fun to be out on the water. Great day!
The walk was rather long and warm but well worth it for all the animals we saw up close and the fascinating info we learned!
This tour is amazing and Ben is super nice!!! He is a knowlsgeable man with passion about this Everglades reserve. Highly recommend this tour
This was definitely a highlight of my vacation to Florida! Our guide (Ben) was so knowledgeable, personable, and made sure we had a great time. We saw so many alligators on the air boat tour!! It was so much fun - I highly recommend this trip with Wild Lime Adventures! Thanks, Ben!
This was a highlight of our cruise trip! We had a layover so wanted to see Everglades and highlights of area. Wild Lime Adventures was definitely the place to go. Stacy picked us up right at our hotel as promised. Ended up just me and my husband. Stacy was our guide and what a great one she was. Even stopped for a Cuban coffee! Just another plus to the wonderful day of seeing alligators, baby alligators, birds, turtles and snakes. Loved Stacy's expertise on all the flora and fauna of the Everglades. With walking we were able to see so many wonderful things. Coming from Nevada we were so interested in all the different species that were in the Everglades and Stacy was excellent at pointing out things we would have missed. The air boat ride with Ernie was spectacular. He was so interesting to listen to about his heritage and growing up in the Everglades. We couldn't have asked for a better day! Stacy was so wonderful and offered snacks and water on way back. Then we were dropped off right at airport! Amazing service and attention to everything! We loved the tour and Stacy! If ever we are back in the area we would want to do another adventure with this company! Amazing! Thanks Stacy for a truly memorable day!
The tour was very professionally handled. Our pick up and drop off from the hotel was timely and the tour walk through the everglades was very informative. My children really enjoyed it and found it very interesting. My only disappointment was not being able to tour the native indian village but that was due to a fire blockade and it was beyond the tour guides control. I would highly recommend this tour.
