We enjoyed our tour of the Everglades. Marc was a funny, informed, kind tour guide. The day was varied, with two boat rides, a short hike and the drive through the park. And lunch! Highly recommend this tour. A knowledgeable guide is worth the price.

We enjoyed our adventure, saw baby alligators, and large ones, turtles, Dolphins, Manapee's and many different types of birds. Or tour guide was very knowledgeable. The food at the Oyster House was delicious and good size portions. The walking tour was a bit buggy fortunately our guide had repellant (great idea). We felt the wilderness part of the tour was...

Thank you for nice review. It sounds like you saw an abundance of wildlife and had a great time. March has been a bit buggy on one short section of our nature walk portion of our tour but thankfully 2-3 good slaps and the mosquitoes are taken care of. There are times and places in the Everglades (town of Flamingo!)... More

Our family ages 5-68 all had great day. Pete, our guide was knowledgable and attentive. It was mid March and the temperature was a little below normal and the boat rides were a little chilly. Bring plenty of layers. Overall worth the money and time.

Thank you for the nice words Corley! We did brave the chilly morning temperatures which warmed up to a nice 78 degree day by the afternoon. Your family was so enjoyable to spend the day with and the kids asked great questions and showed tremendous curiosity for the natural world. More

We boarded our bus and the adventure again. Pete told us all about the area we were driving in. Trees, flowers etc. The airboat ride was great. A lot of bird and animals. Great Safari.

Bob was fablous and full of knowledge. Our airboat operator (Gary) was very friendly and full of knowledge as well. We saw a lot of birds and gators and loved the scenery.

We're glad we coaxed Captain Bob out of retirement. Captain Bob's Excellent Adventure isn't the same without him and we're glad you enjoyed it. More

Great way to cover all the Everglades has to offer. Wildlife, nature and beauty. Comfortable van. Most delicious grouper sandwich ever at the lunch stop!

The trip involved three stops. They were great. A hike, boat ride and airboat ride. Problem was they were one hour each totaling 3 hours plus 1 hour for a nice lunch. Problem was 7 hours in the van. Bad traffic. I would recommend changing by eliminating the 1.5 hour ride looking at gators in a drainage ditch and go... More

Hello Karl and thank you for your review. I apologize that the traffic delayed your return. We love the spring training baseball visitors but the downside is when a game finishes it causes traffic jams! One of the benefits of being picked up at your hotel is you don't have to drive anywhere. The downside is you are picked up... More

This safari was a great way to sample the everglades in one day. We saw lots of wildlife (alligators of all sizes, exotic birds of all kinds and even dolphins along the Gulf coast). Anne did an outstanding job of pointing out the amazing array of animals and plants and gave us a lot of very interesting history about the... More

This was a good choice for 3 older relatives. Our guide Anne was very knowledgeable and kept up a full day of information, both in route and at each stop. However, the microphone/ speakers in the van were not working properly; so, we missed a lot of good stuff because we could not hear. She attempted to adjust things, but... More

We're glad you enjoyed the tour and I was disappointed to hear the PA system went out on your visit. It has been fixed and I must commend Anne - the show must go on - and she did her best to make sure that the tour was still a success. More
