We offer guided kayak and hiking trips, motorboat tours as well as overnight camping. All our tours are led by Native Naturalist Guides that can assist with everything you'll need during your visit. We are priced the same as the "big group tour" companies but only do Private Tours. Quality instead of quantity is our goal. This approach is better for the environment and the absolute best way to explore the Everglades....just you and your own personal guide. « less

My brother and i had a great time with Tod. He was very informative, took pictures of us and was excellent at spotting wildlife. Last year i went on a trip with Shurr which i thought was very good as well. But the major difference is that Tod does private tours - with Shurr you were in a bigger group... More

We went on the boat tour with cpt Jim. A great experience from start to finish. A fantastic boat with a fantastic cpt who knew everything about the area and wildlife. The added bonus was the rods he brought along which I caught a 16lb snook on!! (Couldn't have landed without him!) Fantastic with the children and brought some great... More

My wife and 3 children were guided by Tod through this beautiful landscape a week or so ago. Tod himself was a true gentleman - Polite, attentive and amicable to us all. He has a vast knowledge of the area and it's fauna and flora and is happy to share it with you. I was a little nervous about getting... More

To see wild life in the Everglades - especially in August - you need a tour guide. I highly recommend using Tour the Glades. Tod Dahlke clearly enjoys giving these tours. He has not only extensive knowledge but also deep respect and awe for the glades. Although he has probably been through the same area hundreds of times he was... More

Me and my boyfriend did the kayak trip with Jenny. It was a perfect trip and a lot of fun! Jenny was a great guide and gave us a lot of information about the everglades. We can't imagine there is a better kayak tour available than this. When we come back we'll definitely do it again! :-)

I want to say a big Thank You to Jenny, to your openhearted way you are! It was an awesome experience paddling through the mangrove forests alone with Jenny, enjoying every minute leaded by her. You cannot be sceared of alligators at all after listening to Jennys words about them. She is very well educated and knows the wild as... More

I decided to take two groomsmen and the groom to be down to the Everglades for a weekend long bachelor camping adventure. This tour was our first activity after arrival and to this day made the biggest impression. Underestimating the brutality of the summer heat and dexterity of the biting insects this far south, we were helpless until Tod showed... More

A friend of mine and myself decided to do this trip quite spontaniously. We had little time to see the Everglades and wanted to do something memorable. We contacted Tod like 2 days before the trip. He was booked out but his friend Jenny was able to jump in. We met early in the morning and after some instructions and... More

My friend and myself took a sunrise tour with Tod the other morning. We were a little nervous about being in the water with alligators and not knowing what to expect. As soon as we met Tod his knowledge and experience put us at ease immediately. We were not experienced at kayaking and Tod was so patient and allowed us... More
