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

We finally made it over to the Everglades and was so thankful to have Jenny show us around. She was not only extremely knowledgeable, but very fun and interesting to be around. Some fascinating stories about the history of the park! Coming within inches of 10 foot gators was definitely a highlight as well.

My family and I took a holiday to Florida this year and one of the high lights was doing a kayak tour of the everglades. We contacted Todd months before our trip and he couldn't be more helpful in booking us in on a day that we had free and reassureing us how safe it was going to be. He... More

We had a night kayak with Tod 2 years ago, it was the highlight of our holiday and so on this trip to the States (we live in the UK) we were so keen to go out with Tod again that we would have moved our holiday dates to accommodate his availability if that had been necessary. I can't exaggerate... More

My family and I really enjoyed our sunset tour of the Everglades with Jenny. We saw lots of alligators and birds, with the kayaking through the mangrove "forests" being the highlight.

My girlfriend and I did the morning kayak tour in June with Jenny, and we couldn't have been happier. We didn't really know what to expect at all, but as soon as we met Jenny we realized we were going to have a great experience (at an amazing value!). We had a completely private tour, which was contrasted by the... More

My son and I were looking to hike some trails in the Big Cypress area and he saw the ad for private tours- Tour the Glades. I called Tod up to arrange a hike and he set us up with Jennie to hike the next day. I knew we were going to have a good time from the moment we... More
