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

My two Granddaughters (cousins) both 10 yrs. old and myself did the kyack tour with Tod, the third week of June 2014. All of us were a little nervous about being so low in the water and up close and personal with local flora and fauna. Alligators in particular. Tod was so comfortable and relaxed and so knowledgeable that the... More

It surely is an exceptional offering - private tours through the Everglades. It is just the opposite of the touristy airboat racings with big groups. A silent discovery of nature on a 1:1 set up with a native guide. Fantastic. The owner Tod Dahlke is committing to 100% customer satisfaction, and that is what you really feel. He is easy... More

My grandson from Minnesota wanted to try an Everglades kayak trip so we contacted Jen. What a wonderful guide. We had never been in a kayak before and it was so easy and fun. Jen has so much knowledge about the Everglades and everything in it. This is a trip my grandson and I will always remember. We highly recommend... More
