We called the day we arrived in Naples and it was fortunate for us that Tod was available to take us out the next day. It was just my husband and me and Tod. The first wildlife we saw was an alligator just cruising along searching for food. I knew it was going to be a magical morning and so... More

What a great day! We decided to take a private kayak tour of the mangroves rather than a noisy air boat ride when we visited the Everglades in March. After reading online reviews we decided to go with Tour The Glades. We called the day before we wanted to go, and it was no great surprise that Tod was already... More

My two teenagers, husband, and I booked a tour with Tod Dahlke and rowed kayaks through the mangrove swamps in the Everglades. He is great with kids, very knowledgeable, and knows his nature--he grew up there and clearly loves and appreciates it. Don't make the mistake of taking one of those loud, smelly boats. Do it by kayak. It's really... More

My wife and I visited the Everglades for the first time, and hooked up with Tod, and are so glad we did. It was a great trip! Tod was very professional and met with us very early in the morning so we could get started. We really enjoyed the tour, with the personal attention and the knowledge that Tod had... More

He was very knowledges about the the mangroves and plants within them and the local animals/birds. We saw birds, alligators, & a large blue crab. The mangroves were surprisingly beautiful & peaceful. Loved our time on the water. Additionally,... More

Spent a glorious April afternoon with Jenny touring the Glades with my family of me, husband and three boys (age 7,10 and 13). From the very first email, Jenny and Tod were efficient and professional and the superb service continued in person when we met Jenny at the appointed place. She could not have done more to make us feel... More

We loved our trip so much last year, we did a longer one this year. Last year we did the Experience the Everglades backcountry tour. Tod was very knowledgeable and patient, and having the tour limited to just our family of three was ideal. Kayaking quietly through the mangroves amongst the wildlife was fantastic (and we loved eating the blue... More
