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 wife and I had the good fortune to enlist Tour the Glades with Jenny for a kayak and boat tour of a place she obviously knows intimately, the Everglades. She was natural, warm, generous , and very professional and informative. We are so glad we decided to take this excursion, it was the highlight of our trip to this... More

We wanted to explore the everglades in a kayak, but didn't want to be part of a big group. We booked this tour from the UK having seen the reviews of others. We went with Jenny who was a fabulous tour guide. She is very knowledgable about the local flora and fauna and we had a fantastic day. We loved... More

We've been on a 4 hour kayak tour with Jenny. It was fantastic. Jenny told us a lot about the everglades and the mangroves. Since we had only two kayaks we were able to be much closer to the beautiful birds than big tourist groups. We even had a huge alligator just a few feet in front of us. Jenny... More

There are lots of tours in The Everglades but I'm pretty sure there is none like this one. Tod is a great dude and guide. We felt joy when he talked about a special plant or animal. This man loves what he does, this man IS the everglades. Do not go in large groups, call Tod and he will show... More

We booked a tour with Tod in early September, we where touring the states and I wanted to visit the Everglades but wanted to get away from the more touristy options. We did the kayak tour in the morning and the 10000 island boat trip in the afternoon. The kayak tour was great there were four of us so we... More

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! :-)
