Tour The Glades specializes in low impact, PRIVATE eco-tours in the Everglades & 10,000 Islands. 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 "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.

Really recommendable. Tod made everything pleasant and explained a lot... More

During our trip from Miami to New York, we spent some time in the Miami area. Tod delivered a wonderful tour by kayak through the Everglades. We saw a number of birds and alligators, which was really impressive.

On our 2 week holiday to Florida we decided to take a look at the Everglades where we came across the kayaking private tours. We took a tour with Tod on 13/08/15 and he was great. Everything from water to a snack was provided and even took great pictures whilst on the trip with his GoPro and emailed them to... More

Arranged the trip prior to setting off from the UK and Todd was professional and friendly from the offset. Very courteous well mannered and very informative, knows exacty what he's talking about but comes across like you've known him forever. He made our experience of the glades a memorable and pleasurable one. Little things count also which included but not... More

What a great event! Absolutely life-chnaging. I have always wanted to see the Everglades since I was a little girl. I was worried that my imagination would be better than reality, but Todd and Capt. Jim were simply awesome and did not disappoint. I was going to book one of those airboat tours, but as luck would have it, I... More

Tod and Capt. Hank were the best. We gave them a wish list of things that we wanted to see and do and them made sure that we nailed every one. We saw dolphins, manatees, bird aviaries and went shelling on deserted islands. Tod was an expert guide and gave us the history of the 10000 island area as well... More

Went with 5 childhood friends to tour the glades with Todd! Best experience ever. Not only was Todd entertaining and knowledgeable, but he was kind enough to bring snacks for us during our kayak trip. If you are down in the area, go check him out. It's a once in a lifetime experience and you won't regret it!!!

What a wonderful trip we had on August 7th with Tod. We did the sunset kayak trip. Tod is a very pleasant and comfortable person. He took time to show us the beautiness of the Glades. And has a large knowledge of the area and the (wild)life. It is wonderful to see that Tod is still amazed and passionate about... More

My day at the Everglades with Todd was the highlight of my Miami vacation. First off - Todd was without question an amazing soul! His knowledge and passion of the wildlife made our journey that much better. We even has a small picnic in the middle of an everglade pool. Gators, fish, birds, spiders!!!!

We booked the kayaking trip 6 months in advance because we wanted to do something special for a 32nd birthday, as it happens it was also a celebration of engagement sealed only the day before!
