This trip was one of the highlights of our holiday. Captain Steven was incredibly knowledgeable and really good fun. Would highly recommend doing an air boat ride and using Everglades city airboat tours.

Sympathy is not a well known word in the Everglades except there. This is a small airboat company with only 5 boats in which you can be max 6 people. This means that you have good chance to have a private tour. Boats are new, nice and the headphones in which you can talk to the other guests is great.... More

We had an awesome and sometimes thrilling tour in the mangroves. The whole family liked it a lot. We saw a manatee and an alligator, but it was the ride that made everything worth every dollar.

Made an awesome boat tour today. You Really get your moneysworth. Had A good captain who told us a lot about the everglades. He was easy to understand because of the headsets on board. We saw a gator and several racoons From up close. The boat looked better than those of other companies. Highly recommended!

We had driver Josh, a nice and polite guy who did tell some stories about the mangroves and answered all questions well. He was a careful driver and did speed when it was safe to do so. We made the reservation by phone 2 hours before and when we arrived a bit earlier we could get a tour earlier as... More
