We like to say that Everglades City may have the name but we have everything else! Located in Florida City just 10 miles from the main entrance of the Everglades National Park. Tours in the Glades offers Guided Everglades Tours of all kinds. Full Day Tours, Morning Tours, Afternoon Tours and Night Walks. Sightseeing, Paddling with canoes or kayaks. Wet Walks or "Slough Slogs" as the locals say in the Cypress Domes. Alligator Watching, Bird watching and more.We also offer canoe rentals and all the info for a self guided tour. The national park service chose the East Coast for the main entrance for its unique opportunity to see 9 eco-systems in one day. We have 7 canoe trails from marine estuaries in Florida Bay to old moonshiner trails in the red mangrove. 6 biking trails through the Rock Pineland, Dwarf Cypress and sloughs and coastal marsh prairies. Hiking trails and easy boardwalks, overlooks and paved trails make a great day for all types of adventurers!

We (my wife Magda, my son Patrick and myself) enjoyed this full-day tour very much. We had a boat ride with kayaks and also short walks. Our group, guided by Careen, was a German speaking group, so Careen explained everything in German. We enjoyed watching the crocodiles and also saw turtles. Of course, we donated some blood to the mosquitos.... More

I did a Full Day Tour and Night Walk with Tours in the Glades, and it was one of the best experiences of my tourist life. Kayaking through mangroves and grassland filled with native fish and alligators...walking knee deep through swampy areas filled with cypress trees and exotic plants...watching a crocodile sleep on the bank and a manatee float lazily...

Great full day adventure in the Everglades, with Anhinga trail (gators, turtles, birds galore), wet walk (gators, water moccasin, and just amazing beauty), kayak through mangroves (more gators and excitement). So much to see, so beautiful, so much adventure. Jeremy was an amazing guide, very knowledgable, interested, interesting, and really really enjoying sharing what he knew with us. He kept... More

The Everglades National Park is beautiful. Couldn't believe how many alligators were right in front of us. Didn't have to go to an Alligator Park and big pay money to see them. There were several within a few feet of us. The birds and iguanas were amazing. Be prepared with your camera and good walking shoes. The boardwalk through the... More

This full day in the Everglades was absolutely fascinating. We had a perfect start on the Anhinga trail watching about 28 alligators, turtles, the elegant and beautiful catbird, blue herons, white ibis and lots of other animals. We had a great guide, Caren, full of knowledge and experience and just wonderful preparing this exciting day for us. We went with... More

Had the best day kayaking the mangroves, exploring the Ahinga trail and slogging through the marsh with Jeremy Bishop. Jeremy is knowledgeable and competent and we felt safe and cared for all day with each activity. The pick-up and drop-off at the Hostel, the transportation, the logistics of hauling kayaks and lunch were a flawless operation. I especially liked the... More

We booked a rental canoe online to take to the Everglades and paddle nine mile pond. The booking was confirmed by email. When we arrived at the hostel the next morning, the lady we spoke to said that she was new, and didn't know how to do canoe rentals, but her boss would be with us shortly. I gave this... More

We stayed at the Everglades International Hostel end of December and we decided to go for the Full Day tour in the Everglades! Our guide was Jeremy and he was amazing ! Even though the weather was not the best, we had so much fun walking in the cypress dome and kayaking through the mangroves. We saw couple of alligators... More

The Everglades national park was closed because of the gov shut down in oct but I could still do a tour in an environment similar to the everglades so I don't feel like I missed out :). It was really fun, a small intimate group which was good for my first kayaking trip because I was a bit nervous! We... More
