Great scenery, Jay is very knowledgeable of the wildlife. Even shared his experiences as a fisher and bull fighter which was fun to hear. He ensured we had a great experience. Birds to gators to cows, we saw it all. Beautiful area. Peaceful. Really enjoyed the small tour boat and ability to communicate easily with the headsets.

The overall look of the attraction is minimalistic but that's not what you get for an experience. I think that their unassuming appearance allows them to offer such a "BIG" adventure. The boats are smaller than the large "Group" boats at some of the other "Air Boat Ride" attractions. This allows for a more intimate experience. My Husband & I... More

We had a wonderful time riding in the airboat with our family and 4 year old grandson (who was very afraid of alligators before we started) We had headsets on to dull the noise and communicate with the driver, and he could answer any questions we had along the way. Pointing out birds, plants anything we seen as we skimmed... More

We were staying at Orange Lake and the resort tried to sell us an excursion for the local wildlife park / over crowded airboat ride . We were looking for some less "touristy" and off the beaten path and found Kissimmee Swamp Tours via a Quick search of the internet. After reading all the positive feed back from tripadvisor, We...

Small yet comfortable boat equipped with headsets for communicating with boat captain Makes experience even more fascinating. Tons of wildlife and flora to be enjoyed. Captain "LW" is a font of information This is a welcomed break from the commercial Orlando scene. Strongly recommend. BTW, well worth traveling the extra 25 minutes to come to Kissimmee Swamp Tours rather than... More

We were staying in Kissimmee and prior to our trip I was researching air boat tours. I'm not really interested in "canned" experiences meant for tourists, so when I saw that this place involved a bit more of a drive but allowed you to see "untouched wilderness" I knew we had to go this route. We're from Canada and we... More

5 STAR review all around. Easy to get there from Lake Orange Resort in Kissimmee (though all the lights on the "strip" are a bear). Once in St. Cloud, the driving is pleasurable: country roads with gorgeous scenery. Staff friendly and professional. Captain John knowledgeable. Bathrooms neat and clean. Headphone sets and boat up to date and easy to access.... More

From first contacting Cpt Rob Murchie we were so looking forward to our 90 minute airboat ride. Rob and I exchanged numerous emails whilst we were back in the UK planning our trip. He even sent us directions from our hotel in Kissimmee. We were so surprised and delighted to see we had our own personalised boat tour with just... More

This was my second time on an airboat adventure (First time at Kissimmee Swamp Tours) but it was my kids and my friend and her kids first time ever! It was definitely and adventure and the 90 min tour was full and informative. Highly recommended. My kids loved seeing the gators just moving around and all the baby gators. I... More
