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!

“Best way to EXPERIENCE the Everglades!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2011

These guys know how to do it right! If you want to do more than just drive through and look at the birds, take one or more of these tours. You will really get into the everglades - walking, boating and tromping about. Walking in the cypress domes is one of the most beautiful and unique experiences you will have and something you are not likely to get anywhere else. My husband and I have been to this area several times over the years and have taken one the these tours every time. They are fun and reasonably priced. The outfit is well equipped and the guides are friendly and very knowledgeable. We were without a car this time and I appreciated the guide's willingness to make a stop at the great Robert's fruit stand on the way back. Fun for all ages!

“Great full day tour - very knowledgeable guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

I went on the full day tour. I highly recommend it for people who want to get a very comprehensive tour of the everglades. The wet walk was my favorite part of the tour. The cypress trees were so beautiful. Canoeing on the West Lake was very enjoyable and beautiful too. Great tour for a reasonable price!!

“You must experience this amazing adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

We went on a night walk & it was an experience we'll never forget!! Our 2 kids, 5 & 7, were delighted & the tour leader paid special attention to pointing out the wonders of the Everglades to them. We saw baby alligators & frogs, snakes which was a real thrill for us all. We cannot wait to come back & do the "Wet Walk" when the kids are a bit bigger!
