“Not a better way to see the Everglades”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

If you like off roading then you will love this tour. Parts of the tour we were driving through the swamp in a few feet of water. While on the tour the guides took us to different places were we could see gators and different species of birds. The guides definitely challenged the hummer name. We went down several steep hills and then came back up them. Very informative and a truly unique way to see the everglades. I highly recommend it!!!

“Such a waste of time and money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

This tour was really quite a waste of time and money. Very expensive for what it is, and like others have said, a lot of time was spent driving by on a dirt road alongside a major road! Extremely disappointed and felt cheated by the experience. Plus the airboat ride was shared with over 30 other people - nothing private about it.

It was odd that our guide, Dave, was gloating how he was hired to use his car as the dummy Hummer for Obama's visit to the Everglades in 2010. I mean, seriously? Of course, he also threw in the names of a few more celebrities whom he has taken round.

Regardless, I would not recommend this tour to anyone.

“What a Waste of Time and Money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

I can't see how anyone could actually have been happy with this supposed "tour". The cost was very high and all the tour excitement was driving near a busy two lane highway for a while, then into a gravel road area back into the woods on a road that became flooded for a while. No real excitement or anything out of the ordinary you couldn't see from your own rental car.

This is not what you are led to expect from their description and certainly not what you would expect for the money. This outfit is what gives Miami a bad name for tourists. We enjoyed the area more when we finally left this tour and drove in our rental car to Everglades national Park Shark Valley area.

“Excellent Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

What a great trip this was... We ventured into the Florida Everglades and were surrounded by nature in all of it's glory. The staff of Everglades Hummer Adventures were friendly, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we had a good time, on our journey. I would highly recommend this company for anyone who wishes to experience the Everglades and all that it has to offer!

“Waste of Money and Time, Not as Advertised”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

We took the 4 Hour Everglades Hummer Tour as 2 adults and 2 children. Instead of an H-2 Hummer, we were driven in the smaller H-3 Hummer over a dirt road right next to the busy highway. Then we were taken on a road that the sign said led to the Miami Dade County Jet Port. We were promised an exciting Everglades adventure and got a ride next to a busy highway on a dirt road. For a few minutes we were then taken "Off-Road" which consisted of driving up and down a few small grades, driving in 8 inches of water for 10 minutes, splashing through some puddles and parking the wheel of the SUV on a rock so we could take pictures. This was about 10-15 minutes of the tour and was the closest to an adventure it ever got. We also got out and took pictures of a plane crash memorial (ValuJet). The driver was very nice and knowledgable (George I believe) but the tour was a complete waste of money. We complained to the young guy that says he's the owner, but that also was a waste of time. Since are still on vacation in Miami. we didn't want it to ruin our trip and moved on. Stay away from this "tour". If you want to see the Everglades we saw much more at Shark Valley and Everglades Safari Boat ride that was only $23.
