“What a ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriends and I had a fantastic time on our trip! We saw several alligators and other everglades wildlife. The guide was very knowledgable and took his time to show us the sights! The rest of the staff were very friendly, nice and accommodating! Your employee P even gave us a ride back to South Beach to our hotel. A fabulous and unforgettable experience!! ;)

“Best airboat ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

First things first, if you are using gps, yes, you meet at a gas station but DO NOT LET THAT INTIMIDATE YOU!!!!! This is because they move their location based on water levels and least enivirinmental impact. We went on an airboat ride with a different company a few years ago which doesn't even compare to airboat in Everglades. We did some research this time around and airboat in Everglades had excellent reviews.....which they lived up to! The staff was very friendly and our captain willy was very knowledgable. He was young, energetic, enthusiastic and loved the everglades. he knew the land, showed us some birds that he trained and of course saw lots of gators. This place is very non-commercialized which makes it feel authentic and you see the creatures in their natural habitat. It is defiantly worth the money and we would use them again!!!

Ps.. Even the stars know where to go...the week before we went, Halle berry used them !

“Great fun in the Everglades”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had an amazing time on our 90-minute private tour. Not only was it an incredibly beautiful area that we covered but the ride was exciting while at the same time we felt immersed in the habitat. We traveled fast across the grassy swamp areas and slowly through the many “canals” that support the indigenous wildlife. Our guide, Willie, was extremely knowledgeable and also a lot of fun. He made a great effort to provide us with the best experience we could possibly have; he was not only entertaining but charming as well. (The support staff was very friendly and accommodating too.) We saw lots and lots of alligators, huge and small, beautiful birds (had never really been a huge fan of our winged friends before) and incredible flowers – An awesome and humbling experience.

“Will remember forever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

We went on this once in a lifetime trip in April 2013. My husband and I with our 2 boys, 11 and 9, visited Orlando with its various parks! We felt it was important that our children also experienced some of what 'real' Florida has to offer, and so went on a few road trips!! This adventure was by far their favourite (and ours)! The customer service before the day and afterwards (confusion with payment) was efficient and friendly. The airboat ride was exciting, interesting and fun! We saw lots of alligators up close and so much more! The captain was very knowledgeable and gave us a real taste of a very different life from the uk and it was just as thrilling as any roller coaster! I can not recommend this enough!

“A Blast in the Everglades!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We took our son and grandson on this airboat tour in the Everglades. It definitely lives up to all the rave reviews it gets. Captain Willie was our guide and his knowledge and enthusiasm made a fantastic day even better. He went out of his way to provide information on the Everglade's wildlife, fauna and history. He took us to places where we were literally parked among alligators on both sides of the boat. If you are planning to take an airboat tour, this is the place to go!!! You definitely will not be disappointed!!! We have friends coming to visit from England in August and this tour is on top of the list for us to do when they get here.
