“One of our best days in orlando”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We visited willy's after being highly recommended by our friends who visited the year previous, i phone and booked for the next day and spoke to Sharon who was very polite and gave excellent directions avoiding the sunpass, on arrival we were greeted by the staff who were brilliant in explaining what was gonna happen on our trip as it was our first airboat ride. When 'Captain Bud' introduced himself he was very polite and made us feel very welcome, we were fitted out with ear protectors and our little boys were fitted with lifejackets. The boat trip was absolutely awesome and something i wont forget for many years. Bud told us everything as we went road the lake stopping everytime he needed to show us or tell us something interesting, we saw lots of alligators of all different sizes and were even lucky enough to see 3 bald eagles nesting. The trip overall was excellent and me and my family loved it from start to finish. I will definetly visit again on our next Florida visit

“Excellent Exscursion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We went on my husband's birthday whilst visiting Florida. We had Capt. John and he couldn't have been more informative, humorous and made our trip great. The scenery, wildlife (birds and alligators) and the thrill of speeding through the swamps made this a memorable time. Capt. John even stepped into the water (very brave!) to take our photo on the airboat. Afterwards we held a baby alligator that didn't have it's mouth taped! Thanks for a good time.

“Excellent Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Went for an airboat ride today (24/05/13). Our guide was Captain Bud, very knowledgable, friendly and spotted a lot of interesting animals. The boat ride takes place on a very picturesque lake. Highly recommended. Well worth it and a nice break from Disney.

“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This airboat tour was everything I imagined! So much fun and informative. Our guide was awesome, taught us a lot and we got to see several alligators, including a mom with little babies. It was a nice day outside and they were so friendly. Loved holding the baby alligator when we got back. It was really fun, something I've always wanted to do. The price was very reasonable. Thanks Wild Willy's!
