    If you want a taste of the Everglades this is the trip for you. We were picked up at our hotel at 7:30 in the morning and dropped off at 5:30pm. The host apologized that it was a full tour (we had 13 in our party... it was not crowded). We went on two walking tours, neither

    After a week long cruise in the Carribean we extended our holiday from England by two days to see the Everglades. The full day trip we chose did not disappoint; it was very enjoyable and informative. We will recommend it to our friends. Many thanks Julio.

    After the airboat ride, I thought I could go home happy - but the day just got better and better. Julio was a great guide, very knowledgeable and helpful. We saw lots of wildlife, including gators, dolphins and lots of birds (including a couple of life birds!), and thoroughly

    A most enjoyable and interesting day's outing. i must compliment Julio the guide. He made a small group of strangers interact with each other so well. Apart from that his knowledge which he imparted was really useful. Thanks Julio. Much appreciated.

    So, this was a decent tour - good activities, serene nature sights, interesting fellow travelers. Our tour guide, Mark, was a nice, friendly and earnest guide...but, perhaps a bit too earnest and trying too too hard to keep us informed. He wouldn’t stop talking from the point we

    What sets our tour apart from any other Everglades tour is that we have engaged, educated biologists and naturalists that conduct the tours. There are seven of us that conduct the tours and we are family. We love what we do and we have a lot to say about the natural and cultural history of the Everglades. Anyone can drive themselves to the Everglades but to have a guide informing you about what you are seeing and experiencing elevates the adventure. Marc is an amazing guide and one of the funniest people I know. To have a guide that is so well-versed in knowledge of the Everglades and to have the wit to amuse regarding any subject Everglades related is a true luxury. Bad jokes are not in his repertoire, but I suppose humor is subjective. I can accept criticism when it's warranted but I must admit this assessment seems pointendly hurtful. Thank you for your feedback. I stand by Marc.
