Tour The Glades is the Only exclusively Private tour operator in the Everglades! Quality instead of quantity is our goal...which means our guests receive 100% of our attention. We can only do one (maybe two) trips per day which makes each one very special. This approach is better for the environment and hands down the best way to explore the Everglades....just you and your own personal guide.

We provide tours year round and all excursions are led by Native Naturalist Guides that provide EVERYTHING you'll need. Fresh seasonal fruit, cold bottled water and all the necessities are included. You won't need to purchase any additional items because we've thought of everything! We are priced the same as the group tour companies but only do Private Tours because Private is Best. You are our #1 priority.

Logan led us on a kayaking trip through the Everglades. He was entertaining and knowledgeable. We had a great time seeing portions of the Everglades that you can not access on your typical airboat ride. I highly recommend this trip if you are looking for something a bit more active to do and a little bit of adventure. Logan also... More

My husband and I had a great sunrise tour with our guide Logan. He told us a lot about birds and plants in this area. We have only seen a hidden alligator but it was still an impressive and stunning tour. We would like to go on this trip another time again (then sunset) The booking by mail was very... More

Took the TourTheEverglades Kayaking eco-tour in mid-November. Todd the eco-guide was fantastic. He had full knowledge of the ecosystem, the wildlife and the history of the Everglades. His tour was educational and provided one with a good understanding of the Everglades. For those of you that want to go one on one or perhaps with a couple of friends/family members... More

We purchased the combination offer, which includes a private kayak trip and a boat trip among the 10.000 islands. From the moment we booked with Lashaun untill the goodbye handshake with owner Todd, we sensed a great commitment and interest of all staff involved in the operation. Josh was a super guide on the kayaktrip. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Christine,... More

My wife and I (from UK) took a private guided tour with Todd, and it was one of the highlights of our vacation. (My wife thought it one of the coolest and most wonderful things she'd ever done).Todd was a wonderful and informative host & guide, - more like a friend than staff - and showed us stuff we'd never...

My wife and I did the full day kayak trip with Tod, out to one of the Calusa islands. Even though we did this enroute to a cruise vacation, this was our single favorite day of the whole trip. Tod was great! Personable, knowledgeable and just honestly a joy to hang out with. Parts of our path were partially blocked... More

This company offers both kayaking and motorised tours of the 'Thousand Islands' of the upper Everglades. We opted for a boat tour, which was 'driven' by Darrel. He is a descendent of one of the families that lived and worked in this area over several generations. His knowledge of the area was incredibly impressive and reflected his life-long knowledge of...

We wanted to experience the true everglades aside of standard tourism stuff. It was just us two and our Guide Josh. I guess he knows everything about the Glades and we learned a lot during the tour. We paddled through different stunning Mangrove tunnels and "open water". We saw a lot of different Birds, Spiders (not too close to us)... More

Tour of the Glades provided me and my 11 year old grandson with personal service, great guides and very memorable experiences. They really take an interest in listening to what you want to do and make it happen.
