Overall, our trip was very good and lots of fun. Our guide, Mark, was very personable and incredibly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna we were able to see on our trip. We highly recommend Mark and this company.

A great tour by a great guide from a great company
Jun 2021 • Family
I booked a full-day Everglades tour for my family in 2021, and it was an excellent decision. Pete was very friendly and easy to book with over the phone. He was also flexible until we decided which hotel we were going to book.
Our guide, Rhett, was incredibly knowledgeable throughout the tour. He pointed out the wildlife to us during the drives, the hike, and the airboat road. He also was very knowledgeable about the ecological history of the Everglades as well as the ecosystems it contains.
Our airboat captain, Fred, was a skilled driver who navigated us through some incredible parts of the swamp that we saw. We saw a large diversity of birds, along with lots of gators!
Our cruise captain, Gary, was also very skilled with his boat. We got a sense of the immense size of the 10,000 Islands along with the mangroves and birds in the area. Gary even got some dolphins to come near the boat and show us some tricks!
The whole experience was worth every dollar, and the easy pick-up and drop-off made the Everglades far more accessible than it otherwise would have been.

Best tour Ever!
Great tour! Enjoyed our van driver Zak, he was very knowledgeable and kept us informed along the way. Airboat tour was fun and enjoyable, saw lots of wildlife. Lunch was excellent they had a lot of choices to pic from had fish it was delicious! Zak was good at keeping us informed about the wildlife and various information about Florida in general which made the time go by driving to each location. The boat tour through the mangroves in Gulf was also enjoyable and this driver really knew the history and places to find animals, saw manatees and dolphins.
This tour was well forth the money!,! Would definitely do it again!

Best Thing We Did on Our Trip to Florida
May 2021
We had a great time on the Western Everglades Adventure Tour. Between the guided nature walk and the fan boat ride, we saw a ton of interesting birds. If you want to see an alligator then this is the tour for you. We saw dozens of alligators on the fan boat ride. The kids in our tour group counted 76 by the end of the fan boat ride, but i am sure we saw more than that. The reptile show after the fan boat ride was also a lot of fun. Getting to hold some of the reptiles was an awesome experience.

Pete was an excellent tour guide. He was great with the kids in our tour group and he made a point of remembering the names of everyone in the group so he could address us directly when we had questions. He also has a background in wildlife biology so he really knows his stuff. His knowledge of the local flora and fauna was impressive. If you are going to be visiting Fort Myers or Naples, do yourself a favor and go on the Western Everglades Adventure Tour.

Hi Connie, I appreciate the feedback and it gave me an opportunity to review what is listed on the website and what we do (and did that day). It's unfortunate that our tour did not live up to your expectations but I can say with confidence that we did the airboat tour, the wildlife drive in Big Cypress National Preserve, the nature walk in Fakahatchee Strand State Park and the mangrove wilderness boat tour in Everglades National Park. Florida's State Parks are the best in the United States and I don't know anyone who considers the National Park or Preserve run down. It's certainly subjective but I take great pride in the places we visit on our tour. I'm glad you enjoyed the van ride and again thank you for the feedback.

Perfect Day!
May 2021
Great itinerary, excellent and knowledgeable guides; just a perfect way to spend a day in the Everglades. Air boat ride was spectacular with dozens of gators on display in their natural environment. Saw dozens of bird species -- even confronted a mother black bear and her two cubs on a walk on Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk! Like I said, a perfect day. Thanks, Everglades Day Safari!

Great tour
My family and I had a great time on this tour. Pete is very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour started with an easy walk to the marsh. Then we took an airboat ride with Pete and Captain Kenny. This was a blast. We saw a lot of alligators and different species of birds. The tour concludes with an interactive reptile show. We definitely recommend this tour.
