My wife and I very much enjoyed the day tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We saw lots of animals during the day. Having the three components (really 4) worked to see a large variety of flora and animals. I had never seen manatees in the wild so that was a bonus.

This was a wonderful outing with my 12 year old son. The guide was knowledgeable and nice, the activities (walking tour, boat ride to see manatees, dolphins, sea birds, air boat tour and aligator sightings) we fun and varied and lunch was good. We saw plenty of wild life, vegetation and many interesting sightings, including a fun Smallwood museum.

We had a wonderful trip through the Everglades with Doug, who was a knowledgeable and informative guide. The air-boat ride was the most fantastic part, but we enjoyed everything we did that day.

Definitely recommend. Erin was very personable and gifted at spotting birds, turtles, gators, etc., even while driving. I'm very sensitive to loud noise; came prepared for airboat ride: silicone putty earplugs and passive ear muffs; that ride was my favorite part of tour! Would have enjoyed more time for lunch, so I could have eaten my whole salad. Still savoring... More

We did this safari a couple years ago and we really enjoyed the day. There was a slight difference this time on the type of boat ride to the Gulf of Mexico, but it was still a very educational and enjoyable day. Love the airboat ride. If you love nature and boat rides, this safari is for you.

We enjoyed our tour of the Everglades. Marc was a funny, informed, kind tour guide. The day was varied, with two boat rides, a short hike and the drive through the park. And lunch! Highly recommend this tour. A knowledgeable guide is worth the price.

We enjoyed our adventure, saw baby alligators, and large ones, turtles, Dolphins, Manapee's and many different types of birds. Or tour guide was very knowledgeable. The food at the Oyster House was delicious and good size portions. The walking tour was a bit buggy fortunately our guide had repellant (great idea). We felt the wilderness part of the tour was...

Thank you for nice review. It sounds like you saw an abundance of wildlife and had a great time. March has been a bit buggy on one short section of our nature walk portion of our tour but thankfully 2-3 good slaps and the mosquitoes are taken care of. There are times and places in the Everglades (town of Flamingo!)... More

Our family ages 5-68 all had great day. Pete, our guide was knowledgable and attentive. It was mid March and the temperature was a little below normal and the boat rides were a little chilly. Bring plenty of layers. Overall worth the money and time.

Thank you for the nice words Corley! We did brave the chilly morning temperatures which warmed up to a nice 78 degree day by the afternoon. Your family was so enjoyable to spend the day with and the kids asked great questions and showed tremendous curiosity for the natural world. More
