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.

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.More

We boarded our bus and the adventure again. Pete told us all about the area we were driving in. Trees, flowers etc. The airboat ride was great. A lot of bird and animals. Great Safari.

Bob was fablous and full of knowledge. Our airboat operator (Gary) was very friendly and full of knowledge as well. We saw a lot of birds and gators and loved the scenery.

We're glad we coaxed Captain Bob out of retirement. Captain Bob's Excellent Adventure isn't the same without him and we're glad you enjoyed it.

Great way to cover all the Everglades has to offer. Wildlife, nature and beauty. Comfortable van. Most delicious grouper sandwich ever at the lunch stop!

Is the nature walk possible with use of a transport chair? Thank you.

Answer
Response from Pete C | Property representative |
Unfortunately our tour vans do not have room for transport chairs. The nature walks take place on crushed shell trails and board walks.
