This was the highlight of our trip. John really wanted us to have fun and see everything Miami has to offer. It was cool to be shown around by someone from the city and he couldn't have done more for us. He promised us alligators,...More

Excellent tour of Miami. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Made sure everyone in our group (ages 30 - 70) had a great time. Highly recommended.

Went with John around historic parts of Miami and loved it! He obviously knows a lot about Miami and the history of it. We saw many different parts we wanted to see while getting to be arm-length to manatees we could photograph

John took us on an amazing tour of Miami and knew all the hidden spots where you can spot manatees. John is very well informed and clearly passionate about what he does. Seeing the manatees with my Mum early on a Friday morning was an...More

You and mum were great guests. With the colder weather, we have even more manatees than when you were here, with all those spots having lots of them.

Arranged with John a month or more before our visit of four people. John rightly advised early pickup but some in our party were jet lagged so he scheduled a slightly later boat ride where we enjoyed dolphins, white pelicans, eagles, mangrove islands, and the...More

Your were a great group, which makes my job easy and enjoyable. It helped that you were staying at the Epic hotel surrounded by all that archeology in the middle of skyscrapers, and all those manateesl. Thanks for listing the variety of wildlife we saw!...More

Our fabulous 7 hour tour ended up being more like 10 hours because of the timing of the boat ride into the Gulf islands on the edge of the Everglades, something that John arranges with a local company. First, let me say that there is...More
