    Outstanding service. Beautiful paddling with some interesting ecological info shared. We saw multiple manatees, gators, and various birds.

    Had a fantastic day out .. well worth the money !!! Booked this direct and Roxy was very helpful getting us booked in. Snorkelling with the manatees was a bucket list thing … and just a wonderful experience !! Totally humbling to be so close to these amazing creatures !! Amanda and the captain ?? Chase ?? Did their best to get us to see as many manatees as possible in their natural environment . Had lunch which is part of the package .. very tasty !!! Next was a trip to the Homosassa wildlife park .. spent over an hour here .. walking round seen wildlife that had been injured / or could not go back to their natural habitat .. beautiful creatures all of them ….. Finally we went on an air boat ride at Wild Bills airport tours .. what a great end to this fantastic day !! Our captain ensured we seen alligators .. and even tiny baby ones too !! Thanks to everyone involved … and want to give a massive shout out to our tour guide Ricky .. who provided us with lots of useful information… and seems very passionate about what he does .. he clearly loves Wildlife !! A must do tour … can highly recommend

    It was a wonderful experience and the Guide had life jackets, glowing wrestels, anti-bug spray and water Protection for handys, carkeys for us.
    Very well organized. Nice Guide with tons of informations and interesting stories. He even makes photos for you.
    And of course an unbelievabel glowing in the water - so intensive and magical - you will not want to miss this.
    I will give it 10 from 10.
    Thanks to this experience.

    Fantastic trip! Greg was an excellent guide, with great knowledge around the safari and the rest of Wild Florida. The airboating was brilliant fun, getting to see lots of wildlife and a bit of speed

    Greg was our driver/tour guide to get us to Swim w/the manatees and Homassas Park - he is amazing! Greg is very personable and knowledgeable about the area, provided great ideas of things to do on the rest of our vacation. Cannot forget his magic tricks - totally astounding! And who can forget his jokes?🤣. We had to Google our jokes but not him - one after the other without missing a beat! He made this such a memorable trip!!

    We had a great time on this tour. Our guide, Ismaiel, was wonderful. He was prompt and went above and beyond for us. The tour itself leaves more than enough time to explore Wild Florida without feeling rushed. It is also good value for money. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for an excursion to the Everglades from Orlando.

    We had an amazing time. The beach was beautiful and the dolphin boat ride was fun - saw lots of dolphins. Lunch at Crabbys was delicious. It was a nice change of pace compared to park days while visiting Orlando. Would definitely recommend it.

    Great trip! Capt Mike was a great tour guide. Capt Mike took us to a wonderful spot where we each had a fish on the first 7 minutes. The action kept up lretty much the whole time. Capt Mike is safe and the trip was on an amazing bassboat. This guide is a 10/10

    We booked the tour through FloridaTX and called the local number once in the resort. The time and place of the pickup were confirmed, in our case 0735 at the ballroom entrance of Loews Royal Palace hotel.

    At around 0730, a Gray Line employee approached us (they were picking up a different tour) to tell us that our coach was on route.

    At 0734, the coach arrived and we were greeted by an energetic Angelina.

    There were other stops on the way to pick up other parties and the journey to KSC took about an hour or so through Orlando traffic.

    Angelina explained her recommended route around KSC to avoid school trips, cruise ship excursions etc.

    On arrival, Angelina got us in line and went to help a member of our party sort out an issue with their ticket.

    Whilst doing this, she was everywhere, sorting out other visitors in to different queues (they were not Gray Line customers) as KSC staff are absent.

    7 on the coach were off to the airboat ride and had to be back by 2-45, the remainder at 4-45. This was important to avoid some of the traffic.

    We followed Angelina’s route, working clockwise around and stopping for food at the main entrance. Then on the transport to Apollo . We missed out on the Astronauts talk and were on the coach to the airboat at 2-45.

    The airboat ride seemed longer than 39 minutes, stopping to hear about local wildlife and seeing 4-5 alligators close to.

    All very safe.

    Back on the coach! Back to KSC!

    Most of the rest of the party were back on the coach before 4-45 but there was a delay waiting for one person. We set off at 5-00 heading back to Orlando.

    A 12hr day with much thanks To Gray Line and Angelina, not forgetting Earl the driver.
