2-Day Miami & Everglades Getaway

This was in Orlando section adding here as well.

On attraction tickets direct for £110 there is transport, airboat ride, handling show, and a hotel which seems like really good value as usually a hotel for a night costs this on its own.

We are having an day and night there anyway but now we have seen this we think it is a good deal.

Anyone done this?

Sorry have not done this specifc deal. Whether it is a good deal or not depends on several factors, such as:

(1) Is that price per person, and how many in your party?

(2) Are you able to rent a car and drive yourself?

(3) Where are they putting you up overnight?

If there are two of you and that is per person, it works out to about $300, for which you should be able to do better by renting a car and arranging a hotel yourself, when you consider that you will have added flexibility of the car and where to stay and visit. However, if you are not able/willing to drive or just want someone else to arrange details then it may be OK (not knowing what attractions are included in the deal).

It is per person, will be two of us, we have a car rented but thought it'd save the hassle of leaving the car parked all day (imagine that would cost an arm and a leg).

This is the description on the site:

On day one, head to world famous Everglades and hop aboard an airboat for a thrilling ride through the ‘River of Grass’. You will reach speeds of 30 miles per hour and view alligators, turtles and wetland birds in their natural habitat. Afterwards, get a closer view of the local wildlife at an Alligator and Snake handling show where you get the chance to learn, hold, feel, and get your pictures taken with these amazing animals. From there head to Miami’s Bayside shopping area for some retail therapy before arriving at your South Beach Hotel, located in the heart of the Art Deco area, just seconds away from restaurants, shops, museums, night clubs and the beach itself. Once you check into your hotel, you have the rest of the day and evening free to explore the area at leisure.

On day two you are free to continue exploring Miami or simply relax and soak up the sun on South Beach. The excursion leaves Miami at around 4.00pm; returning to Orlando at around 8.00pm.

Operates: Wednesdays

Departure Time: 7.00am. Pick-ups start up to 60 minutes before the scheduled departure time.

Duration: 2 Days/1 Night.

Includes: Roundtrip transportation from Orlando; Airboat ride in the Everglades; Visit to a Snake and Alligator Handling Show; Visit to Miami’s Bayside Shopping area; Overnight accommodation in South Beach at the Catalina Hotel (or similar), just seconds from the bars, shops, restaurants and the beach itself and free time to explore Miami.

Transfer Time: 4 hours each way
