Everglades Tour

Hi all,

Myself and my partner are heading to Miami June 4th to 13th and are looking to book an everglades tour from South Beach, he wants it to include the airboat ride.

I have searched online to pre-book before we go, however 1. there are several companies offering this trip and 2. I don't know whether it is better to pre-book or book whilst we are there.

Can anybody help with regards to any reputable companies to book with and if it is worthwhile pre booking?

We've always done the Everglades on our own, will you have a car ?

No, the tour will have to include transport from South Beach, which from what I can gather seems quite common. If I do a google search, there seems to be numerous tours offering similar if not the same for varying prices.

I'm not familiar with any tour operator that provide transport from South Beach, do any of the ones you've found have reviews on TA ?

Viator´s website offers several tours with Transportation included, before booking you should ask which company will be Operating the tour, once you have the name you can search for reviews on TA.

For example,

Coach picks up in morning, and drops off after tour,

e.g.

viator.com/tours/…d662-5221EVERGLADES

halfpricetourtickets.com/miami-tours/…

I am not sure if I should just wait until I am in South Beach and then possibly book.

Lucy,

The weather is an important fact in order to enjoy this tour, so waiting until you are in Sobe it´s a good idea.

Thanks all for advice, I think I will wait to book, looking forward to heading to Sobe. However, first on the agenda, New York!
