We recently spent a few days in Everglades City and wanted to take a look at Big Cypress Preserve because it is so huge and unlike anything we are used to. The swamp buggy we were taken in fitted 5 adults (including the driver) and 2 children very comfortably. We had a canopy over the four of us that were in the back, which was very welcome as it was very hot. Cool drinks were provided, which we all thought was very thoughtful. Chris, our driver and guide began by telling us what trees we would be able to see and what animals we needed to look out for. Chris had a lovely way with us all he retold lots of anecdotes and gave a lot of the background story to this wonderful area. We were able to get off the swamp buggy to see plants, trees and animals closer and just to get a better feel of the place. Chris has extensive knowledge of this environment and some of the things it has to offer. Even after many years of exploring this vast area Chris is still discovering new things and relishes the oppurtunity to go into the preserve and spread that knowledge to other people, he's a really enthusiastic man and we smiled the whole time we were out in the preserve with him, it was a truly amazing way to spend fours hours. Just a warning, it was very bumpy and whilst our children loved it not everyone's children will.
