“Great treat”

Singing River Tours
Ranked #4 of 13 Tours in Dunnellon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2013

John is very informative and is interested in the environment. He gives a lot of great information and is a real gentleman. He has a good sense of humor and the songs he sings are funny and we enjoyed the whole ride. We ate at the Blue Gator after and it made for a nice day. I had a friend for out of town and she enjoyed it.

I learned so much about the swamp and the 2 rivers here along with facts about wildlife and the history of Dunnellon and its rivers. We saw gators, turtles and birds and learned about the trees and grasses. The folk style singing was great and very local lyrics along with the guitar. Would suit young and old alike and Jon has a great sense of humour!

I have been lucky enought to travel to a huge amount of countries around the world and have taken many boat trips - but this is my favourite.

I've done this trip with Captain Jon twice now and he makes it great by telling the history of the place with feeling and informing his guests so well on the ecology.

The break around two thirds of the way throught the trip is great as Jon is a superb guitar player and sings about Florida with passion and humour.

In my view he could charge more for this great trip as you won't just be informed and enetertined on two beatuful rivers - but you'll have great photo opportunities too.
