“Fun Day in the Everglades”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I had the good fortune to take this tour with "Jungle Pete", who was extremely knowledgeable about all the animals and birds that we were able to see, as well as the history of the area. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting the area and wants to experience the "Other Florida" that most tourists never get to see. With the combination of the walking tour, the boat ride and finally the air boat cruise, one gets to places that even few "Locals" have ever been. Pete's trained eye spots many well camouflaged "critters" along the way and he will even stop along the road to pick up a "Lubber Grasshopper" to give you a better look! I personally also enjoyed the excellent meal at the restaurant. The atmosphere and food was real "South Florida" and not some restaurant chain food that you could get back home. It was even more fun sharing the day with folks from The Netherlands and seeing their reactions to the Everglades.

“Everglades Delight!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We loved the day in the Everglades. Learned much more than you can ever see from your butt watching any show on TV.
Our guide (Joanne) was terrific, knowledgeable and had lots of stories to share.
Bubba took us into all corners of the lake and its marshy edges on our air boat ride.
We enjoyed our entire day

“Great day exploring the Everglades”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Fantastoc day with our guide Rick Cruz exploring the Everglades. Rick passion and knowledge on the plants and animals of the Everglades was inspiring. In particular he was brilliant with our two children answering every curved ball question that my 6 year old son threw at him. In particular we loved the airboat ride on Lake Trafford where we saw so many alligators. Overall a brilliant day.

“Excellent Tour”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was an great full day excursion with Joanne our very knowledgeable local guide. Although it is a long day, Joanne kept us entertaining with stories of the history and culture of the area. On the air boat tour we got an up close look at numerous alligators and too many birds to mention. On the motor boat tour we were escorted by frolicking dolphins. We saw more alligators and snakes on the walking tour and even saw manatee from the van. An excellent in depth introduction to the unique Florida Everglades. We would definitely do this tour again. Highly recommended!

“A Great Wildlife Day”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We realy enjoyed this full day tour with Rick Cruz. We saw at least 50 alligators, 30 different kinds of birds and manatees. Rick was knowledgeable and told endless stories (although some of his facts were a little suspicious). He had samples to share and gave us a great day. Lunch was ok. Don't get the salad bar (even on Taco Tuesday). Try to convince the group to ask Rick for a break on the way back (you will need a rest). Take sunscreen, tips for the boat captains and your camera! This trip is a MUST DO if you are interested in wildlife and / or birds.
