If you only have one day to experience the Everglades, then this this tour is for you. You are picked up in Ft. Myers and driven to various activities: a nature walk, boat tour, airboat tour, and nature drive. These are all in different places and I'm sure you drive about a 100 miles total during the day, but we found each activity both highly enjoyable and educational. It is actually tough to choose which was our favorite activity. We had dolphins swimming alongside the boat, and at each spot we saw tons of flora and fauna. Our guide Randi was knowledgeable, patient, and unflaggingly enthusiastic. Our 12 year old son had a great time. Not cheap but a great value. I highly recommend it.

Just finished my third safari. Always a great way to show visiting family the real Florida. Lots of up close and personal wildlife encounters. Tour guides were knowledgeable and courteous. Just an overall splendid way to spend a day.

Without a doubt, the best tour we've ever taken!!! Our tour guide, Adam was OUTSTANDING!!! Great knowledge on all things Everglades; wildlife, plants life, environment, eco-system, history. Very personable with a great sense of humor as well. His trained eye spotted many animals that we would never have seen on our own. His running commentary and humor kept us entertained and interested all day - never a dull moment. The tour was well organized with a nature walk, pontoon boat ride, lunch, wildlife drive and airboat ride. While there is some time spent driving from place to place in the comfortable van, Adam's knack at keeping everyone engaged and interested, made the time pass quickly. You can tell he is passionate about the Everglades and its inhabitants. We stopped frequently for photo ops, saw the world's smallest working post office, and saw countless birds, alligators, turtles, and even some deer. While waiting for our airboat ride, we were entertained by numerous parrots, snakes, alligators, iquana's, and turtles that are kept on the property. This trip is not to be missed. Be sure to ask for Adam, he was terrific!!! Highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time. The Everglades are a fascinating complex ecosystem. The all-day tour gave us a full picture of the Everglades from every aspect. Our 11 year-old daughter loved it too!

Drive to one easy location, meet your guide, climb into the van, and you're off on an everglades adventure that includes a walk through a cypress swamp, a drive to view wildlife, a pontoon boat ride among mangrove islands, and an airboat ride through the sawgrass. Our guide Randi was full of information and extremely knowledgeable. But best of all... Randi was so much FUN! We are Floridians and naturalists ourselves, but we learned many new things about the area and the everglades. This is a small group and very personal tour.
