I booked this trip prior to leaving home - I always wanted to do a trip on the Everglades. I did the 2 hour trip - I could have gone for longer I enjoyed it so much. Booking on line was easy and simple - all emails I sent were responded to in less than 24 hours.
There were quite a few alligators to be seen. However I thought the birds were amazing, so many different species and so many. The water lilies and lotus were beginning to flower, I could only imagine what it will be like in a few weeks. We had perfect weather which made it even better.
It is best hire a car and sat nav to guide you and drive to the airboat. There are quite a few other things to look at in the Kissimmee area, so you can make a day of the trip 1/2 hour south of Orlando.
Andy, the boat driver and owner knew all the hiding place for Alligators. His commentary was interesting and informative for the area.
One line- do the 2 hour trip if you can, hire a car and drive, get away from the theme parks and see the real Orlando.
