Absolutely great tour of the Everglades. Our tour guide Jason was extremely knowledgeable and informative. The tour was an all inclusive experience that took us from Fort Lauderdale all the way to the gulf and back. It included an air boat excursion through a beautiful part of the Everglades, an easy hike through a cypress swamp, a drive through Aligator Alley, lunch at a quaint local Restaraunt and a boat ride through Everglades National Park. If you only have a day to experience the Everglades, this is the tour to take. Well worth it!
This is an encounter that's been on our bucket list for years and it was well worth the wait. The Airboat Adventure was great. We had a guide who was extremely knowledgeable and who was able to maneuver the airboat very close to the alligators so we were able to get good pictures. It was a very clear and sunny day so we did see a very large number of alligators.
After the airboat adventure, we ventured through the animal/reptile exhibits which was interesting and informative.
Great value for the price of the excursion but we've come to expect that from Viator. We've utilized their services in numerous countries.

Good value. I liked it but would have liked a little less structured and more adventurist trip. for example the air boat could have gone deeper in and off the beaten path. The van driver Norman was very informative and had a sharp eye for sightings, but left little opportunity or welcome for questions.
Everything was organized so well, and our van driver was a wealth of knowledge.
Great Day! Jason was very informative guide, I would highly recommend this tour.
We had an excellent airboat ride with Captain Debbie. Three alligators made appearances. The everglades have their own kind of beauty. Seeing the large cats was great. We really recommend this as an wonderful,unique and fun way to experience South Florida!
Noah was outstanding as an educator and tour guide. Very accommodating and helpful. We loved the airboat ride! It was great to have the bird sighting list to check off as we went. The birds were amazing! We would have liked to seen more of the Cypress trees. The boat ride to see the Mangroves and Dolphins finished it off beautifully. Overall outstanding, got a lot done in one day and loved the small tour format.
What a fantastic experience! Our tour guide/boat operator had considerable professional background of the area, Everglades and alligators. He took us deep into the everglades where we saw a total of 14 alligators and many species of local birds. Also saw a "squatter" home that is built in total isolation and is occupied. Afterwards we visited the small zoo and saw close-up Burmese Pythons, Florida Panthers, turtles, alligators and more. Very well done and worth the time and money.
Positively fantastic ... worth every last dime of the cost!!!! Norman, our tour guide, was fabulous, so knowledgeable plus personable to boot. Seeing the Everglades, Cypress Preserve, the pontoon boot, the manatees, alligators, dolphins, white pelicans .... and the different species of birds. Couldn't have asked for anything more ..... beautiful. And the icing on the cake was Norman, our tour guide ... he was great. I would highly recommend this Everglades Adventure Day Trip to anyone and everybody - for sure!
Terrific Guide, very interesting tour.
Fabulous tour! Deborah, our guide, was awesome. So knowledgeable about the everglades, environment, living species. She was so enthusiastic and clearly loves what she is doing. Good sense of humor too! On the private boat you get to go in areas where the bigger boats can't go, which was really cool. Loved this experience and would highly recommend!
Our trip was wonderful. As a Florida native I took my two friends from California on the tour. I thought I knew all about the Everglades until I met our tour guide. He was so informative and passionate about his love of the Everglades. By the end of our tour all of us were in love with the beautiful National Park in my back yard. We had great weather. The air boat ride took us to to areas I never dreamed I would see, and our board walk exposed the quiet, natural beauty of the park. Yes it was expensive, but it was worth every penny. I would recommend this tour to any Floridian and to any visitor to South Florida. And hopefully you will be lucky enough to have our guide. His passion and love of the park made the trip even more memorable. What a day! We are still talking about it.
The duration of the tour and the fact that you have your private boat makes this an excellent tour !
Even though it was probably the coldest and rainiest day of the month we had a blast. Our guide was full of information about the Everglades. We saw crockadiles, lots of birds, drove to a boat in the Gulf of Mexico, saw lot's of wildlife on the boat and the water boat was a blast.
I found everything to be well organized and we were picked up right on time.
If you want to see the Everglades this all day trip gives you a great insight into the wildlife, plants and culture of the area.
If it looks like it might rain or is cloudy, take warm jackets and long pants...they provide the ponchos.
We were disappointed with this tour. We saw one alligator in the Ist few minutes then off to see the drivers house which seemed to be more important the looking for wildlife. We did see some birds in passing but never slowed to get a good look.
When we got back went round the zoo area but found it to br run down with a lot of empty pens. All in all disappointing and not worth the extra cost of a private tour.
