Our personal airboat tour was OUTSTANDING! This Viator adventure was the only one I could find which gave us a full hour on the water, and time 'rushed' by!
We saw many alligators and birds of prey, the homes on the water were fascinating also.
Would do this trip again in a heartbeat!
Great tour guide, good lunch and a fun day.
We were picked up by Norman who proved a very interesting, informative and amusing guide...thank you very much.
Great trip which we can highly recommend the wonderful air boat drive, with alligators and then good lunch and amazing trip in the National mangrove park where we were entertained by dolphins and osprey.
Great trip with a knowledgable captain (Captain Al)! Smooth and relaxing airboat ride through the Everglades. We were lucky enough to see 3 gators! Recreation park was very nice, although some of the gators looked sad in their enclosures. Overall great value and friendly staff. Would do again!
This was an exciting tour for 4 family members. Our guide was very knowledgable, and in fact, lived in a house in the Glades. Albeit more expensive than the group tour, it gave us more insight into the glades and extra time touring. And Viator saved us extra $$ from the posted rates at the tour boat facility.
We drove down to the Everglades from Clearwater on our way to Miami. When we arrived we were booed on one of the airboats and as we were seated and about to go for the ride, the rain came down! We all got off the boat and sheltered and waited for the rain to stop. This shower lasted an hour! We finally got aboard again and went t look for alligators, Disappointingly we only saw 2. On in the distance and we di get to se the other close up. Once the engine was shut down, the alligator came up close to the boat. We were expecting to see more alligators.
It was good value for money though. There were a few animals and alligators to look at after the boat ride but not enough to keep you there for more than 2hours altogether
Well organized, exiting tour
This is tour far exceeded my expectations. It was informative, fun, and good value for the price. I strongly encourage folks to do this tour.
I was very impressed with the airboat ride! It was my first and it was truly exhilarating!
Took this tour with my 12 years old daughter. Everything in the tour from start to finish was just perfect. Jason (our guide), was extremely well prepared and available to answer any questions we may have left after his extensive commentary.
One of the best tours I have ever been on and well worth the money.
It was great - very enjoyable and interesting. Shame we didn't see any manates, but that's not a criticism; it wasn't the right time of year. Worth bearing in mind if you're hoping to see manates. Please tell the manager to give our tour leader a pony! (a private joke, I gather)
The airboat ride was stimulating. I expected to see more besides alligators. We enjoyed the animals afterwards and got to hold a small gator.
This was a nice tour, private, price a little bit expensive but let's say ok.
For all of our wonderful experiences and adventures with and through VIATOR over many years, this tour was, unfortunately and entire waste of time, energy and money. After driving to the everglades the day before leaving on a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale, we had high hopes of seeing magnificent wildlife roaming free, having an educational and informative guided tour and hungering for a second visit. Frankly, the junge cruise at DisneyWorld was 100% better. Only saw ONE alligator in the wild on our trip through the everglades. And, a few birds. The time and money was a waste and skip this one. (Not Viator's fault, but could not, in good recommend this to a discriminating traveller). The adjacent zoo was interesting with wildlife in captivity, but the airboat adventure was an airboat disaster!
I went to Miami when I was returning from South America to NY just to do this tour. It was the only tour that gave a comprehensive guide to the Everglades region. Norman our guide was wonderful. He was wonderful.. He knew so much about the region and stopped at many places to enhance our opportunities to see the wildlife. We saw about 30 alligators in the wild. The day included various ctivities and I came away very satisfied. I live in Perth, and this opportunity met all my expecttions and was something I could not have done on my oiwn.
