We covered a lot of territory in nine hours. It was a great overview. The shortcoming is that since it really three tours in one there is no continuity from one phase to the next. It would be helpful, given only a half hour between the water taxi and the bus to the Everglades, to be told what the lunch options were at Bayside. After rushing through lunch, the bus was then late, which was annoying. The bus driver to the Everglades was not a guide at all (yet still requested a tip). It would add to the value of the trip if he could have spoken about the area.
