The tour was fascinating: we got exactly what we expected: Don the guide is really a professional in Mangroves and told us lots of interesting things about ecosystem of Everglades. It'd be a failure not to participate on this tour.

We had a fantastic time on our tour and managed to see a variety of the wildlife that can be found in the Mangrove forests of the Everglades - including a number of different birds and 4 alligators. The tranquillity of the mangroves and the feeling of truly being 'at one with nature' was wonderful. Our guide (Ron) was extremely informative and helpful.
