The tour was excellent. Our guide Marc was brilliant, knew a lot was was funny as well. Would recommend it to anyone. It was a pity though that Viators blurb was 10 years out of date and that the Indian village and market has not been available for years.
Emily, our guide was adorable and very knowledgeable! We had a great day with her. We saw a lot of wildlife and learned so much about them as well as the vegetation. The airboat ride was awesome, the nature walks lovely and the boat ride was a highlight with dolphins playing in the wake of our boat. The pick up was easy and on time actually early which we liked and the drop off easy too. Our only comments would be that the air conditioning vents in the van were broken, so getting air flow to us in the back required us the be creative with our hats. All in all a great value for a great day!!
Excellent and well organised excursion. Our driver/tour guide exceptional..
The best tour. Great driver very skilled with traffic. Her knowledge of the glades was out standing. The air boat guide was fun and new where to find gators . they do need to provide some steps with handrail for boarding and de boating for elders.
It was great. The guide was excellent. The food was good too. I learned a lot. A day well spent.

This all day tour is worth every penny. Erin picked us up at the hotel right on time! The van was new, clean, comfortable, safe and Erin is an excellent driver. She is knowledgeable about the wildlife and history of the Everglades and surrounding areas. She is also known to slyly crack a joke or two - watch for them!
The airboat ride was breathtaking and beautiful, our guide was very knowledgeable about the eco-system and conveyed the information in an easy manner, she had a real love for the Everglades and it showed. Of course we saw Gators!
We then went on to a small hike via a boardwalk into the Glades with Erin, who pointed out interesting features and facts regarding the Fauna and Flora. This is an easy hike.
Next stop was lunch at the Oyster Bar. Food was Pre ordered Erin passed around a menu in the van-we made our selection and she called it in We were seated immediately on arrival and our food was ready hot and delicious Blackened Grouper Sandwich - Yum. After lunch, make sure to ask Erin to play her Ukulele and sing - she has a great voice!
Next - On to the mangroves in a flat bottom boat. Our boat captain was awesome, he grew up around the Mangroves and was very familiar with the history and knew exactly where to take us to see the wildlife and plus he gave a few speed thrills upon our request and we got a little island time.
Throughout the day we saw many Gators of varying sizes from baby to HUGE! We also saw Osprey in action and on their nests, Wood Storks, Anhingas, Egrets, Blue and Grey Herons, Eagles, Ibis, not to mention the forests of Cyprus trees and the Mangroves.
Tips were included for the restaurant, but not for the van driver, airboat captain or flat bottomed boat captain. These people did an amazing job- Show Some Love!
This was an excellent day trip and so much to see. Alex, the tour guide, had so much knowledge to share, and delivered it with passion in an amiable and relaxed manner so that it never became a lecture or him showing off. The large number of dolphins in the Ten Thousand Islands area was a massive bonus, a lovely lasting memory to round off a great day. The only minor moan is that the lunch was rather ordinary, just fried fast food really.
Alex was our guide - he was GREAT! Full of knowledge on numerous areas. Answered all of our questions and was very friendly. We have been on many vacations and excursions and this is one of the best. Price was well worth every penny, especially since a very nice lunch was included and the fact we were picked up/dropped off right in front of our hotel. A full day of adventure. Don't miss this one if you have a full day to devote to an excursion.
Our guide was passionate, knowleadgeable and made sure we would remember this outing as a fun experience. We saw alligators, bald eagles, manatees, turtles.
It was personal, informative, and overall enjoyable. We saw and learned about lots of plants, birds, and animals.
Alex was awesome. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about the everglades. Best tour in Fort Lauderdale. I recommend this to everyone.
We spent a wonderful day with Peter learning and identifying what makes the Everglades so special. Peter was very knowledgeable and worked hard to ensure our experience was memorable. We would highly recommend taking this tour.
It was exciting and interesting. Our guide was most knowledgeable about the environment and explained all the peculiarities of the everglades.
This day tour turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences of our recent holiday to the USA. We were picked up right on time by Alex and when we got delayed by traffic, he called the other members of our tour group to let them know.
After our small group had all been picked up and were comfortably seated in the tour vehicle, Alex gave us all a run down of what we could expect from our day, what his credentials were, and encouraged us to ask any questions we might have. Apart from the absolutely marvellous activities and scenery that we saw and experienced, the range of information that Alex gave us throughout the day was just brilliant and we learned so much.
I could not recommend this tour highly enough for anyone who is interested in the environment, the amazing things that are being done in this part of the world and to see and experience the Everglades.
Alex was an excellent guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, personable, and courteous. The itinerary was excellent, I really felt like I saw everything that southern Florida had to offer. Great experience underscored by a great host. Definitely something I will highly recommend to friends and family.
It was fantastic, Alex is so knowledgeable and engaging. It was an experience I will never forget!
Our guide Pete was great - nice guy, very knowledgeable and hospitable! Interesting and well organized trip to the Everglades.
Great tour. Very professionally run. Alex our guide was very well educated in all areas of our trip, he made the whole experience one to remember. The stop for lunch was also very good. Thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone going to Florida.
Awesome trip. Our guide was prompt, knowledgeable and personable. We learned alot about the Everglades, it's biology and ecology. The air boat was a blast. Lots of gators and birds. Lunch was tasty. The big cypress walk was more than expected. We saw Dolphins, many birds and manatees on the boat ride!!
