We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Adam was an excellent guide the lunch was delicious! Wish we could do it again
Adam's knowledge of local ecology, flora and fauna is outstanding . He helped the group see the Everglades in a more intellinegt way and keeping it fun the whole time.
Perhaps one of the best day excursion we have ever had.
We were very much impressed by the knowledge and passion of Adam and Andrew as well as the others.
Surely will look into doing some other trip with this organization.
every thing ran smoothly from the very beginning.

Adam, our guide was engaging and very knowledgeable. We had 6 adults and 2 boys (ages 8 and 7) on the day trip and we all had fun. The little boys liked the airboat ride the best. Lunch was handled very efficiently although Adam thought the restaurant was slow and it was very good. I'd give an unqualified recommendation to all aspects of the tour. Way to Go Adam!
My day was amazing. Randi was our guide and very knowledgeable of Florida history and everything we were did. A hike, boat ride (with lots of dolphins), a jetboat ride (loaded with alligators), jeep tour and lunch all included. I highly recommend using this company for an exciting day in the Everglades!
It was fantastic! We were only 4 in the group. We truly lucked out with the our guide named Adam. What a knowledgeable and fun guide. We learned so much! Lunch was also great, we had a private room but we were told, it is not always like that. All in all I would truly recommend it!
The tour was one of the best tours we've ever made. Adam was outstanding as an educator and tour guide. He was was extremely knowledgeable and we really felt that he loves what he is doing. We would heartily recommend this tour.
We took this trip with two other couples. We're all birders and nature enthusiasts. What we experienced all day long was nothing short of a thrill and a "rush." The airboat trip itself was worth the price of admission. We saw or heard over 50 species of birds on this trip. And, best of all, we had Adam (whom we had asked for) as our day-long driver, guide, and companion. He was passionate, articulate, and quite the teacher! No one else we'd rather do the trip, if we were to do it again. Thanks, Viator!
This tour was one of the highlights of our visit to South Florida. Our guide, Pete, was very personable and clearly an expert on the flora, fauna and history of the area. The tour was exactly as described. We truly got our money's worth and will remember this experience for years to come.
What a wonderful day! Our tour guide, Adam, was exceptional and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. He was so knowledgeable and just filled us with information. A special thanks to him for making a great day even better. Saw lots of birds, alligators and turtles! Wonderful! Pat and Jo
This was a fabulous tour. We learned so much. We saw lots of wildlife. The airboat ride was fantastic. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. This is one of the best tours we have been on.
This tour was fantastic! Our guide Adam was funny and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and ecosystems. We saw lots of birds and animals on our hike and the boat tours. We got to hold a baby alligator and got up close to a very large male alligator at the air boat facility! There were 8 of us on the tour and everyone had a fabulous time.
This has to be the best and most informative day trip to the Everglades. Our guide Adam was excellent, he showed us every Eco system and took us to places to spot rare birds and pointed just about every type of plant in the park and told us how the Native Americans used various plants. One the cruise we enjoyed watching large pods of dolphin feeding on fish. The airboat took us up close to alligators and birds. Highly recommend this day trip to anyone.
Adam is the best tour guide I've ever had and I am 73 years old and have traveled the world. His knowledge and passion for the Everglade's flora and fauna as well as his kind, sensitive people skills made the 10 hour day a joy for all 13 of us in the van. No one fell asleep. Everyone learned to respect the beauty and fragility of the glades. -Peggy Moroney, Tempe, Arizona
The tour was excellent. Our guide was the very best!. I definitely recommend the whole day tour, including our guide and those that captained the airboat and the pontoon boat. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour went extremely smoothly. Lunch was very good and enjoyable as well. We enjoyed the multitude of wildlife we saw including alligators, dolphins, and birds.
Our guide, Rick, was very well versed in the Everglades. But more important, he was able to explain complex phenomenon with ordinary language so that all could understand. We enjoyed the tour very much.

We enjoyed our day on the Everglades. It was interesting, and something was going on all day long.
Adam, our tour guide, did a very good job. He is very knowledgeable on the Everglades and made it interesting.
Guide was knowledgeable and more importantly, inspired by the natural facets of S. Florida he was showing us. One oddity: I am extremely scientific-minded. The only other guests on this tour, a young couple, had their own topics to discuss between them during much of the tour. Hence, the guide (I've already managed to forget the name, although it may have been Andy, Alex, Adam, or another "A" name) was frequently and needlessly more or less lecturing me about how natural selection works. Nevertheless, I liked this guy and were I to actually move to that area, he would be of the type I would seek friendship with, we both sharing immense respect for and interest in nature.
The part of the day during which we were on a large pontoon boat and able to view many dolphins was the most valuable to me. I had already completed numerous hikes-Corkscrew Swamp, Crews lands, 6 Mile Cypress Slough, Calusa Nature Preserve, Barefoot Beach, and Lover's Key, hence the relatively more brief walk that was a part of this day was good, but not exceptional, for me. The airboat was fun and I'd always wanted to ride one of those, but the dolphins stole the show! All in all, well worth the time and $$.
Way way too much time in the van. The hike was about 15 minutes. The scenic drive was a few hundred yards down a road next to a canal. There were some alligators in the water we could see through the van windows. The boat rides were good. The air boat was only about 30 min though.
