Enjoy commentary from your naturalist guide about the area’s unique geology and history!
  • Experience a variety of ecosystems and their amazing wildlife, including birds, fish and alligators

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This safari-like tour provides entry to three attractions as well as a private personalized experience.
Your private Everglades expedition begins with (suggested) morning pickup from your Miami hotel. Meet your wilderness guide and enjoy the warm Florida breeze as you cruise in an open-air Jeep toward the Tamiami Trail. Learn about prehistoric geological wonders within this extraordinary wetland area — the only in the world to be considered a Wetland of International Importance, an International Biosphere Reserve and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Next, head into Big Cypress National Preserve for a short nature walk. Your guide’s expert commentary makes this an unforgettable wildlife-spotting expedition. Skirt though fields of sawgrass and stroll along cypress-lined trails. See some of the area’s native animals such as alligators, turtles, otters, wild pigs and variety of water fowl. Then continue touring the preserve by Jeep, hearing about the area’s cultural history and stopping at sites like Sweetwater Stand for more scenic views. 

The final leg of your trip takes you on the water! Trade your Jeep for an airboat and set off on an educational ride through sawgrass marshes. Witness the unique wetland homes once used by Miccosukee Indians and enjoy an entertaining and educational wildlife exhibit.

Throughout the trip, learn about the Everglades’ unique ecosystem and conservationist efforts to preserve it. Your tour concludes with afternoon drop-off at your Miami hotel.

An excellent tour in every aspect. John was an extremely knowledgeable guide on a broad range of topics from the local cultures and history to the geography and biology of the region. Far more than I expected and a great value for money.
Great Experience!

This was an exceptional tour. Great value for money. Our guide knew the history of the area thoroughly and was enthusiastic.

We did not go to hear the captain's view of President Obama!
