Worst tour ever!!! You'll spend most of your day on a shuttle back and forth from Bayside to Dolphin Mall to the Everglades back to Dolphin Mall back to Bayside. The AC didn't work on the shuttle back from Everglades so we were very uncomfortable. This was my 3rd Alligator/Crocodile tour but the 1st one where we did not see a single Alligator on the airboat ride. Save your money and skip this tour.
The bus picked us up outside out hotel and the the bus ride was comfortable. The everglades on the air boat was great and we saw multiple alligators. The trip was educational and our air boat driver was pleasant and knowledgeable. We ended our trip at the Biscayne Bay Cruise . The cruise was a nice ride seeing beautiful homes and yachts of the rich and famous. Great day trip at a reasonable price.
Unfortunately this was not a particularly good experience. We drove around Miami Beach for two hours on the bus picking up passengers before departing for the Everglades. This was entirely too long. Our driver who apparently was on his first trip either with the company or with this particular adventure was flustered and unable to really tell us what was going on. Also, his English was not particularly good and it was hard to communicate.
THIS WAS A GREAT TRIP TO EXPERIENCE. EVERYTHING WAS WELL PLANNED OUT AND WE ENJOYED IT. WE GOT TO THE DEPARTURE POINT A LITTLE LATE. THE DRIVER WHO WAS PULLING OUT, STOPPED AND WAITED FOR US. THE AIRBOAT GUIDE WAS SUPER NICE AND VERY PERSONABLE. THIS WAS A FANTASTIC DAY AND WELL WORTH THE PRICE FOR ALL IT INCLUDED. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS AS ONE OF THE BETTER TOURS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED.
Tour was well organized, just enough free time. The everglades airboat captain was informative and we did see alligators in the wild. Enjoyed the Bay Cruise and learning about the history and wealth of the area.
