While we enjoyed the trip, it got a little bit long. We found that the time after lunch and before the airboat ride to somewhat useless. Riding along a dirt road looking for alligators and turtles got way to long.
We really enjoyed the two boat rides and the lunch was great. Driver was knowledgeable and was fun to be with.

Our driver and guide Doug was informative and organized. He covered the history and biology of the Everglades, including current concerns such as development that threaten this valuable ecosystem. Jeff, the skiff captain at Chokoloskee, was a treat with his humor and native son stories. Our airboat pilot at Trafford Lake took us right into the shore habitat for close up viewing. We saw plenty of gators, snakes, and birds. Lunch in Everglades City at City Seafood was yummy. All of this is offered in a small group tour. I would highly recommend this trip. We did this in February before mosquito season.

The tour was very good and our guide, Doug, was very good. The issue is, your advertisement shows that you see Flamingos and that did not happen. We were told during the tour that Flamingos are not native to Florida and the only place to see them is in the theme parks.

There was a lot to cover on this day trip. I will mention what I can remember. Our naturalist, who was from Boston, was great! A real environmentalist and able to instruct us. It wasn't hot when we went so we needed No DEET but I could only imagine that going into the forest we would get mosquito bites more than the 5 we got in January. You were able to take very nice wildlife and waterfowl pictures along the way. There are a Lot of alligators on the tour! There were a few legs of this trip and each were informative parts that tell the story of Florida's beginnings. The airboat ride was very fun! I highly recommend this tour if you want to know All about Florida's history and environmental past. Love to get close to nature and get great pictures of Many bird species.

We really enjoyed the experience. The airboat ride was great, we saw a lot of wildlife birds, alligators. The walk was a bit of a challenge due to the heat and the mosquitos. In the afternoon we enjoyed a ride in the ocean, where we saw dolphins, horseshoecrabs and manatees.Annie, our guide was very knowledgeable.
