Everything about this tour was great--the guide Randy was very informative and friendly. Our air boat ride was a great trip as was the boat ride into the Everglades. It is a long day, but it is well worth the time and money. I would do it again!!!!

This is now the third tour we have taken with Viator and were again blown away by the passion and knowledge of our guide and the content and pace of the day spent in the Everglades. The tour was packed full of interest and adventure. The small number in our group 8 was perfect to take full advantage of the day. I would recommend Viator to anyone who is interested in learning more whilst on a break. Superb value for money.

Our tour guide Randi was amazing, she is so knowledgeable about all the wildlife. I found it amazing how she could drive, talk about the history of the area and spot birds and alligators to point out. She has a great sense of humor also. Because of the time of year it was going to be more difficult to see wildlife, so she took us to a nearby rookery, what a wonderful sight that was. Thanks Randi for that bonus stop!! However we were able to see plenty of alligators and a couple dolphins. Airboat captain Fred if I remember correctly was great too. He was able to find us quite a few gators and really knew his stuff. Our lunch was yummy, first time we had alligator - a definite will try again. I am pretty sure that our boat driver was Trevor, he did a great job showing us the islands and wildlife around them. His greatest accomplishment was to get us back just before the down pour, as we pulled up to the dock he said we have about 45 seconds until it rains... He was absolutely correct. LOL Great job to everyone involved. Hopefully I got the names correct.
