The tour was well done. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We have some good memories to take back. We were also fortunate with a good weather. The bus driver was good and picked & dropped us on time. All in All a good experience

Very prompt pickup from hotel. Tour was brilliant. Saw so many alligators in the swamp. Guide was prefect. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. We were fortunate to be in a very small group which made it almost a private tour. How they find their way round those back waters is amazing. Highly recommended.

The boat tour itself was very good. We upgraded to the 6 capacity wind boat. Some things which detracted from the tour- our guide used the F word a number of times on the tour along with other colorful language, which was surprising. Additionally, he was an avid hunter and wanted to talk about his hunting ad nauseam, which I really did not want to hear about as someone who is not a fan of hunting. Worse, he proceeded to tell us how some swamp show on tv is bogus because “you don’t shoot alligators when you hunt them as it damages the hide”. Therefore, what he does is tie the alligator to the side of the boat and strike them in the back of the head on their soft spot with a ball pein hammer. That was terribly graphic and not something I wanted to hear. Finally, at the end of the tour, three boats tied together and they had two very small alligators. One guide tossed the alligator from his boat to our boat to our guide. This showed no concern for the animals and the smaller of the two was breathing very heavily and seemed distressed as it was passed among members of the boat. I wish the guides had shown more concern for nature/animals and an awareness that not everyone wants to hear about killing animals.

Everything way above expectations. To really see and learn about the swamp area take the covered boat, not the air boat. Our guy was personable and knew the area all his life. He promised gators and saw at least 5. We loved the tour.

We had a great time on our tour! Everyone was fun, informative, and professional from the shuttle driver who picked us up to the tour guide. We did the swamp boat and saw plenty of gators up close and some on our shuttle did the more fast paced air boat tour. We all had an amazing time!
