Our guide was exceptionally informative and passionate. And the airboat ride was interesting and fun. Both our guide and airboat captain were very good. We enjoyed the Everglades National Park much more by booing this tour.
Hotel pick-up and drop-off went swift, our guide was great, knowledgeable and kept the excitement running. The nature walk was nice, we saw quite a lot of alligators and lots of birds, we could have gone for a more challenging hike though was fine as packaged with the boat ride (which was our main event). The boat ride was great, we were happy that we were part of a small group of 6 in a smaller airboat rushing through the waters, and not cramped in a boat of 20 (which we saw when taking off). We very much appreciated the respect for the wildlife of the guides. Do recommend if you want a quick getaway from miami beach.
Lance, our guide was very knowledgeable, and actually just an all around super guy. Saw tons of crocs and birds. So nice to just walk and view the animals in their natural habitat. Airboat ride was fun. The guide for that part was very knowledgeable as well. A super day! Very highly recommend the experience!
It was very interesting to know so many things thanks to the very knowledgeable and kind guide.
The aiboat trip was fun but in February it was really cold.
Very comfortable the pick up at the hotel.
The only issue: I think it's way too expensive.
Our guide was SOO knowledgeable Mike, Tami& Stacy did an excellent job! We saw tons of gators and cool birds. The airboat ride was awesome as we saw gators and birds catching fish out there as well thanks for a great tour!!!
Wild animals in natural environment with knowledgeable guide

This was exactly the way I wanted to experience Everglades. When I was looking for different options, I felt that the ones promoting 30min airboat ride + alligator shows were too commercial for my taste. On this excursion, our terrific guide Elena took us for a 2h walk in the Everglades, where we spotted alligators and their babies, beautiful birds, fishes and turtles. After the walk we went for a 60min airboat ride during which we also paused for a while to visit an old Indian village in its current form (made safe for tourists to visit etc.). From the airboat ride I only wanted the thrill and fun from driving fast in the airboat, but the captain pointed us also animals. The only reason I am not giving five starts for this thrip is that in my opinion the captain did chase the animals in order for us to see an alligator swimming and a bird flying etc. This was unnecessary. Otherwise I enjoyed the trip in a small group with knowledgeable guide and would definitely recommend this tour to everyone interested in seeing wild animals in their natural environment.
