      Started the day with the heavens opening and the rain beating down but despite not really being able to look out the windows of the bus Lance our guide made it interesting and enjoyable journey.

      By the time we got to the first stop the rain ceased. The company had every thing we needed from umbrellas to ponchos to bug spray and sun screen all was well cared for.

      We had a brilliant day saw more wild life than I ever expected and for me the high light was the dolphins swimming with us on the first boat ride.

      thank you Lance for making our experience and day some thing we will never forget and we’ll worth the price you could not have got a day like that on your own x x x

      This is truly a wonderful day of exploration and wonder. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting. He spoke when we were interested and was quiet when we were tired. We saw dolphins, manatees, alligators, deer, birds; all the highlights and learned about each one. The airboat and the ride through 10,000 islands were my two favorites.

      A very well organized tour of the Everglades and Big Cypress - small group with limited time riding around the city picking up a large group. Great tour of the 10,000 Islands to see dolphins and birds and the west coast of the state. Air boar tour was a real tour of the sea of grass including local cultures, alligators, turtles and birds - not a 20 minute Disney ride. I would highly recommend this trip.

      I wanted to do something a bit more involved than just an airboat ride to look at an alligator, and this is definitely what I was looking for.

      Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about both the natural ecosystem as well as the local towns and people. Made the experience very enjoyable and were able to appreciate the whole area much more.

      Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

      This tour gave us an extensive experience of the Everglades, with Mark our driver/guide being very knowledgeable. The walk in the Everglades allowed us to see many birds and numerous alligators of all sizes up close. The boat ride through the 10000 Islands to the Gulf of Mexico was interesting with a bottlenose dolphin coming along for part of the ride. Lunch at a mexican restaurant was nice and the airboat ride was a bit of fun.

      The best experience on our holiday to Miami! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
      The group was small 9 people guide, perfectly organised e.g. we have chosen our lunch order, before entering the very first attraction, so on lunch time all food was ready and we haven't waist any minute waiting for it and the guide was a 'nature freak' :. She knew A LOT about the surrounding nature, and could answer all the questions asked by the group we had an ornithologist in our group, so answering questions was not easy. The price of the trip felt heigh at first, but we saw so many things in so luxurious conditions, that now I feel it was very cheap.
      SUMMARY: Perfectly organised trip for those who want to see all the beauty of Everglades. Best trip so far. Highly recommended. :

      This tour was amazing! If you have a whole day available, its a great way to experience the Everglades in an immersion way--and, with a delicious lunch as well! Our guide, Sand, who is also an owner, was a natural-born biologist, as well as being nice as can be! We had a Miccosukee guide on our air boat ride and he was very entertaining as well as knowledgeable. Our lake cruise was a really interesting ride with a local tour guide who lived in the area forever. The walk was in the best weather and we were there early enough that the crowds were non-existent. By the time we left, crowds were roaring in to Everglades National Park.

      I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanted to learn a lot about the Everglades in a short period of time. The tour groups are small and everything was well-organized, pleasant and perfect!

      Absolutely fantastic day. My family had an experience like no other, with a wonderfully informative, friendly and funny guide who looked after us like we were friends. The stops were brilliant, we came away feeling like we know the everglades, its culture, wildlife and residents. Highly recommended.
