      I took this tour with my nephew and it was AMAZING! I took the same tour 6 months ago with another nephew and enjoyed it just as much the second time around. Each tour guide brings their own unique perspective and knowledge to the day - I was presently surprised that the 2nd time was just as good as the first.

      Our tour guide this time around, Mark, was passionate about conservation and about enjoying the planet we inhabit. His extensive knowledge and deep enthusiasm made the day unforgettable!

      There were only 5 of us on the tour which was a nice break after all the crowds of people on the cruise excursions. After a bit of a drive where we saw many species of birds we stopped at the “Everglades Safari Park” where we boarded an airboat that zoomed us through and into the Everglades National Park. Even though we did not see any Alligators I still enjoyed the thrill of the boat ride and the day was not over yet and a visit to the “Big Cypress Nation Preserve” was awaiting. Our guide took us on a long walkway built out into the heart of the swamp where we witnessed the magic of air plants living on trees; many varieties of birds, especially herons and ibis; big and baby Alligators; and who knows what else may have been lurking in that swamp. The Preserve is the heart of the Florida Panther’s primary range. Five distinct habitats shelter the life of this wet and wild world; Hardwood hammocks, Pinelands, Prairies, Cypress swamps and Estuaries. Seeing this was on my “to do” list and the final part of the tour just topped it all off. On the western edge of the Everglades bordering Ten Thousand Island and the Gulf of Mexico in Everglades National Park is Chokoloskee Island. It has been called one of Florida’s last frontiers and at the historic “Smallwood Store” you learn the story of the pioneers who tamed this vast wilderness. Established in 1906 by Ted Smallwood, the Trading Post, through good times and bad has survived six hurricanes. It has remained in the Smallwood family and today is operated by Ted’s granddaughter as a museum and serves as a time capsule of Florida pioneer history. In front of this museum we climbed into a jet boat and our very knowledgeable and experienced guide whisked the out among the 10,000 islands on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. There was an abundance of wildlife which was highlighted by a pair of mating dolphins who decided that it was more fun to play with our boat than to continue their endeavors. This was an amazing day!!!!!!!!!

      We had a great day on our tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and great fun. We say so many alligators it became boring!! Other people we met who had also gone out for the day only saw two!
      Should have gone with our guy. All in all had a great day, I think a small group is such a good idea.
      Would recommend definitely.

      We had a wonderful day doing this trip! We were picked up from our hotel by our guide, Julio. He was super knowledgeable and shared a lot of good information about the animal and plant life and the local ecosystem. We enjoyed the airboat ride and saw plenty of alligators and birds. Then we did a nature hike. Lunch was awesome. The highlight of the day for me was having the dolphins race us on the boat trip at the end of the day! Over all a wonderful trip! Truly recommending this one!

      Highly recommended: this is a very well thought out tour, and Erin our guide gave us so much good information and interesting stories as we drove from place to place. Seeing the wildlife and birds was as good as I'd hoped, and the lunch was very good. The manatees were there for us the day we went which was a special treat. Thanks to all who helped make it a wonderful day out for us.

      Viator could not be more accommodating. I changed hotels at the last minute and they made sure to set me up with a pick-up close to our hotel. The tour was fantastic. Learned a few new things. We even had the pleasure of a duo of dolphins follow our boat and play in the waves that our boat made. So much fun.
