  • 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.

  • Perfect organization and places to visit! I would recommend this tour!

  • The ride is incredible, truly great, and Ben is an awesome guide. Highly recommended. Stay away from the gators :
