What people are saying about Everglades City

Fantastic airboat ride through the Everglades! Daniel was an amazing guide - he knew all of the best places to see alligators (we saw 8-10 of them up close), and he was knowledgeable in answering our many questions about the Everglades. I went with my husband and adult children - we all loved it and would highly recommend it!

The package offered was reasonably price. The bus was simple to find and the ride was comfortable the operator of the boat was well versed and we actually seen a lot of wildlife and an alligator as well.

Amazing experience to see what is a real signature of Florida, Everglades. I had so much fun with my kids. Boats are too noise though, we could have had even more fun with good earmuffs.

Fun! I wish it had more science, but it was for a delightful mass audience and fun and very well organized anyway.

this is my 2nd ride in 4 months. i enjoyed both and gets better based on the diversity of the guide.
