    The bus drive was okay (I would give one star less). I followed my group because I thought our guide would bring me to the right place, but apparently the rest of the group took their tours somewhere else. I did the dolphin and snorkeling tour with Fury Water Adventures. The boat tour was amazing - I went with Captain Anna and we saw dolphins very close to the island, that’s why she took us out close to the reef snorkeling. After we were done snorkeling we were offered beer, wine, mimosas and sodas (they expect a tip at the end of the tour, but I would have tipped them anyways). We headed back with the bus at 6.15pm and I got off around 10.20pm in Miami Beach.

    Overall was good. Really enjoyed the Everglades tour. Would suggest some earplugs for those with sensitive hearing. Loud when going at high speed. Transfer from bus to boat rental was a little stressful. The instructions did not mention needing printed receipt for boat tour from bus personnel first. Hurried down to make reservations and then had to come back for receipt and go back again. We were not the only ones. Bus tour nice, relaxing, nothing exciting but did see a lot of the city. Boat tour was good. Nice trip, pleasant guide. Suggest bringing drinks/snacks if doing all 3 in 1 day like we did.

You will be provided with snorkeling equipment; take the opportunity to visit the colorful coral reefs of the Florida Keys.

    Key West is a great trip well worth doing with some lovely scenery all the way there. The snorkelling was just as good - a fantastic experience. My advice would be to try and grab a table seat on the coach for extra comfort. 15 hours from pickup at hotel to drop off back at hotel so it is a full day.

Marlena and Oscar were excellect guides and were very helpful and knowledgable. Don't listen to the negative comments!!! I would recommend this tour a hundred times over!! When I come back in 6 months I will be booking this tour again!!!

It was a fun experience that Me and my child enjoyed. Our Bus came at around 7:05am. We paid for the trolley tour in Key west it helped a lot and it is a beautiful Island I will come again

Captain Mike was awesome. He’s a alligator whisperer. Lol Bus ride there was very informative and the trip back was just what we needed, quiet.

Make sure you do it during day night, nevertheless it was a beautiful scenery at night.

Dillon was absolutely fantastic!!! We had such a fun time!
