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 tour was visually amazing and our guide, Ivory and Sara were knowledgeable (Sara is one of the amazing mural artist) and gave us a lot of information we would not have gotten on our own! I have a greater appreciation for this type of art and amazing creativity and storytelling behind 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.

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.
