This was amazing!! First time to Florida on our honeymoon and we just showed up with our tickets and paid for parking and they took care of the rest! We had Luiz as a guide and he was knowledgeable and funny and made the trip great! Our manatee instructors were Gina and Andrew and they were fabulous! We saw lots of manatees (at least 10) and got to swim with them! The only suggestion I have is to bring some $5’s, $10’s, $20’s for tips! And a warm change of clothes if it’s chilly! Our trip was about 8.5 hours total (8am-4:30pm) but time varies I think! Would definitely do it again!!!

I didn’t know that using this service would be so easy. We got on and off without issue and the drivers were very ready to answer any questions or concerns that we had. We will certainly be using this service again on our next trip to Orlando

Great time. A variety of activities for kids and adults alike.

A cheap way to travel around Orlando. Very friendly drivers.

Great Time! Easy to access the passes electronically.
