Great airboat ride. Great...

Great airboat ride. Great bus driver. The air conditioning did not work on the bus. It was uncomfortably hot. We ended up taking an umber ride back for an extra $53.00. We felt it was a breeding g ground for Covid.

This was a great tour once at the Everglades. I wish there was more communication about the bus ride there though. We were picked up at 930 from the hotel and didn’t make it to the Everglades until 11. We made stops at several hotels and then another bus joined our bus. Most of the time was spent being on the bus when the time at the wverglades was only 2.5 hours max.

The guides informative and entertaining talk. The airboat experience. Even though we didn’t see any wildlife due to the weather, there were alligators in their lake for us to see

Hey Oscar, It was great having you on board our tour, please don't hesitate to recommend us to your friends and family ! Best regards, Vincent Guest Relations Manager
Nice, but it has a lot of potencial to be better
, Aug 2021
The pickup option is great. I liked the activities but it seems that they are still building up the place. The airboat captain was fun and entertained us. I have mixed feelings about the show with alligators, it looks like something really dangerous but is not clear if this is helping these animals, and there's a place where you can take a photo with a small alligator, this alligator was very scared and I felt sorry for him, I recommend not to do this, posing with animals stresses the animals and could be dangerous. I think is a good activity but it could have more potencial if u have a place to show scientific stuff about the animals and the ecosystem with infographics, a small museum or something like that. The food store is also very limited so we could just buy Pringles and junk food. Anyway we had a nice time there and it was something different to do in Miami.

Dear Ms. Angela Camargo: Thank very much for your valuable feedback, we are thrilled you enjoyed the airboat tour ! We value your concerns.The State of Florida has very strict animal welfare protection laws in place. Animals can only be kept in captivity for educational purposes and only if they previously posed a nuisance or threat to humans. Florida's Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) is administered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. We thrive to offer the best and safest experience for both our animals and guests. Best regards, Vincent White Guest Relations Manager

Dear Ms. Maria Ambriz: Thank very much for your valuable, we are so sorry for the traffic situation on your travel date. We know how frustrating Miami's weekend traffic can be. We recommend visiting the Everglades during the week when there is less traffic. Best regards, Vincent White Guest Relations Manager

Not the tour we booked. Twice as much people as advertised on the boat. Twice the price and no low price guarantee as advertised.

Dear Mr. Michael Schulz-Heyne: We are so sorry the tour was not what you expected. We offer a variety of boat sizes and are confident that our private or small group tour option is more to your liking. We do in fact guarantee the lowest price on all tour options. Always at your service ! Vincent White Guest Relations Manager
Misleading Address location
, Jul 2021
Didn't get a chance to experience the boat tour the address provided was 26700 NW 8th st Miami,FL with no zip code which took us across town same street but different zip code 🤦‍♀️ would have been helpful to include the zip code in the emil not just address. I contacted them explaining what happened and they refused to acknowledge their mistake in the email or give me a refund or switch date or time. I would not book again.. This is why I'm really leery about booking excursions on line.

Dear Ms. Lakesa Pollard, We are so sorry you were late for the tour and were unable to navigate the Google Maps link we provided to you. We understand how stressful navigating on vacation can be, the address you provided in your review is unfortunately not the address you were provided with on your tour confirmation. We invite you to take advantage of our free Everglades pick up service in Miami Beach in the future. Always at your service! Vincent White Guest Relations Manager
