Terrible experience
, Jun 2021
The actual experience was unorganized and their was no direction from the leader. Then we were told the van to go home would be waiting on us. An hour later we finally took an Uber.
, Jun 2021
Did not adhere well to schedule. Bus had issues, driver did not work clutch well. Took longer than suggested time
Great adventure
, May 2021
Had an amazing time Captain Jeremy was great during the airboat trip. No much sitting area, had to eat stating up.
Fun tour to Everglades
, May 2021
The tour was ver pleasant. Boat ride on the Bay was good. Very nice to cruise in hot weather. Everglades park was fun. Saw real alligator in the wild. Pick up and drop off was well coordinated. Bus to everglades was late but it was traffic accident so can’t blame the company.

This tour was Excellent.I would recommend .I enjoyed the cruise to the Millionaire homes.The tour guides were all friendly and made us feel very Comfortable.we really had a fabulous time
Airboat experience 5/5... but pack snacks and a lunch!!
, Mar 2021
Communication between the tour operator (Gloria) and our initial bus tour guide greeter was pretty good. we were told that morning that because of some miscommunication we couldn’t get picked up at our hotel (it was in Midtown) so we had enough time to Uber to bayside market.. not ideal but they answered my calls in a timely manner and it worked out. The bus ride to the Everglades was alright- about 45 mins but we had to stop halfway to pick up a bus full of people in front of us because their bus broke down- so that made us late to the ever glades... we saw the gator show, and then took the Airboat on the water. Our water guide was great - and it was an easy 5/5 experience for that alone. But there was no time to eat- no time to use the rest rooms and the communication and organization of the bus driver was a 0/5. We were rushed leaving the Everglades afraid to be left behind and by the time we made it back to bayside for the cruise we had ten mins to grab a hotdog and head to the boat. The boat guide was friendly and informative- but 90 minutes for the cruise felt a little too long after such a rushed day. I think the best part of buying this day package was skipping the lines for purchasing the gator show tickets and airboat tickets that looked about 45 min- 1 hour wait time.
Good experience

No time to enjoy because the driver was so late picking us up....
, Mar 2020
The bus picking us up was running very late. Thus, for the rest of the day, we felt very rushed. When we got to the Airboat, we almost missed our call because we got in line for food and then had to run down to the boat with food in hand and had no time to actually eat the food until be got off the airboat. The airboat ride was fun and informative. Then, rush back to the bus for the next thing. We had to rush down to the boat for the Bay Cruise. We got our tickets from the bus driver at 2:21 and the boat left at 2:30. He told us to be at the pickup place at a very specific time, which we were, but then he left us waiting for 15 to 20 minutes. It was all very rushed and disorganized and there was not time to eat. I don't know why he was soooooooo late picking us up and then not really able to eat without time to sit and enjoy our food.

Safety Concerns
, Mar 2020
Driver of your bus was texting and posting photos to social media while he was transporting passengers Including small children. We had to tell him to put his phone done. This is not a tour you want to book. This company has no regard for their guests safety. We reported them to the authorities.

Everglades, Cool. Biscayne Bay Multi-million Dollar Home Tour, Dumb.
, Feb 2020
Everglades airboat tour was cool, worth it. The alligator show afterward lasted for about 5 minutes and was really just a park guide feeding the alligators. You get the opportunity to hold a baby alligator, but he looks pretty out of it, limp, and drugged up. You also tend to feel bad given 50 people are about to hold this poor guy. The Biscayne Bay boat tour is worthless unless you’re into seeing the skyline for about 5 of the 90 minute tour. The rest of the tour is a guide showing you multi-million dollar homes of celebrities. If you’re into that, do this tour. Otherwise, this boat tour has nothing to do with Biscayne Bay, Miami, or wildlife. When they say, look at the “crystal clear waters” for wildlife like manatees, dolphins, and manta rays, it’s a lie. This was mostly dumb and I’ll be calling Viator for a refund of some sort.
