The airboat ride was really cool. Saw allot of wildlife, cows and a few gators. It was a fun experience and would recommend it. Our driver was very informative and had a really good personality, fun to talk too.

It was a very good experience for myself and my family. It was kinda cold that day and because of the weather we didn’t expect to see any alligators. However, we did end up seeing three in all. Our airboat captain was very knowledgeable.

Disappointed

We were really looking forward to the Everglades Tour but I received notification one day before that it was cancelled with no reason given. We were really looking forward to it. We could not reschedule because our days were limited. Very disappointed.

Good morning Diana_G, Unfortunately it was because the radar showed terrible weather for the following day…. The rain didn’t end up hitting the airboat area until 11am, however the forecast had it for the morning time. Sadly Mother Nature is something we cannot control and it has to be safety first. It should have been noted on the cancellation in the system for you to see. Hopefully we can see you again in the future and the rain from this week will stay away more! Tori

Good day overall - something different

Once we got to Wild Florida our Grayline tourguide was helpful and informative. We had to wait 30 minutes later than originally thought to board the airboat which broke up the morning a bit. Saw one gator on the opposite side of the boat but the boat was cool. Glad we did it, don’t know if I’d do it again. Be sure to confirm bus meeting time and location in advance. Our meeting time posted was 8:30, after calling to confirm, I was told 8:10 and the driver was still early to the mtg point and called to make sure we were coming. Probably just a courtesy call but had we planned to arrive at the listed time, we would not have been ready.

We really enjoyed our Everglades tour starting with our ride to the park with our guide Jason. He was so very informative with the history and facts about this area. Then our airboat ride with Captain Jeff. He was amazing and took us to the right spots to see wildlife including alligators and Bald Eagles. And then the wildlife park was equally enjoyable. Can’t beat this tour!

Awesome airboat ride and animal park. We saw lots of beautiful birds, wildlife, and alligators on the boat. Definitely do the one hour tour. Our tour guide from the bus was great and helpful. He told us a lot of interesting facts about the area on the way there. Hotel pick up was awesome! Our air boat operator was great too. The shows were great and everyone had a great time.

Entertaining and Enjoyable

I was very happy with this adventure. The bus was on time at the pickup location, and then the van ride to the destination was smooth sailing. The guide on the airboat was knowledgeable and entertaining, and the ride itself was beautiful. There was also plenty of time to look at the other animals at the location as well as get an un-rushed lunch before it was time to head back. I was on the hour-long trip, and I recommend it. I don't think the half-hour version would be enough time.

Nice tour, but awful phone service of Gray Line
theresedanielsson
, Feb 2020
The experience started of quite badly with the one of the most arrogant phone service I have encountered on the tour company Gray Line. We ordered the tour a day in advance and were supposed to call to schedule the pickup. We rang several times without any answer. When finally someone answered, the girl’s tone told us we were stupid and it felt like we were giving her trouble. I find that the service level in America normally is excellent, but this girl really hates her job and shouldn’t work with customer service. The tour was good, the driver and guide was nice and it was a lovely experience to see the swamp and we spotted two wild alligators!
