Reviewed December 4, 2017 
This tour is absolutely wonderful!! We had an amazing day!! We saw over 50 alligators, a ton of different and beautiful birds & dolphins. This tour is a perfect combination of must sees in The Everglades. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you want to avoid the more touristy experiences like alligator wrestling.
