Everglades 5 star; this company 2 stars – review of airboat in everglades, miami, fl – tripadvisor gas in dogs symptoms

##############

I would electricity 80s song start by saying this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. The beauty of the Everglades was so unique and we did see a fair amount of wildlife. I would definitely recommend doing an airboat tour in Everglades to everyone. Yet, I was very unimpressed with this company. They were difficult to contact prior to our visit. And, the morning of our trip I checked my email on our drive to the meeting point only to find they had postponed our trip 1.5 hours, which they had emailed me the evening before at 830. When I called they said they attempted to contact me but I did not have a missed call from them.

The gentleman who met us at the boat launch was friendly enough, but when I asked if he was from airboat in Everglades, he said he was for the day. I assumed they subbed out some of their trips for the day but did not tell us this information. I am a small business owner as well, and would never sub out to a customer without discussing with them first. Also, the guide did not introduce himself To us or ask us our names. We saw two adult alligators both of which we pointed out to him ideal gas kinetic energy in order to slow down and watch. When my husband pointed out a large turtle he just kept going. Towards the end of the trip… I would start by saying this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. The beauty of the Everglades was so unique and we did see a fair amount of wildlife.

Towards the end gas after eating of the trip we did stop in a spot for a bit to see if we could see any more alligators. THe guide said, well, no such luck. My husband stayed standing ( to allow ourselves a little more time to search for alligators) to which my husband was able to spot a couple more baby alligators. Our two hour boat tour was done about 10 minutes early. So, overall, we were not impressed. The tour guide was pleasant and gave us some good information, maybe we are different from the average tourist, but felt we could have spent more time watching/searching for wildlife. I give a rating of two because you can’t go wrong taking a tour of the Everglades, but the tour group/ guide can make or break the trip. More Show less

What a terrific experience from beginning to end! First, we were running late due to our GPS unit giving us truly horrible directions to the meeting place (turns out, it was set to avoid toll roads, so it took us on a route that was way out k gas station jobs of the way and took 3 x as long to get there than it should have). We called Airboat in Everglades when we realized we wouldn’t make it in time, and they kindly rescheduled us to the next tour (a couple of hours later than the tour we were originally booked on). The meeting place is inside the convenience store of a gas station / truck stop. Once the whole group was there (I believe there were about 6 or 8 of us, plus the guide), we all drove (following the guide) to the launch area, not far from our meeting place. After getting on the boat b games zombie, the guide / driver took us through the Everglades, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, telling us about the Everglades and pointing out alligators. My favorite part was when we were taken to a secluded area to see a bunch of baby alligators! I’m not much of an outdoorsy kind of person, but this was a lot of fun! Highly recommend.

We booked a one hour private tour mainly because we couldn’t make it to the site in time for the group tours. We were asked to meet at a Shell station just outside Miami which seemed a little odd. I was initially concerned when I paid the guide and he then told us he would be back and got in his van a drove away. For a while I wondered if I had made a huge mistake however all was ok and he came back as promised within ten minutes. We then needed to get in our car and follow him to the site. The trip was well worth the money. Our guide Willie was so knowledgable – he knew where the wildlife was and told us so many gas after eating bread interesting facts about the area and animals. We saw two large alligators and some baby alligators plus a lovely bird (cannot remember what it was) that was so tame that it took food from my ten year old daughters hand. The only disappointment was that it started to rain fifteen minutes from the end so our trip was cut short and we got absolutely soaked getting back to base – mind you we were taking a risk at the time of year at three in the afternoon. I would recommend these people to anyone.
