What people are saying about Everglades City

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 43 reviews

We were thrilled with the German guide, his knowledge of the country and its people. We were also a small group of 5 people, the guide answered our questions and requests. The reserve was in the middle of the nature reserve, we didn't see any real indigenous people, but why and why they ended up in the middle of the Everglades was impressively described. Since the Indians bought safari animals, we could also see zebras on our tour with the off-road vehicle. The tour would be great overall, but getting to the location is almost impossible without a car. It was given 7 hours, probably scheduled for and departure from Miami, but not included in the price. The tour then lasted a total of 4 hours on site, which was completely sufficient. You can also book the tour directly through Banana Joe, then there are not so many misunderstandings regarding the meeting point, duration and the price is cheaper.

Great trip

We were two in a group of 8 people with a guide. The shuttle picked us up at the airB & B and drove to the Everglades. There was snacks and sunscreen for all the water. We started with a walk on one of the available trails through the NP. Right at the beginning we were lucky to find some baby alligators. The walk was really great beetle birds alligators with it all. The guide has also explained some of the plants and history. After that we went to the airboat after a short break. A little fun with fresh breeze also there we have seen a lot. A small stop on a platform was also there, we have seen an alligator lady from the near. Then it went back. It was great for a half day trip! We were excited and really satisfied. The Gudie was super friendly, funny and just great !!!!
