Fun but a lot of driving

The guides/drivers were great, the van was air conditioned and clean. Just expect a lot of driving to get from hotel to Jungle Boat and then to get to coffee plantation. Next time I would break it into two separate tours. Tour company was great and professional. Would use them for other tours as well.

Guide and driver knowledgeable and professional.

Driver was an excellent driver. Guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Tour was great on nice boat which felt safe near alligators. Driver and guide constantly alert for animals. We saw alligators, shore birds, very active moneys and iquanas
