What people are saying about Kissimmee

This was our first time on an airboat, and it was amazing! We had a wonderful time with our tour guide Scott! Would definitely recommend as a summer activity, we went in December, and it was a bit too cold.

Great guide for the airboat ride and fun in the wildlife park after -watching Gators being fed and more. Such a nice change of pace from hectic theme parks! Went with adult siblings from overseas

Our captain was great and we loved the experience. They were very accommodating for weather and made sure we got our monies worth.
