It was excellent and exactly has advertised. Bus was a little late but picked us up and took us to the everglades where we went on a boat tour and saw 4-5 alligators. Afterwards was the show which is a little strange but still nice. It is about an hour away but enjoyable as they provide a very large bus,

Such a fun way of seeing the Miami coast! Despite the boat going fast, it wasn’t choppy. It was a smooth drive with loud music, great views and wind in our hair. We loved it and grabbed some really great videos/pictures!

Watching for alligators on the boat ride was fun! We missed the alligator show and picture with the alligator at the end so will do that the next time.

Me comprometí con mi novia en el vuelo y todo fue Excelente, el piloto y el equipo fue super amable. Super recomendado.

Fue una experiencia muy bonita estar en contacto con la naturaleza
