A very nice trip to the Everglades. Not a typical "tourist event" with an animal show or similar. We first went for a walk in Shark Valley with our guide Lindsay from "Wild-Lime Adventure" and she told us a lot about nature, the animals and the environment. She always answered questions. After about an hour we drove to the airboat ride. On the way we stopped at an Indian station. All in all, it was a very interesting and beautiful trip that I can recommend.

It was fantastic. On the trip to the everglades, our guide Ben was able to tell us a lot about Miami and the development of the city, as well as about the people here. There was also a lot to learn about the animals and the Everglades habitat. The boatsman Elvis knew exactly where to find which animal. We were able to admire baby alligators freshly hatched, as well as a large alligator lady. Fantastic communication between humans and animals. A unique experience.

Super organized and very nice competent guides. No mass tourism :-) Punctual pick-up at the hotel. We start with the nature walk, which was very informative and exciting. Beforehand there were cool drinks and snacks, as well as sun protection and mosquito repellent. Lindsay knew a lot and knew exactly which animal lived in which corner. The airboat tour was the absolute highlight. I never thought I'd be that close to an alligator. A great tour with only a few people and really competent guides. The return trip to the hotel was also easy.
