Owner description: Contact Number: +1 239-260-4577 Website Address: http://www.tourtheglades.com Tour The Glades - Private Wildlife Tours is the Only all inclusive Private tour operator in the Everglades! Quality instead of quantity is our goal...which means our guests receive 100% of our attention. We can only do one (maybe two) trips per day which makes each one very special. This approach is better for the environment and hands down the best way to explore the Everglades & 10,000 Islands....just you and your own personal guide. Come with us in search of Alligator, Manatee, Black Bear, playful Dolphin and even the elusive Florida Panther! The Everglades is also a Birder's Paradise and we'll help you get your target species. We provide tours year round and all excursions are led by Local Naturalist Guides that provide EVERYTHING you'll need. Fresh fruit, cold bottled water and all the necessities are included. You won't need to purchase any additional items because we've thought of everything! Private is BEST because YOU are our #1 priority.

Had a great time on the water seeing lots of birds and some aligators in the distance. Don't expect to see a lot of wildlife but rather enjoy the scenery. Very friendly guide,good value for money

Spent a private 2 hour with the excellent Logan kayaking in the Everglades. If you want to escape for some peace and quiet in the most unusual of environments, this is for you. Logan was suitably laid back and knowledgeable. My biggest regret of the tour was not doing it for longer.

The tour we took was amazing. We went by boat to the Watson Homestead, written about by Peter Matthiessen in Shadow Country, and our guide, Gary, was as knowledgeable as they get about the flora, fauna, and history of the Everglades. Tod was unbelievably enthusiastic in helping us book the trip and incredibly well-informed as well. 5 stars aren't enough.

We had a great kayak tour with Josh and our 2 boys (5 & 9 y. o.), one in each tandem kayak. Great explanations on the history of the area, and the kids enjoyed to learn more on the local wild life while kayaking into the mangrove. Saw lots of birds. Thanks Josh and team for the experience and great customer service!
