Super Guide Worth every penny

about 3 months ago
Our guide Luca was a very kind, entertaining and knowledgeable man whom we really enjoyed. We saw plenty of wildlife and a small insight to how some who live in the swamps live. Worth every penny!

Very good Swamp Boat Tour

about 5 months ago
The swamp boat tour was very good and Luca was a knowledgeable and great guide. He kept the passengers engaged and entertained throughout the 2 hour trip. It was a cold January morning, which is why no gator surfaced (depends on the luck and if you can notice one) but we still saw some wildlife and predator birds in the swamp. Overall a good experience. I'd like to return someday when it's warmer and take the tour again.
