Great tour company to Everglades
We booked a tour of the Everglades with an airboat ride and alligator show. It was reasonably priced at $125 for two of us. The company has several pick up locations, including several hotels. The bus arrived on time. It was in excellent condition and very comfortable. The bus driver Danielle was polite and super informative and an excellent driver. The drive to the Everglades was about 30 minutes from downtown Miami. We arrived at the Everglades and had an excellent guide on the air boat ride and saw lots of alligators, birds and turtles. Our guide was very informative about the area and the flora and fauna of the area. There was a brief alligator show that was fun. There is a restaurant, rest rooms and gift shop at the Everglades location. The bus was there for us after the show and returned us to our hotel. Excellent company to deal with. I would recommend any of their tours as I am sure they are as well run as this one was.

Fun and educational
What a great you're. This was an immersive experience from the bus ride to the actual base at the everglades park. Although it appears a small roadside operation, it was a very engaging and heartfelt experience. Our guide Kennesaw or "Kenny" for short was the best. Please do yourself a favor and have a go at this one. Love every minute of it including the wildlife spotting.

Great Everglades tour
We did a morning Everglades tour and were very happy with it. The pick up at Bayside was on time, the coach was clean and tidy with a very pleasant driver and quite an interesting voice-over on the 40 minute journey. The boat trip was excellent (noisy, but they provide earplugs) with lots of alligators to see, plus birds, turtles. Very informative boat captain. Afterwards the alligator show was an informative demonstration (no dancing alligators!) with a baby alligator brought out at the end for photo purposes. There's a bit of time at the end to walk around and/or go to the cafe (cafe is fairly basic) before the 40 minute drive back to Miami Bayside. Exactly as described!

Fantastic experience in the Everglades!
My girlfriend and I visited the Everglades by booking through Miami Tour Company. We caught the tour bus in downtown Miami. We left nicely on-time and were welcomed with a much needed chilled bottle of water (really nice gesture). We had a comfortable journey to the Everglades, and on our arrival our driver even offered suncream and mosquito spray which was really thoughtful. From the bus we made our way to the boats, everything ran very smoothly. The tour was very enjoyable. The driver spent the time to tell us about the environment. He also stopped the boat to point out the local wildlife and explain some interesting facts about them. Afterwards we had plenty of time to watch the show, have a walk around some of the Everglades, and have a snack. The bus picked up and headed back into Miami.

Fun in the sun
It was such a great tour and fun time. We did the afternoon everglades tour, it was about a 40 minute bus ride, a 30 minute boat ride and a 25 minute show. Definitely worth the trip!

Interesting tour
Imho, the Everglades are quite overrated but we did get to see numerous alligators during our visit. The tour was very well managed, on time and well staffed. Driver was very organized and courteous. I would take another tour with the same company, just not to the same location as there was little to see besides the reptiles.

Birthday Treat
Booked this for my boyfriend and I as a birthday surprise. He really loved it. We were the only people on the mini bus that day so the drive there and back was relatively quick and easy. The drivers were great, very informative and told us lots of hints and things to do in Miami. The place it’s self was pretty cool and the air boat was fun, got to see several alligators, birds an fish and learned about the surrounding. My boyfriend loved being able to drive his own boat around after!

Hold a baby gator
This Everglades trip was fun! It’s a quick thing to do if there’s a could day on a nice afternoon. Ride was pretty quick, about 30 mins there and then about 30-45 mins on the airboat which was a blast. After that there’s a gator mini “show and tell” that’s bout 15 mins and you can get a photo holding a mini gator! Recommend!

Professional tour company
I found the Miami Tour Company to be very professional, they called to confirm my booking the day before. The actual tour was excellent, but the main benefit for me was the hotel pickup and the cost which were both superb. I didn't have a car so getting to the Everglades to do the airboat was going to be a challenge, but it was simple and the cost was very reasonable so I'd highly recommend using them. Thanks!
