Great overall, the only issue is having to wait so long after taking the transportation option, about an hour before we could board the airboat. However once on our guide was very knowledgeable and really funny and kind. April is still a little on the chilly side, so jackets and pants is smarter than shorts and t-shirts. Also when the weather is on the colder side, there are not as many gators out and about. But overall we saw 10-15 gators and loved the experience!
Bus driver was great. Picked us up in front of our hotel and was very knowledgeable about the area and a lot of fun. Plantation was wonderful but weather was bad so airboat got canceled. Did get to go on a flat bottom boat though and the captain was great. Four stars because the airboat was canceled but not their fault. Great tour!
I've never been on an air boat, so I was excited about the experience! It was a great ride through various parts of the swamps and marsh. Our tour guide gave us a great story and history about the area! Saw and fed some alligators, but it was really cool at noontime, so only the younger ones were out eating. I'd do it again!
The tour of the plantation house was very interesting. However, the best part of the whole experience was the airboat/swamp ride! The guide that we were with was very informative and a lot of fun. I wish I knew his name so I could recommend him for everyone!
We had an absolute blast! The swamp is beautiful, and we had the kindest guide. He was very knowledgable about the swamp and its ecosystem.
