Fantastic airboat ride through the Everglades! Daniel was an amazing guide - he knew all of the best places to see alligators (we saw 8-10 of them up close), and he was knowledgeable in answering our many questions about the Everglades. I went with my husband and adult children - we all loved it and would highly recommend it!

We bought the ticket for 3 activities. That was around 39€. With that we did a hop on hop of tour, a salsa course and the Artechhouse. The salsa night alone would have cost €79 per person. So if you want to experience a lot, it is worth buying the pass.

Worked great! Enjoyed our Big Bus tour, especially our stop in Little Havana for lunch! Highly recommend Old’s Havana Cuban Bar & Cocina. Also, the Millionaire’s Row Sightseeing Cruise was fun for the whole family.

this is my 2nd ride in 4 months. i enjoyed both and gets better based on the diversity of the guide.

very well we saw an alligator it is cheap and fast as an activity
