This tour is Cadillac of all Everglades tours I researched and heard about and experienced first hand.

Booking, communication, pickup, the Limos, tour guide, content of the tour, exclusive interactions, indigenous people habitat / island, snack, drinks and can you believe even big sprays, ponchos.. wow the tour operators did meticulous planning and execution with surgical precision.

Totally worth it.

Best part is that they employ professionals as tour guides - our tour guide Lindsay was apparently a highly qualified naturalist. She was a walking encyclopedia!

Yes, our naturalists really know their stuff. Most of them have degrees in wildlife conservation, biology and ecology and other fields. Some have advanced degrees as well, and are Florida Master Naturalists. We love what we do, but primarily that's the case because we get to experience it all with people like you, who have an appreciation for these wild and wonderful places as well. We hope to see you again one day! Thanks for coming.

Awesome experience. Great communication. Brian was a very knowledgable guide - if you’re into nature it’s worth going with a naturalist (not a naturist as autocorrect keeps trying to say!)

Was originally booked on the full day but I was the only person so moved to the half day. I think the full day would have been even better as it’s have given m more walking time.

Felt much more authentic than some of the tourist trap airboat rides although the walk was the highlight

Really kind of you to take a moment to let us know how we did. Thank you for mentioning your guide. We regret that the other tour was not going out that day. We sincerely appreciate your flexibility. Perhaps we'll see you again one day for the other tour. At least, we can hope for that to happen. Great to see it all with you.

Wow. I can’t even put into words how amazing our experience was. I came here on a school trip with 26 people, and this tour service made my trip! First of all, the service. The service at Wild Lime is impeccable, our tour guides Lindsay and Darren were the epitome of first class service. They drove our large group from place to place, kept us safe, and were an absolute joy to be around. Our large group was split in half, and I had Lindsay. Lindsay was one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met, and she was so much fun to be around! The whole trip was so well organized, and we always had time for bathroom breaks, food, and fun! We started our trip with touring the Everglades, and took part in a wet walk. We also visited the beach, state parks, the Hemingway house, took a ferry to Dry Tortugas, snorkeled, kayaked, and did so much more. We got so close with our guides during this trip, and the carpool karaoke sessions were amazing! This trip was one of the best experiences of my life, and Darren and Lindsay helped that! We always felt like a family, and have so many inside jokes already. Wild Lime tour service is something I would recommend from the bottom of my heart, and you would be so lucky to experience the fun!

I got a text and said driver was 15 min late, and then he never showed... after 45 min driver was still not here to pick us up. On the phone customer service said that being late is "part of life" and I was "negative," and that I needed to teach my kids to go "with the flow". I had my little wake up at the crack of dawn to be on time for this tour, so if a 6 year old can be on time, you would think that someone running an expensive tour could be on time too. But the worst part was customer service on the phone telling me that being late wasn't a big deal and that since I was negative they didn't want ME on the tour. Just like you being late is "part of life", a bad review is part of life too.

We are super friendly (hence our normally great reviews) and we specialize in logistics. We pick people up on our tours from several different busy areas day in and day out, and we do a really good job at it.. We have to. It's our business. But every once in a while there's something that happens (thankfully not very often at all) that is unexpected. We had a vehicle issue, as we explained to you right away, and we had to switch vehicles. Nevertheless, we still arrived to a hotel right next to yours (1 block away) to pick up another guest 25 minutes after the announced pick up time (not 45 minutes as you stated), and we communicated with you the whole time about it. We regret that you feel that the customer service was not great, but we have to say that we have never had anyone in all the years we have been in business treat us so poorly. Your yelling on the phone at our employee was simply uncalled for. Much of what you say we said is simply not true. We would never say those things. Your review is dishonest, as it also fails to explain the hostility you exhibited towards our staff. So, once it reached a certain level, we did suggest that maybe this tour was not for you. We felt it truly would have taken away from the enjoyment of others at that point, and that's the last thing we wanted to happen. The goal of going out and enjoying nature is to relax and soak it all in. We do apologize for being late. Like I said it doesn't happen to often, and it is inconvenient. But we did not want to cancel. And it wound up being a great tour. Thanks for your review.

They picked us up at our hotel in Miami, and brought us back, which was great. The van was clean and air conditioned. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and taught us about the flora of the everglades. Unfortunately, we did not see much wildlife. We saw a few alligators, and a few birds. The park has a tram tour, with a loudspeaker, and many bikers, so this could have something to do with lack of animals. I would strongly recommend good sun protection and lots of bug spray. Myself and many on the tour had multiple insect bites by the end. I would also recommend old shoes, as we did get our shoes wet/muddy. The short airboat ride was to a few of the Miccosukee islands, and our boat captain shared some of his experiences growing up on one of the islands, which was very interesting. It would have been nice to see some other areas of the Everglades however. I would also recommend keeping cash on you, as you need to tip the boat captain, and the guide, and some of us left money in the van.

Thank you for coming on our tour and for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate it very much. We are glad you liked the tour, and can understand your comments too about hoping to see more wildlife that day. The reasons you suggest were not a factor though. It had more to do with the weather that day and the night before being very hot and humid. And because, well, it's wildlife, which means we can't predict what we may see on some days. While there's not a lot we can do about the sun and insects in the Everglades, we do provide insect repellent and sunscreen to all our guests, complimentary. The water on the shoes part was an optional part and guests were told they would get them wet on that part, and that there was another dry path around to take instead if they preferred. Thanks again for coming out there with us! We enjoyed spending the day with you.

Ben is the man! A great guy who provides a wonderful experience. We had a large group, spanning ages young to old, and he engaged everyone along the way. His knowledge is vast, giving us great insight into the history of the area as well as the nature and animals within the everglades.

The boat ride was awesome. They take you up close to the gators and allow you to explore tge islands the local tribes lived on. Elvis, the boat driver, has a special relationship with a particular gator and was kind enough to display that!

It was a great experience all around and would recommend wild lime to anyone!

This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us so much information about the plants and wildlife. Pickup was exactly on time and very convenient at our hotel. There was a small problem before our tour, as the full day tour that we had reserved in advance had to be cancelled. But Wild Lime Tours went out of their way to offer alternatives and gave us a discount on this alternative tour.

Fantastic guides! The owner of the company was just great about communicating with us prior to the tour as we had to make some changes to our reservation, and then our tour guide was both friendly and knowledgeable. If we had just gone into the Everglades Natl. Park on our own and walked the trail there, we wouldn't have known what we were looking at, but she pointed out several plants and explained how the Native Americans used them, gave us a bit of history, had us such on sawgrass for water to show us how one can get moisture when it's unsafe to drink the water, and spotted many birds and even some gators. We had fun and learned a lot. She also made sure we had ponchos and blankets for the wind on the airboat, had water, snacks, and sunscreen handy, and took some great photos of my husband and me that Key Lime promptly sent us the next day at no extra charge. In short, everything was beautifully organized. Highly recommend this company!

Our guide picked us in the south end of South Beach at the condo we were staying at. She was very friendly and we had a text saying she would be a few minutes late. Her background as a marine biologist provided for an informative ride and walking tour. Felt very safe as all wore masks and hearing protection headphones were sanitized. Enjoyed the adventure and arrived back at our condo by 1:30. Snacks and drinks also provided. Elvis was the perfect person for the boat ride and was amazing seeing him talk to Momma the old alligator we saw on the stop to the small island. Well worth the money.

I was looking to organize a last-minute trip to the Everglades with my 12-year old son, and luckily I found Wild Lime Adventures online. The tour was phenomenal. We saw a couple of adult alligators, and some babies. Also a couple of snakes and many birds. The walk in the National Park was nice, but the highlight was definitely the airboat ride, which took place in an area where only Wild Lime has a permit, so we didn't see any other boats. The captain & guide, Elvis took us to an island where we encountered a big alligator who knew Elvis' voice and came over to him when he called. Pretty magical. An awesome day. Highly recommended.
