Very interesting excursion
Extremely friendly and accommodating tour guides. It was a miserably hot day, and the staff did their very best to make sure we were all hydrated, fed and comfortable.
Took my 12 year old who had a great time seeing the gators, reptiles, dolphins, turtles and great variety of birds on the trip.
Tour guides were lovely, very down to earth and accommodating, paying attention to the vibe of the group and making adjustments to how long we stayed in each place if the group was getting too hot or antsy.
Extra care was taken to pick up us and drop us off from our hotel and that was so appreciated, not having to worry about driving to meet up with the group.

So worth it
May 2021 • Couples
This is certainly worth the money! They picked us up at our hotel in a very nice passenger van and ferried us from place to place. It’s nice not to have to worry about paying for the various excursions. Not sure which I liked the best: the hike, the airboat or the cruise around the gulf looking at the various islands and getting their history. They give you drinks and snacks for the duration of the trip and the lunch was unexpectedly good. The guide can pretty much answer any question and is a good conversationalist.

Thank you so much for your review! It truly means a lot. We love spending the day with like minded people, those who love nature. We always learn a lot from our guests too, so it's usually a great experience all the way around! We hope to see you on another adventure one day. Thanks for coming with us.

Fun and educational
May 2021
Our guide Ben was excellent. We learned and had fun during this full day trip. Could not be any better. Definitely worth it and would do it again. We especially enjoyed the two boat trips. The air boat was exciting! We saw nature up front and personal. Great way to explore the Everglades in one day.

Don't miss out on this trip if you're down near Miami. Exceeded our expectations 100 fold. Stacey was the best tour guide ever. Her knowledge of the land and the native American culture was unreal.

Worth Every Penny

If you're debating on whether or not this is worth the money, it is! Do it! You will not be sorry. We had such a blast. Ben was awesome, as well as everyone else. Every time we thought the day was over, there was another surprise! It is a FULL day of adventure, nature, and history. We loved every single minute. Also, these people are SO nice. They were very accommodating to the entire group.

So glad you liked the whole experience. We are also happy to hear you felt that there were so many nice people you met along the way. That is something we are super glad you mentioned, because we work with so many interesting and kind people out in the real Glades, that this aspect of the trip becomes a major part of the experience, we hope. Meeting those from families that have lived out there for generations becomes part of the cultural experience of the trip. Thank you so much for coming with us, and taking the time to leave us this kind review.

These guys are awesome! Ben was our guide and took great care of us, always ensuring we had enough snacks, water and whatever else we needed. We learned a ton about the wildlife, saw beautiful country and made friends. We spent time with dolphins on the ocean, gators in the Everglades, and learned about the history of the people there. We highly recommend Wild Lime. They do a wonderful job.

Exceeded our expectations
Everything on this tour was done right!

The hikes, the airboat venture, the island cruise and the museums were well coordinated and fact filled. Not only did we get to see nature up close and personal, we got a good glimpse of the history of the native Americans.

Amazing tour!
May 2021 • Couples
Best thing we did on our florida trip. The “hike” is more of a short walk down a paved path. Our guides were very knowledgable and took us to many small local museums and we learned so much about the Everglades. They picked us up and had an amazing full lunch at a local restaurant called joannas I think? I recommend the crab cakes! Overall this trip is a must do!

Thank you for your very kind words about the Everglades trip. We try to put together full days of excitement and interesting experiences, but of course it's also about the people we meet in our groups and out there in the real Glades. No day is ever the same. Thanks so much for mentioning what you liked!
