If you want a casual walking tour focused on plants of the Everglades, this is your tour.
Oct 2021
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 was our naturalist, who was very knowledgeable and accommodating! We enjoyed our nature walk, and our air boat ride with Fabian immensely. Great to get picked up at hotel since we had no car, door to door service very convenient. All in all, a really enjoyable morning, glad we chose Wild Lime!

We had the pleasure of having Darren as our guide.
The tour was the highlight of out vacation. Darren's knowledge, true love of nature, patience and enthusiasm made the tour informative and pleasurable as were the amazing everglades surroundings.

Truly looking forward to getting back for longer trips in the area, hopefully with Darren again!

Highly recommended. (Still amazed that we managed to absorb and see so much in one morning without feeling any hurry!)

Nice intro to the Everglades
Aug 2021
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.

Awesome tour operator
I signed up for this event I thought I would like the airboat ride the best but the nature walk was truly awesome. The knowledge of our guide who was a marine biologist was incredible in depth and breath and learning about the history of the Everglades and especially the Indians who lived there was truly amazing. We will definitely do another trip with this tour group.
Love the airboat ride too!

Fantastic outing. Ben (from Miami) was great. Knowledgeable, super friendly, helpful and funny. Picked us up right at our Hollywood hotel.. so convenient.
Clear and regular updates for pickup/drop off. Great communication.
Ben gave us a perfect tour of the everglades and made the day trip super easy -- no worries.

Half-day was awesome
Mar 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed the half day tour with Ben. After being picked up from our hotel, we drove ~45 minutes out to the Everglades for a nature walk followed by the airboat ride. Ben was very knowledgeable, funny, and accommodating, even providing some snacks and drinks throughout the day. We look forward to booking another tour with Wild Lime when we come back to the area, and would definitely recommend to friends.

Easy and Fun Way to Visit the Everglades
Apr 2021 • Couples
Ben was a great tour guide! Prior to our excursion there was clear communication for pick up and directions, which made our car ride very easy. We learned a lot on our nature walk and he answered every question I had (which was a lot.) I actually left my water bottle in the van after we left the air boat, Ben happily made an extra trip to drop it off at my Airbnb. He is awesome! I would recommend Wild Lime Adventures to anyone of any age that wants to visit the Everglades.

We absolutely loved this tour. Ben was great, and even though it was unusually cold we saw lots of wildlife including plenty of alligators. The airboat was fun, as always, and we got to see an alligator up close and personal.
