My partner and I, and his daughter all visiting from London did a private 1 hour tour with a friend of mine from LA. We found River of Grass based on all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and have to say the reviews were all completely justified. Becky and Robert were brilliant hosts- Becky extremely helpful and responsive throughout our correspondence in the months before our visit and Robert a lovely, friendly and informative airboat guide. It was great to do this tour with Robert as a local as his knowledge and passion for the area showed through and added to our experience. While we saw gators as well as Everglades bird life, we understand now that it's not always easy to see gators in particular at the time we visited in July so we particularly appreciated Robert taking the extra time to seek them out, as well as their nests and to take us out for more than the 1 hour tour we had paid for.
Whilst we later also did the Shark Valley Tram Tour (which I'd also recommend) I really feel that this airboat ride was one of the highlights of our 2 week Florida holiday and something I would tell anyone not to miss out on!
