I really enjoyed this experience! The pickup was convenient and driver was nice. The tour guide/boat driver was so funny and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and ecology. He spotted a lot of wildlife for us! And had a very unique gator call (that surprisingly worked!) Really nice time and highly recommend this company
