Tour The Glades is the Only exclusively Private tour operator in the Everglades! Quality instead of quantity is our goal...which means our guests receive 100% of our attention. We can only do one (maybe two) trips per day which makes each one very special. This approach is better for the environment and hands down the best way to explore the Everglades....just you and your own personal guide. We provide tours year round and all excursions are led by Native Naturalist Guides that provide EVERYTHING you'll need. Fresh seasonal fruit, cold bottled water and all the necessities are included. You won't need to purchase any additional items because we've thought of everything! We are priced the same as the group tour companies but only do Private Tours because Private is Best. You are our #1 priority.

This was one of our favourite memories whilst travelling in the states and a big part of that was the level of customer service 'Tour of the Glades' offers. We booked a private tour with Logan who was extremely knowledgable, fun and friendly! The atmosphere...More

I'm planning to book a tour for my family this upcoming weekend. I just have a doubt... Is it suitable for a 21 months old little boy? Thank you for your attention.

I have a grandson that age. I wouldn't take him. The trip was a couple hours. That is a long time sitting in a kayak for a toddler. Mosquitoes were super thick. Off was effective. Not sure about toddler and Off.
Sounds like a great time...what is the price for 2people...4 people...for the motorboat tour and how long is the tour?
