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.

We spent 3 hours on a flat bottom boat touring the islands south of Everglades city. We had dolphins swimming along side the boat. Our guide was the best. He spent the entire time relating historical stories of the area. We saw many rare birds. We went to a beautiful beach with endless shells. At the end of the tour... More

We birdied with Drue on a walking tour. We had so much fun we signed up again to go on a boat tour. His knowledge of birds is vast and he enjoys sharing what he knows about his passion. He identifies by sight, sound, flight pattern, and habitat. He has keen eyes and acute hearing. On the boat tour we... More

I was visiting a friend in Miami and took a couple days to visit other parts of Florida. I really wanted to see the Everglades, so I came across this company and they were amazing!! They designed the day based on my requests, and I started with a fun half-day hike with Tod. We saw a mink (only the second... More

The Everglades walking tour with Tod was an outstanding experience during our stay in Florida in March. It was the right time of the year: not too hot and not too many midges. Tod is extremely experienced and introduced us to wildlife in the Everglades. The highlight of our tour was of course a panther heading on the trail towards... More

It took a while writing our feedback since we had our trip to the Everglades in October 2016 - but we still revel in great memories! We hat a really great tour with Logan through the glades and fortunately we did see some gators, which is not very sure for that season. We could learn very much about floridian nature,... More

We went on a walking tour (5 miles) at the Fakahatchee Strand looking for Panthers. We saw lots of footprints (and did a few castings but no panthers), however that didn't deter us. Even though the hike was 5 miles (2.5 miles each way) it didn't seem that long because of all the information and nature was saw while walking.... More

With Tod's help, I managed to pack hiking, kayaking, biking, a swamp buggy ride and an airboat ride into a long weekend of great fun. Tod and his staff were super. I just told them what adventures I wanted and they made all of the arrangements, including booking the hotel and booking the swamp buggy and airboats with other operators.... More

We took private tours with Tour the glades in two different areas. My niece actually was the only one that did the kayaking. I tried to warn Logan that she would overwhelm him with questions about everything. And no she is not a child. She came back so excited from the experience. He was able to answer just about everything... More
