I would recommend this tour to every person I know. The direct booking process was extremely easy. Ben was very responsive and helpful in answering my questions to include around transportation because I was only in town for a short time. They picked us up right on time and our Guide Lindsay was wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable about the Everglades, local history and was very hands on during our Nature Walk. Lindsay also managed to memorize all 17 names of those on our tour by the time we arrived at the trail which was impressive.

I have been on an Airboat in the past but this one was much better being guided by a local from the Miccosukee tribe. Super memorable and wonderful day. Wild Lime does it best.

I have to say it was one of the best guided tours I ever did. Lindsay our guide was really amazing.
After our walk through the Everglades we met a ranger who told us that there is a python about one mile in the other direction. So all got really excited and Lindsay changed plans and we took a walk to get a look for the python. That was one of the best parts of the tour. After that we did an amazing airboat ride which was a lot of fun and visited the gator ‘Mama’.

I can really recommend this tour. It’s really worth it.

I expected to be able to hear guide at all times like with a headset. It was hard to hear with 17 of us. The airboat ride was nice, but when it stopped at one location it would have been nice to hear about the history of the are. He told us a little, but was very soft spoken.

Ben is the man! A great guy who provides a wonderful experience. We had a large group, spanning ages young to old, and he engaged everyone along the way. His knowledge is vast, giving us great insight into the history of the area as well as the nature and animals within the everglades.

The boat ride was awesome. They take you up close to the gators and allow you to explore tge islands the local tribes lived on. Elvis, the boat driver, has a special relationship with a particular gator and was kind enough to display that!

It was a great experience all around and would recommend wild lime to anyone!

We had a lovely morning with Wild Lime adventures on a hike through Shark Valley and an airboat tour through the Miccosukee lands in the Everglades. Ben was very helpful and accommodating with trip planning and making last minute changes to accommodate my family. First we had a walk with Ben through Shark Valley. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I learned from Ben, because I have actually been to Shark Valley many times before. I appreciated learning more about birds and alligators and that he was careful to point out the native history of the area. Then we went down the street to the airboat tour. He partners with the Miccosukee guide to take us and he narrates along the way. I was surprised that we stopped at a small village way out on a mangrove island. It was absolutely beautiful. He very thoughtfully provided us water, snacks, and ear protection for the airboat ride. I have a new love and appreciation of this area and I will definitely be back.

Fun fun fun! Lindsay, the tour guide gave us an exceptional tour around the everglades. Tons of information (that girl knows her stuff). While we were enjoying and photographing the wonderful sights of the canals and creeks, she pointed out the fascinating fauna that we could only marvel at. Then in between the air boat rides, the boat captain introduced us to his long time friend - Mama, the alligator, who was sweet and tolerant enough to let us pet her!!! Yes, I petted an alligator in the everglades - that's a story to tell your friends!!! A great experience, and highly recommended if you're in Florida.

Ben was a great guide and we had a awesome experience on both the nature walk and air boat ride. Definitely nice to get both experiences in one trip. His knowledge of the Everglades and his partnership with the Miccosukee Tribe was definitely a plus.

Amazing tour with Ben (owner) - knowledgeable, has a passion for wildlife, great teacher (held the full attention of our teenage boys) and went out of his way to accommodate our schedule. All expectations were exceeded. Would recommend them to anyone! The airboat tour and walk were the perfect combination. Would love to go back!
