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.

nice and easy pedal through the mangrove trails. Josh informed us about the aligators and answered us every single question we had about history, birds and other wildlife. we prefered an eco tour than an air boat and didn't regret!

My friends were really happy with the overall experience! The 4-hour kayaking tour through the Everglades was great! Logan, the tour-guide, was excellent! This tour is highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn more about the Everglades first hand.

We started early in the morning to the kayaking tour with Tod. It was a highlight in our vacation and we would highly recommend to everybody to do this kayaking tour (best would be combined with an eco boat tour). Thank you Tod for this memories, we will never forget.

Logan led us on a kayaking trip through the Everglades. He was entertaining and knowledgeable. We had a great time seeing portions of the Everglades that you can not access on your typical airboat ride. I highly recommend this trip if you are looking for something a bit more active to do and a little bit of adventure. Logan also... More

My husband and I had a great sunrise tour with our guide Logan. He told us a lot about birds and plants in this area. We have only seen a hidden alligator but it was still an impressive and stunning tour. We would like to go on this trip another time again (then sunset) The booking by mail was very... More

Took the TourTheEverglades Kayaking eco-tour in mid-November. Todd the eco-guide was fantastic. He had full knowledge of the ecosystem, the wildlife and the history of the Everglades. His tour was educational and provided one with a good understanding of the Everglades. For those of you that want to go one on one or perhaps with a couple of friends/family members... More

We purchased the combination offer, which includes a private kayak trip and a boat trip among the 10.000 islands. From the moment we booked with Lashaun untill the goodbye handshake with owner Todd, we sensed a great commitment and interest of all staff involved in the operation. Josh was a super guide on the kayaktrip. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Christine,... More

My wife and I (from UK) took a private guided tour with Todd, and it was one of the highlights of our vacation. (My wife thought it one of the coolest and most wonderful things she'd ever done).Todd was a wonderful and informative host & guide, - more like a friend than staff - and showed us stuff we'd never...

My wife and I did the full day kayak trip with Tod, out to one of the Calusa islands. Even though we did this enroute to a cruise vacation, this was our single favorite day of the whole trip. Tod was great! Personable, knowledgeable and just honestly a joy to hang out with. Parts of our path were partially blocked... More
