Our driver michael was relentlessly cheerful and enthusiast from the moment he picked us up at 6am till the moment he dropped us back at our accommodation at 5pm. He obviously loves driving his big bus and it shows. The tour was well organised, the stops showcased the island well and there was enough food for everyone and all dietary... More

We boated up river for about an hour, then stopped at the most beautiful place for a spot if morning tea. Our group then hopped into the canoes... More

I organised a canoe and boat tour through the "everglades" with the Discovery Group. Will, our tour guide, was wonderfully entertaining even though he was not working with much scenery. The canoe part was enjoyable too. I liked that we could just row along without a guide parenting us. I found the lunch to be simple and like a BBQ... More
