“Everglades National park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

After spending 5 days with Greg I can fully appreciate the value of having him guide an outing. Greg new where the best places to fish and set up camp were and was great help in determining what to pack for a 5 day self supported trip. some of the highlights of this adventure were having sharks chase bait fish up on the beach within 3 feet of us on Cape sable, Paddling with gigantic sea turtles and pods of dolphins, and fantastic fishing and wildlife viewing. This was the first time I have gone on an outing with a professional guide and I have learned that the value of a good guide is indispensable asset for paddling unfamiliar ares. I recommend this company to anyone looking to hire a guide service.

Would be hard to find a better guide and food, anywhere in th US.
Have not taken an international trip, but others I know have given Greg's international trips equally enthusiastic recommendations.

All my trips with Greg Pflug are awesome. Greg is a great leader, knowledgeable and responsible. He makes one feel safer
And adventurous at the same time. Greg is a renaissance man, one of the few.
Anyone would profit from traveling with him.

“Amazing, awesome, gorgeous... can't wait to do it again.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

"Lake Powell Kayaking From the Mother Ship" -- the latest in a list of many trips we've taken with Adventures in Florida. If you can only take one trip with AiF, this is the one. AiF rented a houseboat, and we plied the waters from Bullfrog Marina to Defiance House and into a myriad of slot canyons. With the houseboat securely docked each day, the kayaks were unloaded and we paddled up into the most amazing and humbling rock formations you could imagine. What a way to see this national treasure, up close and personal. Sleeping under the stars on the sundeck, or a glass of wine or beer on the bow..

Of course, AiF's leaders (Greg and Phyllis) were the icing on the cake. Delicious meals, expert guides, no worries about equipment or safety. Everything you need other than your own personal belongings, is provided. The kayaks are expedition quality but easy to handle for beginners as well. The food, mostly inspired by the American South, had a southwestern flair this time as well. Always local and fresh ingredients.

AiF provides the intimacy of a small group adventures but at a truly affordable price that puts the bigger companies to shame.

A once-in-a-lifetime adventure that I plan on doing again as soon as I can!

“HONEYMOON HIGHLIGHT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2011

We were looking for something to do on the last day of our Honeymoon before returning to the UK and having exhausted ourselves at the Malls, Theme parks and other 'tourist' hotspots we were really happy when I came across Adventures in Florida on the web. We are very fond of the Outdoors and seeing wildlife so this was right up our street. Greg, the owner, and his assistant Guide, Scott ,were absolutely lovely people. Professionsal and knowledgable with a good sense of humour too.
My husband or I have never Kayaked and Scott helped us with the patience of a saint!
We saw Alligators, birds and were privileged to see a pair of mating bald Eagles. Superb. A lovely light lunch was provided too.
GREAT value highly recommended. Young or old- this is a fantastic day out in the real Florida. Next time we are back in Florida, we will definitely be booking more trips with Adventures in Florida!!! Garreth & Meg Townsend, UK
