Just One Recent Review:

Wild Lime provided a first rate tour experience. They were sincerely interested in
their customers, and the backgrounds and experiences of both made available a wealth of information
about the Everglades, the surrounding area, and the history. The nature walk was the best nature tour we
have ever taken! A variety of alligators, birds, fish, and turtles were observed, and they had interesting
information on all of the wildlife. The air boat tour was exceptional as well, and I would strongly
recommend this experience.
