Not worth the cost of the tour

This tour was disappointing and not worth $123 a person. First of all, the directions states that the location was 2.5 miles after turning onto I41 from cr29. This was incorrect. I had to drive 5 miles further then 7 miles onto a gravel/dirt road before finding the buggy parked on the side of the road. The driver Duane tried to stretch the 4 hour long trip to justify the trip. In short he showed us two pools with some alligators, stopped to show us a "shy" porcupine and he jumped on and off the buggy to show us fencing posts. Needless to say, Duane's incessant country drawl chatter was hard to follow. All in all, I would not recommend this tour. Maybe it's better during the rainy season, but I'm not going to do a comparison.

Not as good as I anticipated

I was rather disappointed. It didn't seem a very professional set up. I know they're swamp buggies but the one we went on was in a bit of a state. One of the bench seats was ripped all the way along and everything was very shabby. There was debris in the seating area which didn't look as though it had been swept out for some time. Our guide was nice but it wasn't very structured and quite hard to understand what he was saying some of the time. We saw and learnt more on our board walk trails. Also if the day is on the cool side you will definitely need to wrap up - it gets quite breezy on the buggy and we were very cold.

This was basically a local guy rolling us through the woods and imparting knowledge from his having lived there. I would have liked more in depth info. We enjoyed ourselves though.
