A fantastic day! - This self-guide tour was perfect. We downloaded it in advance which was important as we lost signal once we were deep into the Everglades. The narration was perfect - lots of information to listen to about the history of the area and what to look out for. Thanks to the tour we saw many egrets, alligators, a crocodile, turtles, manatees, ospreys and a spoonbill. A truly memorable day.

Helpful for first visit to the Everglades - The app did a great job of coordinating the narrative with our location on the tour. It had a lot of good information, including the history of the Everglades. It was a good tour for a first time visit to the Everglades or for someone who hasn't researched much information about the Everglades.

Audio tour fun - The audio tour of the Everglades was informative and fun. We learned about the history and about the current ecosystem. There were a couple of mistakes. I wanted to hear more about Marjory Stoneman Douglas. We only had time to get to Story 25. Had to turn back.

Self Guided Audio Tour worth it! - The starting point address on Viator website was incorrect so it took us a few extra minutes to get to “City Hall on your right”. Was easy to follow along and we took advantage of a few side tours - we were travelling with our dog - dogs are not permitted on the trails. I did try and search, if dogs are permitted, prior to our trip but could not find anything. Fortunately we have an EV and we could leave the AC in our car on, for the dog, while we took a couple of 10-15 minute strolls along certain board walks/trails. The info was interesting and we learned a few things about the Everglades. We did get out of sync just before Snake Bight but were able to scroll and get back online. If you have never been to the Everglades National Park we would recommend.
