We had airboat ride and visit to Gatorland in Orlando Florida. The bus driver was very courteous, helpful and punctual and there was lots to see at Gatorland so the trip was...
Happy with the tour overall. Would have liked to have seen more wildlife at the everglades but you can't control nature. One little suggestion though, if handing out survey...
Get your art on.
It may be "built for kids", but trust us, it's great for adults too.
