Awesome jeep rental! Quick response to any questions, and extremely easy pick up and return of vehicle. So much better than doing a rental car and the jeep was super fun to drive with the top off! I would highly recommend and I would definitely rent a jeep again from this company!

What a trip! We totally enjoyed our day with Zack our guide. Enjoyed the boat ride through the Everglades and saw many alligators along the way. Zack's extensive knowledge of the fauna/foliage of Florida's Everglades made this trip interesting and fun. Also enjoyed the hike and afternoon boat ride. Lunch that was provided was delicious. Highly recommend this trip with this tour company. You will not regret!

Every aspect of EDS was outstanding! !00% rated "Exceeds Expectations." The Everglades is such a huge area and NP. We absolutely saw as much as one can see in a day. Don't DIY the Everglades. Rely on "Jungle Pete" Carradino and EDS. You'll see such much more and efficiently with the experienced tour guides at EDS.

BCNP is a division of The Everglades Nation Park. Capt. Steve’s is never to be confused with one of the typical 30 minute roadside attractions. For starters, you’ll never have to wait in line. There are none. This personal tour caters to your family and is both exciting and educational. Enjoyed by people of all ages.
