Enjoyable, relaxing tour. Our bus driver provided interesting commentary on the way to the tour, and the boat tour guide kept us interested with his knowledge and humor. The adults and teenagers in our group all had a great time. We saw gators, raccoons, snakes, and several birds. Also interesting homes on the water.
