The pickup was easy, did not have to wait. Once at the location the organization was amazing. You check in, are given a wrist band and then you sit down according to your wrist band and the time of your reservation. Captain Aron was funny and made the tour unforgettable.

It was a lot of fun except for this wailing brat next to me. Not the fault of the tour guide though. We saw some crocs, wild pigs, snakes and egrets. The weather was lovely and the 2 hour swamp ride was worth it.
