Orlando Organized Tours Overview


Orlando has many choices for organized tours, from whale watching along the Atlantic Coast with Melbourne Beach's Fun Day Eco-Tours (1905 S Atlantic St), to a romantic dinner cruise aboard a steamship on the St. Johns River through Rivership Romance Tours (433 N Palmetto Ave) at Monroe Harbor Marina in Sanford.

You can take airboat rides through swamps looking for alligators with the Boggy Creek Airboat and Wildlife Safari Rides (2001 E Southport Rd) in Kissimmee, or sip champagne during a sunset hot air balloon ride offered through Orlando Hot Air Balloons (1461 Park Lake St) in Orlando.

What could be more romantic than a ride in a hot air balloon at sunset?
This is just one of the many organized outings available in Orlando.

Horseback riding tours to suit all skill levels are available through Horse World Riding Stables (3705 S Poinciana Blvd, Kissimmee). If guided hiking and canoeing trips are more your style, explore Wekiwa Springs State Park in Apopka with help from Wekiwa Springs State Park Nature Adventures (1800 Wekiwa Circle).

You might like to take a coach tour to the Kennedy Space Center, which is where the astronauts blast off, with Orlando Sightseeing Tours, or you could go on a moonlight history tour at Orlando's Greenwood Cemetery (1603 Greenwood St), visiting about 100 graves of notable people in the city's history.
