Super City Tour mit tollen Photos und Celebrity Insights. Absolutes Highlight unseres Miami Urlaubs. Hagens Celebrity Insights & tolle Stories über die Geschichte und die verschiedenen Distrikte von Miami haben die Tour zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis für meine Familie und mich gemacht. Wir haben an den besten Photo Spots der Stadt gestoppt und einmalige Photo Shots gemacht. Ich kann die Tour auf jeden Fall empfehlen.

Well worth it! Haagan our driver was an absolute pleasure, he gave a nice detailed explanation on the way to the everglades and was super attentive throughout each step at the park.Our boat driver was okay but thankfully we got lucky and got to see quite a few gators and cool birds too!The show at the end was a great way to end a fun trip + big bonus was haagan taking our group to do the photo before the show so we didn't have to wait.Drive was way shorter than other reviews made out to be.Overall a great trip! Highly recommend!!!

Excellent experience and highly recommend This was a great tour. Hagen ( hopefully correct spelling) was an excellent tour guide he drove us to the everglade and along the way he explained the natural animals and plants that lived in the everglade. (snakes and alligators he even has a snake skin and rattler to pass around) When we got to the everglade the everglade tour boat captain took over and he took us on a tour of the canal which was ~1.5 hours long or so. (everglades is very big) We saw alligators, vultures, and there were a lot of bass or some fish jumping eating the flies in the water or minnows swimming away. You will see big alligators and there is the alligator show afterwards with Paul Bedard ( he had an Animal Planet show previously ) which I recommend you see. They have a small conservation of animals which they keep to educate the public because all the animals have been deemed nuisance animals and per FL law would have to be euthanized if not keep in sanctuaries. After we took a picture with a baby alligator included with package. I kinda pushed the time tables back because I ordered some food and had to wait for it but luckly when I got to the van Hagen said it was fine and we had plenty of time. I would recommend this tour for an introduction to those people who have not been to the everglades such as myself. The everglades is very large and you cant see it all in one tour also there were people with their private boats fishing and locals fishing on the other pier. Hagen stated that this is where trappers go to catch evasive pythons at night too. Ludwig the contact for booking tour was also very helpful to myself because I booked last moment the night prior and he made it all work out so please plan accordingly beforehand unlike me. 🙂 The ride to the everglade for the tour is about 45min +/- traffic. I high recommend all who read this to go with Banana Joe. The best part from banana joe was the narration in German too. ( so I can brush up on my German) 🙂

About your tour

If you are looking for a REAL adventure look no further – we got you covered! This is the ultimate tour for everyone that wants to learn a little more about the natural wonder we call the Everglades.

While most of the regular tourists only get to see the edges of the Sawgrass fields, we will take you deeper into the Glades than anyone else does. So deep in fact that we leave the sawgrass fields and explore the forests in the middle of this amazing natural habitat.

While we pass through the sawgrass fields that make up about 80% of the Everglades you will learn about South Florida’s unique Flora and Fauna. The most diverse and unique part of the Everglades is right in its heart where we will show you Florida’s primeval forest.

 

 

The majority of the states’ native plant and animal population can be found and experienced here first-hand.

We take you deeper into the ever flowing ‘River of Gras’ than any other tour company. See the hammocks, the sawgrass and its jungle of cypress trees and wetlands.

Our Excursion is taking you off the beating path to a native American reservation and to Florida’s most idyllic fishing village. In the midst of wild Florida, we start our 45-minute swamp buggy tour.

 

 

So, jump on board and explore this Native American Reservation with Banana Joe Tours. Plenty of fun for the whole family is guaranteed.

On the Swamp Buggy tour nature is showing its true beauty and you’ll have the chance to see some of Florida’s most uncommon animals.

The Everglades have much more to offer than ‘just’ alligators. If luck is on our side, we will be able to see wild horses (Americas first cowboys were from Florida! YES!! REALLY!!!), the endangered Florida Panther, bison, racoons, rattle snakes, black bear and lynx.

Some non-native species such as ostrich, anacondas, wild hogs and pythons have established themselves during the past decades and might be seen also. During a unique reservation tour all of Florida’s native poisonous animals will be explained.

 

 

Find out how humans imported plenty of non-native animal species to Florida during the last 500 years and why most of the tropical trees, such as palm trees and plants, have been hugely imported as well.

 

 

Of course, you will also go on a approx. 30-minute airboat ride which will take you deep into the green jungle of the Everglades right through a valley of majestic native cypress trees.

And if you are very brave you may take the ‘Nature Trail’ on which you can explore the Everglades on foot.

 

ATTENTION – if we pick you up at the meeting point in the Everglades the duration of the tour is 4 and not 6 hours
