GREAT!! But have a flexible schedule on the day of. Hagen was GREAT! Would highly recommend. However, make sure to keep note that your tour timing will solely depend on the timing they give you (which they will give you ~24 hours prior). Would recommend having a flexible schedule that day. The tour operator that I called in advance (before booking) told me that check in is at 7:30 AM, we arrived on time only to see that no one was there. Do NOT rely on that time, but instead rely on the time that Hagen or one of the hosts tells you.

Banana joe forever Tolle Planung. Von der Abholung am Hotel bis zur Ablieferung am Hotel Top,top,top. Am morgen ging es früh los. Hagen holte uns mit seinem schicken banana joe Bus ab. Von dort zu den everglades. Bis dahin erzählte uns Hagen viel über die glades, auch mit angreifbarem Material. Sehr interessant. In den glades war schon alles vorbereitet. Nach der Fahrt und der Show ging es weiter zur City Tour. Hier zeigte uns Hagen die ganze Stadt und noch mehr. Wo wir überall waren traumhaft. Wir sind Fans von banana joe geworden. Danke Hagen für den tollen Tag.

Nice experience with a very knowledgeable tour guide/boat captain. The boat tour was very cool. I loved our Captain (Capt Baby Face) as he was so entertaining and knowledgeable. We saw quite a few alligators and tons of birds, etc. Our tour guide was friendly and stopped the boat several times to make sure we saw lots of wildlife. My group also enjoyed the alligator rescue show. It was also entertaining and very cool -- plus informative.

Great Wir haben die Stadtrundfahrt mit Speedboottour gemacht und es war wirklich großartig. Viel gesehen und erlebt. Danke nochmal an den Chef.
Tolle Stadtrundfahrt in einer kleinen Gruppe Wir haben sehr interessantes über Miami erfahren. Hagen ist ein toller Reiseleiter, der einem sogar gute Tipps für Restaurants, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gegeben hat. Diese Stadtrundfahrt ist auf keinen Fall langweilig. Wir haben an tollen Fotosstopps gehalten und Hagen hat sich wirklich die Zeit für jeden einzelnen genommen, damit jeder ein schönes Erinnerungsfoto bekommt. Wir saßen in einem klimatisierten Kleinbus (kleine Gruppe) und haben oft angehalten und konnten Miami auch ein wenig selbst erkunden. Hagen hat sich viel Mühe gegeben und die Stadtrundfahrt auch musikalisch mit den bekannten Lieder untermalt. Würde es jedem empfehlen hier zu buchen, da man einen tollen Eindruck von Miami bekommt.
Sehr schöner Ausflug! Wir hatten eine tolle Tour in die Everglades. Hagen hat sehr viel interessantes über die Everglades (Alligatoren), aber auch über die Entstehung Miamis erzählt. Er hatte Schlangenhäute, Alligatorenköpfe, Bücher dabei, somit konnte die 1 stündige Fahrt gut überbrückt werden. Die Airbootfahrt ging eine ganze Stunde und wir konnten sogar 4 Alligatoren aus der Nähe sehen. Die Tour hatte uns so gut gefallen da sie nicht 0815 war und somit haben wir gleich bei ihm noch die Stadtrundfahrt für den nächsten Tag gebucht. Einfach empfehlenswert!

About your tour

Your unforgettable trip into the Everglades, the world’s most famous national park is about to take place! ‘Fast paced’ perfectly describes the 60-minute airboat ride through the ‘River of Gras’ that we hand selected for you.

On your trip into this incredibly beautiful natural habitat which is home to alligators, turtles, snakes and plenty of other wild animals you have the chance to make lifelong memories, take in what mother nature has to offer and take stunning pictures that your friends and family are going to cherish.

Our airboat ride takes twice as long (60 minutes) and is twice as fast (speeds of up to 49 mp/h) as the competitions.



On top of that our tour already begins with picking you up from your residence or hotel and our Everglades specialists don’t just give you a boring, pre-fabricated text for you to digest. No! Each and everyone of our specialists love their job and have nothing but admiration for the Everglades. None of your questions will be unanswered, meaning you’ll be actively included in this fantastic tour.


With the passage of the centuries the Everglades have constantly changed and had to face new challenges. Be it drying them out, constructional development, or the invasion of non-native plant and animal species from all over the world. We will show that we hold the Everglades very dear to our hearts, how we are actively involved in preserving this natural wonder of the world for future generations and how you can help and take action in preserving them as well.



The Everglades are a gigantic 7200 mi² wetlands preserve of which about 8-% consist of unique sawgrass fields. This is the best place for you to experience the incredible biodiversity of the Everglades’ unique Flora and Fauna.

After the airboat ride and the wildlife show you will have the chance to hold a baby alligator in your own hands and even take a picture with it. Stroll the souvenir shop for the perfect memorabilia!

Before we take you back to your hotel or residence, we explain how alligator farming has helped getting these beautiful animals off of the endangered species list and the drive back is your chance to ask all questions that haven’t been answered yet.



So, what are you waiting for? Book your unforgettable Everglades Tour with Banana Joe Tours and make memories that will last a lifetime!

On top of that Brickell City Center, a spectacular $1.2B shopping center has been opened recently and attracts plenty of shop-a-holics as well as architecture enthusiasts.

We will show you the mystic place that is prove that the Miami area has been populated for at least 2700 years, even though Julia Tuttle and Henry Flagler founded the city (that has never been a town) not even 125 years ago.  Learn about the Tequesta, their ways of life and the Three Souls that live in each of us.



Miami puts its spell on people from all walks of life and doesn’t just call you with palm trees, sunshine and beautiful beaches. Lincoln Road, Espanola Way, Washington and Collins Avenue, Lummus Park and South Beach all have an exiting story to tell. We move on to South Pointe Park and its infamous past.

Cigarette Speedboat top speeds will take you along Biscayne Bay, Fisher Island, Dodge Island and the busiest cruise port in the world – Port of Miami before speeding along Ocean Drive and out into the Atlantic Ocean.



Or take the relaxed and slower paced cruise along ‘Millionaire’s Row’ and put your eyes on the sinfully expensive mansions of today’s stars, celebrities and billionaires. We will show you what is left of Tony Montana’s ‘Scarface’ mansion and take you to the haunted house of ‘The Addams family’. On Fisher Island the elite is ‘living their best life’ and of course we will take you along this beautiful island. So see with your own eyes how Miami’s ‘Rich and Famous’ live their lives today and hear about the latest ‘island gossip’ – simply unforgettable!
