    Every thing was excellent in this tour organized by Hagen/Banana Joe Tours : Hagen was very organized (which comes as no surprise in the light of his German origins) & very informative. The tour itself exceeded my expectations ; we managed to see a handful of aligators & birds, & I was expecting to spot only a couple -at most- if we were lucky. Highly recommended as a half-day trip from Miami.
