The city tour and cruise were great but the tour operator, Half Price Tours, were extremely inefficient so much so that there was a lot of wasted time.
The tour and cruise would have received a higher rating if it wasn't for the inefficient tour operator.
Bus Tour Excellent, Biscayne Bay Cruse was Bad. Italian Boat captain a little too cocky and the crew when disembarking big step from ramp to dock most people had trouble didn't help anyone just stood there with tip Jar. Also told us they don't get payed except for tips. hard to believe with the US labor laws.
Air boat ride was Excellent, Could have been longer.
On the Bus and boat tour would like for them to ask if anyone needs a Spanish translation before automatically giving the tour in both languages.
We were asked to arrive at the tour operators site at 9, then we were asked to wait a half hour for the bus, then we waited on the bus for an hour. Starting a tour by wasting an hour sets a really bad mood to begin a leisure activity. Otherwise the guide was quite good...
Very interesting bus ride-our guide was hilarious and he had the whole top floor of the bus in hysterics-low flying branches helped this too in certain areas-keep a tight hold of your hats!!!!
Cruise was lovely-very relaxing and a beautiful way to see where the rice and famous live
Quite like long day. Could have missed the glass blowing museum as it wasn't what I'm interested in.

The best trip ever. So my much fun and so much information given out by the guides. Please do it as it is great
Myself and my fiancé had a fabulous day so much to see with great tour guides the open top bus tour was hilarious and so informative as you can see from attached photo taken by our guide!!! The boat cruise was also really good - got to admit took loads of pictures and now can't remember who lived where - must be my age then finally the Everglades air boat ride and gator show was great I would highly recommend this tour - thanks again for a wonderful day sue and Damian
This was a great way to see around Miami in such a short time frame. We enjoyed our day especially The Everglades although we saw very little of the wildlife...The alligators were scarce but we did see 1 baby alligator. The show afterwards was great too
Bus tour was informative. Would liked to have been informed of more than 1 option for lunch. We were directed to 1 particular sea food resturaunt for luch prior to boat cruise. Boat cruise was excellent value, very informative.
brilliant well worth the money take plenty of dollars as there are many many staff members between coach and boat tours all of whom remind you they rely on tips, you pack a whole lot into one day but very very good
Good way to get an overview of Miami area. Everything worked smoothly enough. Must sit on the top deck of bus to see clearly. It was raining on and off during my tour and it is still worth sitting on top deck. Just purchase the poncho offered or bring your own. The boat's top deck is covered which is helpful in sun or rain. Too much emphasis on celebrities during the bay cruise, but I guess lots of people like that. I just tried to focus on the general sites and feel of the area. The Everglades airboat ride was a lot of fun, but I wish it could have been longer. But, from what I have read, 30 minutes is pretty standard.
Excellent tour to get a feel for the area and the boat cruise was very scenic. Favourite part of the tour was the everglades boat trip and the short animal show afterwards.
very good! no the cruise we were expecting though
This was a nice way to see Miami Beach! Our guide was funny and very entertaining. Definitely worth doing!
Doing what: Miami Duck Tour
Very good price for what they provided. The guide on the bus was funny and made the tour fun. The boat tour was ok, not very exciting. Love to hear more history of the town instead of just so and so live here and so and so live there.
A great day trip to see around Miami and the everglades.
I did feel that we were expected to tip all day long though.
Due to large size of the group over 40, it took a while to get the activities started. The city tour was not bad, got to see some amazing views from the high point of the freeway. Having to duck for low branches while sitting on the upper deck was quite an experience. The bay cruise mainly took you to see all the man-made islands and celebrity homes, definitely many more recognizable names than the ones at Lake Como. The Everglades airboat ride was quite fun, and the animal show was short but interesting. Overall, I would prefer the tour operator gave us a more honest time estimate both hotel pick up and boat ride meet were over 15 minutes late. I would look for a smaller group and a single language tour in the future.
The tour was good - I really enjoyed the boat trip and the everglades was great to see, even if it is quite short. The crocodile show after the tour was really interesting.
I didn't think the organisation of getting everyone there was great - picked up from the hotel and driven a very short distance to another bus. Before being driven for about 20 minutes to get onto a different bus. It was an hour and 20 minutes between pick up and actually getting on the boat in Miami, not the everglades.
The Everglades was an amazing experience, but te rest of the trip wasn't. It wasn't a really city tour. I didn't see much of Miami on this tour.
Advised tour started at 9 but did not start until around 9:30, for the Everglades part was told to be at meeting point for 2pm but tour guide did not collect us until 20 minutes later and as it was raining got soaked waiting , so punctuality should be improved. But other then that everything else was fine.
We expected to see a bit more on the Everglades boat ride. The boat ride was quite short. The rest of the tour was great.
Pick up was 20 minutes late. Took me 2 minutes up the road to queue in another office for another ticket!!!
Once on the bus we had Harry commentating, he was good. The city tour was ok, not really much to see. Then on to Bayside where we ushered into a certain restaurant of their choice.... I went elsewhere. The cruise was ok, not great!!!
It was ok but could have been better!!!
Did this tour because I was in Miami for a short amount of time and wanted to see the most that I could while my family and I was there. I was told that pick up from my hotel would be at 830 AM and to be at least 10 minutes early. We weren't picked up until almost 900AM. Spent the next 30 minutes picking up other guests at other hotels which was expected then we came to a stop for about 40 minutes where people were getting on and off the bus depending on which tour they booked. The actual city tour was only about 1.5 hrs. Then they took us to Bayside and had reserved seating for us at Tradewinds restaurant which was nice, but it's only outdoor seating. Something that I wouldn't have chose to do on my own since it was 95 degrees and very humid. We were seated and given menus around 11:30. We were given instructions to meet back at a specific location near the restaurant at 12:20PM. So that gave us less than an hour to sit down, order, eat, pay and wrap up any left overs. We felt so rushed that we weren't able to eat a majority of our food. We went to the designated meeting spot and the tour guides weren't there. They were across from where they said they would be. No big deal. They rush us to leave to get in line for the boat tour. The boat isn't even there! We didn't get on the boat until 1255pm. We were told that the bus would come back at 3:30 to take people back to their hotels. So we waited and once the bus came I asked the driver just to confirm that he was going back to the hotels, he said they were going to South Beach first and then going to come back around in the downtown Miami area where we were staying. I traveled with seniors in my family and although our hotel wasn't too far. It was too far for them to walk back in the heat and humidity, This tour was completely unorganized. You can't differentiate the tour guide from the people that are on the tour. The experience was very rushed and a horrible experience
