Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We did this on our first full day in Miami and it really was very good for helping us get orientated. There are three loops but we only did the South Beach one, and had a good day seeing the sights stopping at the beach and having lunch. The buses are open topped, but when we had a two minute rain shower they handed out free ponchos and everything was dry again in five minutes. The guides were good with lots of facts about the buildings and Miami in general, especially where films were shot.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

this tour was very fun and you can see the entire city in a day by doing this very great tour . The only holdback is the tree branches are very low and the tours and the city need to get together and trim trees on routes

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Good way to see all of Miami. Information was well narrated and interspersed with funny anecdotes. Only negative thing which is really no-ones fault was no airconditioning in the buses and only top quarter windows could be opened. As the weather was extremely hot and humid this made the bus ride very hard to take. I would recommend the people visit Miami in their winter not summer.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

I enjoyed the entire Tour because, you could get OFF the Bus just about wherever you wanted, I got off at stop 4 right next to the Mango's and near the Cleavlander, my favorite part of the tour as well as Ocean Drive as a whole!! The guide was very informative and very knowledgeable about his work and I could tell that he was having a great time and enjoying himself!!
