I've been in Miami before and couldn't wait to leave because of the traffic. The Combo Tour allowed me to see the wonderful sights from the comfort of a bus and boats. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared great details that added interest to the many sights we visited. I have friends traveling to Miami next week and I will highly recommend this tour.

The trip to the Everglades was fantastic and a true highlight. Also the harbour boat tour was very interesting. The city tour was very enjoyable and Al was an entertaining guide. I liked particularly Little Havanna.

Fit a lot into one day. Good deal for everything you get to see. Be prepared to have tips expected for every leg of the trip Miami Tour, Bay Cruise, Everglades Transfer, Everglades Boat ride, and Everglades Gator Show.

The trip was very well organized with all the pick-ups and tours and the combination of city sightseeing, boat cruise and airboat tour was perfect for everyone wanting to see as much as they can during one day. Our tour started off at 9:30am and ended around 5pm back at the meeting point. However, I would suggest everyone to arrive at least half an hour earlier because there is a check-in procedure with your viator voucher you will have to check-in and get a voucher for the tour from the operator which can take quite some time with loads of people wanting to get a ticket.
All in all it was a great day and experience and I would recommend it to everyone staying in Miami for just a view days!

This was a WONDERFUL all day tour. I was in Miami for one day and decided to take this tour.
PART 1 - I was picked up at my hotel in the morning and taken back to the Tour Office where we boarded a double decker bus and proceeded to Tour South Beach, Miami Beach, downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and Little Havana. We saw beautiful Art Deco architecture in South Beach, huge mansions, the Miami city skyline, and heard about the art, music, diverse population, famous residents and cosmopolitan mystique that make up Miami. We stopped at a Cigar Store in Little Havana and had an opportunity to purchase cigars not necessary for me because I had just returned from Cuba via Friendly Planet Tours awesome experience.
PART 2 - We were dropped off at Bayside Marketplace where we had lunch at our own expense and some free time. After lunch we were directed to a boat where we took a Tour around Biscayne Bay. During the Tour we were able to see the beautiful Miami Skyline and see homes of the rich and famous. Lots to see and very relaxing.
PART 3 - After the boat tour we boarded a bus to go to the Everglades, where we got on an airboat and flew up and down the Everglades. The Boat driver provided a full narration of the ecosystem. We saw a few alligators and native flora. Thrilling..
PART 4 - After the boat ride we were treated to an alligator wildlife show filled with crocodilian exhibits. We were able to take a picture with an alligator after the show. Nice.
After that, the Tour company dropped us off at the HotelI waited on my Hotel Shuttle and proceeded to the Airport to go home. I had a GREAT DAY!!!!! Enjoyed every part of this package tour. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

This excursion gave us an overview of the whole area and we enjoyed Little Havana. We ended up coming back from our cruise and staying at the Majestic in the art deco district so we could walk around.

During a recent trip to Miami, Florida, I went on Viator's Miami Combo Tour: City Sightseeing, Biscayne Bay Cruise, and Everglades Airboat Ride. I don't usually go on tours as I like to do my own thing and sightsee at my own pace, however, I LOVED IT. I had an awesome time. It was well organized. I was thoroughly entertained. And, the price was right 67.00. I'm hooked. I will definitely use Viator again. MY ONLY COMPLAINT: I did not like being forced to have my picture taken before the Biscayne Bay cruise. I was casually dressed and I didn't want the photographer to take my picture. A crewmember stated that it was for safety reasons but, I believe that the staff wanted passengers to purchase those pictures afterwards. I asked to have my photo deleted. Other than that, I highly recommend Viator.

Having three different tours in one day is a great way to see Miami! We especially enjoyed the Everglades.
