The itinerary was excellent and it provides a very good overview of the different nabourhoods of Miami. The pick-up at my hotel was also excellently done. It bothered me however that all the tour guides were so obsessed about their tips/gratuities and they mentioned that throughout the whole tour/trip!!

You get a comprehensive bus tour of the major Miami areas (downtown, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Miami Beach) with lots of information. Then you get a quick stop in Little Havana (we had 20 min). Of course we had to grab some food there. Had an excellent Cuban sandwich. Would have liked more time in Little Havana but we made the most of our 20 min (sandwich and potty break). After that we got a boat ride on Biscayne bay. The tour said yacht ride. Not a yacht. But it was a boat and it was a beautiful boat ride. Saw lots of celebrity homes on the bay. Then we got back on the bus for the trip to the Everglades. It poured once we got there (so bring ponchos unless you want to buy them there). The rain didn't stop us from having a blast. It started with an alligator show. We all got to see a teeny tiny alligator and then got to watch the trainer with a bigger alligator. After that, we got to go on an airboat ride that was one of the highlights of my trip. The rain was pelting us in the face because of the speed of the boat but it was still fun. The captain did turns and went fast and it was amazing. We saw 3 alligators and a snake or two. What an amazing part of the country!

Great tour. Few comments: bus was ran down, rain was pouring but - guides were great, we saw Miami in nutshell! Had blast at Everglades.
The funniest thing was that 2 weeks after we were on this tour we got a call to get outside of the hotel as bus is waiting for us! we would love to join tour again, but long time returned home.

With one full day before our cruise, we decided to get the most out of Miami and this tour did just that.. Though our hotel wasn't on the list of hotel pick-up, the CSR gave us a nearest location to meet and get picked up.. From there, we went around and pick up all other tourists and set off for Everglades.. The airboat was fun, the show was fun and informative.. Afterwards, we're taken back for the hq for the 2nd/3rd part of the tour.. The city tour was nice, as the tour guide was knowledgeable and keep us well informed and awake.. The bay cruise tour was a nice touch; the captain showed us all the celebrity mansions and pointed out all the attractions.. Overall, it's a great get-to-know-a-new-place kind of tour and 9 hours went by just like that..

Honestly, we were very disappointed with this tour. It was extremely unorganized...the bus always late for each spot...sometimes we were uninformed as to how long we had before the bus would leave...thus, I didn't feel like I could take time to look at the souvenirs. Also, the passengers would wonder off...at one point we had to waste our time slowly driving down the street, honking our horn, and someone else running into the stores to get one last un-thoughtful passenger. I believe that everyone should meet at one location to save all of us from riding for 2 hours before the tour starts. Also, the one driver seemed very rude. the last driver announced where he was going to stop first and even announced our location...then he drove across the bridge, missing our stop...which meant we, not only road to pick up all the passengers in the morning...we had to ride an extra 1.5 hours to drop them off...totally uncalled for...when I spoke up...he looked ticked off and then announced that we'd just have to be the last ones off!!!!! However, 1.5 hours into hour drop off...he did get another bus to take us home. We will never use your tour line again...totally disappointed. We also thought we would learn something...and we did...but not like we thought. The air-ride boat was manned by a young kid who seemed like he had only been working a short time...perhaps a few days...he provided little information so that we could learn...and he drove the boat dangerously, going fast, and making us go sideways...if we would have hit something...it could have very likely tipped over with his weight and that fan up in the air...it was a stupid way to handle an air boat...all for trying to give people a thrill and not learn a whole lot...all in all...yes, we saw some things...but not like we had imagined...didn't learn a whole lot about the area except we don't have any desire to return to Florida.

Four adults thought the Miami Combo Tour to be a great deal for the money and a great way to experience a lot of Miami in a day.
The pick up was prompt,clean transportation and friendly,informed guides.
Thank you to Mario ,bus guide and Gus,boat guide and office staff who were helpful
when arranging the pick up.
The Everglades AirBoat was exciting and our young guide was enthusiastic and made our trip unique and fun .Sorry ,I have no name.
Trip Advisor had some bad reviews that caused me some anxiety before we went on
the tour .
So glad we booked this tour.

We covered a lot of territory in nine hours. It was a great overview. The shortcoming is that since it really three tours in one there is no continuity from one phase to the next. It would be helpful, given only a half hour between the water taxi and the bus to the Everglades, to be told what the lunch options were at Bayside. After rushing through lunch, the bus was then late, which was annoying. The bus driver to the Everglades was not a guide at all (yet still requested a tip). It would add to the value of the trip if he could have spoken about the area.

This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to see Miami but doesn't have a lot of time. Loved this tour!

Great day in Miami. Miami is so busy you really need something like this to see it. The bus tour gives you a good general feel for the city and the boat tour lets you see the city from the water. The fan boat ride in the everglades is a blast. Well worth the money!

Talk about value for money!! This trip showed my friend and me everything we wanted to see in Miami in 1 day! The airboat trip was so much more than expected!! A fast thrilling water ride across the Everglades Marsh land definitely woke us up after a relaxing day on bus and cruise! Fantastic deal!!

The combo tour was really great. Our busdriver Harry was the best. He showed us many awsome places in Miami and told many stories about Miami's history.
Biscayne Bay was fun too. Lovely to sit in the boot and see all the houses off famous people. It was relaxing and enyoing.
Everglades are beautiful. To bad, we didn't see a lot of aligators, but the fast ride on the water was LOL. It was again a great tour of Viator with the best tourguides!!
