Hop on hop off
Jenny_C, Jan 2023
Great way to see all main attractions and get to know a little more about the city. Definitely recommend to down load the app as the audio does not provide the number of the stop and no map is provided as guide.
Really nice tour

Great ride
Elaine_B, Dec 2022
Was very nice ride. Enjoyed riding around the city. Saw more of Miami, was very relaxing. Saw many sights.
Very disappointed
Gary_S, Dec 2022
Broken guide earphone socket, no verbal guidance waisted day. Left bus after full circuit no time to revisit.
A Hop-On-Hop-Off tour that is of no use and can be avoided.
Murkoth_V, Dec 2022
The bus used had window glass with some type of built-in sun shades and so very difficult to see anything on the outside. The deck of the bus was without any covering and so very sunny when sitting on the deck. In addition the pre-recorded audio was not very clear. The driver does not provide any useful information about the items or buildings on the way. Overall, I felt it was a total waste of time and money.
A real history lesson on Miami
Sean_C, Dec 2022
I learnt so much about Miami I didn’t know. So much history in how Miami came to be as well as how much influence Cubans have and how Mitch if an impact they have had
Cindy_B, Nov 2022

First time in the city
Henry_W, Oct 2022
The historic info of the Cuban culture while riding through little Havana was interesting. The frequency of the routes was convenient The bus drivers are professional
Not a great experience
David_H, Oct 2022
I did the big bus Miami tour on October 15. It wasn’t a good experience and I don’t recommend it. The buses run infrequently, were often late, and were usually full when they did arrive at the stops. We spent most of the day waiting for busses that we couldn’t get on due to them being full. Waste of time and money.

Not a great day
Karli_G, Sep 2022
Sat upstairs on the drivers side outside seat. The bus jumped two curbs, the second time sending my head into tree branches- not small ones. I had paid to do the boat ride as part of the experience, but was injured and frustrated, so we skipped it that day. The boat would not honor my voucher the second day.
Was not overly thrilled...
Melissa_G, Aug 2022
Was not overly thrilled with the experience. The bus did not have air conditioning. Terrible. The bus driver was totally not into it, poor thing was sweating from the heat. Poor tour
