I find bus tours a real highlight of any holiday I go on. It's a great way for tourists to get about and see the main sights and also the hidden gems of the area. Our tour guides were all brilliantly informative and all added their own humour to each route. The information provided was really interesting and learning the... More

Our family used the Big Bus to see Miami. We did the suburbs red route aAnd the Miami Beach blue route but had insufficient time to do try the uptown green route. The hop on and off approach coupled with a simple map and good guide audio presentation really provides a good quick overview of the city , it's geography... More

This was our best visit to Miami. Between Traffic & construction, it's hard to get around quickly. The Big Bus tour is fun and informative. The Double Decker bus offers three different tours of which you can hop on/off. We completed the Beach and city loops with tour guides Danny an Illyanna, Both were fun, upbeat & easy to understand.... More

We bought this 48 hrs ticket with 50 bucks and if you start before afternoon like us you can use it for three days. A short complimentary guided tour in Little Havana comes with that but we missed it. I personally enjoyed all three loops even though when beach loop bus went on south beach it basically stayed on streets... More

We booked the Big B Bus on our Carnival Cruise, because we had at 7 pm flight. Actually we booked Hop On/ Hop Off, but the Big B appeared instead. Fast forward through immigration- can you say 5 minutes from the ship's lobby to the bus? Bus took us to Bayside bus station, and we shifted to a Miami excursion..... More

We booked this as a post cruise excursion mostly due to the fact it would take us to the airport after. We ended up doing all 3 tours and loved it. The drivers were all very friendly and made each ride fun!

Did all the 3 loops they offered and the boattour. The red and blue routes are nice because it shows you all the highligts of Miami and Miami beach. I found the green loop through N-Miami not so interesting. The neighbourhood it goes through is upcoming and full of (street)art and designer shops. So unless you're interested in art and... More

We took for our hop on- hop of the Big Bus Company recommended by the hotel. It are very old and obsolete busses. In only a few busses you can use a headphone with translation. The first day there was a heavy rainfall. The water came by all sides through the ceiling of the bus.

We also were making good use of day waiting for our flight after a cruise ended at 8am. We really enjoyed it. We took the south city tour, Little Havana, Coral Gables, Downtown Miami - our guide was Abraham and he was wonderful. Then we took the Miami Beach/South Beach tour. Both were fun. Very convenient - they kept our... More

We chose this tour because we had a full day to waste waiting for our flight home after a cruise. The tour was good and did take us around the entire city. We enjoyed the tour, but didn't realize we needed so much extra money for tips. Don't get me wrong. I am always willing to tip appropriately and understand... More
