Tour was reasonably priced. Our tour guide Richie was a blast! He was knowledgeable about sites and added music and humor to the tour. Splash down in the Biscayne Bay was really nice. I loved how he interacted with people at the restaurants on Ocean Drive. Great time!

Long girl's Miami weekend. Four ladies and not a lot of time. We really enjoyed this informative, interesting, high energy tour. Our guide, Mayte, was great, funny and excited to sharing her knowledge of Miami. Learned about the historical beginnings of the area as well as the rich and famous who did or currently live, there. Driving into the bay... More

Even with only 6 people on the tour our tour guide did an amazing time making the trip interactive and fun. What a great opportunity to see South Beach by water and land. Tons of photo spots and a chance to really see things you quickly drove/walked past without a second thought.

This was so much fun! We went on land and on the water around Star Island. The driver and guide were so informative. We learned so much about the culture of Miami, and also the art scene. I definitely recommend this tour when visiting South Beach!

Before the tour begins, the bus/boat is on the road, waiting for it's customers.... but they will not let you on. Why won't they let you on? Because, at the last second before the tour begins, no wait, make that, 5 minutes after the tour is supposed to begin, they set out a life preserver on a tripod and want... More
