Oh goodness. "Mani Miami" was the name of our city tour guide of Paradise Tours and yikes. Low brow humor and bad jokes throughout the city tour. The city tour only allows you to get out once: Little Havana, and the rest of the tour is relatively uneventful so not worth your time.
Mani Miami told us he doesn't get a dime from Paradise Tours and lives off tips. Before getting off the bus, he would hold out his hand for his tip (sometimes even counting it in front of the person), and then would give you the ticket you needed for the boat tour. Afterwards, he was furious and we heard him complaining that he didn't make enough tips off our bus and was 'shorted'.
The boat ride was fun and fantastic. There was the offputting request for tips on the boat as well, but they did earn it by giving a great tour of the millionaries' homes.
