“Great tours - worth the money ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Leave the car at the hotel and let someone else navigate the bizarre traffic in Miami ... it was awesome to see how well the drivers navigated their way thru that craziness ... the beach area especially. You get to see a lot of cool stuff, you would never see it, or have the knowledge from the guides, doing it on your own ... well worth the money.

We took both the beach and city tours on the same day. You can hop on and off when you get to things you want to investigate more, your pass is good for 24 hours. Sit up top close to the stairwell, the guides tend to stay at that position a lot so you get to ask questions and get the most out of your experience ... the tour guides were some of the most knowledgeable and friendly I have experienced and I have taken many bus tours.

Hats off to Big Bus Tours, a very memorable part of our holiday in Miami.

“Most Hilarious Guide Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

My husband, some friends of ours and I took this tour on Sunday. We only had time for the Beach Loop, but it was worth every penny. Iliana (sorry, I'm not sure if that's spelled correctly!) was our guide and she was a RIOT!! She was totally un-self-conscious and was clearly having a great time giving the tour. She was engaging, got people laughing and of course knew her history and landmarks. She actually made it feel cool to be on this tour bus, which is not an easy feat! We missed the downtown loop, but we heard it was good too. We hopped off at Lincoln Road in Miami Beach and were lucky enough to hop back on with Iliana again.

I definitely recommend this hop-on hop-off tour as a way to familiarize yourself with the city. The ticket is valid for 24 hours, and the price ($39) was worth it, especially if you have time in the morning to do one tour and time in the afternoon to do the other. If you're staying for a few days and don't want to hop off the tour, you can make a note of the places you'd like to come back.

All in all, I highly recommend this visit for a good introduction to your visit to Miami.
