“Plenty of stops and significant locations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

This seemed to be the most popular Miami/Miami Beach tour bus. The busses were relatively frequent, stops were good, price reasonable, most guides very informative and entertaining except one who was a dud. We have used this company before and will continue to use it.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

We did the city and beach tour, both were great fun and the right way to get your bearings and see the sights. Got off the city bus and had lunch at restaurant recommended by tour guide.
Good value and good food. Then look round havana part before going to south beach.
We spent the afternoon in South beach, and then returned to downtown.
Next morning did the south beach tour again and stayed on tour all the way round. Excellent, tour guides very informative.
The audio was good on both buses. Would definately recommend this company.

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

This is the BEST way to see Miami. They have two routes one for the city and one for the beach. Your ticket is for both tours 90 min. each. You get to see everything, you can hop off/on as many times as you like. Buses come by every 30 min. or so. The 48 hr pass is only $10 more than the 24 hr pass, so worth it. You really need the two days or even longer to see and do everything. This is the way to go!! Highly suggest this tour!!

“Good Way to See The City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

We enjoyed this bus tour and usually do this sort of tour when we travel. It is a good way to see the sights and not have to worry about finding certain areas on your own. The bus did chug along at times and it eventually stopped running in the middle of the bridge over Biscayne Bay. The driver managed to get over the bridge eventually and off to the side. We got off and waited for another bus to come along and made it back to the pickup point. I would say that the equipment could stand to be upgraded. The narrator for our tour was very knowledgeable about all the areas.

“Great to see the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is great to see the city if you are only in Miami for a short time. We were only in the city for 4 days so it was perfect. Some of the the tour guys are better than others. We had a disappointing one for the city loop but a great one for the beach loop.
