“Great time”

We took the late afternoon tour that ended at sunset which was an added treat. This was well worth the money and the crew were very funny.

“Certainly a different tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is all about fun whilst getting a look at the key areas of South Beach and the islands in Biscayne Bay.

The tour is really well put together and all about joining in with the host who makes it really fun whilst seemingly being knowledgable about the local area.

My tip is to do this tour very early in your stay as places will be pointed out that you would want to go back and visit for sure.

Cost is good value and if you are not fixed to a time, I'd not prebook and try and do a deal on a tour at the point of departure, seems if the tour is nearly full, they'd be happy to discount to fill any seats.
