Well planned trip but unbelievably racist tour guide
May 2019 • Friends
The trip is well planned. At each place we got enough time to go around and see the spots. The Everglades has more to see than we originally thought.
The tour guide Nico, is an old white dude who cannot stop the racism from spilling from his mouth. He was constantly talking bad stuff about Native Americans and Latinos who have taken over Miami. Try and request someone else to save your sanity and avoid feeling unsafe on the bus if you’re brown.

Highly recommend!
Booked the trip as my sister had done it when she was here five years ago and said it was great, she was right!

Our guide for the day was Madeline. She was lovely. Very friendly and welcoming, she had us laughing all day and was really informative with all the different areas and parts of the trip. She also gives excellent restaurant recommendations and helps with the menu as well, pointing out some traditional dishes.

This was our first ever visit to Miami and although it was just one day we felt it was a great taster to the different things the city had to offer! This has been one of the highlights of our two week holiday and we would recommend this trip to anyone, the company and guide were fantastic.

Thank you for an amazing day!

Could be so much better
As expected after reading a few reviews this is a long trip which was’nt an issue. First stop was the Everglades which I was looking forward to as I love to photograph wildlife in its natural surroundings. Before the boat ride we were ushered into what I can only describe as a ‘small zoo’ housing a majority of non-native North American species that have been rescued/confiscated from private collectors. Although a worthy cause this visit was designed to drum up funding from the tourists and as I stated I prefer to see the wildlife in its natural surroundings. From there a chance to see some captive alligators and the chance to hold a baby one with its mouth taped up. After this was the boat ride on the Everglades which for me was the highlight of the tour as we were lucky to see one alligator where as other boats got to see none.

After this we set off for Miami. We stopped off in Miami for lunch before embarking on a boat tour. A great photo opportunity of Miami to be had but that was it for me as this tour consisted of a ‘who owns which property of the rich and famous’......boring blah blah. For some this is interesting however, for me not so. Back on dry land we were back on the coach and dropped off at South Beach for 2 hours. If you like the beach to laze around then this is for you. The bars along the front are expensive so beware however, the tour guide did provide a ‘cheat sheet’ to help you out on cheaper venues etc.

Personally for me I would have preferred the 2 hours in Miami City rather than South Beach. The boat tour was boring and if I had known what it consisted of I would have spent that time exploring Miami instead. The Everglades was good but too short and rushed and not alot to see if I am to be truly honest.
