The tour is great for the price. The cruise was very enjoyable and the tour guide on the boat knowledgeable and fun. The bus was a little different, fine enough if you just want to see a bunch of Miami. We stopped at Little Havana for some Cuban coffee. Our guide ushered us into four businesses. There were no aggressive salespeople in the stores, but it was kind of off-putting. At the end of the bus tour, we were dropped at Bayside Market in a restaurant and given ambiguous directions about the boat tour mostly that the captain would come to get us from there. The bus guy gave the wrong times people were upset, boat guy cleared it up it was just a little annoying to eat quickly and slam a drink before boarding the boat. The price was very reasonable, I would still recommend it for people that like tours.

We booked the combo “bus and boat tour” through their website and got a discount. Save yourself time and bring cash. We came to the meeting point from Surfside via Uber at 8:30am and it cost less than $14.

The bus narrator was very informative and entertaining. You will stop in “Little Havana” for Cuban coffee, a Cigar shop and a burger place that sells the BEST Mojitos!!!! After that you will head to Bayside. The trip host will take you to a restaurant called Bavaria Haus. You have an hour before lining up to board the cruise.

Both trips were informative. We had an hour after the boat excursion to shop at Bayside Mall.

The good: fun bus ride and boat ride at a good price. The bad: when we got off the bus, we were told to wait and a guide would take the group to a lunch spot before it was boat time. The guide and group left without some of us, leaving us not knowing what to do. This wasted our lunch time, which was short to begin with. When we finally found our guide, he didn’t care. He told us what time to meet him to get on the boat. Then when we did as we were told, we found the boat full on the outside! No one told us when or where to board early, very frustrating. Also, the bus stops for you to get a mojito. After paying $11 for it, we saw the worker give half the $ back to tour guide. We should have bought a $5 drink next door. Also, our drinks on boat were $15 and $18! Just some things to be aware of.

One of the worst tours we’ve been on. As others have commented, I wish I’d read the reviews before hand. Our hotel suggested this tour and I now realize they get a portion of the fee. We enjoyed seeing the sights but the ‘guides’ were not very informative. The bus and boat people all emphasized heavily that they wanted tips- tacky in my opinion. The stops we made herded us to places that obviously had deals with the tour co- like the restaurant where we had to sit down to get our boat tickets! We didn’t stay to eat there but others did. Look for a better option! We’ve done hop/on hop/off tours in other cities that were significantly better.

The tour of the city wasn’t bad, the communication with the tour people was awful. We took a tour to little Havana, and drove around the city.
We stopped at Bayside was split up into two groups, 1 that was going to the Everglades and the other that was going on the boat tour and he then walked away, not knowing what to do we followed.
He took everyone to a German restaurant for lunch, he was kinda of pushing people to have lunch there, I explained I didn’t want to eat, I wanted to shop, I had to wait 10 minutes for him to give me instructions, he said I then had to wait for the boat captain to get my tickets. I was told by the boat captain that we had to meet at 12:20 in front of Victoria Secret, I was also told I should stay at the restaurant because it was hard to find (not true).
The boat tour was over booked and people were crammed tight on the boat.
I wouldn’t recommend this tour, they also try raffle off a “free cruise” on the boat.
As we sitting in traffic going back to get dropped off, I am watching the bus driver texting.

Wish I had seen all these terrible reviews before we booked this as they echo our experience. The bus tour was horrible. While my husband enjoys being driven around so he can look around, we didn’t really see much and the guide imparted very little information about what we were seeing that we couldn’t infer ourselves. On our drive through Wynwood it could have been any neighborhood as we didn’t drive by even one piece of art…and there is so much there! Driving through Brickell he told us the name of one building…a hotel which I could read the nameOf and he said it was “swanky.” Ok. He talked a lot about the drug culture and the Miami Heat. It was essentially a 1 hour drive with an hour stop in Little Havana where we were herded into a cigar shop, the tourist center, and another shop. It was hot and too crowded to fit everyone from the bus into those spots at once! Some of wandered a bit on our own, but not knowing the plan we didn’t go to far. It would have been nice to impart some information about the neighborhood and give us some time to wander on our own but that clearly wasn’t the plan of forcing us into predetermined shops. We then were driven to Bayside where we were dropped off. But like others have said, the caption was “missing” so we were herded to a restaurant where we could eat and wait for our boat tickets. This clearly happens everyday as the restaurant had it down and knew our guide. Our sandwiches weren’t bad. Again, logistical information was lacking and sketchy and most of us were confused about where to go when. The boat ride was better and we enjoyed the tour of the bay. It was mostly seeing the mansions of the rich and famous, but we knew that was what it would be and the ride was enjoyable. There was a lot of pressure for tipping the guides and the bus guide really didn’t deserve it. After the boat ride we just felt dumped off and kind of abandoned trying to figure out when the bus would be there and exactly where. We ended up just taking an Uber back to our hotel as we were closer at Bayside than if we had ridden the bus back to the starting point. Sounds like we may have been waiting for the bus for a long time so glad we did that.

We payed for the city tour and we’re told there was no hop on hop off due to Corona. Only off in Little Havana. Thats perfect for us as we need to make it to a next stop.

All of the sudden we are dumped at Bayside with the message to wait for two hours for the next bus…
Wait what??? There were already a lot of angry people at the bus stop who were dumped two hours prior and already waiting 2 hours. Lot of people who just wanted to make it back to the start point. The tour guide who just collected tips told us to wait 2 minutes but left with a boat tour group and never came back. Little rude if you ask me.

We called with the company and spoke to the manager, also the bus driver called the company. In the end we could hop back on the same bus to make it back. Total took about 20-25 minutes of waiting on the bus stop.
We loved the tour up till that point, wish that was better arranged.

I never leave reviews but this was so bad, I have to say something…I wish I had checked out the reviews prior to booking this, but we booked at our hotel solely based on their recommendation. Our experience was similar to what others have reported. They only take cash and give no receipts just a little sticker that you are supposed to wear on your shirt -ours flew off with the high winds… They picked us up late, rushed through everything, took us to a couple select shops in little Havana. We only had 25 minutes to spend there. Then they rushed us back in the bus and sped through the city only to drop us off at Bayside, and told us that was the end of the tour. When I approached the guide to ask about the ride back, and if I could have a receipt or proof that I could show for our trip back, she said there is none and dismissed me, all while shouting over the mike to “don’t forget to leave us a tip to compliment our salary thank you very much” ….If we wanted a ride back, she said we could take the 5:30pm bus which was about an hour away, or we could take the 6:30pm bus. We took the first bus back, but we found out that it only goes back to their office, which was far from our hotel…the driver said we could take the trolley back to our hotel. Luckily, there was another couple who also pressed the driver on this, so he agreed to take us both to our hotels. This was such a bad experience… I do not recommend this company.

You don’t see much of the city. It’s a tour to spend the money on the cuban community. They bring you to calle 8 and they recommended cuban restaurant for lunch which was not good at all and way too expensive. And I don’t mind spending money for food and I love the cuban food. But that restaurant is just bad…
Boat trip is only to see the mansions of the rich and famous.
Make sure to wear a hat and cover yourself. There is nothing to protect you from the sun or the trees…
We waisted a whole day :-(((

The tour should not be used to promote the tour guide's side business with the shops of Little Havana. Upon arrival at Bayside Market prior to leaving the bus the tour guide should hand out the boat passes and not make you feel that you must eat at the Cuban restaurant he also has a side deal with. Especially since there are many restaurants at the Market. This was the worst attempt at a tour I have ever taken.
