“Nice Tour”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

My husband and I decided to take the hop on hop off tour as a way to see Miami post-cruise. The tour was about 3 hours long. We decided to go the beach route up front and got off to spend some time in South Beach. We had no problem getting a bus when we were ready to continue on with the tour which then took the downtown route. We found the beach tour to be more interesting, plus with traffic the bus couldn't go so fast. At times the bus went by a site so fast that you were left trying to figure out what you were attempting to see. The tour guides seemed to be knowledgeable of the area.

“Nice way to spend the day, post-cruise”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We booked the Hop on Hop off Buss at the port of Miami after returning from a cruise, since we had some time to kill before our evening flight (and we didn't want to pay for one of the overpriced cruise excursions). For $49 per person, we got a 3-hour tour of the city, including Miami Beach and the city/surrounding areas, luggage storage for the day, and a shuttle to the airport- much better value than taking a taxi all around the city while schlepping our bags! I was really impressed by the tour. I've been to Miami several times over the years, but have never had a proper introduction to the city. The guides were knowledgeable and personable, and gave us a great overview of the area. I just wish we had been in town long enough to make use of some of their recommendations for food and attractions. The tour itself took about three hours, and we were back to the bus terminal in plenty of time to collect our luggage and get the airport shuttle. I'd recommend whether you're on your way back from a cruise or not!

“Best way to learn about Miami”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

In every city there is a Red Bus and we like the one in Miami. There are two routes around the city and we did South Beach in the morning and the other are in the afternoon. My favorite is South Beach with its art deco builidings and quaint shops and resturants.

“A great way to see the city”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

A great way to discover spots in the city if you've never been there. Two of our guides were great, however one guide didn't use the microphone provided and told passengers to use their headphones for the recorded tour.

“Great Tour, Watchout for the branches!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

We did the hop on hop off city tour following our cruise and prior to going to the airport, i wish i had more time!!! We did one fullloop of the city without getting off the bus. Larry Dent was a very knowledgeable tour guide with great little tidbits of information and reccommendations of where to find various things!
