Totally worth the money , I would definitely recommend this if you're looking to do some sightseeing play.
Major disappointment
, Mar 2020
The absolute worst, most unorganized tour I’ve ever experienced. This company came highly recommended from friends, I would steer all away! No one had any idea about pick up locations, bus transfers, etc. Each person just kept “passing the buck” whenever we asked a question about buses, locations, or timing. Tour guide was a joke in providing information (just kept repeating the same), driver kept riding over curbs, then requested to tip the driver when the tour was finished! We were told we wouldn’t have a problem picking up the last bus back to Little Havana after the Bayside tour, then when we arrived for the transfer we asked where to get the next bus and were once again sent off to ask 4 more people. None of them had an answer until we reached the 5th person who told us that the last one to Little Havana left already and we were out of luck. So they abandoned us (our group of 6), as well as another 8-10 ppl. We were forced to grab an Uber back to our starting location. So not only did we spend $300 for a tour that was disappointing, but then we had an added expense of transportation because of an error on the company’s fault. I emailed the company about it three days ago and have heard nothing back (no surprise there). Poor customer service, poor tour, poor communication! Do yourselves a favor, grab a bike or scooter to rent or walk around yourself, save a ton of money an headache! Would NEVER recommend this company to anyone traveling.
Great Sights, not much else
, Feb 2020
Pretty decent trip, I had a problem (like many others) with finding the pickup location. There is not much direction at the Bayside stop on where to be picked up initially. Also the audio on board is hard to hear.
Okay tour
, Feb 2020
1. I got the app and pickup spot is not the same as where the sign is so we wasted time looking for it. 2. They never asked to see verification that we purchased tickets even though we offered twice. 3. It is confusing switching buses and due to their mistake we had to get back on the same one to continue tour. 4. The printed map clearly shows that we were supposed to go in front of The Fountain Bleu and they just went past one side- no construction and it was not blocked. It was the main thing I wanted to see.
Miami heat
, Feb 2020
Definite pluses AND minuses. We were able to board in Little Havana then change at the main stop onto a different bus. Maybe because of that, we never got a good orientation, map, etc. headphones were supplied, but not all the jacks worked and the tour guides sounded garbled. Guides, we had three, were informative, but one talked so much about needing tips, it was annoying. Sometimes the bus stopped for several minutes for no apparent reason or explanation and it got quite hot. Was Highly recommend sunscreen, water and hat that can withstand high winds. Our time was very limited so it was a good way to see things, but could have been better organized.
Terrible Service
, Feb 2020
Bus was late at pick up area by over an hour. When bus arrived completely full . Did 90% of trip inside of bus. It started raining everyone came inside. You think you would be dry! No, the bus was leaking everywhere. Couldn't sit on any seats because water was dripping everywhere on bus. When you try to call the number posted , you get no answer except a answering machine that is full. Very disappointing. Obviously they had knowledge of bus leaking but still use it. It was so bad small children were crying seeing water pour in everywhere on bus.

Save your money.
, Feb 2020
The bus was over an hour late even though they say buses every 30 minutes. Bus was full so we only got to go up half way on tour. It started raining and we all came down. The bus leaked everywhere . Couldn't sit because water was pouring in around the edges. Not small drips but, everyone was complaining . There was more water coming inside then outside. They had knowledge of this obviously but still used bus. Calling the number posted only got you a mailbox that was full and couldn't leave a message.

Couldn’t find the stops
, Jan 2020
We were unable to use the tickets as we could not find the stops. We were staying in the Coconut Grove area so we went to Grand Ave by Florida Street where we have boarded it on previous visits to Miami. There was no sign so I asked the business across the street and they said yes, that was the correct stop. After waiting over half an hour I went into the Mayfair Hotel and asked them. They said no it had moved to 27th by Tigertail. So we tried to find it with no luck. I wanted to go to a store on Collins Ave. and knew there was a stop at 4833 Collins Ave. So took a cab to Collins Ave, visited the store and then waited at 4833 Collins Ave for the bus. There was a sign indicating this was the correct stop. After waiting half an hour and no bus, asked at a hotel there, they said it had been moved down the street. Never found it, so finally gave up and took a cab back to our hotel. None of the cab drivers seemed to know where the stops were either.

The tour guide had a great sense of humor and did a great job! We learned a lot about the city and we did the boat tour. I would highly recommend both as a package. We use Viator for all our bookings.

I had a great time on bus tours. It took me to Bayside Marketplace where I did speedboat. I loved Little Havana too. It has nice shops and places to eat. The guides were all really fun and helpful too
