What To Expect

Your half-day, group tour of Miami will cover loads of ground, and water, and will introduce you to the key areas and most popular spots in town. You’d never be able to see this much of the city in a half-day if you organized it yourself, or learn as many facts about the area as you will from your guide.

The tour leaves hourly, so you have the flexibility to start when you like. You’ll easily meet your open-top bus on Lincoln road, and then get settled into your air-conditioned seat. You’ll see South Beach and downtown from the bus, then stop off at Little Havana where you can buy some refreshments, or cigars.

From here your guide will escort you to your tour boat, which also has food and drink available to purchase. You’ll pass several landmarks and hear all about them on your approximately 90 minute ride.

You can do some shopping at Bayside Market at the end, plus stop at another scenic spot for some photos.

Great Land and Water Combo
Manish_A, Feb 2024
Great Tour, made even better by our Guide Elvyn. Been to Miami a few times but this tour was exceptional
Amazing experience
Tania_A, Feb 2024
I was afraid because of the bad opinions it has but it was undoubtedly a very pleasant trip, our tour guide Ricky was an excellent guide and the route went quite well and the boat trip was impressive.
Miami City bus/boat tour
Eleanor_C, Feb 2024
Going to Little Havana and little shops, learning about the culture and history. Domino Park and Wynnewood Walls was cool. Had a great bus tour guide (Enrique Inglesias, lol) and boat tour guide. Had a great tour group! Great price for all inclusive city/boat tour
No complaints at all its...
Lawrence_H, Feb 2024

Disappointed tourist
SandraL_V, Feb 2024
Bad experience with this company. Never got to do the hop on hop off tour. We waited for an hour and the bus showed up after an hour and half and couldn't not take none of the group of 15+ that had been waiting longer than us due to the bus was full. Tour guide representative came around said bus was running late and then disappeared. Thank you for my refund, the only good thing.
Great time in the sun
Art_F, Feb 2024
The tour guides were great ! Gabriel , on the boat tour was funny and knew his stuff not to take away from the lady on the bus tour who kept track of everyone and did so as to make it a pleasant and enjoy time .
Bus not worth it
Christine_D, Feb 2024
Guide on the boat was great! Bus guide was confusing and spent too much time trying to be funny instead of informative.
Great experience!
Karen_C, Feb 2024
Great way to enjoy Miami, whether you've already been here or not! It's also a great way to have fun onboard!
NOT handicapped assessible
Linda_O, Feb 2024
It claims handicapped accessible. My husband with a walker will tell you just how UN handicapped assessible this tour is … especially getting to and from the bus to the boat.
Give both tickets upfront
Caroline_M, Feb 2024
A great tour, shared good information in English and Spanish. It is confusing getting your ticket for the boat ride. I felt forced to eat at the restaurant because I couldn't leave until I got my boat ticket.
William_W, Feb 2024
The tour guides were excellent. They were knowledgeable, funny, courteous, and very accommodating. The drivers were excellent, we felt safe on the buses and the boat. The only issue we had was the fact that the office staff, at 305 Lincoln Road, Miami, for your company made us all go to Ross’ department store to use their bathroom. I think a company that serves so many people who are willing to pay any amount for your services should at least have bathrooms for those same people. We were treated very disdainfully at Ross’ and rightfully so, we were not there to shop. Please cater to your customers as they are your bread and butter. Thank you
No compensation for being delayed 1.5hours, and then stranded w/no transportation after boat ride!!
Betty_C, Feb 2024
First of all it was a bad weather day, but the tour bus was1.5 hours delayed, the staff were not helpful. There was no compensation during the 1.5 wait, a bottle of water would have b even helpful, or a somewhere to sit. When we finally got on the tour, and the boat ride, after the boat ride, there was no one to meet us or transportation. People w/small children were at a loss. We had to get our own transportation back ($20.00). This was a disaster trip.
Disappointed of this third party ways and no respect to people's struggles they put you through.
Nene_F, Feb 2024
The office keep over booking the tour a d keep bumping us ro the next. We finally got to the last od the day and they told us no more seats for us even though I called to make sure our names were on that list. Bad communication within the staff made me miss my flight and had to get another night hotel in Miami. ..very disappointed.
Bad experience
Rafik_C, Feb 2024
During our short stay in Miami , my family and I chose this package ( bus and cruise ) to discover the city highlight's. We were 11 people including 3 kids . The bus trip was very disappointing, the sightseeing was very basic and not very interesting. The worst part was the guide that was focus only on pushing us to visit specific stores and restaurants. Obviously he was payed to bring tourists. But the worst was the lack of communication when we finished the bus tour. The information about the cruise wasn’t clear and we had been literally dropped out at the port and pushed in a cubain restaurant to eat without clear explanation about who is gonna be our contact to take the boat. The guide was awful and not respectful. At the end we figured out how it works and we had a better experience during the cruise. Honestly not recommended experience package.
OK, but wouldn’t recommend.
Grant_M, Feb 2024
Semi-interesting, relatively inexpensive tour set up to run you through some chummy businesses and restaurants in order to extract more money. Bus guide was a fun guy, if not overly professional. Boat tour was ok - saw some interesting waterfront mansions. But please turn down the PA system - it took away from the experience 😵‍💫 There seemed to be some sort of shady “contest” on board - time share scam? Customer service in the office was lacking. “Cash only” business on site 🤔
Was an excellent tour and excellent day
Melissa_K, Feb 2024
We loved this tour, gave us so much insight!! The tour of Miami was wonderful and we so enjoyed the cruise of Miami was well worth it to me, I would do it again!!
Melissa_R, Feb 2024
Pablo was an excellent tour guide. He made sure that everyone got on/off the bus safely and also made the tour entertaining
Awesome experience Loved the tour.
Marilou_d, Feb 2024
The food and the tour guide Helena was terrific , friendly, knowledgeable and very good and likeable young lady. My wife and I had a great time and will recommend this tour it was excellent. Muchas gracias Helena.
Bus👎 Cruise 👍
Mary_L, Feb 2024
We picked up the bus on Lincoln and had an interesting tour but when we were dropped in Little Havana for a break the communication broke down about what time to be back to board the bus for the trip to Bayside for the cruise. Four of us were left behind even though we were back at the time indicated. We ended up taking a Lyft to Bayside to get the cruise. The boat cruise was awesome and we highly recommend it.
Nice but needs a little updating
Stephen_V, Feb 2024
The tour was nice but the tour guides microphone kept cutting out so it was very hard to hear him. It would have been helpful to have known that we were going to have an hour to eat lunch in between the bus tour and boat tour. Also there is nowhere to stop for a restroom break.
