Why no double dercker bus?
The three main reasons we choose to NOT use double-decker buses:

  1. Your protection - This is Miami, it rains here. The sun is also strong. Not to mention, mosquitoes
  2. Safety & comfort - Double-decker buses do not have seat belts or air conditioning
  3. The environment - The old style London buses produce much, much more air pollution

In 2016, Miami Tour Company invested over 1 million dollars and purchased 3 new Mini Coach buses for our customer's pleasure. Our new buses offer a luxurious and spacious interior. The construction provides a smooth and quiet ride, while its maneuverability helps us access remote places.

Each vehicle is custom built to provide you with the most in comfort and technology.There is welcoming entrance, cobalt blue mood lighting, enclosed parcel racks, powerful air conditioning, 3 point seat belt for each person, personal cup holder, and the most advanced audio tour system in the world.

How much legroom is there in the bus?
We have reconfigured the seating on our Embassy Class coaches for just 40 passengers (with an average of 32 guests per tour) - creating 35% more legroom than on a typical tour bus. We also provide you with complimentary water and a tour map for your comfort.

How will I recognize the bus?
Our buses are white, with an orange logo on the side that says "Miami Tour Company."
