Read about the tour

As you can see, this is not an ordinary tour. MIAMI TO THE MAX! is a chance to have your curiosity about Miami - and your taste buds - totally satisfied.

The tour is especially great for families, foodies, photographers & friends.

The day starts with a rock'n roll bus tour around South Beach. Then we take a beach walk and get some exercise in the Art Deco District. After that, we cruise over to Wynwood and learn about 9 different types of Street Art. By now we're starting to get hungry so we drive over to Little Havana where you can buy lunch and learn about Cuban culture at the Latin street fair around Domino Park. Take our photo scavenger hunt on your smartphone.

Doing Miami To The Max! is an absolute must. You'll meet nice people and enjoy good stories, music, exercise, and breathtaking scenery.

After you finish the tour, you'll have a good understanding about the area.

And the day is only half over. At 3pm, you'll take a relaxing cruise on a double deck yacht to see the islands and celebrity homes. The boat has restrooms and a full bar. Snacks and drinks are for sale.

Such a great experience
Booked this the day before, plenty of slots so if you can’t book in advance I’m sure you will be fine. The staff were very helpful and funny. The tour was amazing. Got to see a lot of places I’ve seen before in movies and tv shows. We absolutely loved every minute of it. It’s such a beautiful place.

Excellent Experience
I felt absolutely welcome, got stuck in Miami traffic on the way to the pick up point and Monica from the company arranged an alternative pick up for me. The team was really friendly and helpful, so if you get to Miami I can really recommend a tour with them. A big plus- the driver took me right to the private home I was staying at to drop me off.

Our first bus tour
Quite a double act with Poncho and the driver interspersed with recorded sections.A brief walking tour of South Beach Miami, then onto Wynward walls which with all the fantastic graffiti art was a great surprise and very photogenic. Into Little Havana and a Cuban Restaurant for lunch where Poncho demonstrated his waiter skills very well..and the food was great too,especially the Cuban coffee. Ice Cream parlour for dessert and a short period to wander around the various cigar factories in the vicinity. We added on the boat trip to Star Island to see the homes of various rich and famous personalities.

Touring before our flight
Nice way to see Miami before catching your flight. Disembarked in the Port of Miami from our cruise in the morning and took the Miami Ultimate Tour with airport drop off. This was a great way to utilize the time before our late afternoon flight. The tour lasts about three and half hours with walking at some stops. Stops included, Miami Beach, Ocean Drive, The Arts District with lunch at the Cuban restaurant-La Carreta. Our tour guide Gus and driver Angel were fantastic and extremely helpful. There was also pre - recorded onboard commentary about points of interest on route. This was interspersed with some good relevant music. The company does a selection of tours , we certainly would use the Miami Tour company again on our next visit.

Daniel was awesome
I had 6 hours until my flight after leaving the cruise ship so booked Miami to the Max with an airport drop-off as a way to kill time and see some areas of Miami I had missed when we arrived. I really enjoyed seeing Ocean drive and a short walk on Miami Beach but the highlight for me was the Wynwood Walls. I love street art and the items found here are outstanding. Definitely worth a visit. Lunch in little Havana was delicious and I was dropped at the airport in good time for my flight out. Daniel was the guide and he was very friendly and open to questions and made the experience that much better.

A Well Organized & Quality Tour
Nice tour to spend the day in Miami. My wife and I were in the Miami area to take our young grand kids on a cruise. Our plane wasn't scheduled to depart from Miami until late in the evening so we booked the trip with Miami Tour Company to spend the day before our flight home. Our combined tour was the Everglades Tour and the Miami Boat Tour. We met the bus at the Bubba Gump pick up location. The bus was very nice and clean and the driver very professional. The driver stored our suitcases in the bus storage compartment. The drive to the Everglades had a nice narration describing things along the highway. The driver provided cold water bottles. Everything was very organized and we first took our one hour Air boat ride. Unfortunately we only saw two alligators and a few birds. Upon returning to the dock we then watched the Gatorboys show. It is a very short show during which we were told about Alligators and he got one gator out of the water and opened his mouth to show his teeth and he posed for pictures with his head near the gators mouth. The tour also provides a family photo and a photo with the grand kids holding a baby gator free of charge. We returned on the bus back to the pick up location at Bubba Gumps. I should note here that Babba Gumps is located in a large Bayside open mall that is very busy on a Sunday afternoon. This is where the tour kind of went wrong. Our luggage was taken off the bus and returned to us. It included two large suitcases and two smaller bags. We were told to grab our bags and follow the driver walking through the mall where we were dropped off at the tour boat kiosk. (Tour company advertisements at one point says that our bags will be stored and we will be assisted to a taxi. Another statement says we can take our bags on the boat.) At the time to go to the boat we along, with a group of passengers, walked through the busy mall, down two sections of stairs and up the gangplank onto the boat. Again this was without assistance with all our suitcases and two young grand kids. After the cruise, up the gang plank, up the stairs ,through the mall and to the taxi stand on our own again. The 90 minute boat tour was very nice, had good narration and we saw all the beautiful houses, boats and skyline in the area. Overall the Miami Tour Company provides a well organized, quality tour. I just thought cruise ship passengers should be aware of the suitcase issues. I would have given the tour five stars if not for the suit case issue.

3 Hours in Miami
Nice city tour, we were met by Jim the driver who started our tour. He soon picked up Pancho who continued the tour in English & Spanish. We toured Miami as well as South Beach and Little Havana. Lunch at LaCaretta was included on the tour. We had a very enjoyable 3 hours.

Super bus and good tour
The bus for this tour looked and feels new, there is a bit of walking around but its only 2 or 3 blocks. nice to have a 'free' lunch which is a good way to get to know your other passages on the tour. All in all, a very good day.
