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, and 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.

About the bus:

The tour is conducted using a new, 40 passenger Temsa motor coach bus, with safety belts, air-conditioning, and luggage storage.

Good way to see Miami shore line.
We arrived early and were able to get earlier ship. You sit in plastic chairs on upper covered deck with open windows.Once out of port you can go outside and below to lower deck where there are tables and chairs. Upper deck has a cash bar and limited snack. chips and soda, water. Cocktails were $8-18. Tour guide was very good. Explaining in English and Spanish what you were seeing. Lots of celebrity homes. Nice views of the Miami coast.90 minutes. runs on time. They take you picture before you get on the boat. $30 to purchase when you get off. Don't forget to Tip your tour guide. Tip box is when you get off.There was a raffle for a free trip. its a timeshare type trip. so if you don't want calls and a sales pitch don't enter. Have Fun. Watch the parking garage video a few times before you go. Lots of cars dropping off so you can miss the turn for parking garage. I did. Pay for your parking before you return to your car. Cash or credit. If you don't get a receipt is ok- you can scan your entry ticket.You must pay. We paid $5.00. Did boat tour and got ice cream at Hagen Daz.$15 for a small cup and 1 cone. Ouch. Lots of shops right there also restaurants.

Miami Full Day Combo Tour
We stayed in Miami for 3 nights before a cruise. This full day trip was excellent value for money and includes a city tour going to Little Havana, Wynwood and much more, then a trip to the Everglades with an airboat ride, it then finishes in Miami with a boat trip to see the homes of the celebs. Our excellent driver was Barnaby. He is very caring and professional with a great sense of humour and full of useful tips and information. If you have limited time and want to orientate yourself with the city this is the way to go.

Great introduction to Miami
This is a great tour to see a nice variety of places in Miami. We did have to meet around 9:30 am so the bus could pick up people at South Beach Hotels by 10am, but that was OK as we heard some extra information on the way over. We had about a 20-30 minute walk around the art deco area of South Beach. We had about a half hour at Wynwood Walls (which was plenty for us) and spent about an hour in Little Havana. We had plenty of time to enjoy a Cuban lunch there. Tour guides were great and really wanted us to enjoy our tour. I'd recommend this tour as a great beginning to seeing Miami

Fun and relaxing tour
We took the Miami sunset cruise. The boat was clean and well managed. We had a very good tour guide who was really humorous and described all the sights in a fun manner.

Great end to a cruise
I picked this tour as we had all day to fill after a Carnival Cruise before a late flight back to the UK. We were picked up from Bubba Gump by Jim on the coach and he was great. Our luggage was stored under the coach and we were away. We were a party of 5 my parents (late 70's) us and my teenage son. The South Beach tour was good and we really enjoyed the street art but our favourite was the trip to Little Havanna.Lunch was good and the ice-cream was amazing and we enjoyed watching the old men playing domninoes in the park. When we finished this part of the tour Jim let us keep the cases under the coach whilst we went off on the boat trip. He came back at 5pm with our cases. He even tried to call a cab for us and waited with us for a while. It was excellent service and I would recomend it to anyone looking for time to kill and suitable for all age ranges. thanks you.

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.
