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.

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.
