Overall great experience

Would have given it a 5 if the bus didn’t flood inside when it rained and if the second bus driver didn’t have an attitude.

A Total waste of time.

No customer service. Once you book you are on your own. The directions should clearly say what app to download and bus schedule should be available for download. The tour itself is useless. I don't know how they are still in business.

Would not recommend - except as a way to get around the central city area
James_T

I took a bus tour of Miami in 2015, and thought this was the same one, but this tour was very mediocre. It ran a very short loop, missing key points in the neighborhoods it quickly passed through (i.e., it skipped the Versailles in Little Havana, and did not even mention the Fountain Bleu in South Beach). Canned tour narration, with mostly music and few details on the sites. Bus operators had extended stops at pick up points - even taking 20 minutes to get a new driver at Bayside.

It was extremely hot so sitting outside on the upper deck was not an option. While sitting on the first level I was unable to see outside due to the film on the window.

It was a great way to see Miami for the fist time. Busses have no AC, made it a little rough! The drivers were awesome.

It was very informative and great to hear the story of Miami. We found it easy to find the relevant bus stop an staff were nearby to help. We actually only got off at Little Havana which was a great place to see.

Most of the stops are just to pick people up. Some were not able to get on because of overcrowding. There are 3 stops worth getting off at.

Everything was great xcept having to wait 2 hours for the bus in little Havana when we should have only waited 1 hour. Screwed up our other plans.

Terrible phone experience
James_P
, May 2022
I called their phone line to get tickets for a Miami hop-on-hop-off bus. I first ended up with 2 day pass for Seattle. Bottom line: I spent 38 minutes on the phone. It was a nightmare. He didn't know what he was doing.

Horrible
Laurie_B
, Apr 2022
Purchased on line, went to stop I. Little Havana unaware that was the last stop of the day. The driver printed our ticket, not telling us that the day was over. So we purchased tickets for $88 to take a bus ride w NO opportunity to see th sights promised i. The tour, just a long bus ride we paid for as big bus (Eugen is agent I chatted with ) refused to refund me not even ANY portion of the ticket and refused to get me his supervisor, told me it was not the drivers responsibility to tell me it was the last stop of the day. May not have been his responsibility but would have been the right thing to do. The ticket is apparently good til 5:00 today, but as I explained to Eugen we won’t be able to use it today so therefore we just wasted our money. Would not recommend this tour to anyone unless I start it first thing in am. As I have never done one of those tours before I did not know how it worked and big bus was not at all helpful and Eugen also seemed to have an attitude with me

Disappointed bus ride

This was more like a crowded bus ride then a tour. Long stops at bus stops. We left bus ride early because it was not the tour like experience we had on other city tours.

Seeing downtown Miami. I also liked seeing the bay and that it was a hop on and hop off. We were though confused about where to initially pick the bus up.

It’s a really good route and narrated perfectly. Lots of fun facts that I never knew. The seats are not so comfortable but we sat up top and enjoyed the views.

Too many hiccups for a convenient way to see important Miami landmarks
Ahmed_F
, Mar 2022
Bus times are very inaccurate. A bus broke down before picking us up and we were not notified neither via the app nor through their employee at the stop. Had to wait for another hour or so. The path on the app is inaccurate too and they changed their first 3 stops on Collins Ave. The audio tour is okay, and the path is a convenient way to see important areas in Miami in a compact way. We also did the Millionaires’ boat tour which was informative but felt rushed. A major frustrating issue is that whenever I had a question or an issue, there is no phone number, the employees at the stops really don’t have a good idea of what is going on, and the message I sent through the app was apparently an email that I got a reply to 2 days later.

Patricia_S

Narrative didn't work at all seats, 12:55 bus never showed, finally a bus arrived at 1:55 and so crowded no room on roof. Advertisements on outside of bus make visibility on lower deck terrible. Last driver was such a poor driver (jerky) that my family got sick from the jerky movements.

Bad experience
Vanessa_S
, Mar 2022
We waited in the hot sun and the bus was more than 20 min late. Inside was no space to sit down. The wifi didn't work and there was no live tracking as promised. The ride was very bumpy. Don't do that tour!
