Miami bus and boat tour
susan_a

The bus tour was wonderful. the guide did really well going from English to Spanish. He did not give clear enough instructions to the group how to proceed for the boat tour.Didn't explain you had to get boat tickets.The boat ride was not so enjoyable. There were not enough seats on the upper deck, so there were many people standing and moving from side to side as attractions were pointed out, thereby blocking our view. Difficulty understanding the guide's English.

Ok trip

Ok trip. They have shortened the trip from last year. One annoying thing was that they made us sit down and order at a restaurant of their choice in bayside. Only after we ordered food, they gave the boat tour tickets .

Don't do it

The boat tour was ok. The rest was not interesting. We did stop at little Havana. No history, no explanation. 1mn story in front of a guy who was making cigar and that's all! We saw more in 3hours walking before than in those 5 hours tour. Don't do it!

What a complete waste of money!!! My son (20 years) and I got off on the first stop and grabbed an Uber!! The “presenter” was concerned with hitting on the ladies and his language wasn’t appropriate for the younger crowd. Knowledge you’d expect to learn on a tour didn’t happen here!!!

The guide tour end up drunk and just asling for tips. I don't enjoy that the visit in little Havanna is basically to try to sell us puros, mojitos and stuff. We did not visit it, it is just going from your friend's shop to the next friend's business

The over all tour is...
LaToya_S
, Jun 2022
The over all tour is nice, but!!! Our city tour guide was drunk and cursing, very disrespectful, we had kids/families on this tour. He couldn't focus at times, he kept a drink in his hands, which was spilling on himself and others. On the city tour taking us and rushing us to buy moheto's and in a young women's face to where he couldn't get us where he promised, so some of us just walked off. We were told to be back at 50 after bus started to leave at 42 after. Now even more drunk. When taking us to the boat tour, his focus was on one lady that he promised to buy mangos for. One lady told him to go on, his response was "Ibsee how you are". This is a pickup spot for him. He had to be redirected twice to get us where we needed to be. He asked for tips way more than anyone I have heard of. My tip for him is, "no drinking on the job". This guy is a liability to your company, from sexual harassment charges, to falling off the bus literally....

Dave_J

This was a great day for the majority of it. The driver was good, our host was awesome. The only downside was our bus to get picked up apparently broke down and after our full day, standing at the pick up location while it was hot was not fun. We waited until almost 3pm for the 230 bus and decided to get a Lyft back to our car instead of waiting.

Great city views

The boat tour provided great city vistas. All the staff was entertaining and helpful. The bus tour was more of a tourist trap. Did not like being dropped off at a restaurant to wait for boat tickets.

Horrible experience getting back
Geraldine_R
, Jun 2022
The experience started out great! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient to wait on people who needed to use the restrooms, shop, etc. He also took us to the best and fastest restaurants, so we could eat and get on the boat for the second half of the adventure. The disappointing part of this trip was the company not having enough bus stationed at the pick up location to take us back to our destination and we had to stand in the bus for the ride back. I was very disappointed that people who was not on our trip going was on the bus coming back and they took our seats. This is unacceptable and I will not take this tour again for that reason. I would also like a refund of the bus portion of the tour.

No AC on a very old bus. Tour guide didn’t talk much, mostly on his phone. Told no history. Boat portion was better, and only reason this doesn’t get 1 star.

The MOST UNPROFESSIONAL TOUR of Miami EVER!!!!!
Marc_K
, Jun 2022
Ok, so I try to find the positive in everything but honestly this tour was not good. Tropical depression hit, tried to call after seeing floating cars on the news in Miami. apparently, tour was not canceled, so rebooked (10 dollar fee PP to rebook???) but argued that one considering Miami had 4FT of water at the time of our tour. Then while on tour, a group of about 25 people didn't want to do the boat portion, so they rescheduled it for the next day. We were leaving that day, so asked for refund for that portion (not received yet) but they never consulted or told us until we arrived at marketplace. We were suppose to have an hour eating lunch at Marketplace but again the group of 25 didn't want to stay there and were told that we would have to find our own way back if we didn't board the bus to go back. The tour guide made inappropriate comments, played inappropriate music way too loud. This was the most embarrassing tour of a city I have ever attended. This company has issues internally and the tour guide felt that he needed to share his disgruntled issues he has with the manager. Not to mention how tips were constantly talked about from the beginning of the tour, during the tour and end of the tour. Not sure what I paid for except a very unprofessional tour of a great city. The Miami Board of Tourism should seriously look into how this company represents Miami because it really left a bad taste in my family's mouth. If this was my company, I would seriously sit down with everyone and have a serious talk because this was absolutely AWFUL. Viator, you should not be promoting this tour if you care about your reputation.

We got a decent tour of miami the boat ride was a little too hot to be on. It was very rushed and we had to go back to certain areas on our own time but it gave us an idea of where to go.

Worst tour of my life
Bill_G
, Jun 2022
It was a terrible experience and the worse tour I and my friends have ever been on. The description of what the tour includes is not were the tour went. I sent the following email during the tour and have not heard back. I would like a full refund. I would like a full refund for the 5 tickets I purchased for the 1:30 tour and boat trip on June 6. The description on your website does not match the bus tour.  All we did was drive to Little Havana and get escorted to several shops where we were incouraged to purchase items.  We were then dropped off at the Bayside Market Place and told the the boat tour would leave at 4:45 an 90 minutes later.  I asked was not told how we are suppose to get back to our car in Miami Beach.  We are not taking the boat tour as we have been greatly disappointed in what your has shown us. Following is the description of what we would see on your tour from your website.  As I mentioned we only went to Little Havana.  I expect a reply and a full refund.
