The hop on and hop off bus is fun way to see Miami, since we didn't start the tour at the first stop, it's a little concussing for the check in at the meeting point. The boat tour it's just ok, wishing the guide told us more history of the Miami islands development instead of telling the names of these famous people (most of them we don't recognize) who own the houses.

The boat tour was awesome! The tour guide was funny and friendly! She pointed out a lot of great points of interest. The bus tour not as great. The recorded tour was good but it should have shared a lot more information. The recording played too much music and not info sight seeing information. We didn’t pay to hear music. Paid to learn about the town. Then the driver asked for a tip at the end. Literally said “tips for the driver please”. He didn’t do anything but drive.

A great way to see the sights especially for seniors! We have enjoyed the Hop on Hop Off bus tours in many cities and this was one of the best. This tour was well organized and informative and the boat ride was an added bonus.The attendants were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend.
