That’s exactly my plan, then found this great tour plan that came right into our budget. The buses were better than we imagine, including our hotel's reservations.

Well we always wanted to visit Florida, especially we wanted to take a tour of Miami which is exactly we did in this bus journey. Although I was a little lazy on this bus tour because on the first day we had to travel from New Zealand and take a very long flight to reach the Miami city the tour administration called us down at the departure location since we reached the airports a little late due to some flights l delays, and the tour leader called us and mentioned that they can only offer us some paid pickup service, which sounded a bit reasonable since we were late and the tour services weren't available at the time. By getting to know some of the people on the tour, we found out that they took a tour of the Miami South Beach and took some boat cruises down there, yet I started to feel like we have missed the major part of the tour. Anyways, on the final day, our tour crew explored the Miami beach, prior to that, we had such a wonderful time at the Everglades National Park. According to our experience on this bus tours, I would say the hotels and our tour destinations were really impressive. I liked how they dropped us off at the airports after the tour got finished.

The tour guide came handy when we were roaming among the mansions of Fort Lauderdale. Great assistance by our tour guide, plus the destinations like the South Beach, and boat cruise made our journey absolutely worth it. Love from Canada.

What's the point of traveling to Key West when we had nothing much to do there. Instead of traveling to Key West, we could have spent some more time Miami, well we have heard about the downtown Miami, it's always warm down there. We just visited the Ernest Home there and went back to Miami during the nighttime. We spend the night at the same hotel in Florida. There are so many things that I would like to share about this bus tours, briefly, I would say it was a great tour with really interesting stops such as the Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Everglades National Park, Lion Safari Park, and so many more. At the end of the tour, the tour team explored the Worth Avenue where had so much time to have a great time shopping among the many outlet stores. Although, we didn't get any discounts it's was alright since we were already tight on the tour budget and we spend less on the extra things. We slept well at our hotels after long days of exploration. Loved the tour!

it was such a beautiful tour that we took from Miami. The very first thing got me to fall in love with the tour is the online picking of the tours and then booking the tour seats online without having any problems. We felt necessary to call their front desk and learn some more about their tour package. Although we weren't looking for a four-day package, that's the only tour we did that has really remarkable discounts and doesn't have Orlando in its stops. Rather we enjoyed our time exploring the beauty of Miami South Beach. We also learned so much about the Art Deco Historical District at Miami. The first day there divided the crew upon their distinguished tour stops as they offered us whether we would like to explore around the Fort Lauderdale or spend some time in Miami Beach Area. It was great because some people are joining the tour from Fort Lauderdale, and it was comfortable and easy for everyone to pick the closet located hotels in which we stayed the 3 nights was Holiday Inn near the MIA Airport. It was a great hotel but I'm really sure that there must be so many better options for hotel stays rather than Holiday Inn, their services are always down. Anyways, we did great photography on the tour. Thanks.

My parents were from Miami, and I have not been in the States for twenty five years, I wanted to show my French wife my roots.. this tour was an ideal choice for us. I must say, it was actually better than I expected, it was perfectly organized and they even provided us some extra time at the Key West. The only complain we have is lack of English speaking skills of our tour guide, yes the tour had majority of Asian tourists but you should focus on the English speaking people as well. Other than that, we really enjoyed.

As a guy who was born and raised in Miami, I have to say I have seen many places around.. some sides of Key West beach and Little Havana. It was such an eye-opening tour for me because I would not have enjoyed the natural beauty that is preserved in the Everglades National Park, and the beautiful cruise ride at the Fort Lauderdale that highlight the upper class that has been living in Miami. It such a good experience, if time permits I will certainly be checking out some of your other tours as well. Thanks.
