The Miami flyer is promising more than the reality can give you. And it gives you unfortunately less, than in other cities. The buses are old, count with some wet drops inside if there will be a strong shower outside. The WIFI didn’t work on both days. And the vehicles operate only a very short time, between 10 am and 5 pm. Especially in the afternoon it’s not enough. Horrific traffic jams in the city make it impossible to enjoy lots of rides. The waiting time on the stops can be long too. Our conclusion: it’s really better to use public buses (partly for free), even if it costs some time to understand their system. We wouldn’t book the company again :-(( PS. If you decide to go with them, buy the deluxe ticket version with 2 days, a boat and the Everglades tour. At least more value for money with these both extras.

On a recent baseball trip to Miami, a buddy and I did the Big Bus Hop-On-Hop-Off tour of Miami. We had done the same tour in New York City, and the Miami tour was no comparison. If you choose not to get off at any stops, the tour lasts about two hours, and we paid $44.10 for the tour. Miami certainly doesn’t have as much to offer as New York, which is one of the reasons for the average rating. In my opinion, the only two stops worth getting off to see are the South Beach Historic District and Little Havana. The bus does not go down Ocean Drive, so if you want to see the Art Deco hotels, you need to get off and walk a couple of blocks. In New York each bus provided a narrator, and they were all very knowledgeable and thoroughly entertaining. In Miami, they provide ear buds to hear the commentary, and I’m assuming it is a canned commentary or possibly provided by the driver. I did not listen as I wear hearing aids and can only cram on piece of plastic into my ears at a time. Also, my buddy said the commentary was in Spanish. I know they offer English, but he was unable to access it. Little Havana is a unique area and very walkable. It offers a plethora of authentic Cuban dining establishments as well as opportunities to enjoy traditional Cuban music. The rest of the tour is essentially driving past various hotels and uninspiring. Possibly Ubering to the Art Deco area and Little Havana could save time and money.

We purchased the Go City Miami pass which included this hop on hop off bus tour. The process of getting our bus ticket was super easy. Parking at the bayside market was confusing and expensive. The audio was canned using single use earbuds they provided that only worked in some of the jacks and the sound would crinkle at the slightest touch. The bus only stops every 45 minutes or so so if you have somewhere you need to be you better catch it! We downloaded the app thinking it would help us make sure we caught the bus but the real time tracking wasn’t working so when our bus was approaching 10 minutes late at one stop we started panicking thinking we would be stuck at that stop for another 35 minutes. I should clarify that we did the day tour. Maybe the night tour is better. This was still a good way to get around and see multiple locations in one day but the tour info was super boring and I really missed having live people to add their commentary, suggestions and liven up the tour.

Boarded the bus in rain. Couldn’t see except the front window. Driver was waved over by 8 friends at a random place (not a stop) who all stood at the front window (against their policy). Again, raining so inside no views, of where we were going (due to windows covered with advertising and rain) what to see, etc. Driver kept putting people on even though no seats available . No maps available so you could plan on exiting the bus knowing what was around at the stops, just paid $98.00 dollars for two, to drive around Miami and not seeing ANYTHING, should have just closed my eyes. Driver admonished “ to stay behind the yellow line when asking about a map but allowed four young men to stand next to him and next to the door to BS on 3/4 of the trip. Used Big Bus in many US States and Europe, this was worst ever .

We enjoyed learning about the city of Miami and Miami Beach. The one thing to look out for is that the company sells as many tickets as they can without regard to whether or not they have enough busses to transport visitors around the city.
We arrived at the bus stop twenty minutes early. We were one of the first to be in line.
When the bus came they only had room for a few more.
They told us that we would only have to wait twenty more minutes as they would add another bus.
Forty-minutes later we finally got on a bus. We were lucky that the employee (Paula) made sure that people who were not able to get on the first bus stayed in line so that entrance would be fair.
We learned that there were cruises in port and they had way more people than busses.

Firstly, let us apologize for any inconvenience we might have caused to you on the day of your travel with us. On the day of you travel with us, we had increased our frequency from 30min to every 10-15 min.

Anyhow, as we are proud of our excellence in customer service. we kindly ask you that you contact us direct on our live chat on our app or website so we can try to turn around your negative experience into a good one. We look forward to hear from you. Kindest Regards, Big Bus Team Miami

Worst Big Bus tour I've ever been on. Extremely expensive for the few sites it offers. The commentary is very poor and the bus stops have no shade. The busses run infrequently, every 45min, and are not on time.
we got to a bus stop 10 min early to make sure we did not miss the bus, only for the bus not to arrive. We stood in the sun on a 29˚C day. We were not sure if we had missed the bus. Being a tourist without wifi/data, we were unable to check if we missed the bus.
The nex bus arrived 60 min later. Standing in the sun with 2 kids in the heat of miami waiting for a bus is no joke!
When the second bus arrived we asked about the previous bus that did not arrive. The driver had no idea. Also by that time there were approxiamely 40-50 people waiting for the bus and nobody was interested in queing, they were all making sure they would get onto the bus or wait another 45 min or more.

Big Bus advertises free wifi onboard their busses. NONE of the busses had wifi.

For such an expensive service to only be running every 45 min is a shame!

At the end we found it cheaper to Uber to all the places we wanted to go see, in an airconditioned car.

Alot of the headest systems were not functioning, so if you sat in a seat that did not have a working system, with the bus being full, you missed out on the guide.

Me and 2 other friends of mine took this Miami tour. The bus route is pretty good however on a summer day the bus air conditioning is turned off half way into the tour.
When I questioned the driver he claims ignorance and says something may be wrong.
We hopped off the bus and took the next bus and the same story with the second bus. No AC. The bus company management is simply cheating its customers by taking their full fare and giving them crappy treatment by saving gas.

We received BigBus Miami Tours for our family at Christmas and used them on our recent trip to Miami. We had a grand time! The drivers were really good and conscientious. We actually show one of the drivers (on right) in our photos and he was FANTASTIC because he made sure to slow down or stop at all of the picturesque places so we can get photos of ourselves. Using BigBus premium ticket, we toured the city via hop on, hop off, rode the Everglades boat tour, and rode the millionaire row boat tour. We had a FANTASTIC time!

Thanks to Andrei, Paul and chat support for answering my myriad of questions! :-)

Here’s the skinny: Go to BigBus site and buy directly from their website. BigBus gives great support and if you buy from a third-party, I found the third party does not give as good support as BigBus does directly.

We’re grateful for bigbus managing all of the logistics, driving, and tickets, so we didn’t have to worry about anything! Thanks big bus for another adventure and will use you again in other cities!

I never leave reviews, and previously love the Big Bus product in other cities.

The tour itself was good - on arriving back to the final stop, one of the big bus employees was crazy rude in demanding that we all de-bus. We hadn’t done so simple because we hadn’t heard - this included elderly riders, mothers and children.

The verbal battery acid coming out of the employee’s mouth was extraordinary and the level of aggression and angst was totally out of keeping with the situation. Maybe a bad day for this angry man but he was empowered in his terrible behaviour by big bus.

He proceeded to call me and others a ‘motherf*cker’ amongst other things. I took pictures of the license plate of the bus we transferred onto so it would have been easy to find out who this was for Big Bus if they wanted.

I wrote privately to Big Bus in early December 2022 and was completely ignored. They couldn’t have been less interested.

Big Bus are clearly aware of this individuals behaviour and appear to endorse it. I presume this happens to families on the Miami big bus every day of the week.

I decided against using their product in other cities since the Miami trip on ethical grounds.
