Comparing Miami Tours

Investigate the duration, air conditioning, and group size

When you're selecting a tour, the cost isn't the only factor to consider. Investigate the tour duration, if the tour bus has air conditioning, as well as how many people you'll be with. Most tour companies include customer feedback on their websites — look around and see what previous tour customers have to say.

Here is a summary of information we gathered from the websites of four popular Miami tour companies (Miami Beach 411, Duck Boat, Big Red Bus, Half Price Tours).
