Unlike big cities with central urban cores interconnected by mass transit, Miami is spread out over a large area and has minimal mass transit. Getting around is mainly done by car. A great way for visitors to get around and see the attractions is on a narrated sightseeing bus tour. You’ll get a great overview while traveling high above the traffic in comfortable motor coaches with big viewing windows or on double decker buses with viewing windows below and open top decks above. Narration by informative on-board guides or via audio in several languages brings sights to life. Depending on your sightseeing preferences, you can choose the flexibility of a hop off/hop on narrated tour with loops covering must see neighborhoods and sights. Stay on for the full 1.5 hour complete loop or hop off at any of the multiple stops when you come to a place you want to explore on your own.

Bike & Segway Tours
Active teens, young adults and travelers who enjoy the outdoors jump at the chance to sightsee in the beautiful Miami weather while gliding upright on a Segway.

Glide through glamorous South Beach, passing gorgeous beaches and people; see fanciful, futuristic details up-close on Art Deco buildings; pass by trendy cafes, poolside lounges, A-list nightspots and legendary SoBe sights. For a change of pace, glide along Miami Riverwalk in Downtown Miami, always within sight of water.
