About your tour
Are you ready for the most unique Miami City Tour that money can buy you? For this unforgettable tropical adventure all you need to bring are your sandals, shorts, hats and be in a good mood! We will show you Miami’s most exclusive spots, its best kept secrets and everything else you need to see while visiting the ‘Magic City’!
We believe Miami is THE most vibrant, fascinating and exciting metropolis in the US and one of the most interesting cities in the world. With over 300 skyscrapers Miami has the third largest skyline in the US. With tons of background information and personal experiences from years of living here we will take care of you like no other tour company can.
Just kick back and relax and enjoy our ‘no-questions unanswered’ tour.
During the last 90 years the metropolitan Miami area – the ‘Gold Coast’ – has become one of the most densely populated areas of the United States. More than 7 Million people from all over the planet have decided to settle here and call Miami home.
We will show you the mystic place that is prove that the Miami area has been populated for at least 2700 years, even though Julia Tuttle and Henry Flagler founded the city (that has never been a town) not even 125 years ago. Learn about the Tequesta, their ways of life and the Three Souls that live in each of us.
Miami puts its spell on people from all walks of life and doesn’t just call you with palm trees, sunshine and beautiful beaches. Lincoln Road, Espanola Way, Washington and Collins Avenue, Lummus Park and South Beach all have an exiting story to tell. We move on to South Pointe Park and its infamous past.
Add a boat ride to top off your perfect Miami experience. Cigarette Speedboat top speeds will take you along Biscayne Bay, Fisher Island, Dodge Island and the busiest cruise port in the world – Port of Miami before speeding along Ocean Drive and out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Or take the relaxed and slower paced cruise along ‘Millionaire’s Row’ and put your eyes on the sinfully expensive mansions of today’s stars, celebrities and billionaires. We will show you what is left of Tony Montana’s ‘Scarface’ mansion and take you to the haunted house of ‘The Addams family’. On Fisher Island the elite is ‘living their best life’ and of course we will take you along this beautiful island. So see with your own eyes how Miami’s ‘Rich and Famous’ live their lives today and hear about the latest ‘island gossip’ – simply unforgettable! There is no better place to catch Miami’s vibe (and a selfie) than along Fisher Islands bay overlooking Biscayne Bay and Miami’s incredible skyline.
Let us give you useful advice on where to shop, eat, drink and party. We’re going to make sure that you don’t have to fall for one of the many tourists traps that have been promoted for too long and safe you from bitter disappointment.
If you want to look behind the curtain of this bustling microcosm that we call our home, make sure to take this tour right at the beginning of your Miami trip. You will see our city with the eyes of a local after. And all this at a budget price that can’t be beat!
