Miami sightseeing tour - Best sightseeing tour in Miami hands down. Our tour guide John was absolutely amazing. A very knowledgeable guy who took the time to explain the history and present life in Miami. He was a accommodating at all times during the tour and made sure we were consistently having a great time. In an open top jeep with the wind blowing, we visited Wynwood, South beach, little Havana, Coconut grove and many other places just to name a few. I feel that we really did get to experience the beautiful highlights of Miami in just a few hours. Thank you John for a wonderful experience which we will never forget!

Great! Lunch was excellent in Little Havana - Favorite part of the experience was the knowledge of the guide, Miguel. He blended the history of Miami -- the origin of its name, the importance Seminole peoples, etc. with the past and current development of the city and its locales of interest like the Wynwood art district and its history. Very comprehensive tour in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere

He knows the city and showed as a number of things that we simply would not have seen on a regular bus tour. Highly recommended way to see Miami and get some in-depth knowledge that you simply would not get on a regular bus tour. Excellent value.

Best part of our Miami Vacation in a private Jeep! - Best part of our vacation in Miami ! We were in a private new Jeep with the best tour guide ever, John! He was an archaeology graduate and super charismatic so knew a great deal and was very entertaining and informative. We saw every part of Miami from the comfort of our air conditioned Jeep! Wish I had done this last time we were in Miami.

Miguel + a comfy, clean Jeep = a perfect Miami day! - This is one of the best travel experiences I have ever had in my life - seriously! Jhon was excellent to work with on the customer service end, but OH! Miguel!!!! There aren't enough words to explain how above and beyond Miguel went to make sure we had a stellar day as our city guide. When I mentioned I loved history, he leaned into that interest. His love for the city and for people in general made the tour the highlight of our time in South Florida. It was worth every penny just to experience Little Havana with him as our guide - that alone would have been enough. But I could never, ever put a price on how much more he exposed us to throughout the day. I know I'm gushing, and I'm not the least bit ashamed. Book this tour! You will NOT regret it! (And for Pete's sake...ask for Miguel!)

Definitely Tons of Fun & Great Information - Amazing Tour of Miami and surrounding areas. Jhon, from Tons of Fun Tours & Rentals > Tonsoffuntours.com, was an amazing tour guide. He is well versed in the history of S. Florida, has a degree in anthropology, loves what he does, and it all translates into an amazing tour. He even took us to an authentic Cuba Restaurant in little Havana with delicious food! We will never forget this tour. It definitely is one of the best we've been on! The Wynwood street art & art deco areas of South Beach definitely are a must see!
