- The bus is a double decker with a good AC. - The pick up & drop off were exactly on time. - The air boat guide was very clear in the explanation. - We were lucky enough to spot 2 alligators. - Thank you, the trip exceeded my expectations :)

Thomas really made our experience 10/10. From the moment he picked me and my daughters up, he was attentive and so kind! I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and anyone else who wants to experience the jetcars.

Excellent. A must when visiting Miami. Friendly staff on the Bus providing good and relevant information to tourists. I will promote this Tour to my family and friends if they intendant to visit Miami.

Playing music was cool. But to only be restricted to a certain area for an hour doing circles is not worth the price

The guide but not the meeting point communication.
