We received BigBus Miami Tours for our family at Christmas and used them on our recent trip to Miami. We had a grand time! The drivers were really good and conscientious. We actually show one of the drivers (on right) in our photos and he was FANTASTIC because he made sure to slow down or stop at all of the picturesque places so we can get photos of ourselves. Using BigBus premium ticket, we toured the city via hop on, hop off, rode the Everglades boat tour, and rode the millionaire row boat tour. We had a FANTASTIC time!

Thanks to Andrei, Paul and chat support for answering my myriad of questions! :-)

Here’s the skinny: Go to BigBus site and buy directly from their website. BigBus gives great support and if you buy from a third-party, I found the third party does not give as good support as BigBus does directly.

We’re grateful for bigbus managing all of the logistics, driving, and tickets, so we didn’t have to worry about anything! Thanks big bus for another adventure and will use you again in other cities!

We liked the tour. Well organized. We had a small accident at the beginning of the bus tour: the wind blew away our tickets. There was a boat tour ahead of us and bus to get back home and no tickets. We had a QR code on our phone, but no one could recreate the tickets. Situation became very frustrating. We got lucky to meet Laura Campos. She resolved the situation fast and reprinted our tickets. Laura saved our time and excursion. We had a great time. Thank you.

Dear dermgoddess, Thank you for your feedback. In Big BUS we appreciate all feedback as this helps us improve all aspects of our business. On the day of your travel with us, the causeways leading to Miami Beach were experiencing larger amounts of traffic than usual. We tried to compensate that by adding another 2 vehicles on our route but the unforeseen heavy traffic was heavier than usual for this time of the year. I would be glad to discuss it further and try to find a resolution for your experience with us. Please reach out to us on infomiami@bigbustours.com or simply contact us on our live chat in our app or website. We look forward to hear from you. Kind Regards, Big Bus Team Miami.

It was 86 degrees outside, and the AC in the downstairs enclosed portion of the bus did not work. There were only two small windows we could open, the rest were emergency windows. The upstairs was completely full, and we had already waited over 30 minutes for the bus to arrive. This made the trip no fun at all. A bus company that claims to be the largest and most popular tour owes its customers a much better experience.

Dear Goseastuff, Thank you for contacting us. we appreciate all feedback on our tours. On the day of your travel with us, all of our vehicles had AC working and we have launched an investigation to see what happened on the day of your travel with us. It turned out that one of our vehicles had an issue with AC.

A shout out to Big Bus/Miami for a rich and delightful tour of the city. We are from the Midwest and are not familiar with Miami so the tour gave us an understanding of the neighborhoods, rich history and understanding of how the city has evolved to the international destination it is today. We particularly enjoyed Wynwood where a civic patron led an endeavor to paint murals and “brighten” an area that was distressed. We actually hopped off the bus in Little Havana and had an authentic Cuban lunch (including mojitos 😜), all the while taking in the cacophony and culture of its people.

Big Bus offers a means to get a solid picture of the city with a short amount of time - the tour was about 3 + plus hours which does not include any hop offs you may want to experience. I highly recommend it.

I booked this online and read where they pick you up. Went to the first place and it never came. Then we called our hotel and they gave us a different spot. We saw the bus and it went right pass us. So we walked to another spot. Finally we got picked up after walking an hour. We got dropped off and asked when is last bus driver said 5:00. Great we walked around and started to head to the location at 4:50. At 455 tge bus pulled away and we thought there would be another bus. We were wrong. We had to take a Uber back to the hotel. These people don’t really care. We could not get anyone on the phone to talk to.

Dear sandyshoal, Thank you for reaching out to us. We appreciate your feedback. All of our drivers are trained never to leave any stop earlier then the expected time to ensure we dont leave anyone behind. We have checked our GPS tracking on the day of your travel and all buses on that days left the stops with 5 min delay due to heavy traffic in some parts of the city. Anyhow we welcome you to reach out to us direct if you wish to discuss it further at infomiami@bigbustours.com and let us know how best to resolve this case. Thank you. Kind Regards, Big Bus Team Miami

If I could leave zero stars I would leave zero. The entire right side of the bus audio did not work, so essentially no tour. When I messaged the company they Said “I am very sorry to hear about the situation, however kindly note that our tours operate on a hop on/hop off schedule, meaning that you can always hop off the current bus, and wait for the next one which could better suit your needs.” That’s not realistic when there is one hour between each bus. So very unprofessional.

Dear 570gretchenb, Thank you for reaching out to us. On the day of your travel, we have not received any complaints on our audio system. On a daily bases, we have a bus on stand by in case we have any eventualities with our vehicles. Anyhow, rest assured that we will be performing an audit on the audio on all of our buses to ensure we dont have this issue in the future. Thank you and if you would like to discuss it further, we would love to hear from you at infomiami@bigbustours.com. Kind regards, Big Bus Team Miami

The tour is pre recorded. It is not very informational and mostly just plays music. It is not like New York, Philadelphia or other hop on hop off buses that run every 15 minutes. Terrible!! They leave sometimes 10-30 minutes late which is not terrible. But when u hop off on a street corner and go have lunch then arrive back, the bus arrives and leaves before you get there. You may be stranded on a street corner for an hour waiting on another bus. I contacted them and all they told me is that they advise everyone to arrive 15 minutes early, which they did not.

Dear kbonts, Thank you for reaching out to us. In regards to our frequency, all of our driver go though extensive training and one of the pillars of the training is the departure from stops. All of our drivers are instructed to leave the stop no earlier than the scheduled time. Furthermore, all of our buses are tracked by GPS and we keep a very close control on this point. If by any means, we failed on the day of your travel, we would be glad if you could contact us at infomiami@bigbustours.com in order to discuss it further as this is not a common practice or a complaint in our operations.

Horrible service.. don’t think about it unless you have internet and already know the city.. they say they have wifi they don’t.. rude people other than those buying to you, the app has a station location on 9th street but it stops on 10th.. the signs are not clear , the schedule changes and is not clear.. and if you try to ask the staff they act like you’re offending them.. I’ve been on the bb in over 6 other cities was amazing, this one horrible..

Dear Inspire512622, Thank you for reaching out to us. After your feedback, we are reviewing all of our collaterals and advertisement as we do not advertise or have WIFI on our buses. On the same lines, we will be changing the location of the stop on the app to ensure this does not happen in the future. Our schedule has been the same for the past 6 months were we operate every hour every day of the the week, anyhow, sometimes our buses are delay due to traffic conditions. I would like to encourage your to be in touch with us direct if you would like to discuss further, any of your points above. Kindest Regards, Big Bus Team Miami
