The deal is great and the air boat tour is an exciting experience. I've used Big Bus in different countries and enjoy it, however in Miami it was a bit different. One of the sales person (Johany, I think) was extremely rude and cared more about catching customers than providing good service to the paying ones. He was trying to convice some girls while charging my credit card and made the incorrect charge (the other sales girl had told him all the details and asked him to hurry as the bus was about to leave), his response was "I have to be a shark to get more customers" and basically didnt care about the duplicate payment. The next day we asked about the boat tour, he gave incorrect information and once we got there the girl said they always had issues with him. I got back to him and claimed the poor customer service provided to which his response was, in a very rude manner: "I am the best sales person from this company" and "if you werent a woman I would have reacted as I wanted to". From my experience, Big Bus didnt have these core values, and it was very dissapointing to go through this.

This was a joke. I've ridden other airboat rides that were ten times better and much longer. However, Captain Dillan was FANTASTIC!! If it wasn't for him, I would have really been disappointed. He deserves your tips for sure! He was fun and entertaining, but the boat ride is way too short for the price. The alligator show isn't much either, but for little kids, they would get a kick out of it.

8The place where I was supposed to meet the bus to begin this excursion was not well identified. Information about the trip was given by a Big Bus Tours ticket seller in a little tent/booth 50yards from the unsheltered & non-descript little plaza. The tour I purchased was to begin @2pm with recommended check in 30 min prior, which I did. The first thing I learned was that the tour start time had been changed to2:30, then 2:45, 3:00 - arrived @ 3:10. Piled everybody into an old bus & departing for a congested freeway journey of an hour’s duration. When we arrived at the destination forty miles away - a rather rundown “Vintage” attraction - at 4:10pm, the bus driver implored us to be back at the bus No Later than 5:30pm because he had to “get back”. We were literally hustled off the bus to a huge waiting fan boat for what was supposed to be an hour of riding through the River of Grass. The boat ride was cut to 40 min, we docked & were ushered to a small & stained arena for a brief talk/demonstration with a trio of 5’- 6’ alligators. When that 15 -20 min ‘show’ was done, we were invited stay a few extra minutes to pay cash to be photographed with a 3’ baby alligator. Dismissed back to the bus, the exasperated bus driver let a few of the women go to the restroom before leaving. All of the women were back for about 7 minutes, unnoticed by the driver as he texted furiously on his phone. I finally got his attention & said everyone was back. The uncomfortable ride back to Miami began @ 6:10 pm, delivering us back to the place where it all began at 7:20pm because of even more traffic.
I absolutely do not recommend this tour, or any other by the company. None of their personnel were gracious or friendly, 70% of the time was spent waiting for or riding on an old bus, additionally, the whole experience was of low quality. There are nicer (smaller & quieter) fanboat vendors if you drive yourself down to Homestead & you will find several more updated & professional venues offering such rides that are more welcoming, where questions are invited by the staff & nobody rushes you through any part of the experience. Save yourself the frustration & disappointment of buying an “adventure” from Big Bus tours. You can do much better if you transport yourself all the way down to the Everglades & buy from those local vendors. You will be glad you did!

We have enjoyed Big Bus Tours in other cities, but Big Bus in Miami was such a disappointment! The company seemed like it had many employees who didn’t know what they were doing or what they were supposed to do. The buses were poorly marked and sitting around empty with drivers and employees who didn’t know where they were going or when they were supposed to go. We wasted so much of our day with big groups of people standing around waiting within sight of groups of employees that didn’t know anything to help and truly didn’t even want to help. I’m thankful I only paid Groupon prices, but still felt ripped off. I will read reviews more carefully from now on. The Havana loop was a complete waste of time. It seemed like Big Bus had no interest in historical or architectural landmarks. We drove past many old buildings and obvious landmarks, but Big Bus didn’t even mention them on the Havana tour and the Beach tour

It’s great if you don’t have a car and take this tour. It comes with the bus pick up in Miami downtown and Miami Beach. But if you have a car, it’s better you drive there by yourself, the entrance fee is only $28.

Fun seeing all the wildlife on the boat. The alligator show at the end was cool. Staff friendly and helpful. For a 2 hour round trip, we did not get much time at the tour location.
Pickup was very confusing, no one at the Bayside pickup location seemed to give us much information about when the bus was showing up or where it would show up, other than "over there". The buses should have signs in the front windows showing the tour name and it would be a lot easier than to keep lining up next to buses that weren't the right tour.

It took almost 1:30min to reach the boat area. All the way the driver kept reminding us to give a tip, suggesting 15% (do they not pay their staff? ) the airboat ride was fun (but again touting for tips) but way too short. When booking the trip we specifically requested one that didn’t have captive animals but guess what the alligators were in an enclosure and they did ‘tricks’ with them and then showed a baby alligator whose photo you could take for a further $3. Big bus have turned their staff into beggars! Another 1:30 to get back to south beach meant that out of a 4 hr trip less than 30 mins was in the Everglades.

We took this trip on Sunday, December 22, 2019. It was a little confusing to find the pick up location at the Torch of Friendship area. There is a parking ramp in the area. Once we located this roadside monument, we found the bus and driver. He immediately welcomed us and offered water to all. We drove for approximately 30 minutes while our driver pointed out highlights along the route. Once at the Everglades, we were given ear plugs and lined up for our turn on the boats. No waiting, we immediately boarded and headed out. We were please to see many gators and birds. The air boat driver gave us an exciting ride as well. The actual length of the ride is about 20 minutes. Next we attended a "show" seeing some gators and other animals up close. The tour ends with an opportunity to hold a small gator and get your photo taken for a fee. There is a gift shop and snack bar. Driver returns you to the starting point.
