    Me Giovanni was an excellent tour guide! He was friendly, humorous and professional. The sites included with our package was perfect for us! We enjoyed the Everglades and the boat tour of Miami Bay was also fun! Very satisfied with our experience!

    Unforgettable and amazing trip !!

    , Feb 2020
    This was an amazing trip. We all loved it. Zooming along the Everglades with wild alligators jumping out of the water next to you was a thrilling experience. Then on to Miami and cruising around the celebrity homes followed by a walk on Miami Beach at sunset and then a stroll down Ocean Drive - unforgettable trip that you should do if you get the chance.

    Because it was in the low 60's and rainy, we only saw a few alligators and just a few birds so it was disappointing to come all that way and not see more. Weather played a huge part and then going back to Miami, we had a flat tire on the bus tour and sat for 2 hrs. on the hwy. So at that, we would have enjoyed the trip more by just staying in Miami and touring and going to South Beach.

    Very Poor Communication.
    121Tarans
    , Aug 2019
    First off, our trip was nearly ruined as our pickup was grossly miscommunicated. My last confirmation was to be picked up at the All Star Music resort. When we were a minute late i called Grey Lines to say we were almost there. They said i wasnt supposed to be picked up there and my PU was 10 min ago. I told them i literally have an email stating otherwise. It was sheer dumb luck another couple happened to have a reservation for the same tour. Also, the tour says 1 hour at Bayside Marketplace. We had 2 min before the boat ride and half hour after the boat ride. Not enough time to eat unless you want really greasy vendor food for a 4 hour ride back. Also, we never got to see the Art Deco District which i was wanting to see. It said we would have an hour. We had maybe half an hour to walk to South Beach and it would be to get there take a picture and head back. The Star Cruise was great. And the Everglades was a delight. The tour guide could have had better communication. At any point we never really knew where we were going till we actually got there. Most tour guides tell jokes and info about the area. Not Darin, he only ever spoke when we got to the spot and told us what to do. Overall the value is there. I only rated this so poor becasue had it not been luck that another couple was on the same tour. We would have missed out. When i called them they didnt seemed to concerned that i was at the "wrong spot".

    Gray Lines fail!

    , Aug 2019
    We were picked up a bit after our scheduled 6:30 am pickup time. There were 2 drivers as they could not drive over a certain amount of time. When we picked up our last group of people there was not room for the 2nd driver. We sat there as they tried to figure it out! Then went to meet a double decker that was trash. I had to clean off the seat of chip crumbs before I could sit down & it was falling apart--material coming lose, panels on the overhead coming lose, windows on the driver side upper deck leaking so we had to move over, & there was no microphone so the 2nd driver had to go up & down trying to relay info to all of us. We FINALLY left Orlando at a little after 8:30 (scheduled to depart at 7 am!) As a result, all of our activities were pushed back & rushed & caused us to not be dropped back off until after midnight!!! The acrobat ride on the Everglades was nice & the favorite part of the trip for my 17 year old son was holding an alligator! We then went to Bayside Marketplace where we inhaled food before our cruise, which was ok. We then loaded back up & spent an hour at South Beach before heading back to Orlando. At the rest stop we boarded yet ANOTHER bus for the remaining trip. The one saving grace was one of the drivers, Giovanni, who had a great sense of humor & made the trip better! Kudos to him!

    The trip was well organized and although it was a very long day i cannot see how you could improve it really. everglades and boat ride and the aligator show was great and the gator host was very informative and passionate about his role. Giovanni our driver was great.

    I booked this with the promise of hotel pickup. When I confirmed with the local operator I was told pickup was elsewhere. As a result I was not able to meet the tour and missed out. What a waste.

    Awesome one day Miami trip

    , Apr 2019
    Went on this tour alone....visiting orlando by myself for some me time from North Carolina. This was my second time using grayline tours...1st time was a local tour of Orlando. I am always amazed at the attention to detail they have on these tours. Being alone i was nervous..hoping I didn't get lost from the group or be confused as to what to do. Our tour guide Giovanni Barile was awesome. Communicated everything very well. He made us all feel safe and he assured us that "I got you" He was brilliant. I could have sent my 14 year old alone and he would have saw tonig that she was where she needed to be and had the best experience. The day was long but its the beat way to see Miami without having to travel there by your own means. I loved it and highly recommend it. Just beware of the long day...If you are up for It, then you will enjoy this. It was a beautiful day in Miami. I will donit again.

    A very long day from Orlando. Do not take children on this trip! The Everglades were fantastic and the air boat ride was very memorable. The boat trip of homes of the rich and famous was hopeless. Should be named the homes of the has beens and who cares. Guide on the boat was overpowering and the sound system was so bad you missed almost everything that was said. The whole trip narration was about touting for tips.

    We were the last pickup at 650am from the big orange giftshop. The bus was on time and comfortable. First stopped in Miami to drop people off, then went to everglades which was awesome, then back to Miami where there was free time, the cruise, and south beach. Bring your swimsuit and towel!

    This was a great trip. It was a long day so be prepared. The Drivers were friendly and helpful with information and keeping us on track. We were on a Disney Resort that was not a part of the pick up so we made arrangements to be picked up and they told us 20 additional which was fine. The Driver came and said 25, so my husband gave him 30 and the Driver said he had no change and would give us the 5 back later. Of course, that never happened but other than that and the Driver picking up a strange at a rest area that was without a ride for a few extra bucks the trip itself was great. Beware The Driver are hustlers. The 1st stop to Everglades was fun and exciting. The boat ride at Miami Pier was longer than we excepted about 2 hrs. so not much time to spend on the Pier. The South Beach part was short cause of some delays but still fun. This is worth the money.

    We booked this trip as my daughter wished to visit Miami and I wanted to do Everglades.We had heavy rain all the way there which thankfully cleared by the time we were leaving the bus.Everglades section was amazing.Very informative and we got up close to alligators however I have a suspicion that the guide deliberately soaked us !!!The reason why I gave 4 stars however was the fact that we only had 40 minutes to get something to eat before going on the celebrity cruise trip which left no time to look round a bit of Miami.We were given an hour to go to South beach which I would have swapped for time at the marketplace.Our guide Mike was funny and informative.He also helped myself and daughter out at end of night making sure we got home safely..This trip is worth taking.

    Great Day trip to southern Florida. Set back and enjoyed the ride. Tour guide and bus driver very friendly and informative about the area and tour. You spend just enough time at each site to be able to experience the location without becoming to overwhelmed or bored. Would recommend this Tour to anyone who is not familiar with the area and you want something fun to do.

    Michael T
    , Jun 2017
    Our Grayline tour guide and driver were very good. The guide shared a lot of information about the Orlando and Miami areas, and was very available to make sure that we knew where to be and when. The Everglades Air Boat ride was different than what we had experienced in the past. Previous air boat rides in the Panama City Beach area were short on wildlife and were mostly fast rides on open water. This tour had an abundance of gators, birds, and snakes with photo opportunities. Our boat captain had been driving the glades for 20 years and was entertaining and informative. The Miami experience included the bay front market, boat tour of the harbor, and the south beach area. The market was a good stop with time to grab a very late lunch at a variety of fast food eateries. The harbor tour on the Island Queen was well done and lead by a warm and friendly guide who spoke in English and Spanish. There were many beautiful homes to see, but really the quality of the experience was just taking in the cityscape from the water. The South Beach trip was short and uninteresting unless you wanted to spend the time drinking cocktails. I do not recommend this long bus trip 6:45 AM-11 PM for people with small children. They will inevitably get very bored, and you won't know exactly when you will get to eat lunch or dinner. My only serious complaint about this particular day was that the tour operator, Grayline, had also booked a family for our bus that were only getting TRANSPORTATION to Miami. Because of that, we had to first drive to Miami, drop the family off, and then drive northward again to the Everglades. This extra side trip consumed what seemed like 11/2 hours of our day. The provided sack breakfast had good options like juice, fruit and danishes.

    Well organized and informative. It was in e.English and Spanish. Stops built in were well timed and had there were movies on the bus to watch although one screen wasn't working. Only complaint is no wifi on bus or plugs to charge. It was a long day but felt I saw a lot of FL.
