Miami Magic City-Bus & Walking Tour

Delving into the unknown can sometimes be as invigorating as a dip in the surf. And to that end, we offer you a way of seeing Miami that most people rarely experience. What you will learn along our less-traveled path will enrich and engage you. The unique vantage point of our guides will bring you a refreshing perspective on the “Magic City’s” colorful heritage.

Explore Miami's most famous and historic neighborhoods as we bring to life the history and wonder of this eclectic city. Hear about Miami's early pioneers and their stories of adventure and hardship in the Florida wilderness that is now Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Little Havana, Miami, and South Beach. The juxtaposition of native flora and the Miami skyline provides spectacular views on your way through paradise. This tour gives you a taste of the diversity that makes life in Miami a truly international experience and paints a picture of early settlement life on the banks of the Miami River.

Benefit from something most visitors and even locals never experience: a true sense of place.
