Our experience was wonderful. Ask for Shawn. He knows all the stops and will give you a highly educated tour. Allowed for rest room breaks and the ability to take pictures. The bike shop needs at least 20 more guides such as him.. When ever I am back in Miami, he will be my go to guy!!!! Chicago bound!!!! See you again soon Miami!!!!!

Great way to get full perspective of South Beach. We saw neighborhoods and sites that you never would on your own. Guide was very knowledgeable. So glad we chose to tour on bikes over Segways since bikes can go on paths and to areas where Segways can't go.

Excellent tour with Robyn who makes the cultural experience come alive. The food were different assortments which from start to finish gave a delight and tasty feeling in your mouth. This is a good choice for everybody especially if you are not a local

This tour was so much fun and we got learn about the history and current hotspots to visit. Wish we could have done this on our first night to then go to all the hotspots we learned about! We got to jump off and sightsee…I highly recommend it.

Heath was a great tour guide! Highly recommend this tour. Lots of fun!
