A Recent Review of this tour

I don't like tours and my brother bought this tour for me which we did Miami and Little Havana. I highly highly recommend this for anyone who is planning on visiting Miami. Steven our guide was exceptional better then expected. What I loved about this tour is that it wasn't just about seeing all the tourist places of Miami but seeing all the parts that have made Miami what it is today. A true ToursByLocals about the locals. I would will do it again when visiting Miami
