Nec, was my tour guide. He is amazing!!! I went to Miami for my first time with my friends and this was the best thing I can write about. I enjoyed the tour conversation and history about Miami no else ever told me. Tour is very affordable and covers almost everything you can imagine in Miami.

What an amazing experience!!! Captain Bob and Connor know how to show a great time and loaded with fun information Too!!!!! Gorgeous boat and beautiful scenery… what more could you want. Simply incredible….

This was a really fun way for two first-timers, like my husband and me, to be introduced to Miami. The guides were oh so kind and very fun! I highly recommend.

The flight with Orin in the Cessna was great! He explained everything to us during the flight and showed us Miami! That was a great experience! Gladly again!

Really enjoyed the daytrip with Nick. He was a pleasure to be with and it was a splendid day.
