What we will do
  • We will board a coach for a sightseeing tour of Miami, the eclectic and cosmopolitan capital of Florida. We will travel through the city centre where we can marvel at the towering skyscrapers in the financial district along Brickell Avenue.
  • Our next stop is Little Havana, a charming district bursting with Caribbean colours and rhythms, where the Cuban refugees who reached Florida in the 1960s settled. * We will travel along the streets which have a strong Hispanic spirit, like Calle Ocho with its series of artisan cigar shops, lively Cuban restaurants and bustling shops.
  • Then we will reach the historic bohemian district of Coconut Grove, the oldest and most elegant in the city, famous for its refined restaurants, picturesque cafés and fabulous boutiques.
  • We will continue towards the popular South Beach, a spectacular stretch of white sand, and admire the charming streets of the Art Deco District, where we will find the largest concentration of Deco buildings in the world.
  • Once at the Bayside Marketplace, we will get on a boat to enjoy a pleasant cruise of Biscayne Bay.
  • We will see the port of Miami, considered the cruise capital of the world, and Fisher Island, an exclusive location with multi-million-pound villas owned by celebrities of the past and present such as Oprah Winfrey, Boris Becker, Mel Brooks and Paul Newman.
  • We will cruise past Star Island, an artificial island that is also home to magnificent villas with landscaped gardens and luxury pools directly overlooking the sea. We will glimpse Gloria Estefan's home, the cottage where Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher spent their honeymoon and the house used in the film "The Specialist" starring Sharon Stone and Sylvester Stallone.
  • Finally, we will reach Palm Island where the spectacular mansion that belonged to Al Capone is located and then we will head back towards Bayside as we admire the enchanting Miami skyline.
