Miami Tour Company Adds New Bus To The Fleet

April 29, 2010 By Gus in Miami: Travel NewsMiami: Things to Do  | 5 Comments

Dear Friends,

I am excited to announce, Miami Beach 411 and Miami Tour Company have added a new bus to the fleet. We purchased the vehicle on eBay, and drove her down from Pennsylvania. She’s a 36 passenger Blue Bird, with coach seats.

We love the bus! She has giant tires, tons of character, and is perfect for Everglades tours, but before she hits the road, we are going to replace the floor, rebuild the seats, paint the interior and exterior, and install a GPS tour system.

The bus conversion should take us about a month. I thought some of you might like to see how we progress.

Here are a few pictures, showing the work in progress.

Ain’t she a beauty?

When the conversion is complete, we hope you will come and join us on a tour!

If you have any questions about Miami Tour Company, please contact me. Our phone number is: 305-260-6855.

Happy sightseeing,

May I be the first to say the bus and tour are going to be awesome!

How cool that you bought the bus on ebay.

Could be a fun meet up? We could take the 411 gang out for the day.
