High quality single crystals of some representatives of half-Heusler family were grown from Bi-flux. For single crystals characterization, X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques were used. The low-temperature physical properties of the synthesized crystals were determined by means of magnetization, magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity and heat capacity measurements. For each compound but LuPtBi, the electrical resistivity varies in a semimetallic manner at high temperatures, and exhibits a metallic character at low temperatures. LuPtBi is metallic in the whole temperature range studied. The bismuthides HoPdBi, LuPdBi, LuPtBi and YPtBi were found superconducting below the critical temperature T_{c} = 0.7, 1.8, 0.9, and 0.96 K, respectively. For the compounds GdPdBi, DyPdBi and HoPdBi, an antiferromagnetic ordering was found to set in below T_{N} = 12.8, 3.7, and 1.9 K, respectively. HoPdBi is thus an intriguing material in which both cooperative phenomena coexist.
