I highly DO NOT recommend this tour if you are a compassionate animal lover who does not support animals being kept in captivity in uncomfortable conditions. I'm referring to the 50 minute stop that this riverboat tour makes to the "Jungle Queen Tropical Isle." This is an unnecessary, odd pit-stop designed to further bilk tourist dollars on awful concession food... More

They were gorgeous! It was interesting how some made their money. We enjoyed the Water Taxi too, Very good guides~I just couldn't find the Water... More

It was interesting and saw numerous large/small and EXTREMELY large floating mansions as well as homes on land that would open ones eyes. The waterways where these were located ( boats coming and going ) were a tight fit for the larger ones and required professional operators. There was an alligator show (not the greatest) and lunch was available on... More

Jungle Queen is one of the major attractions who are visiting Fort Lauderdale for the first time. Check the schedule first than plan your agenda. There is one tour in the morning around 9:00 am and another one in the afternoon at 1:00 pm. If you rent a car, first of all you should park it. There is no parking... More

A really enjoyable river boat cruise made fun by the humor of the employee on the PA system. The food was good , not gourmet, but good and plenty of it. I didn't find... More

A great trip and the view of the homes and yatchs were great. The food was good, but the trip was the best part.
