This was a nice, easy going tour of the bay. The focus is on the small residential islands but it's a nice way to spend an hour and the scenery is really beautiful. Our tour guide was great - fun but not patronizing; knowledgable and friendly. It was a nice experience.

Richey and Captain Starkey are very funny and entertaining! The weather was not good but Richey kept everyone laughing and enjoying themselves. Not only fun but extremely interesting as well.

This was a wonderful way to learn about Miami and see the beautiful homes on the islands of Biscayne Bay and the hotels on Ocean Avenue. The guide is entertaining and makes the 90 minute trip very enjoyable. It is definitely a great value for your money. My kids range in age from 14 to 6, the 6 year old... More

A tour to kick off your stay in South Beach. Get a potted history of the area in a highly entertaining and vibrant manner. 'You're in South Beach now!' our guide declared as he put on the music and had us all laughing. Value for money and very entertaining. One for the family or any group of any persuasion.

really enjoyed our time with Duck Tours. The tour guide was a real character who got everyone involved - funny and knowledgable. The tour starts off in the centre of Miami beach. After a short drive to the causeway enters the water and sends about an hour cruising the waterways looking at the fantastic waterfront homes. After that it's a... More

This was my second time in the Duck tour Miami, this time with my 3 year old grandson. Excellent experience, he still talks about the bus that goes in the water. Very informative and fun at the same time.. First time we drove thru Ocean Drive not this time, I guess maybe because of the heavy traffic we encountered going... More

This tour was great and I highly recommend it if you're in Miami! I was used to the Boston Duck Tours, which are mainly on land but just go into the water a little but. So I was pleasantly surprised that this version spends a lot of time in water. This part alone was well worth the cost of the... More

We were told that there was a delayed and duck tour left 30 min late and then the boat went in the water and they made us wait for the mechanic for 30 min . What a waste of time!! Poorly organized and terrible. U cam go by car to hibiscus island and save the $&&!

We booked this 24 hours in advance and had no problems at all. The staff at the ticket office were very friendly. We did have a slight delay in leaving due to a party of 3 that weren't on time and I was surprised they held up the tour for them - based on previous reviews. Getting to the area... More
