Nice relaxing tour around South Beach, although my 21 year old son wasn't so amused by it. Great way to see some of the history of the city and learn about landmarks. The duck itself is a bit difficult for the elderly to board.

We had been on this tour 4 years ago and decided to do it again. It was fantastic, there were people from all ages in the tour and everybody had fun. The girl at the desk was very friendly and even gave us a discount because I mentioned that it was our second time with them. The bus/boat takes you... More

Have read the review I must say I cant add much to this attraction. if you are in the area its a must. Its a bit different than a bus or boat ride and worth the i.5 hours.

This is great. This is 1.5 hours in length. You spend 45 minutes in the water and 45 minutes on land. You get some history about the area. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The cost is reasonable. I would definitely recommend this attraction. It is alot of fun and great for all ages.

I have to start this review stating I have been on several Duck and open bus tours in several cities. This by far has been the worst experience I have ever had in this type of venue. Our guide, and I am sorry I probably will spell her name wrong, Maytae, was very knowledgeable of the history of the area.... More

You should take a Duck Tour when you are in South Beach. It is great for all ages, except the very young. My husband and I really enjoyed it. We were able to see the beautiful, expensive homes that line the beach. Six cruise ships were in the harbor the day we had the tour. Our tour guide was terrific.... More

We went on this tour with eight of our family. The experience began with the office staff being so unaccommodating and rude. Then the tour of the bay began and the "captain" as he calls himself- passed too close to another boat that he actually got stuck in the anchor line. This was dangerous on a cold windy day and...

Loved the energy of our hostess 'Maitay?' And all the Miami based tunes especially on a freezing cold day. The ocean tour of all the mansions was fun although a tad awkward if any of them had been trying to enjoy a sunny day with us all gawping at them. We did get to see dolphins jumping in a natural...

What a great way to spend 90 minutes in South Beach. Board the bus by their James Avenue location. Ride through various areas of interests, then plunge into the bay for a boat ride without ever leaving your seat. Tour guide was a very funny guy. End up the tour in Ocean BLVD. Lots of fun.
