We were a group of 8 persons and were initially booked for the Duck Tour at 3 pm yesterday. We left from Boca Raton at 1 pm but unfortunately we got stuck in traffic near the Golden Glades. Sensing delay, we called Duck Tours and amended the booking from the 3 pm tour to the 5 pm tour. A gentleman... More

We found the tour boring. There was a lot of silent time when the guide could have been telling us more interesting facts about Miami. The tour starts on land and then goes into the water. I would recommend trying something else.

It looked like kind of a joke, tourist attraction.. but we all had a BLAST. Enhanced by "Richie" our slick, talkative guide, we saw South Beach and then plowed into the bay to swing by the $50M houses on the various islands. All along the way, Richie laughed, talked, played music... he was GREAT!! Do go, get an idea of... More

The tour was more enjoyable than I had anticipated. Not only did our tour guide (Richie) make the trip entertaining, he was also very knowledgable regarding Miami's history and culture. Definately worthwhile.
