We went as a school with children of 3 and 4 years old. We had an amazing experience and the people of Duck tours were very nice and interactive with us. I really recommend you to go on this trip with your family or school. Thank you very much Duck tours!!

We had Dee Dee Duckworth as the tour guide. She made the tour fun and interesting. The tour is quite informative about the South Beach area.

Ducks are a fun way to see the beautiful sites of South Beach on land and water. Only downfall was our rutter broke causing us to be stuck in the water for an extra 30 minutes while the driver fixed it. Our fun tour guide boogaloo made the most of the delay and kept us entertained.

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
