We only had two days in Miami and took the Duck Tour to see some of the sights. It was good fun with a really up beat tour guide who seemed more like a DJ than a tour guide but he knew his facts and he was really entertaining. It was a great way to spend two hours.

We had a great time taking the duck tour while in Miami. We had the city pass and used it. When the bus goes in the water, that is really cool. Our tour guide had lots of trivia and gave us a lot of information. The only problem is if you talked while sitting at the front, he said something... More

From the moment you start your host has you in stiches right to the end of the ride. A very informative tour with a bit of history, trivia and star gazing. Once the vehicle becomes amphibian the ride is actually smother. Definitely a must and If I ever come back will do it again. Great job crew....

This was a quick 90 minute tour of the mansions on the bay. A little bit of trivia about architecture of the city, then a drive down Ocean Drive. The tour guide was fun and made clean family jokes along the way.

I really enjoyed this tour, we got to see a huge portion of Miami on both land and water. Its was fun and upbeat the entire time. The tour guide "Boogaloo" was hilarious. This is totally worth doing while in South Beach.

This tour was pretty fun and jam packed with interesting history and information about Miami, its architecture and all the small surrounding islands. Our tour guide Rick was very engaging, funny and knowledgeable. He made jokes, sang and interacted with us and people in the streets and waters of Miami. This tour was tons of fun!!!
