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.

This was a great way to see Miami. The tour guide we had was lots of fun and had a great way of interacting with everyone. He had us singing and enjoying the time we spent on the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour.

He tried to make it interesting but honestly, we didn't see anything more than what my husband and I had already sought out. I was hoping to go by Little Havana...must have gotten mixed up. Wynwood arts district was pointed out from the freeway, really? Can't say I would recommend this to anyone unless you're hot and lazy.

Duck Tours gives a great running commentary as you pass the various attractions including the art deco area on shore and the island's residents on the islands that you pass as you boat pass them. The commentator (Mitee)'was entertaining and knowledgeable. She engaged the visitors in the tour...very personable. It was a fun way to spend time on land and... More

First time to South Beach Miami FL. We only had an afternoon to spend there. We wanted to be able to check as much of South Beach as we could with the short time we had. What better way to do this than with a tour by land and sea. The tour guide was a blast. Very funny, lots of... More

This is a great diversion while in South Beach. Departing on the hour from Lincoln Road, between Collins and Washington, the tour covers highlights in Biscayne Bay, and a tour of Ocean Drive and the art deco disctrict. Our tour host, Boogaloo, was entertaining and informative, and kept the crowd laughing with his observations and corny jokes. Well worth the... More

Nice, inexpensive way to spend a Sunday afternoon, especially if you have an out of town guest. The "amphibian" vehicle is very cheesy looking, but the tour itself is good. It takes you around a small portion of South Beach and on the water via Biscayne Bay. Make sure to give yourself an extra half hour of travel time, since... More
