If you only take one tour of Miami I'd recommend this one if only for the exuberance of the tour guides. The tour of the land is limited to getting to and from the water access, however some interesting facts nonetheless. If you like to ose into the lives of the rich and famous this tour is for you

This is a great way to see both South Beach and Biscayne Bay. We were given a tour of South Beach and then the bus went into the water and we took a tour of the very rich homes and then back to South Beach. The tour lasted about an hour and a half and was very entertaining. Great for... More

Our guide named Mi-te was super hilarious. She had me laughing the whole ride, her out-goingness, funniness and positive attitude brought so much fun on the ride. She was very informative and very hilarious! Her jokes were funny and the stuff she did. She brought a lot of joy on the bus and everyone had a great time. I would... More

During a recent holiday in the Keys we decided to spend a day in Miami, particularly South Beach. Once there we spotted the Duck tours vehicle and with the combination of heat and the size of the area, decided that this would be a good way to see more of the area. We spoke to the driver who was very... More

My husband and I wanted to get a better understanding of Miami and where we were staying, so taking a tour seemed like a good idea. In fact, the whole experience was better than good - it was fantastic! Our host, Richie and captain Sharky (say it....) were entertaining and informative and their use of music had us dancing in...

We thought it would be very "touristy" and it was ...but it was a lot of fun! The tour guide was very funny and knowledgeable. Actually learned some interesting facts. The water tour goes around the islands and the captain knew when to slow down so we could take in the sights. Even saw Dolphins. Excellent music as well. Make... More

Had a great time on our recent Duck Tour of South Beach. Richie was our guide and he was extremely entertaining and informative. He mixed in comedy with pertinent facts about Miami and the South Beach area. I was very impressed with all of the knowledge that Richie shared. Miami is not so much a historical city such as Boston,... More

Overall, the tour was fun and informative. We parked next to the ticket location, which made it very accessible. It was definitely worth $20. Street parking is non-existent.

If you've never been on a bus tour in Miami, this is a good one to start with. Very entertaining and worth the cost. I loved that we got to sail in the water what seemed to be almost 40 minutes of the tour. Interesting fun facts were shared, and music! Recommend.
