This bus/boat went from land to sea ... I didn't grasp the concept at the beginning ... I couldn't figure it out but when he said we will be... More

I wasn't sure if this would be a good tour or a tacky tour but it really was a good and fun way to see a lot of the small private islands around South Beach. You start out by boarding the duck mobile. The narrator is a very friendly guy who learns your name and uses as many as he... More

Our tour guide Richie and driver Sharkie made our tour a memorable one. Tour travels through South Beach area and guide points out places of interest and provides brief historical accounts of the area. The tour enters Biscane Bay and you cruise the water where the guide points out the houses of famous people. After the bay tour you cruise... More

This is a fun way to see the city as a first time visitor. The staff is fun and the scenery beautiful. We didn't get too close to anything at sea to really see much...the tour was a bit rushed and kept moving. It was uncomfortable sitting in traffic on a Duck Boat....there is only so much the tour guide... More

Decided to take tour based on recommendation from waiter at Penguin restaurant. Was too cold and windy for beach day (albeit, didn't think about water splashing up on water which made it even colder!). Richie was our tour guide and he was a blast!!! Only disappointment is we did not get as close Star Island homes as expected. Thought it... More

The tour was a lot of fun, the tour guide Richie was very entertaining. The land and sea your was informational, if not brief. It's about half land and half sea. Worth the cost to do at least once.

I tried several times to purchase tickets with Duck Tours but was rebuffed 3 times in one day. Tour operator must be awash with funds to allow rides to be partially full and to refuse customers. Tour Operator has their own theory of operation that if it was straightforward and standardized might work. But if you do not follow their... More
