Before the tour begins, the bus/boat is on the road, waiting for it's customers.... but they will not let you on. Why won't they let you on? Because, at the last second before the tour begins, no wait, make that, 5 minutes after the tour is supposed to begin, they set out a life preserver on a tripod and want... More

The guide was so intertwining it made the tout more enjoyable. We went by land and water. This was my first time in this vehicle. I must say, it was fun getting in and out of the water. The guide was very well informed about Miami history. Celebrities and their homes. I signed up on line. It was easy to... More

I went with a friend ready to have a good time on Monday 4 August. When we got to the ramp where we were supposed to go in the water it was closed! Surely because a big storm was coming! We rode fifteen minutes to the other ramp which was near Bayside, went in the water fast, trying to scape... More

This tour was on my summer "to-do" list because my kids haven't stopped talking about our duck tour in Boston last summer. I had really high hopes based on other reviews. The tour was entertaining and interesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable, but unfortunately the kids were all quite bored. (8, 5 & 3) They had very little... More

Admittedly, I was unimpressed for our unforseen change of scheduling.... but Lynett did a good job of advising me, but we had to change our plans... which was the BEST decision made in hindsight .. Our host /guide Richie was the bomb!!! You made my very bad day disappear and provided with an exceptionally interactive tour. .. simply put.. Brillant!!... More

A good fun tour with Boogaloo and Captain Fritz. It takes in Biscayne Bay and Ocean Drive, a fun way to spend 90 minutes in South Beach

Well worth the money. The tour guide was very professional and very informative. You get to see some the homes of celebrities. You learn some interesting facts about So. Beach and you get to interact with the passersby. Also, the two sisters were very nice and sweet young ladies.

Our guide was Bart and he kept the tour lively and fun. Loved going on the water and seeing the fancy houses from the sea side. Driving thru So. Beach was a blast because you sit up high and can look down on the cafes and people. It was worth the $$.
