“Way more fun than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

It was a bit hard to find at first, as its on a pier obsconded by a mall near the Hard Rock cafe. We went on the 6:30 tour which was perfect as the mansions were seen in daylight, but the ride back to the city was during sunset. The music was hilarious, the driving was awesome fast and furious and my fiancee and I couldn't stop smiling. Plus it took half as long as the other tours to see the same amount of stuff. The sound system was great and the tour guide was funny and had some great info.

“great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

just took this tour and had a great time. The tour shows quite a few celebrity homes and we even saw Rosie Odonnel wave to us as she was getting on her jet ski from her home. Our guides were great , lots of fun. Would do it again when I'm in the area.

“Funny but lacks updated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The speedboat ride is one of the typical tours of South Beach. The walk through the port of Miami the busiest U.S., the speed in the open sea, the Atlantic Ocean and a visit to Star Island which is a short drive to the houses that were famous and some yet to be.
If this is the first time this trip is fine. But honestly lacks updated and add something more interesting to this ride.

“What a RUSH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Fastest boat tour in Miami. Tour starts off pretty mild with a trip up Cruise Ship Alley, then off to look at the Stars Homes. This is all well and good, but the best part is when you head out into the open water just off South Beach! That's where the "THRILL" in Thriller comes to life. We were out jumping waves and have a great time. We had a great time...highly recommended.

Beware those at the back can expect to get wet!

“"Hold on!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Hold on to you seat! What a ride! Spent the day with our group of 10 and booked the 11:00 trip. The guys that were running the boat that day were funny and friendly. My husband and I sat in the back, which is a very wet spot, just FYI. But we didn't care. We had a blast jumping waves and doing doughnuts in the ocean. Had a nice slow tour of "Star Island" and also "Fisher Island." We had about 20 people on the boat and we probably hit speeds in excess of 35mph. It was pretty cool seeing the million dollar yachts everywhere you looked. Also there were 5 cruise ships in port and it was unreal to see the size of them. Hands down if you are looking for a thrill, you need to go on this tour. You definetly won't regret it!
