This is a great tour. Lots of fun, entertaining and very interesting. You ride in a big, open, amphibious bus with a tour guide dressed kind of as a pirate (not sure why, as the pirate theme is not a significant part of the experience) that gave us an excellent tour of South Beach, from land and water.
While the land portion is good, the real focus was the water part of the tour - as this great big bus drove right into the bay and motored all around Star Island, Fisher Island, Monument Island, etc. We saw homes of many of the rich and famous who reside in Miami Beach - Shaq, Gloria Estefan (considered a saint around here), Jackie Chan, Rosie O'Donnell, Andre Agassi & Stephie Graf, P Diddy, Julio Iglesias, Enrique Iglesias, Paul Hogan (Crocodile Dundee), the founder of Parker Pens, the guy who invented the magnetic stripe on credit cards... Pretty remarkable.
Our guide, named Kennesaw, was superb. Very animated, friendly and super informative. He made the afternoon.
We aren't tourists - residents of Broward - but always wanted to do one of these. Highly recommended!
