“Something to do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The tour doesn't have a parking lot so be sure to get there early. The tour does take you out and points out past and current star homes. Don't expect to see any stars as most have put trees up to block views. The water portion is slow but is something different to do. The last part drives you thru some of the art deco buildings. The tour is good to do when you want to do something that doesn't take long and you don't have to walk. If your looking for a fast pace detailed history tour then this is not for you. I would have a good lunch then cruise on the tour. Tip: Be sure to go to the bathroom before you go as none are on the duck. If you don't like loud music sit in the back.

“Great tour and Awesome guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Our tour guide "Bart" from NY, was a blast...very funny and entertaining. We(myself and my 16 and 14yo sons) loved the mix of Miami's history and fun. The "Quack Mobile" is a great way to see around....land and water at the same time. It was very easy to claim our vouchers....and the tour was on time. We stayed in Miami just for 2 days, so this tour was something that didn't take a lot of our time... we had plenty of time to enjoy South Beach after the tour.
