Soon after your journey on our "Ducks" through South Beach begins, you will quickly realize that you are engaged in an interactive performance that far exceeds your standard tour expectations!Each tour guide has a background in acting/comedy to ensure a highly entertaining experience for each passenger complete with jokes, music, plenty of interaction and of course "quacking".

“It was ok, the tour guide was the highlight tho!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

We went on this tour on the 3rd day as we have been putting it off for the past 3 trips haha, I would say that the tour guide was fantastic and it does show you where you could possibly go walking and to dine. But overall I thought it could of been so much better, it showed me all the multi million dollar homes, to be honest I could really care less where the rich folk live. They want to seperate themselves from us NORMAL PPL then why should I care. But it could of taken us around Miami a bit more, which I would of paid for. All in all it is informative to a degree the tour guide is a lot of fun, but could of been better.

“A great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Booked this tour as a surprise for my family and i wasn't disappointed. We were only in Miami for one afternoon and it was the perfect way to see a lot of the sights when you only have a couple of hours to spare.
The booking process online was quick and easy and the tour itself was well organized.

“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.
