“Duck Tours of Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

While in Miami my friend Steven organised for me to do a Duck Tour. It was a 90 min land/water tour of Miami. It was very entertaining, especially having the tour guide Ritchie, he is very funny and got the participation of the people onboard. While on the water he also gave us the opportunity to take pictures of the mansions on Star Island. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone planning a trip to South Beach.

“Great land & water tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We went on the 90 minute land/water duck boat tour while at South Beach. It is a great way to see some sights without committing 4-5 hours. Our guide Ritchie was awesome, he was friendly and very funny and kept us all engaged throughout the tour. The best part was cruising down Ocean Drive playing loud music and watching him converse with random people on the street. Our driver Fritz did an excellent job and we felt 100% safe on land and in the water!

“Duck Tour Miami is worth the time and money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I agree with the comments contained in other reviews. Our guide was irreverent and engaging, and tried to give out interesting facts and engage the folks on the tour. We went in the water first and then and then back on land to view art deco buildings along Ocean Blvd. The boat is not swift in the water as noted, but speed is not the primary selling point of this tour. We had fun and would recommend the tour.
