Our tour group had a wonderful ride this morning along the river and a bit out into the bay - beautiful views of Miami's architechture and then a trip through history as we went along the river - buildings, hotels, good people, bad people and the Seminole Indians. It's all happened on the rivers and canals in Miami over the... More

The boat is clean, nice ride. Tour guide was sarcastic, not entertaining at all. At the end of the tour she told the passengers that herself and the crew do NOT earn any wages, only paid in tips and suggested we give a tip up to 40.00 saying that it had to be shared between the 4 staff. I believed... More

The trip was nice and leisurely with a nice narration of what we were seeing. There were the obligatory bad jokes but they really weren't that bad and fit in with the cruises attention to "Millionaire's Row." The homes were beautiful and the stories about their owners just lent themselves to some bad jokes, like the inventor of Viagra. I... More

Even though this is a very touristy attraction I liked it. It was a good 90 minutes of relaxing, enjoying the weather and looking at stunning houses. Houses...or mansions that you otherwise wouldnt be able to getting as close to. Tourguide was good and also have some facts about Miami

This 90 minute harbour area tour is satisfactory as is the ship but nothing special, what I find disturbing is the staff who sell the tickets are so cold, impersonal, have know people skills, very cold, unhelpful and have a DGAS attitude to customers. Considering this is a huge tourist city and event, these people are so unpolished and lack... More

Very comfortable cruise showing where I am glad I don't have to pay taxes on. It is a good add on to 24 hour hop-on Hop-off tours.

We added this cruise to a hop-on hop-off bus ticket as a way to get a different view of the city. The ride was nice, the views were beautiful and we learned a little about the history and residents of the Miami area. Just beware of the raffle - you win by losing!

We went on board at 16:00h so we had a great view on the city lights on our way back. On the way up we saw 2 dolphins in front of a mega yacht. Guide was ok, you can have drinks on board. We saw some great villa's during the tour.

We were going to go on a Miami City tour boat cruise. There was nothing posted to indicate that Island Queen ran this cruise but we found it anyhow. The first annoying thing was being instructed on our way to get on the boat to stop to have a posed photo. Shortly after the boat departed 2 "Reps" from carnival... More
