My husband and I decided to take an impromptu 90-min Biscayne Bay cruise during our vacation. The staff was friendly and informative. The boat was clean and comfortable. The sightseeing offered views of yachts and mansions. We enjoyed the sun, the sights and the cruise.

Went on the mega millionaire tour at the 6pm time slot. Perfect timing for great pictures of the Miami skyline. The tour guide Amelia was great. Able to see several homes of the rich and famous. The tour was truly 90mins. Towards the end they offer a 'drawing' which is essentially choosing three people to try to sell vacations to... More

We booked the "Millionaire's Row Cruise" at the special rate of $20/per person as we walked up to Bayside. The ride is nice and some of the homes are really nice but for the most part these million dollar homes are owned by people you've probably never heard of, but you know what they are famous for. Drugs, Popular items,... More

Half the homes "used to be owned by" and insert a famous name. The most interesting was the one once owned by Al Capone. The tour is quite the display of wealth, such as the family that felt claustrophobic with 7 people in an 11-bedroom home so they built another mansion next door or the German millionaire whose air conditioning...

My girlfriend and I didn't have much things to do that day, so we found this tour which is 90 minutes long and not so expensive. We thought it was going to be very crowded with lots of tourists, but it wasn't. The views of the artificial islands is very impresive. You can see the famous people's mansions very closely... More

This is obviously just a personal opinion, but this tour seems most interested in pointing out the luxury pads of celebrities on their exclusive islands, and that doesn't engage me at all. If it does you then you'll love it. Boat was ok, staff were fine, I found the commentary more than I wanted and the seating uncomfortable. It is... More

You have lots of cruise options in Miami but this one offers probably the best experience. First of all their staff can speak fluently in both English and Spanish languages which is what was lacking with other companies. Their tour includes great views of Miami Skyline, Star Islands and other attractions in Biscayne Bay.

It is clearly a popular and well managed cruise, but at thirty bucks for ninety minutes, plus tip--OK the commentary was polished and funny, so no problem there--plus you could get tagged for your photo on the gangplank (forty bucks?!!) and maybe a refreshment on board. This is building up to a pricey way to see what colour the Beckhams... More

We took a cruise on a Friday morning and the boat barely had 10 other passengers. The ride was very slow and smooth. You are given some nice information regarding the Port, Cruise Ships, Bridges, city and of course the main event of the tour is Star Island and the Celebrity Home sightings. Some of the homes you see are... More

Recommend this trip - 90 minutes, and that was enough time to see what we wanted. The tours are informative and cover all kinds of interesting subjects, fun facts and fascinating histories - not just a tour of the properties of the super-rich. Recommend seats on the top deck at the back-left - worked out well for almost all of... More
