Fun Experience

The duck boat tours were fun. Our capitan and tour guide were great. Mai Tai was very fun and informative. It was fun for both adults and kids.

I do not recommend this in the heat of summer. The boat moves about 3 mph and there is no breeze. Rear seat get all the heat from the engine-do NOT sit in rear! Was super slow and rather boring - kids actually fell asleep. Might be somewhat enjoyable for the elderly but energetic kids-forget it. They could also care... More

This was, without a doubt, the best way to get around and tour with two boys (age 5 and 11) in tow. We bought our tickets; quackers and drinks at the office on James Street. We walked over to Lincoln for the tour. They offer a picture for $10 which we purchased upon our return from the tour. Our guide,... More

Got off to a slow start but were won over by our tour guide, Bart. He was a wealth of information, especially about the art deco style of architecture. He did a marvelous job of entertaining us.

It takes-3 hours. It is very interesting, also a weird sensation to go from asphalt to water and then back to asphalt. You will know interesting places in Miami and beach top tier properties. Try to do it at the last tour in the afternoon, for the guide plays with customers at Ocean Drive, and it's a real moving party... More

When it's raining, it's pouring. The weather was miserable and we got whipped by strong rain and wind, kind of a downer. On a brighter note: - it is possible to reserve and buy the ticket online last minute - pick up office (ticket) is 2 mins by foot from the meeting point - city and sea tour probably shows... More

What an interesting vehicle - we first did a tour around the city and then hit the water - in the same vehicle! The tour guide, Regina, was entertaining, funny and informative. You have to do this .... great experience
