Duck tours are always dependent on the guide. The one we had was a hilarious, telling us about Miami and joking the whole trip. It a short tour but worth every penny. Can't wait to take another one in a defferent city this summer .

Really enjoyed the tour and our guide. Gives you a good overview of Miami Beach - takes you out onto Biscayne Bay to view some of the mansions then back on the road around South Beach. Great to do if you only have an short time in Miami.

This was a fun trip. There's not a lot of history in Miami, compared to other cities with duck tours. What you get here is mostly pop culture info and I don't think much of celebrities. That being said, it was a nice day and fun ride with plenty of bad jokes. I would do it again!

Frankly, this was NOT on my list of things to do in South Beach. I've been married long enough to know that when my wife suggests we do something, I do it whether I think it's a good idea or not. The tour was just long enough and showed us interesting landmarks that had historical and entertainment significance. Hitting the... More

I was excited to try a Duck Boat with my family. We found a Groupon which saved us a lot and were excited to try it out. The bus/boat combo is a cool idea. Having a chance to go out on the bay was great and we did get to see more sights that we would have if we were... More

This is a really nice way to get around South Beach and to hear about some of the history of the city's development. Certainly best to book via Groupon as it is significantly cheaper.

Kids home from college on winter break, tried to do this 2 years ago but it was sold out. So glad we bought tickets online this time.

It was a 90 minutes tour with some part of it on land and some part in the ocean. Our guide (a lady, forgot her name :( ) was really good, she entertained us with her hilarious anecdotes. She was also very informative. She engaged the audience by addressing them with their names, cracking jokes and distributed souvenirs with the... More

seats are very cramped and with little kids on lap can't move at all for 90 minutes. a little bit too pricey in my mind for 90 minutes in such accommodations, for example could spend the entire day at jungle island for that price and get a whole day as opposed to 90 minutes. tour guide was good though.
