Great tour. I have done them in other cities. This one starts right in South Beach and enters the water to offer sight of the bay and celeb homes. Tour guide was fantastic, very entertaining and aware of the area. A great, affordable way to spend a few hours on a nice day.

Took the last bus/boat out at 5pm. Our guide Richie really made the trip for us. He was funny, and coaxed the passengers to be part of the experience. He did little quizzes and remembered the names of people who participated. He even had us interact with people and boats we passed. Bravo to Richie for being so well informed.... More

The idea of a bus going into the water and cruising like a ship was very interesting, the tour guide was great, she did a great job. So was the captain.

Be aware that there are several "Duck Boat Tours" in this area. They all appear to work together selling tickets online for full tours and refusing to refund your money when they get caught. Do not buy online. Make sure you are at the exact location of the tour you wish to take. We have taken MANY Duck Boat Tours... More

Hilarious tour! Very, very well done. Ritchie and Sharky are a great team. Ritchie makes everyone laugh throughout the entire tour. While Ritchie does provide plenty of information, his priority is your entertainment. He knows everyone's name by the end of the tour and feels like a friend by the time you depart. Half the time you spend in Biscayne... More

When it comes to tours, I believe it's the tour guide who makes or breaks the whole experience. Our tour guide Richie was a blast. He kept us involved and laughing the entire time while showing us the most beautiful parts of South Beach and sharing his knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour if you're in Miami!

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.
