I'd been on one duck tour before (Austin, TX) but this was a lot more like a comedy show and almost more of a tour of the Hollywood stars homes on the various exclusive islands than a tour of South Beach, but the important thing is that you absolutely get the fun, party vibe of Miami. Our guide Richie and our driver (Captain) Willie were great. We did see a lot of Miami art deco (not as impressive as I thought it would be although the neon at night may make the architecture more distinctive), learned a lot of Miami history, saw a lot of fancy boats and mansions, took pictures of Biscayne Bay, and enjoyed people watching on Ocean Drive as we cruised down the street in a bouncing, amphibious duck boat. All in 90 minutes. Definitely worthwhile.

I cannot say enough what a great experience the Ducks Tours trip was. I am a local middle school teacher and we brought about 80 students and chaperons on this trip. The tour traveled mostly around Miami Beach and the Intercoastal, and it lasted about an hour and a half. In addition, our guides were extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the entire time. We learned fascinating details about the history and architecture of Miami and because the tour has the unique ability to travel on land and sea, we also got an up close look at several famous landmarks and sites. Our guides created a fun and relaxing atmosphere, and both our students and chaperons loved every minute of it.

I also want to mention how great the Duck Tours staff was in our planning of the trip. I learned that it’s a family-owned business, which was evident in their extremely friendly manner throughout the planning of the trip and during the actual trip itself. They worked well with our group and did a great job accommodating our size and various needs.

I highly recommend this tour, for both tourists and locals alike. It’s really worth every penny!

We took the late afternoon tour that ended at sunset which was an added treat. This was well worth the money and the crew were very funny.
