“fun tour”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Our guide included everyone in his irreverent approach to the tour. He kept everyone involved and had a great spontaneous sense of humor. We especially loved the tacky songs he played while we drove down South Beach past all the trendy out door eateries. The looks on peoples' faces as he addressed them over the loud speaker was worth the price. We especially liked the drive past the art deco buildings. The vantage point from the over sized bus made for great photos. The view of the Miami skyline was also beautiful as we hit the waters of Biscayne Bay.
Very different tour but gets you out of your comfort zone.

“Family time on the duck tour”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This tour was super fun.There was a lot of local information that was quite useful.The tour guide had a lot of fun trivia questions and gave out little ducks as a prize. I answered 10 questions and never got one(just saying) I took my 7yr old niece and she loved it.The boat moved a little to slowly for my taste but we still enjoyed the tour very much.The music was a little out dated, YMCA,is a classic, but oldie.

“Entertaining AND Informative 90 Minutes!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We only had a short time to spend in South Beach and wanted a quick tour of the area, and this fit our time frame. Captain Fritz provided a safe trip on land and water, and tour guide Richie kept us laughing the whole time while giving us an interesting history of the Art Deco architectural style and general culture of South Beach. He played a lot of upbeat music, humorously interacted with random people on the street, threw out a lot of facts and had a phenomenal talent for remembering guests' names and pulling them into his spiel. On the water part of the tour, he pointed out many beautiful and expensive homes of the rich and famous - who knows the accuracy of it all but we had fun with the details. Great fun and I'd recommend it to everyone - well, I'm not sure the elderly couple enjoyed the craziness of it all, but the rest of us did!

I had never been to Miami but have done duck tours in other cities. It was a fun tour with lots of interesting and fun tidbits about the area. If you prefer a real serious tour then this isn't for you but if you like a fun atmosphere while learning about an area then this is for you!
