“Duck Tour South Beach; Lots of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I had taken comprehensive boat and land tours of Miami twice, but my daughter had not been with me, and she didn't have time for the all day tour, so we opted for the shorter, 90 minute Duck Tour of South Beach. It was a lot of fun, and informative. I recommend it if your time is limited, and you want something shorter than the longer, more inclusive tours. It's light and fun, but you do see things, and learn things about Miami Beach along the way.

“Duck Tours of Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

While in Miami my friend Steven organised for me to do a Duck Tour. It was a 90 min land/water tour of Miami. It was very entertaining, especially having the tour guide Ritchie, he is very funny and got the participation of the people onboard. While on the water he also gave us the opportunity to take pictures of the mansions on Star Island. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone planning a trip to South Beach.

“Great land & water tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We went on the 90 minute land/water duck boat tour while at South Beach. It is a great way to see some sights without committing 4-5 hours. Our guide Ritchie was awesome, he was friendly and very funny and kept us all engaged throughout the tour. The best part was cruising down Ocean Drive playing loud music and watching him converse with random people on the street. Our driver Fritz did an excellent job and we felt 100% safe on land and in the water!
