Great Tour - Too much emphasis on gratuities

The Venice of America tour was a very nice experience for me and my family. The tour guide was very well informed and provided a wealth of information about Fort Lauderdale and the "Rich and Famous" homes and yachts that we saw. The intercom did cut out occasionally causing us to miss some details. Also the entire crew seemed too focused on reminding everyone that tips were appreciated. Even going so far as to mock someone for not tipping the bartender. As someone who always tips generously, I found the reminders offensive, but perhaps so many people don't bother to show their appreciation, the crew feels that the reminders are necessary. Anyway, I would recommend this tour if you are in Fort Lauderdale and would like to get out on the water and learn a little about the previous and current owners of some amazing properties and yachts.

Be aware if staying in a hotel and booking on line

I would not buy Zerve on line tickets again. After purchasing the tickets it became clear that it was necessary to have them printed out and take them to the ticket office. As we were staying in a hotel altough internet was free in the room, we had no printing facilities in the room. So we had no option but to go to the hotel's business center to use their internet (minimum charge $7.00 for 20 minutes) and print out the ticket voucher (further $1.00 per page) . We would have saved the $8.00 had we not used Zerve but bought the tickets directly at the ticket booth. The river cruise itself was excellent. Much, much better than the cruises available in Miami.

My fiance and I enjoyed this tour of extravagant houses and boats. The scenere was breat-taking, and we couldn't take enough pictures. The only negative was the weather--too windy and a little chilly.The crew was friendly and helpfull. I'd higly recomand this atraction Richard& Vanna

It's what dreams are made of.

The tour was a great option of things to see and do while in Ft. Lauderdale. The mansions and yatchs you get to see are unbelievable. The tour guide was fun and filled with lots of exciting info with regards to some of the owners and previous owners of the homes along the way. Would definitely reccomend to others. While living here you get to see a lot of these homes, but this is from a different perspective. It what dreams are made of.

Very good tour in most respects
Sat, Dec 5, 09   5:00 PM steve522 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Overall, the tour was very enjoyable. The tour operators provided some very interesting stories about some of the homes on Millionaire's Row and gave some interesting historical tidbits about Fort Lauderdale. The beverage selection was good, although there weren't too many food options. The only thing I didn't find particularly pleasant was the forced picture-taking at the beginning of the tour and how they tried to sell you the picture at the end. Kind of a cheesy way to make extra money.
