The trip on the boat and the conmmentary by the captain were very good. Scenery was great and his knowledge of the area and interesting comments were all good. The area of the dock in that deserted shopping center was not so great. I would find a different launch place. Overall good trip. Well done.

Staff continually on the lookout for tips after having paid a fair sum for a journey which others do for less $ p.s. Buy your ticket at the boat and save $2 a head on line fixing fee (fix what They tell you about the fix till the end and at the beginning they say you must book on line !!!!!! Try it.

for $88.00 dollars, not really worth it. Three adults and two children. Eight and five year olds were bored, no snacks, only soda, no juices. The Intercoastal is noce and the boat should have gone more north and inland to see the otehr houses rather than the port which had no cruise ships in it whatsoever. Nice to have an open bar but when your captain and crew are always looking for a tip it becomes annoying

We live in the area and the Venice of America boat tour is a "must" whenever we are entertaining friends or family who come to stay with us. It is a wonderfully relaxing and entertaining tour, a perfect duration, and a visual feast for the eyes to see and learn about so many exotic residences that line the banks of the waterways. One of the things that makes this particular tour unique is the quality of the boat, especially with its luxurious air-conditioned lower deck and on-board bar. We chartered this company's sister yacht, the Anticipation IV, for our wedding reception 13 years ago, and the boat used for the Venice tour seems to be just a scaled-down version of that same luxury vessel. One can find other "stars homes" boat tours, for example in Miami Bayside, but they tend to have a much more "touristy" feel to them and the boats are not as comfortable. With frequent guests visiting us in Florida, we have returned to the Venice of America tour probably 7 or 8 times now, and never grow tired of repeating this experience.

You can't beat an hour and a half tour of Ft Lauderdale for $20, especially with an open bar! My wife and I were in the area on vacation, and we gave this place a shot, and we were not disappointed. It isn't necessarily the most exciting, but it was fun to cruise around and see all of the mansions and yachts in the area. I would recommend this tour.

The first thing that I would like to say is there should be better dirsctions given for parking and getting to the boat. ie: park in public garage and proceed toward canal. The cruise was really informative and exciting. The duration was just right for the sights that were seen. I liked the complimentary drinks and AC cabin as well as it is QUITE hot in Florida. I would recommend this cruise to someone as a must see when in the area.

Staff was friendly and tour was informative and had lots of little jokes to keep you entertained. Free bar was limited but rum punch was good.
