Jaw dropping and Funny

This is my second trip on the boat and it was just fantastic. The boat only had about 12 people on this trip so the guide came up to the top to give us a more personal tour of the huge mansions and all the cool sites. He was very funny and we got to learn alot. I highly would recommend this trip!

Very good but not as good as a local competitor

We enjoyed Riverfront's cruise on the Fort Lauderdale River. We'd previously been on a Fort Lauderdale river cruise with another cruise line and while Riverfront was very good, the other cruise line was better for the following reasons: 1) The other cruise line's speaker/guide did not take a break during the cruise, The Riverfront speaker/guide took two breaks of about ten to fifteen minutes each and during the breaks we sort of lost interest in the tour since we had no idea of what we were seeing. 2) While the other cruise line's tour was 1 1/2 hours, as was Riverfront's, the other cruise line's tour seemed much longer. I think Riverfront's speaker/guide held our attention for a shorter period of time Please don't get me wrong, Riverfront's tour was very good but we enjoyed the other cruise better.

worth the trip

If you enjoy lavish homes and appreciate boats be sure to take the tour. You won't be dissappointed. I'm an avid boater and yacht owner however some of these boats make mine look like a dingy. Have fun!

The guide was very good with entertaining stories about the the houses and the families that owned them. I was disappointed that towards the end of the tour two different families turned their little girls loose to run wild on the upper deck and nothing was said to them so we could no longer hear the tour. The tour guide should have told the families to control their kids so the rest of the tour could enjoy the trip.

Everything was was good, even the on board officer/comedian. The wealth of the homes and then findingout the history of the home was great. The could easily be the vest value in the greater Miami/Ft..Lauderdale area.

Good Tour with Distractions

The crew and the tour was excellent. Unfortunately, we had a drunk on board who disrupted 1/2 of the trip with extremely loud talking. The crew eventually took the person downstairs and isolated them to the front of the boat. We then enjoyed the remainder of the tour.

ticket man mislead customers

had wonderful time. guide was good. While we were waiting on boat several people stopped to purchase tickets and all asked for wednesday $9.95 deal. they were told there was no deal. (that's how I purchased mine). one family asked to speak to someone who they could talk to about deal and man said there was no deal to talk about. I didn't say anything but should have. tour was great. maybe 20 people. when we docked big steam boat looking ship passed and both top and bottom was full 100+ people. they must have honored their deal.
