Very good tour in most respects

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.

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!

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.

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.
