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.

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.

SIT BACK AND RELAX

The "Good"---Take the Riverfront tour and bring your sunscreen! It's a nice, relaxing ride....not quite long enough to plan your whole day around, but well worth the price. Daytime tours are sun-filled, so bring water! The crew is nice and the Captain is knowledgeable, however, if you are so busy talking to other passengers, you'll miss the humor the Captain relates in his tour narration. Paying attention is half the fun! Just feet away from the ship are good, outdoor eateries, but food and drink are also available on board. Again, if you pay attention to the narration, you'll have the opportunity to win a free drink with a guessing game. My tour was on Wednesday at half-price, with drinks not included but tours with included drinks are also available for a few dollars more, without breaking the bank! Either way, it's fun. The "Bad"---Know where you are going when you drive to the boat! This location is not easy to find. Your can park on either side of the river but you'll take a hike if you choose the side near the jail. Bring a good pair of sneakers and have have plenty of change on hand for parking meters! If you park on the same side of the river as the tour is located, there is a parking deck but bring a hand-held GPS unit to get you to the ticket booth! All-in-all, it's a good time for all. Bring a few dollars to tip the crew and have a good, digital camera in hand and ready to use. Say thanks to the Captain! Remember, don't be sooooo busy talking that you miss the narration and keep in mind that others will miss what is said because you are talking! As an added bonus, if you have some free time, watch how long it takes for the train to come across the bridge once the warning sounds and the bridge lowers! Hint, bring a deck of cards or a scrabble board while waiting for the train!

Cool Tour

This was a cool little tour. Grab a snack at the Riverfront area and get on the boat. Just a nice little cruise where you can see some nice homes and ride on the water. Priced right and doesn't consume your whole day.

I had the privilege of taking the Venice of America Tour on March 11th, and I highly recommend it for those who enjoy boating and seeing spectacular houses. Definitely bring your camera to get some great pics to show to the folks back home. The tour guide was great in giving information about the many houses and boats on the tour.
