Excellent guided tour of the waterways!

This is the 3rd group of friends I have brought to Ft. Lauderdale from Indialantic, Florida. It is the highlight of the stay each time! Beautiful! I have recommended it to many others in my area. You have a problem with the pricing on Zerve being "in-sync" with the web site. I pulled up the time/date and the 10:30 cruise was listed as $14.00. The Zerve prices were higher, with the senior citizen prices higher by $2.00 than the adult prices. I started to sign up for the adult, but in all honesty we are seniors and I was sure there was an error. I explained this when we arrived, as I was charged on-line $2.00 more (actually 3 x $18.00). We were given free drink tickets. While this was minor, it was an irritation that should be addressed in the interest of good customer relations. Very nice crew! Beautiful scenery! We even got a good restaurant recommendation. THANK YOU! Katherine Butts

We enjoyed our tour. The weather was gloomy when we left and so we were at a loss as to activities. When we returned it was sunny and warm, and the pier had opened for business. The anouncer was knowledgeable, told corny jokes, and made the tour more pleasant.

The crew was very nice and helpful and the captain was humorous too. My 10:30 cruise ticket of $13 was priced right. Enjoyed it very much, will bring out of town guests for this!

We were a group of four who sat outside upstairs on the boat. Everything was very enjoyable. The narrative was clear. The sailing was smooth. And the drinks delicious. The views of the multimillion dollar mansions were picture perfect.

We really enjoyed this tour--just enough description of the homes to make it interesting, but not too much to make it annoying.

Well worth it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! We saw a side of Ft Lauderdale that you can only see from the water. Our tour guide was humorous and informative. I'll definitely bring others on the tour when we are in Ft. Lauderdale.

Fun time on the Tour

We arrived early to ensure our reservation and to explore the Riverfront shops and restaurants. It is a nice location with a few nice shops with unique items, particularly the art gallery. As we boarded the boat, a photo was taken of us, and we went upstairs to find a seat. The top is the best for viewing, though there is a place indoors with A/C if it is too hot. Both locations have plenty of seating, the only drawback is the lack of seating in the sun. If you want to catch some rays, on the top deck, you'll have to sit in the back on a bench and seating is very limited. The tour itself was very nice and relaxing and we saw amazing homes and yachts. The tour guide explained the famous people who lived in some of the homes (many associated w/the Miami Dolphins) but at times was hard to hear in you were in the back. The tour takes an hour and a half and is a nice way to spend an afternoon. They do sell drinks on board (a bit pricey - $8 for two beers), but it's very festive, so why not?! It is a nice way to spend the day, after the tour go a block up and shop on Las Olas Blvd - very nice galleries, boutiques and fab food!

My family and I greatly enjoyed the Riverfront's Venice of America Tour in Fort Lauderdale. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the dozens of mansions and yachts that we saw. It was a excellent way to spend 90 minutes while my other son and his girlfriend were at a musical. I would definitely take the trip again and recommend this activity to anyone who's interested in seeing how the rich spend their millions.

the boat was clean, the carpeting new, the crew was pleasant, the brief description of whose house we were passing was ok, the length of the trip was perfect. thanks
