Overall nice cruise, wish more history was reviewed vs just pointing out celebrity homes and yachts. Kids (and adults partly) became disinterested, especially on the cruise back to the dock when the captain turned on the radio.

My husband and I have been to Fort Lauderdale many times and we wanted to do something different. We searched the internet for things to do. When we came across this excursion and read the reviews we gave it a try. We had such a great time. The staff was great, the drinks we reasonably priced. The beautiful views of homes and yachts were breath taking. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone looking for something to do.. The tour is 1.5 hours approx. and fly's by.. I would also highly recommend lunch at Briny's after.. Great finish to a great time.

We enjoyed this event on an afternoon after a cruise to Panama. It was a pleasant way to end a trip before staying the night snd returning home the next day.

Enjoyed the narration, the long ride, and the setting. Staff was very helpful when we were running late, and gave great, patient directions. It's a very good tour for the price.

Didnt get what we paid for

Went on April 1, 2014. 3:00 boat Tour. Ft Lauderdale. 1-Very old bathrooms 2-Captain had so much to tell about the tour of homes yet his tone was always cynical. Cutting down the people who lived in the homes. 3-music playing was old 70's rock 4-boat broke down 1/2 way through the tour. We waited with free drinks. But since I already biught and paid for all of drinks it really did not matter to me because I didnt need any more drinks. 5- mechanic came and fixed boat took about 40 minutes in all 6- upon return the rushed us off so the 5:00 tour would not be late 7- should have refunded our money or another tour 8- captain never came out to talk to passengers 9- they advertise this to be in a shopping mall area but the store fronts are 80% empty 10- wish i went on a water taxi or catamaran ride instead.

Good overview of waterfront Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Ticket checkin person not the most welcoming!!! Service of vessel should have been done BEFORE time to board. We shouldn't have to wait around for an oil change - surely this is a routine service for the craft. Other than that, a pleasant way to show visitors the waterfront area for an hour and a half.

A very nice tour.

The tour was nice and informative, but we didn't appreciate the 'mandatory' photo at the beginning of the cruise. We tried to decline politely, but were told that they 'HAD' to take our picture. The photographer then remarked that he wouldn't bother to try to take a good one and then we wouldn't want to see it. The time it took to take the pictures also kept us out in the hot sun.
