Good tour for the price

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.

Disappointing Tour
Wed, Mar 19, 14   5:00 PM amytriplett Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The tour and crew were fine. It was the tour guide that made the tour terrible

He was rude to us when we were getting on the boat.

His presentation during the tour was boring and didn't

Feel he was very informed. Because we were traveling with kids

We had done the Duck Tour several days before and would highly recommend them

Over this tour. I felt it was a waste of time. The announcer needs to get a new job.

It was obvious he didn't like what he was doing.

View of how the 1% lives

We enjoyed the tour of the harbour and parts of the intercoastal. We thought we would see more homes on the waterway and less of the shipping area. The homes and boats (yachts) were incredible. The captain was very knowledgeable about local famous residents and their lifestyle, but was a bit jaded. Definitely recommend to see the decadence of some.
