Took visiting out-of-country and out-of-state family on the tour. I'm local, but hadn't been either. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Fascinating to see how the "other half" lives!

Although the information was not all that exciting, the ride was very relaxing down the water ways! The weather was beautiful and it made for an enjoyable 1.5 hours!

Captain is very entertaining. Boat is comfortable.

I really enjoyed the captain's stories of who owns what mansion/yacht and how much it cost. I wasn't expecting to learn as much as I did. He may have missed his calling as a stand up comic.

The 1.5 hr length of cruise is perfect to get a feel for the waterway and went by fast. My young son was able to move around the boat, eat a snack at a table and use the washroom, which was convenient as those travelling with kids know. All of the crew was nice and helpful.

I didn't know this existed until this tour. It was quite an eye-opener as to how the other half (10%) lives.

It was a great way to show friends from out of town the 'richer' side of Ft. Lauderdale...cruise was 1-1/2 hrs (which went fast).....-- the tour guide was very informative -- would definitely do it again...

The highlight of our vacation

The best value for money Fort Lauderdale had to offer. Super tour of Fort Lauderdale's waterway. The staff were very helpful and very friendly. The captain entertained us with all the celebrity details of the city.

While we lunched on hot dogs and ice cream, we watched the multi million dollar mansions and yachts. We also enjoyed the drinks and were delighted to buy a photo so that we can remember the super day. Can't wait to return and do it again.

Very informative and interesting. I've lived here for 25 years and I still can appreciate that area of Ft. Laud. Our friends are snowbirds and throughly enjoyed the cruise. They also learned alot about this area. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Good to take out of town relatives

I live in Fort Lauderdale, but try and take visiting relatives on a boat tour whenever they first come visit. While the trip is a bit pricy, the snacks are WAY expensive, and the captain is about as cheesy as you can get, it's still a great time. The homes and waterways are beautiful, and if you get a moderately sunny day with a good breeze, you're golden. Everyone had a good time, and it let them see the city from a different angle. It's not an every day activity, but for special occasions and out of town visitors, I recommend the Venice of America Tour.

Speaker on tour boat was knowledgable about the area. He seemed to dislike how the boats (yachts) are bought out of state and PAY NO SALES TAX!!! We were reminded of that over and over again during the tour.
