Wonderful, except for...

Because we were driving for over an hour and a half each way to go on the tour I called the day before to make sure the boat would be going out at 11:00 AM. I was told the 11:00 tour ALWAYS GOES OUT, most passengers would be walk-ins. When we arrived we were told there were not enough people for 11:00 but the boat would be going out at 1:00. The gentleman at the booth gave us additional time on our parking pass. We walked around the area and came back for 1:00. The tour was wonderful, the scenery beautiful. I wish it had been a little longer, even if the fee was higher (perhaps 25 - 30 dollars per person). We were each given a free drink for coming back, that was a nice touch. I recommended it to my dental hygenist today but warned her it may not go out at the time she planned on.

Throughly enjoyed the River Cruise, especially seeing how the very wealthy live. Beautiful boat, staff very attentive, loved our photograph taken on the gang plank. Enjoyed the often tongue in cheek commentary, and the Irish Pub next to where you disembark.

This was a chance to see the beautiful homes along the New River that you would not be able to see otherwise. The Captain had lots of information that we enjoyed hearing.

I highly recommend this cruise. Our group of friends got together to celebrate a birthday. We had a wonderful time. The tour is pleasant and the mansions on "millionaire's row" are unbelievable. The boat was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bartender even made a special "birthday" punch for my friend. The captain gave an interesting and funny tour. This is a very enjoyable way to entertain friends or just to see the sights. We will be back!

Had a super trip on Riverfront Cruise and really did see the Venice of America. What beautiful sights. The staff were so friendly and exceptionally helpful. The commentary was very informative and it was great to hear the celebrity history of Fort Lauderdale. When we got too hot, we were delighted with the ice cold air conditioned bar and the array of tropical drinks. Can't wait to do it all again. Highly recommend this trip.

The time and the tour is fine. You have to buy another boat, we had to smell the gasoline all the time, that's is disgusting.

Very unconfortable trip, no air conditioning, the bar was a disaster, the captain was extremely rude, at the end of the cruise our group ask him to take us some pictures and he refused asking us to get out of the boat, just becuase he was in a hurry to go smoke, incredible!!!!!
