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.

It was a really nice evening trip to see the Christmas lites. The only draw back was a loud group that was on board who talked so loud you couldnt hear the Capt.

Great trip, but............

Had we known the water taxi was showing the same areas, houses, stories etc. we would not have spent the money on the Venice tour. However, the boat was great and comfortable b/c it was such a windy day.

When we purchased the trip, it was advertising a free drink. However, they told us that they quit offering that several weeks ago.

Very nice sunset tour of the local water ways

Perfectly paced calm tour of the local waterways and beautiful homes. Colorful tour guide with interesting points of interest and stories to go with them. Missed the complimentary drinks and libations included in July tour. Sunset was gorgeous from the boat.
