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!!!!!

This is really a tour of luxury homes along the Gold Coast. If you're looking for a wide range of sites in the area, you should choose a different tour. My children (both teenagers) and I loved the tour. The houses were beautiful, interesting and sometimes outrageous. The captain did a good job explaining what we were seeing without talking too much or being hokey. Even though the day was hot, on the boat it felt comfortably cool because of the shade cover and cool breezes from the Atlantic. Well worth the price!

A good tour to see lots of the million dollar homes. However, I checked some of the information that was given out and it was somewhat exaggerated. Enjoyed being able to get free sodas while on board. Worth the money.

We boarded the boat on time, sat for nearly 25 minutes before there was an announcement that something was wrong with the boat. They did not have the part to fix it and they cancelled the cruise. They said we could wait for the next cruise in two hours, but could NOT guarantee the boat would be repaired! This was on the 4th of July and we had driven a signifcant distance for this trip. 1/2 day of our vacation was wasted.

When we bought the tickets, the girl at the booth by the catamaran said that soft drinks were free and that we also got a coupon for a free drink. When we showed our coupons on the boat to get our drinks, the guy working there said that they were only valid for soft drinks. We told him that that was not what we were told. Soft drinks were free, so why would we need a coupon for that? He insisted and was not nice at all. We then told another guy on the boat and he said he would make an exception and give us our drinks. What a scam to give out coupons for free drinks and then claim that they are just valid for soft drinks that are free!! Stay away from this company!

Best way to see Ft Lauderdale!

We learned so much about the city from the very knowledgable tour guide. It is also a fun way to see the beautiful houses and learn who lives in some of them. It was the highlight of our week.
