My 76 year old mother and myself took this tour. It was very nice and uncrowded. This was the first week of December, so the tourist season was not at peak. We got to the riverfront early and parked in the garage thinking we could grab a bite to eat and do a little shopping before the boat tour started. Unfortunately, there were only two places to eat and the shops were either not open or closed down. The boat tour itself was nice and enjoyable and the staff was good. I'd recommend the tour, but don't get to the riverfront too early, you will be waisting your time.

A group of us went on the cruise to show some out of town friends. It was very nice and I would recommend it.

It was a great way to see not only the homes, but the yachts on the water. Even though the speaker kept breaking up, we had a great time.

Our commentator had a sense of humor and added interesting points about the upcoming boat show and various homes that we passed. It was a relaxing ride. Now I would love to have a private tour of some of the gorgeous mansions. What a lifestyle!!

We chose this harbor tour over the others available based on time constraints for our first day. I would say that the Captain seemed a bit unenthusiastic and somewhat fake in a way that implied he was just going through the motions to make the day end. He rushed the tour (scant 1.25 hour) and then asked us to leave the boat quicker cause he wasn't making any money by having folks stand around and he and his crew could be on their way home already or "so he could get home to his wife" (actual quote).

We had the opportunity to take another boat ride the next day and it was fabulous. Their Captain had witty and relevant insights on the weather, the Everglades, the beach conditions, the other boaters, etc, as well as the same fabulous homes and yachts we saw the day before--he made it seem like he was giving the tour to his own friends! Unfortunately the Riverfront Cruise paled by comparison and I would save your money for the other guys.
