My husband and I enjoyed all the information that was given. He grew up and Florida and didn't know half of the information we received. It was also very relaxing after a stressful week.

The soda was not very good though.

Pretty Good Tour

I would recommend the tour especially for someone not familiar with the area. The crew/staff were pleasant. Personally I am not into the emphasis on the rich and famous and would prefer more of a history of the area, not who owns what house or yacht and what they paid for it. Otherwise enjoyable.

Being on the water was fun!

The cruise was absolutely beautiful. The boat had great views from every area . You could sit topside in the sunny breeze or downstairs in the airconditioned lounge. The crew was friendly and professional. The announcer/captain was funny and informative. Overall a great experience for the whole family. Great bartender and great drinks, especially the free one they give you with ticket purchase. The ticket booth was a little hard to find and parking is expensive but you get your money's worth. A definite activity for your next vacation.

The whole tour was a wonderful experience. The captain and staff were very good at what they do. The free drinks were a nice touch!! We especially liked that narrative from the captain. I also liked the fact that this particular tour wasn't crowded. Made it much easier to hear and also get acquainted with other passengers.

The wonders of Ft Lauderdale

A long time ago I had a business in the Ft. Lauderdale area and was therefore, familiar with these type activities, so I recommended a group of friends to do this on a Saturday, and one from Panama, another from Chile, an Italian, a Cuban and two USA friends went on this tour.

The cruise was fun, the weather great, the environment excellent, no mike for the tour guide made him strain his voice, but the jokes were great and we had a blast. The photo was not expected and while I bought it, I was disappointed to see that in an effort to have photos not replicated, the scanning to place it in my digital album did not work, so that is the last time I purchase a photo this way, let's face it, I had my digital camera with me and had great photos to begin with.

The area has changed though, most businesses have closed and we had to walk towards Las Olas for dinner, so let's hope the economy improves and that they do something about the area, for it felt strange to see what was once a rather lively place, empty and quiet.
