No adequate directions and so-so amenities

The tour of the Miami mansions was beautiful and guide was somewhat informative, however there were no specific directions given to get to the marina. I used my navigator but it failed to find it, and when I called their main # plus an 800 # to get directions, one was voice mail and the other, the person on the phone was not helpful. I asked a dozen local people for directions, and finally made it after 2 hours of driving when the trip should have been a half an hour at most. When I validated my ticket, I explained to the woman in the booth that I had gotten lost. She apologized but didn't seem phased. The staff on the cruise were cordial but didn't go out of their way to be friendly. The guide gave some interesting information about the owners of the homes, however could have done better in giving more detail. The boat itself was comfortable and the ride was pleasant with beautiful views, however they only served snacks and hotdogs. I wouldn't have minded paying a little more and getting better food choices.

A little something for everyone

We came as a mixed group. Myself, my husband, and my daughter (1yr.) were looking for a way for my parents (tourists from Louisiana) to get out on the water. We invited my friend who brought her daughter (7 y.o. ) as well. The tour is an hour and a half on the dot. Any longer would have become boring for us locals and the kids would have begun to lose interest. The narrationtion is pretty basic.... Famous/Rich persons house on the left... Famous/ rich person yacht on the right etc. But, view from second level is great... Staff friendly... Snacks and full bar... Air conditioned lower cabin... Clean bathroom... And a great souvenir picture complete in a frame for 10 bucks. Unlike the water taxi... You don't have to wait for people to get on and off every 20 minutes... Which is great if you don't have any plans to explore Ft. lauderdale on foot. Overall... Pretty good bang for the buck.

I booked a tour for Sat Sep 19th eve at 5pm, I already booked tickets online i was there with my family at 4:40 there counter was closed nobody was piking up call and there were more families with us waiting there for the cruise. Finally when somebody on some contact number provided in there email received call i came to know that cruise already sailed at 4:30 pm!! The whole evening was spoiled and we just returned home. And they charged my credit card also. WORST service ever experienced. I would never recommend them to anybody.

We would have liked to see Port Everglades with the cruise ships; this tour basically shows beautiful mansions
