    Missed the boat!
    Richard_P, Apr 2024
    We missed the boat because of the worst directions/instructions I've ever seen...we got there 45 minutes early and never did find where we had to go... disappointed mywife and daughter
    Lack of Follow-Up
    Mario_C, Apr 2024
    When I bookes this boat tour…I never got the name of the boat company….Once at the peur and asking around a COMPETITOR was nice enough to send me to the RIGHT tour boats…When I checked in the man did not have our reservation on line…after 10 Minutes of searching and looking…He saw my family name written on a WHITEBOARD behind him…I never could get a VOUCHER from VIATOR on line…🙄
    Great tour but check-in process was not clear.
    Kristin_N, Mar 2024
    Tour was great! It was difficult to find the kiosk to check in at as we were not given the name of the company. I was looking for Viator but the kiosk check in was through a company called Bayside.
    Great Tour
    Michael_H, Mar 2024
    Excellent boat tour. We are recommending to our friends and family. The company gave a great overview of the celebrity homes
    Priscilla_S, Mar 2024
    The tour was excellent the sights was nice and pleasant. My husband and I had a great time and will come back again.
    Worth it for the time and money
    Susanne_L, Mar 2024
    Super fun lively tour guide. Enjoyed seeing the bay and hearing about the people who live there. Only difficulty was finding where to check in.
    Hard to find ticket office
    Linn_R, Mar 2024
    Easy to book. Location of ticket office was hard to find given the address that is shared by so many. Otherwise cruise was fine.
    Bayride tour
    Wilma_E, Mar 2024
    Gabriel the guide was so funny👍 we had fun and the weather was beautiful. This tour is highly recommended when you are in Miami
    Should be more detailed
    Natasha_B, Mar 2024
    The boat ride was great. The weather was beautiful. But the commentary was very limited, and very sparse. Only pointed out some of the celebrity homes, but not too much about Miami and the architecture and the culture of the place we were sailing past. Very limited commentary, which was very disappointing.
    WOW!! What a cruise!!
    Myna_S, Mar 2024
    Such a fun experience! Got to see so many homes and yachts and learn about the owners and the area. Teenagers and adults enjoyed every minute!
    Overall good
    Nazia_R, Mar 2024
    More organized. We’re in middle chairs on 2nd deck. People were standing towards the side while seeing celebrity homes. It was not possible to check out from middle chairs. People should remain on their own spots.
    Worth doing
    Maureen_W, Mar 2024
    The celebrity homes were okay but we enjoyed the boat ride and got some good pictures of Miami. We stayed downstairs in the boat and were able to take great photos through the glass. There is a great outdoor mall to eat at there when you are through.
    Good time and Lots of Laughs
    Keona_W, Feb 2024
    This was a great start to the Bachelorette weekend. Enjoyed the host; quite the comedian! Great tour.
    Monique_W, Feb 2024
    It was kind of boring LOL! I had a similar ride on ten past that allowed us to get off the boat and do water sports like trampolines in the middle of the ocean. This was more or less like riding a ferry. Would not recommend
    Nice experience
    Desiree_G, Feb 2024
    Seeing the celebrity homes and the tour guide was funny drinks were good too We definitely enjoyed our time
    timothy_H, Feb 2024
    Nothing. The person talking about the trip making too many jokes that were not funny at all. And he spoke to close into the mike and was very difficult to understand. Would not recommend this to anyone.
    Alba_A, Feb 2024
    I loved both the narrators in English, Spanish and French on the boat. They made the experience really memorable!! Tipping them was truly worthwhile, as they made such a wonderful job throughout the ride. This trip is truly worth it. Another way to look at the city of Miami. I loved the view, the length of the trip, the millionaire's row of houses, the city skyline, the beautiful weather, the sea smell. I truly recommend it!!
    Reeeeeeally windy but totally worth it
    Adrin_C, Feb 2024
    The ride was amazing and incredibly fun, I would strongly recommend and note it in the tour information to take a jacket/blanket/something to cover from the cold breeze during the entire trip. There are parts where the sun doesn’t hit the boat and it can get pretty chilly. Aside from that, the tour is really fun and totally worth it.
    Made my trip to Miami
