Good tour - Rebook Ripoff
Bud_R, Mar 2024
The tour itself was good but finding our boat took too and we missed it. Went to the check in and guess what? It cost us $15 EACH to rebook on the next tour. What a Ripoff! Not good for the Viator brand.
It was interesting
Karen_W, Mar 2024
I really don't want to leave a review that you're forcing me to too late. So the boat was ragging and I did not enjoy the fact that I didn't understand nothing that the driver was saying
Awesome experience for the price
Michael_T, Mar 2024
The boat ride was entertaining! Enjoyed the clever jokes from guide, Gabriel, as well as the playlist set. Thank you!
Sierra_A, Mar 2024
It was just beautiful to be out on the ocean and we even got to see a dolphin! Seeing the miami from the ocean was incredible!
Return trip in the works.
Brian_S, Feb 2024
The tour package was enjoyable. I got to see different parts of Miami I never knew about. I didn’t even get a chance to finish my own itinerary so I’ll have to book another trip.
The experience was great!...

Beautiful cruise and a beautiful cruise. Sorry to say some had to stand the 90 minutes on the second deck.
Thorough review and staff highlight- Ricky
Keira_M, Feb 2024
Needs better organization. Was very difficult to find the boat as well as the checkin spot Time duration for the trip was a lie. Advertised as 90 min and was almost 45 min Venture was advertised as 15 ppl and it ended up being like 75 Experience should advertise that it is advised to have. Jacket esp if a night drive. It was soooooooo cold Positive Ricky did an amazing job. Entertaining, engaging, flexible. He balanced his ability to be personable, control the mass and still provide information. His ability to communicate I. Both languages so seamlessly and quick was great. No one went without. I request you give this man a raise as he is doing the role of two people. And maybe next time it will be one his mansions that he will highlight lol or someone else will the next go around lol
Take the cruise!
Raisa_M, Feb 2024
My friend and I took the 6pm cruise and got to see a beautiful sunset and night lights during our cruise. The tour guide was very informative and conducted the tour in both english and spanish with lots of subtle funny comments as well. Highly recommend this tour!

Brooke_F, Feb 2024
Awesome tour, and get tour guide! Had so much fun. Just wish I could figure out how to receive the picture what was taken of my group before boarding the boat.
Good tour
Brent_H, Feb 2024
Good tour guide. The views of the houses were very good. Also, there were some very interesting facts about the houses and the people that owned them.
Wrong timetable
Ximena_S, Feb 2024
The agency sent a wrong timetable for the bus rides, they said we could take the tour starting at 2PM from Bayside, but the bus driver let us know they were actually leaving at 1:30 but not for a tour, just back to Miami Beach where they were starting a new tour at 3:30PM. That didn't suit my travel plans and I was not able to take the tour. I want my money back.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
there are several companies and it sounds like you may have approached a wrong company
Buyer Beware
Frances_A, Feb 2024
This was the worst experience we have ever had. Conflicting emails regarding pick up times and locations. I emailed the tour director several times requesting clarification. No response. I was advised to contact the Everglades tour for details. They did not have us registered. Spent all morning waiting for bus and attempting to reach the office Alex from the boat tours helped us to finally reach someone. Ran out of time for all tours. So badly managed!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
You were scheduled for a hotel pick up and you were not there. I understand that you changed your mind and went to the main office. We dispatch and when you do not follow the pick up it can cause an issue since the bus has limited seats and we dispatch
Great valentines day date!
John_B, Feb 2024
Great time, drinks were amazing and fairly priced, tour guide was great and the boat had plenty space. Did this on valentines day and it went perfect. They usually have a cameraman that takes a nice picture w the option to purchase it - and we did!
Excellent Tour - Great price
Trishia_E, Feb 2024
the trip, the tour guides, and remaining crew were excellent! next time I am back in Miami, I will take it again!
Relaxing Bost Cruise
Robin_C, Feb 2024
The weather was beautiful with blue skies, and that made all the difference to enjoy the scenic cruise. Valerie was a terrific tour guide, describing all of the famous homes that were selected to share on the water. I like the option of having a drink while enjoying the beautiful views.

We had a amazing time and the tour guide was very friendly and helpful.We loved the view the temperature was kind of chilly I love Miami
Christina_S, Feb 2024
There weren't any memorable moments other than 90 minutes of my life I can not get back. The photos of the boat that are advertised are no where near the boat we were on. We ended up on a party barge with 200 people with little to no seating for 90 minutes. I thought I was getting a boat tour with less than 20 people on board. But instead It's an old boat with a bad speaker system and not enough seats for all the tickets they sell. Shame on you.

Yibin_Z, Feb 2024
A few points to note: 1. In February, if you buy a ticket that departs at 17:30, you can see the sunset when you leave the port and the Miami skyline when you return to the port, which is perfect. 2. If you don’t want to move, it’s best to line up at the boat more than 45 minutes in advance. Not for check-in, but to get a better window seat on the second floor. Of course, the best way to take pictures is keeping walk on the second floor in order to find the angle. Several shortcomings: 1. You can’t expect to take particularly outstanding portrait photos. Because the lights on the boat are dim, the night scene is too bright, and there are so many people that there is no room for taking pictures. 2. The ship in the first picture when booking oline did not have a roof on the second floor. But the actual ship has a shed roof on the second floor.
