The cruise was relaxing and enjoyable. The host was entertaining and had great knowledge of the area. Ensure that you check in at the kiosk before you line up for the cruise because they only accept the paper ticket when boarding, not your electronic ticket.

It was a good experience overall. However, even though it says on the ticket to come 30 minutes earlier, we only got tickets on the time of our tour and the boat departed 30 minutes later. So be mindful of that planning your trip. Also the company on the ticket was different. Look for Bayride Tours booth to get your ticket. Needless to say, it sound like an unnecessary step if you got your e-ticket, but it is what it is. The boat went around the famous people houses and the guide briefly mentioned whos house was that with a pinch of jokes. For the price the tour was pretty decent, but nothing too deep about history or architecture of Miami.

I was in Miami and I wanted to do something different! this was a great experience, especially because they give you the option to drop you off at Miami beach and ride back with them later that day. I would've wished they would explain a little better on the app how the whole plan is, it seemed a little confusing but overall it was great, I highly recommend it.
