We very much enjoyed the riverfront cruise, it was a very relaxing and leisurely boat trip, the captain gave a running commentary on the sites and houses as we gently passed by.

Very relaxing. Bartender was very friendly and nice. Tour itself could have been more informative. The guide didn't have a lot of info, kept repeating same info on builders of homes instead of homes themselves Think guide on water taxi was more informative.

We live in South Florida while had never taken this particular water tour in Fort Lauderdale. It was very enjoyable, the captain and staff were very professional and informative. Saw so much that you never are able to view from land. Highly recommended.
