We added this cruise to a hop-on hop-off bus ticket as a way to get a different view of the city. The ride was nice, the views were beautiful and we learned a little about the history and residents of the Miami area. Just beware of the raffle - you win by losing!

We went on board at 16:00h so we had a great view on the city lights on our way back. On the way up we saw 2 dolphins in front of a mega yacht. Guide was ok, you can have drinks on board. We saw some great villa's during the tour.

We were going to go on a Miami City tour boat cruise. There was nothing posted to indicate that Island Queen ran this cruise but we found it anyhow. The first annoying thing was being instructed on our way to get on the boat to stop to have a posed photo. Shortly after the boat departed 2 "Reps" from carnival... More

The boat tour was ok. It was a nice ride through the beautiful area with plenty of great scenery. I was not a fan of the "special surprise" drawing which was some kind of Carnival gimmick. Also, the guide referred to everyone as "the very famous" whomever...it got a bit stale.

We took this cruise on Jan 22, with one day to enjoy Miami after a Caribbean cruise. While the cruise was fine, the time share sales pitch disguised as a draw for a prize by Carnival representatives was a total turn off. Island Queen Cruises should rethink their policy of allowing these kind of sales tactics on a paid excursion.... More

We took the Millionaire's Row Cruise and loved it we got to see some great properties and some great yachts. The tour guide was perfect for the job friendly and knowledgeable my only two problems was he would say something in English and after that two or three more languages they should do some cruises with one language and they...

On a 67 degree cold day (Florida standards) we took a 90 min tour of million dollar row. The staff was helpful and very informative, the down side was the sale of time shares. Not kool so my rating goes down

What an beautiful place. Entering the boat, the staff was very friendly. We did the 5:30PM cruise, it was good because the sun was down, we got back from the tour around 7PM. IT WAS WORTH IT!!! seeing all the beautiful houses plus the tour guide was so detailed explaining everything. He was also funny. The tour was also relaxing.... More
