Great day! Lots of fun! Segway is easy but there is instruction given. Tour guide was great! He took lots of pictures of us and shared through airdrop. Bluetooth on lanyard is provided so you can hear your guide. He had a beautiful day. Nice weather. We had an early tour on a Saturday morning.

Such a fun way of seeing the Miami coast! Despite the boat going fast, it wasn’t choppy. It was a smooth drive with loud music, great views and wind in our hair. We loved it and grabbed some really great videos/pictures!

It was a wonderful experience! Easy to find the boat and get checked in. The boat was great and we loved seeing the celebrity homes on the islands and the skyline. Definitely recommend for anyone visiting Miami!

Fun trip with a friendly crew. Get there early for the best seating

Great tour guide, great sunset and overall experience
