We were very disappointed with the coordination of the Everglades activities and the visit to the stars' house. We had to look for where to register and the time was not the right one. In the morning we were told to arrive for 8:30 am whereas the organizers arrived at 10 am and the bus arrived at 10:30 am.

Good tour. In both languages, they explain everything very well. It becomes very interesting. The 7 pm shift is very good. Because there is no longer that intense sun. The only thing not very clear is where to pick up the physical tickets, which is finally at the end of the pier to the left of the boat.

We booked this tour mainly to get a different view of Miami and not to have to visit the city on foot in the unbearable heat. We not only had a unique view of the city from the boat, but were also able to really enjoy the cool breeze of the headwind. Cold drinks can also be purchased on board. The ride through the celebrity area was well designed, lots but not too much information, well placed and backed with appropriate music. More exciting than I had imagined. The tour lasted a full 90 minutes and was worth every penny. would i do it again
