Very good guided tour. The weather didn't cooperate raining hard all day, but they made us feel comfortable and as dry as we could be. The alligator show was marginal, but OK...

While we would have enjoyed the tour on the boat pictured here and were actually expecting that, we were on more of a yacht and we enjoyed that just as much. This cruise was 3hours and we enjoyed the relaxing and informative trip immensely. While much of the info was about the famous people who own the multi-million dollar homes along the New River, it is such a joy to ride along this beautiful waterway and see these homesteads, pools and yachts as well as the city of Ft Lauderdale in a calm and relaxed setting. WELL WORTH the 25 or so per person for the 3hour tour...and we were not even aware we stopped at the island for a brief spell. There we enjoyed an aligator show and a burger. Lovely way to see the city, especially for those not familiar with its' charm.
