Great sight seeing

Great tour and tour guide. Learned a lot about Tampa. beautiful night on the water and had a super experience !!
Celebrity Homes Tour in Tampa.....or is it it....not really.
, Dec 2021
I will be very specific here. The tour operator Larry was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, very patient with people and would point out just about anything worthwhile pointing out in Tampa. Saw a lot and learned a lot. The tour was slow and easy and never felt rushed. He would also slow down and point out photo ops. However, he should re-title the name of the tour. This was NOT a Celebrity Home Tour. This was a History of Tampa, Downtown, Shipping history, ship building, bridges dolphin sighting Tour. Oh, we happen to see the nice homes along the river, and he pointed out 5 of them. The 2 owned by the Glaser brothers, the owners of the Tampa Bay Bucs, the house that Derek Jeter used to live in and rented it to Tom Brady, and a cable sales guru who no one has heard of. There was another house that was in a John Travolta movie. As well as another football player that was an obscure player. So, 5 houses would not constitute a Celebrity Homes Tour. For that fact we were really disappointed. However, again, we were pleased with everything else. But as the expression goes, call a spade a spade. Don't call it what it's not.

I thank you for your honest comments. Tampa does not have movie stars mostly sports related people. Some of the people that lived on the water moved away. Ie. Writer michel Connley. NY Yankees Tino Rodrigues and we do leave out hockey players homes if after asking that guests have no interest in . since the pandemic we combined the harbor tour with the homes to give guests a full value for there time.
Great tour!

I already went on history tour which is this tour too. You combined the tours, buy advertised it as two separate trips. I was refunded for the second trip but you need to advertise that the trip is the history tour and homes of celebrities.

Not Satisfied

The tour mainly Focused on the history of Tampa. We only saw a hand full of celebrity houses which was the reason why I booked it. Waste of money.

We took you to 11 homes of celebrity / famous people ( that is all that live on the water of Tampa). Derek Jeeter, Tom Brady just a few.
Good views terrible “historian boat driver”

I’m from Spain here with my family on vacation and I understand English 100%. Every time the boat operator spoke about Spain he was negative and offensive. Many Indians died 400-500 years ago (mainly due to European diseases) not just to the Spaniards but also to the English , the French, the Portuguese and I’m sure the Americans have killed a couple of Indians as well. The Spaniards themselves denounced cruelties to the Indians to the authorities back in Spain on books by Bartolomé de Las Casas as early as the 15th century (we don’t hide the things we do wrong). It’s disgusting how this little man only talked negatively about: “Spain did this horrible thing, and Spain did that”. Perhaps you can leave out the negative anti-Spain propaganda for the next trip.

You are c correct about others being cruel lest to the natives. But the beging of disease was the major factor in the extinction of tribes in Tampa as the Europeans did the same around the world to native populations
Bad experience
, May 2021
We arrived at the port, for your first time being down there it was a little confusing. We were at the docks by the Convention Center. We asked several people where was Dock 3, they were unfamiliar, we started trying to email the tour operator which is what the site told us to do. Anyway, we saw the boat leave. After an attempt to reschedule for another day, to no avail. I will not schedule again with this service. There’s other nearby boats you can charter. By the way, the operator shouldn’t answer the phone if she can’t comprehend. I had to repeat the story several times for her to come back to say, we just took your money and can’t accommodate another time! So, $130 lesson learned!

Stacy you booked through a on line company , They provided you in your conformation GPS, Maps and address of our departure location and our direct phone # to assist you. You never called us till after departure time. WE DID OFFER YOU TO JOIN US ANOTHER TIME but the time we had openings you did not accept. .

Captain Larry kept the tour interesting and moving. It was easy to ask question and receive a knowledgeable answer about Tampa.
