The whole experience is memorable 😎 the weather was great saw dolphin the beautiful view of the homes and business was great
The boat tour was a lot...
, May 2022
The boat tour was a lot of fun and learned a lot! Like others said in the review it was more history than celebrity homes as advertised but still all around a nice time.
Not a celebrity homes boat tour
, May 2022
The tour only showed 3-4 celebrity homes in the 1.5 hours, it's called "Tampa Celebrity Homes Boat Tour". The tour gave information about the history and buildings in Tampa, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and if I went on a tour for that I would have given 5 stars.
Great time
, Apr 2022
The tour guide was super energetic and friendly. I would recommend it. Derek Jeters old house he sold was amazing
Awful tour company. Do not book!
, Apr 2022
Do not book the Celebrity Boat Tour! It is awful. All the people who run it care about is your money. Completely unprofessional, rude. A total waste. Do not waste your money on this tour company like we did.

I guess you were not on the tour. If you were you should have called our office and we would have made adjustments. We have been making guests happy for over 18 years. And we only have professional staff with over 20 years as guides.
Not what I paid for
, Apr 2022
I paid for a celebrity house tour and we were only shown a few homes. It was a Tampa history tour instead and if I would’ve known, I would’ve selected the dolphin tour.

We took you to the homes of three New York Yankees Tom Brady's house the owner of two major teams as well as the locations of movie shot here in Tampa if you would have called our office we would have made adjustments for you
False advertisement
, Apr 2022
Her tour guide was very hospitable and polite he did a great job however I booked a celebrity boat tour and it was more of a historic Tampa tour we only seen one celebrity house so I kind of feel like it was false advertisement

The celebrity homes tour. Some of the homes we see is Deric Jetters, Tom Brady, Vinny LaCaviea, owners of the buccaneers, Tino Martinez, Brad Culpeper, owners of Manchester united and others. Nice group of famous folk.
90 mins of Tamp history
, Apr 2022
Mark was an awesome guide on this experience. We learned so much about the history of Tampa, all the way up to modern times. The homes you see are nice, but the real gem is seeing the city from the water.
Cruise was canceled
, Mar 2022
When we got to the dock they told us the cruse had been canceled. That we had to contact Viator for a full refund.
Highly recommend!
, Mar 2022
Great tour. The guide was excellent. I completely recommend it. The only complaint is that there were only a few celebrity homes that were toured. It was mainly a history of Tampa tour.
Used this company twice....
, Mar 2022
Used this company twice. The first tour we did was the history tour and our guide was amazing. The next tour we did was the “celebrity house tour” and we were told after we were on, that there is only a couple celebrities and we spent about 5 minutes on it. First off, he showed up 10 minutes late and took us back 10 minutes early. The website has each tour as it’s own hour and a half tour, but they combined all of them into 1 and wasted our time. The guide was also constantly on his cell phone and not talking. When he did talk, he was giving information about his life and not relevant to the city of Tampa.

We show you the homes of the owners of the Buccaneers, Manchester United , Alex Rogitz, Derek Jetter, Tom Brady, Tino Martinez, Vinny Le Caviae and other. There are no movie stars here. We also showed you the sites of the movie "the Punisher. If you felt you did not get a good value please call our office and we will address it for you. And yes during transit time (between points of interest) we do answer the phone or chat with each other as people.

History tour not celebrity homes tour
, Mar 2022
A lot of history but not enough celebrity homes to call it a celebrity homes boat tour. Guide was nice friendly but disappointed not enough celebrity homes
An evening out with Family
, Feb 2022
The weather was great and the tour was really nice.. Captain Larry did a really great job giving us history of what we seen. I was confused because in the booking information it stated only 10 people per boat ride and we had way more than that. My only other issue was there were a bunch of flying bugs when we first got on boat and they continued to fly all around us until we actually started driving .
Go to the bathroom first
, Feb 2022
Larry was great! He was very informative and answered all of our questions. I enjoyed the tour. However, The boat was small. There is no bathroom on board.

Not very informative
, Feb 2022
The boat captain only showed a few houses and gave only a little info on Tampa history. When we tried to ask a question, he was on the phone. He drove very casually and nearly hit a bridge. I would have liked a lot more information.
Great experience
, Feb 2022

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.
