Celebrities have flocked to Miami since the 1930s. Today, snap-happy tourists can catch a glimpse of their luxurious homes on one of many celebrity tours and cruises scattered across the city.
Miami is a hotbed of celebrity activity. Many of the most famous faces live along Miami’s “Millionaires Row”, a stretch of waterfront along Miami Beach lined with luxury hotels and mansions. Other popular celeb spots include Sunset Harbour, the Venetian Islands and Collins Avenue. Most tours take place on the water to include stops at famous island real estate, though some do take place on dry land. We’ve compared the best Miami celebrity home tours and cruises below, taking into account value for money, customer reviews, itinerary and frequency.
