Make a splash in our Nation’s Capital aboard the DC Ducks, 1942 amphibious transport vehicles used to support and carry troops during World War II. Today they are a great way to see Washington by both land and sea. Winding our way first through the monuments, the Mall, the Capitol and museums of the Smithsonian before splashing into the Potomac and under the flight path at Reagan National Airport. Its fun for all ages!

They had two months to contact us about rescheduling or giving us a refund and never did. Then when we requested our money back they told... More

My aunt and uncle were visiting from Indonesia and really wanted to tour DC by a cruise along the Potomac. They told me this a day after they arrived so naturally, Spirit cruises, the Odyssey, and Mt Vernon cruises were all sold out.

Had a wonderful time on the Duck bus in DC . We would recommend to anyone. Conductor great, good narration and what a hoot when we went from land to water. Fun for the entire family. Catch at Union Station.

I suppose if you break down the trip into bits rather than looking it as a whole you might think it's over priced, the sights you see are good but there is nothing really that isn't covered elsewhere. But this trip has something special. The guides are amazing, knowledgable, fun and really passionate. It was a blast

A standard sightseeingtour, but with excellent storytelling tourguides ! The sailingpart is fun and giving a "quackattac" is hilarious....

The actual tour was very informative and a lot of fun. The only issue we had was making online reservations. The site clearly said electronic vouchers were accepted. However when we tried to board, we were told we had to have paper tickets. Had to go back inside the union station and have them printed. The people at the desk... More

Was looking for something different to do that included some sights without the hassle of having to drive. This was a great experience. Our driver was very knowledgeable about the area and we learned some facts that we never knew before. We bought our tickets in advance online. Luckily we arrived early and went inside to their station in Union... More

The entire family, ranging in age from three to 60+, loved our DC Duck Tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the buildings and monuments. He engaged the children by letting them "drive" the boat, and brought out the kid in each of us when the duck calls were handed out! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We had a great time on the Duck Tour of our nations' capitol. The sites in DC were well explained and our time one the Potomac River was peaceful and scenic. Especially with our knowledge and enthusiastic tour guide "Clark" Kent, onboard the Rubber Duck. I would recommend this tour to all traveling to DC. Thanks, Kent, We had a... More
