I was there for work and had limited time. Ended up having extra time on my second day so I went on the duck tour. Went on the Austin in 90 minutes on the first day. I enjoyed going on the lake, but other than that, the duck tour didn't cover nearly as much as the 90 minute tour. If... More

Everyone is given a quacker before boarding the Duck Boat. The driver we had, Randy, is a retired Austin fire fighter and he has been with the company 15 years. He was funny and knowledgeable. We toured 6th Street, The Hills, the Capitol as well as went into the Lake Austin part of the Colorado River. It was a great... More

I had taken a Duck tour in Boston and it was a lot of fun. Our driver there was funny, told lots of jokes, had us quack and wave at everyone we saw . . . and showed us the sights. I booked this in Austin for two adults and three kids (6, 11, 12) and thought it would be... More

I was really excited about this tour, so I couldn't wait to go. Overall, it was just okay but it seemed short. They do not spend enough time on the water but I think if they did, it would have been better. They did offer free water, which was nice since it was hot outside. The driver told jokes and... More

I've been on a number of Duck Tours in various cities. This one was just ok...needed more historical information than was offered. I'd recommend it, however, for those from out of town who want a better look at Austin.

We took the Duck Tour to get an overview of city history and learn more about some of Austin's highlights. Our tour guide Darryl was entertaining and packed a lot of information into just over an hour. It was also fun to take the same vehicle into Lake Austin! Tour guides can make a big difference on these types of... More

Great family adventure, just a little hot on a typical Austin July afternoon. Captain Tim was very informative and a good driver on land as well as the lake. Unfortunately the music didn't work, but Tim made up for it with interesting facts about the history of Austin. I would recommend the tour for families as well as single folks,... More

I love these trips, and this one didn't disappoint. A great way to see Austin and get your bearings on the City. Forgive me as I have forgotten my tour guides name but he was great. He was a true local and was able to give some tips and tell us all about the History of Austin.
