Loved seeing so much of Austin without having to walk. Free quacker included with your tour and what better way to end your tour than with a boat ride on the lake!

We had a great time with the kids. They enjoyed the duck lips. They also liked it when we went into the water. Go early to avoid the hot tx weather?

The Austin Duck Tour departs from the Visitor Center downtown. The driver was very entertaining and the trip around the key sites of Austin - not that there are too many - was interesting and profession. The 'excitement' came from the water-borne section of the tour. After about 10 minutes our duck developed a steering fault. This meant that we... More

If you are easily irritated by noise this is not the tour for you. The noise marker can drive anyone crazy. Tour did not leave on time which was a little irritating as it was soo hot. The only cooling system on the boat with the natural air as it moves. Take a can fan from the welcome center. you... More

Great fun for young and old. Driver was informative and made us all laugh. From land to lake, this adventure was something anyone should do in Austin. It takes you around the high points of the city to give you an idea of where you might like to visit, then a quick tour around the lake...in the water.

My husband and I took this duck tour to relax and see some of the city. The tour guide seemed knowledgeable about Austin's history, but he failed to connect with the customers on the tour. Once we got into the water, the engine was so loud that I couldn't hear anything he said anyway. We had fun and learned a... More

My husband and I brought our 2 year old. What a great way to learn about the city! Our guide, Randy, was fun, informative and entertaining. He had great information about the history here. The price was great. We even received a Military discount. I've taken this tour in a few other cities and this was my favorite. Thanks for... More

Don't waste your money on this tour. We went on the 4pm tour on 22nd March, a Saturday. The tour is supposed to be 75 minutes but we were told by the tour guide that in order to avoid the traffic, the schedule is changed and in the end, the tour is just for an hour. What traffic? On a... More
