It is a very interesting tour from every point of view. Starting from the vehicle, which is a bus and a fully functional boat. It is also interesting because it summarizes the whole city history, but at the same time is so fun for the kids. They had a blast !

We had small work group that wanted to do something educational and a little fun - this Duck trip was both! "Donnie" was our driver and offered a lot of information on the state of Texas as well as Austin proper. Of course, took the truck/boat into a lake....fun and very different as I had never done this kind of... More

Great Tour, Got a Groupon which made it a great deal. Driver was excellent, in a really good mode and gave a great non boring tour. Would highly recommend especially if you can find a groupon-- half price.

I found the tour most enjoyable and informative. The tour showed a good overview of the city's attractions. The tour guide was entertaining and well informed. I was able to use Groupon so it made an enjoyable afternoon extremely affordable.

This was a fun way to see Downtown Austin & spend time on the lake, all via the same vehicle. The guide loved to tell corny jokes, but he knew his stuff and we had a great time learning about Austin.

This tour is great and if you have the right mindset then you will enjoy it. Here are my comments: - Buy your tickets on Groupon and get 50% off of your tickets (can be bought in groups of 2 or 4) - Save your Groupon ticket stub and get 10% off in the gift shop after your tour -... More

This was our second tour with family and we weren't very pleased with the second tour, compared to the first. The first tour was more informative and spent more time on the lake (a lot more time on the lake). The second tour guide ran out of things to say I guess when he felt compelled to tell us how...

My husband was initially hesistant to do this because we have been on the original Boston Duck tours, but he loved it! Our tour guide was awesome, a retired austin firefighter and very knowledgeable. We got the historical and pop culture view of the city.

Great ride, entertaining and family friendly driver. Very safe. Wish there was more time on water, still very cool. Worth the price. Company might consider longer rides with stops. AAA needs to update correct address.
