Our duck boat tour was scheduled to board at 11:15 and depart at 11:30. Since I have back issues and cannot stand for long periods of time, we planned to arrive at 11:15 and quickly be seated. Instead we stood in line until 11:34, four minutes after our duck boat was supposed to depart. They finally opened the roped off... More

This tour was my family's favorite part of Cincinnati/Newport. The tour guide was filled with good information about the area (the facts about Great American Ballpark were particularly interesting) and the ride/cruise was a great break from walking around Newport on the Levee. The quackers are a neat (included in price) souvenir, my 2 year old gets a kick out... More

We decided to ride on a whim after the boyfriend decided he wanted to ride the "boat cars". ;) We ended up being the only two on the tour with Captain Glenn and the wonderful D.J.! Both gentlemen were wonderful and filled our tour with laughter and the random tidbits of knowledge that my boyfriend and I both crave. We... More

This is a must do if in Newport. The crew was wonderful and you do get a different view of Cincinnati from the Ohio River. Weather was great so it made it more enjoyable.

We did this as our first activity upon arriving in town and I am so glad we did. It brought many interesting things to our attention and enhanced our activities for the rest of our stay.

We were visiting my son in Cincinnati for the July 4th weekend and decided to Ride the Ducks! What a blast! We really had a great time and enjoyed the informative running commentary by our guide. The weather was perfect! Definitely need to make a reservation. Lots of options for lunch or drinks at Newport on the Levee before or... More

Ride the Ducks is a fun and informational way to learn more about Cincinnati and Newport. It was really cool to ride down the river and see a different perspective of the city. I would highly recommend this, but it can be noisy as everyone on the boat has a quacker!

We loved this tour. As stated by other reviewers, great way to see some of downtown Cincinnati and learn some things you didn't know. The weather was awesome and it was fun to ride in the boat down the River. I definitely recommend booking in advance so you can get the time you want.
