Took a long wknd over to Cincinnati/Newport and needed something to do on the one of the days that was especially warm, we loved this! Being history buffs, it's nice to see sites that have a backstory to them! And the ride into the river was great too. Such a nice close-up of the bridge. With our group being two... More

This was a fun tour for the kiddos and a good way to see downtown Cincinnati however giving everyone a duck call before the tour made it hard to hear the tour operator and just extremely annoying after about 5 mins. Our tour guide was entertaining when she could be heard and we don't regret attending the tour, but it... More

I cannot say enough about the ducks! Best thing you can do! So much fun and nice way of getting a tour and city information. Have been on the one in Seattle too and it was just as amazing. I tell everyone to ride them. I'll be back in Cincinnati this weekend. See you Sunday Ducks!

Julia, the tour guide, and the captain made this an absolutely great experience, especially since we had two young ones with us. The drive into the water was great, as was the boat ride itself. Stunning views of the Roebling Suspension Bridge. Also some great information about both Cincinnati and Newport... especially with my hubby and I loving some background/history,... More

This was our second time on this tour. A nice informative tour of the city and a ride in the Ohio river as well. It is a must when the weather is good to give it a try. It is for all ages but the quackers you receive that look like duck bills are loud but a lot if fun.

I read the negative reviews, I expected kids to quack their duck calls, however, we got lucky and hardly heard a quack! Not being from the area, I enjoyed hearing the history and cute stories about newport and Cincinnati. I really enjoyed driving into the water! How cool! I wish I owned one of these living in Michigan, surrounded by... More

Hubby and I decided to do this with a friend. It is 18.00 a person and takes about an hour to do. They first take you down the ohio river a little ways and then through downtown cincy and through newport. The kids on the boat are constantly blowing on their quackers, as the "tour guide" Holly halfheartly gives us... More

My wife and I read the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and feel we were completely mislead by those claiming this tour is for all ages. I can understand how children would completely love this tour. However, if you're an adult seeking a tour that you can take some knowledge away about the city you are visiting, steer clear. Not only... More

This was our 1st time on the boat ride. We thought our 2yr old would enjoy it, and he LOVED it!! The tour gave a few interesting facts about the boat itself and about Cincinnati. Definitely would recommend, especially for children!!!!

My mother-in-law treated our family to Ride the Ducks for her birthday. My kids, 13 & 10, were with us as well as other family members... ranging in age from early 30s to mid 80s -we all thoroughly enjoyed the ride. It was informative and entertaining, even a bit relaxing for me -to ride/float around and hear history & facts... More
