Love the ducks!

Lucky us for having a great tour guide and duck driver. Got tickets for 530pm. It was still hot! But we enjoyed it nevertheless.

My wife and I have seen these run for years and finally decided to take a ride. We very much enjoyed the tour of the city, the ride in the river and the knowledge and narrative of the guide. I would recommend that people of all ages take advantage of this attraction.

My 9 yr old granddaughter, was not looking to going at all. So I bet her 3$, that she would be having fun by the time we got back. Within 15 minutes she was singing and having a great time. The dj on our duck, was great and I learned a lot about Cincinnati. It's a definite must do, while... More

This was my 2nd trip to this attraction in 3 months. I was there for training in June, and took my family back this August. You tour the city of Cincinnati and Newport on the "land" Duck and then suddenly, this tour vehicle turns amphibious and you are floating along in the Ohio River. Guides are well-versed, can answer any... More

Everyone has to do this at least once. It's fun for everyone to enjoy. Do the aquarium and duck ride to get a better deal on both. Ride a boat that goes on the road and the river also.

Great guide! My only complaint is that it was shorter than expected. We weren't on the river very long, and the city tour was pretty short too. Nice tour, just thought we would see more. The Branson, MO one is a much better tour mainly because you see more. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Extremely frustrated with this experience. The 5pm boat was completely overbooked. The attendee confirmed all passengers really did have 5pm tickets. More were sold than could accommodate. We were offered reimbursement for the ride we didn't take and the girl was very apologetic. But shes not the one who sold too many tickets, she was on clean up duty. My... More

Went with my friend and her 20 year old daughter. Had a blast! Just long enough with enough history of KY and Cincy. Loved the duck call whistles!

I took my daughter and three younger relatives on the Ducks and had a blast. Loved this duck calls that we were given as part of the ride. Learned about Newport and Cincinnati as we drive through the streets, then when we went down the bank of the Ohio River and right into the water...that was cool. The captain let... More

Loved this ride and tour! Drew was our Guide and gave a LOT of great information about Newport and Cincinnati-both on the water and in city. Our Captain was fun also. Loved the singing and waving to the pedestrians and other boaters. GREAT fun!!
