We bought this as part of a package with aquarium admission package. It felt expensive and like most attractions they try to upset at every turn. The ride was well worth it! The guide and driver did a fantastic job. The Ohio River gave a chance to really fell like we rode an amphibious vehicle. We had a great time,... More

We took the haunted ducks tour and while not really scary found it interesting and fun. Got to see downtown (once is enough) and go on the river which was very cool. Captain was very professional and host was enthusiastic. Safety was not a concern at all. Everyone gets a duck call to blow and the kids use them quite... More

this attraction is good just for one time and also if you visit Cincinnati for the first time. It shows you the downtown and a little (I hope more) of the Ohio River. I think the price is good for the 45 min that you spend in this trip. I wish you can do something longer but it was fun!!!... More

As a previous duck rider in other cities, this ride did not disappoint. Our captain and guide both did their very best to point out historic and prominent points of interest during the tour. The guide was also quite the entertainer, she needs a raise. Would ride again in a heartbeat.

FINALLY made it to Newport On The Levee to Ride The Ducks! Other than the painfully slow process of buying tickets, what a GREAT time! It's always cool to see Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky from the water, and it's even cooler when the Captain and the guide are genuinely wanting you to have a good time. Loved the bits of... More

A very njoyable little tour via the river and streets in Newport and Cincinnati. Born and Raised here but learn thing I didn't know. Worth taking at least once. Lots of things to do and see around the pick up area in "newport ofn the Levee" resturants, shops and great easy parking.

We did the tour over Labor Day weekend on Saturday. I called and reserved our time for the duck boat tour and was also able to get our aquarium tickets at the same time. Once you get there you go to the welcome center close to the aquarium and pick up your tickets. They had 4 boats going that day,... More

I've been wanting to do this on many trios to Cincy. We finally got to do it! The website said tours ran until 5 p.m.However, the time we wanted to ride was booked- 4:00. I was sad until she said there were more tours and that they judge the time they stop taking passengers on the flow of the day.... More

This was definitely a different kind of tour. It was a lot of fun and there was a lot of history provided without feeling like you were at a museum. Be prepared to have everyone staring at you because you are on a bus (and a boat) and you have a duck quacker that you quack at everyone :) Great... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful ride on the Duck! Our driver and guide were very nice and full of information. The tour is about 45 minutes and travels on land and sea. This activity is for all ages. There were many little kids on the boat as well as adults. I recommend this to everyone who visits Newport.
