This starts on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River,motors over the bridge into Ohio and launches into the river from the Cincinnati side.It includes a land based tour of Downtown Cincinnati and Newport Kentucky.We are locals but we learned great deal on this tour that we did not know.It is about an hour long.Just about right.

This was a great tour of downtown Cincinnati. The tour guide was so personable and funny! The ride was smooth and educational. I learned many things about my city that I never knew. It is a fun and very safe 45 minute excursion for the whole family. Oh, and you get a free "quacker" to keep!!

We had our grand girls for the weekend. 7 & 16. Came down to the Newport aquarium. Bought a combo ticket...had a blast! The tour guide was hilarious plus very informative about things to do and see in Cincinnati & Kentucky! Recommend this ride immensely! You won't be disappointed. Fun for ALL! 😍

How cool that a bus can go from land to water. My kids enjoyed the tour. I love the history of the tour. However, we were seated in the back of the bus and it was VERY HARD to hear the tour guide because of the LOUD motor behind us while in the water. Maybe another speaker toward the back... More

You start out on land and splash into the river for awhile and back on land . You get 'duck quackers" when you board. It was very entertaining. The Captain and Zak our guide made it so fun. A must do rain or shine!

A ton of fun! Everyone must have their own duck call for this trip. Riding a revamped historical vehicle is just plain interesting. The operator will quack you up during your adventure. Ride the Duck and have a quack in good time.

Saw the duck driving down the street and just had to try it out! I enjoyed this tour very much! You start near the Newport Aquarium, & drive over to Cincinnati. You drive right into the water at the public launch. After going up and down the river a bit, the duck goes back on land for a tour of... More
