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.

Tour guides are great, interactive & just make for a very fun 45 min. The combo price with the aquarium is a great deal and make for a fun day. Book duck tour time first as they fill up quick.

Captain Ken and Zach made the experience fun. They had lots of interesting facts. Especially for us since we weren't from the area. I had done the duck tour in Branson years ago. so I wanted to show my family the duck tour in Newport. My four year old couldn't believe that it could go in the water.

I was very appriensive about taking this tour after reading some of these reviews, about being too noisy and annoying. But let me tell you, my son, who is 27 and autistic and myself had a WONDERFUL time!! I think my son's favorite part was entering the water, he got a little wet. We did the 11am tour and we... More

I love the duck tour in Boston - so when I saw that Newport offered one, I knew my family had to participate, if possible. Learning that it was only a 45 minute tour - I though our not yet two year old could handle it well! We got a combo ticket with our aquarium ticket - which saved us... More

Terrific ride and tour. Exceeded our expectations for fun and laughter. Never saw so many adults (and kids) tweeting their duck bill calls!

Boarding right at Newport on the Levee is one of the best sight-seeing adventures you will ever have on land... AND water! That's right! Climb aboard these spectacular WWII vehicles, where you will be greeted with fun facts, lively music, and tons of fun, as you cruise through the streets of Northern Kentucky and downtown Cincinnati. And hold on tight... More

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
