The whole family had a lot of fun, worth every penny. The guide was funny and was very knowledgeable. Good family fun, and how many times can you drive a boat on land/ or float a car across the river.

Our son was home from being deployed to Iraq and we took his new wife along with our family and did the ride. It was so much fun and inexpensive. It doesn't last a very long time, so it is a good time for all, and can even entertain those who generally don't go for these types of tour rides.... More

Ride the Ducks is a great way to get a fun and unique tour of the city. Make sure you have the energy to enjoy the quirks of your tour guide. The tour guide was hilarious, fun, knowledgeable, and environmentally conscious. We loved every minute of it, and will recommend it We all received free duck noise maker souvenirs. It... More

Ride the Ducks was fun and entertaining, but did not last long enough. The employees are extremely friendly. I like to try new things so if you are on vacation, I would definitely ride the ducks.

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
