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.

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!
