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

Been on this several times; ALWAYS had good tour guides & captains. They put you at ease, no matter your ages.They tell great stories, make learning about the Cincinnati area fun. Even got discounts at nearby shops/restaurants because of the quacker still on our necks!

Recently my family took part in this adventure. Our ages ranged from 63 to 1 1/2 years old, and all of us had a great time!! Our guide was a college student who is studying theater, and he added much to the experience. Riding the ducks is part history, part tour, part silliness, and all fun!!

A very unique amphibious vehicle ride through the streets of Cincinnati and into the Ohio river for a cruise. Very entertaining guides give you historical facts about the various buildings and stadiums you see along the way. Another short land tour of Cincinnati and back to New Port. Well worth the small added fee to your aquarium ticket. Get your... More

The boat Captain and tour guide were very enjoyable to listen to and the tour of Newport and Cincinnati was astounding. Getting in the water was a blast. Riding around downtown in the duck boat was fun. The folks in the city like seeing the duck boat drive by also with everyone blowing their duck calls.

This was a thrill ride for my grand children. We started off hearing about various buildings on both sides of the river, then drove into Cincinnati and splash went right into the river. If having a birthday they will let you drive the boat for a few minutes.

So happy to find a new coupon to ride the Ducks again. Cincinnati people, if you've been to a Reds baseball game this year, keep those tickets. On the back you will find a coupon for $9 off up to four adult admissions to Newport Aquarium and Ride the Ducks, Sunday thru Thursday only. Expires November 1st, 2015.

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
