We have rode that ducks in many different locations. These were so easy. You could show up when ever you wanted to and not have a time. They were very easy to load no climbing up the steps to get in or out of them. The tour was totally through the woods onto the lake and river so no downtown... More

Very nice trip on these boats it's nice that they have a young college kids conducting the tours, they have a cute script and they make it funny. It's super expensive, but the trip is really nice

The Original Ducks was a terrible waste of time. The driver's microphone was so loud our ears were ringing afterwards. The Duck boats were noisy and the exhaust fumes were awful. Count me as among the people who wished that they were one of the boaters that we passed by. The big splash that you see advertised happened once and... More

Great ride on old WWII vessels. Great history of the Wisconsin River and Devil's Lake as well as where the road washed away and how it got rebuilt. Did have a hard time hearing our driver over the speaker. The driver tells jokes to pass the time driving through the scenery. We went in the evening around 6:30p and saw... More

It was overrated and they are living off reputation. The price was very high. They take you on quite a few trails that don't show you much. Once you get to the water you have heard maybe 20 bad jokes. You get in the water twice with some nice views of the rock formations. The they try selling you a... More

This was the first thing my family did when we woke up in the Dells. We were hoping to take the duck tour to get some history of the area. I thought for what we got it was over priced. We arrived at the station around 9 a.m.... got right on a duck and away we went. Right away we... More

just because they're so famous. i really enjoyed the trip, especially going into the water. commentary was good although we didn't hear much about the native americans in the area's history. they sell a small booklet/postcards ($5) at the end which we bought and enjoyed reading. learned a bit more from the booklet that we didn't hear on the excursion.
