I have a picture from 1977-ish of my 4 year old self, driving one of the same duck boats they use now... 35+ years later! Today I took a picture of my 4 year old son driving one too! This tour is a perfect combination of fun & adventure, mixed with beautiful scenery, at a pace to enjoy it all!... More

Went on the Ducks with my family (my 3 year old's first time) and they all loved it. I can recall going on this ride when I was a kid. "Tour guides" or "Drivers" still have that humor thrown in. Luckily we had a coupon for a free child with paid adult admission and another coupon for $5.00 off an... More

We went on the morning of August 27th. Our driver was funny and very personable. The trip was interesting and beautiful. It was nice to get of glimpse of how the Wisconsin Dells once looked like before it became a carnival. Thank you Ducks for buying up that land and preserving the history and beauty that once was!!

This was our second time taking a ride in the ducks. We had a great time. The driver was excellent. Being able to see all the sandstone formations when in the water was great. Will go again sometime for sure.

This is truly one of those unique things you simply must do in your lifetime. On everybody's bucket list. And do the "Original" ducks. This combo boat/land tour takes about an hour and is so scenic amid all the hustle and bustle of the Dells 'entertainment' and waterparking, it is worth it to just unwind and ride along to see...

My husband and I joined a tour on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed it. We loved cruising along the river. It was a pity that the PA system was too quiet, would have liked to enjoy the jokes.

After many trips to the Dells I finally rode the Original Ducks on our last vacation. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and we had an awesome time. Yes the engine is load, but they were built to be war machines. Our tour guide, Bri, did an awesome job. Yes, the jokes are corny, but would you rather them just... More

This boat ride was fun.the driver was funny and entertaining. Wisconsin as a State is beyond beautiful. Wisconsin Dells is beautiful once you get away from all the cheesy(no pun intended) aspects of the town and see what nature has to offer.

We took the lower dells tour. It was pretty and the driver was funny, but it seemed kind of short and overpriced. It is awkward when they stop the boat and try to sell the book and postcards...they need to just pay the drivers more and stop that. Next time I would like to try one of the longer rides... More

Our family of four took an Original Wisconsin Dells duck boat ride. We have two teenagers and even they enjoyed the ride and are still talking about it! This is a MUST do when in the Dells! The ride was one of the longer attractions we went to and the driver was great with his stories and jokes all along... More
