After visiting the Liberty bell we found a tour ride aboard and amphibious vehicle. The tour takes about an hour and half but you see everything in Philly worth seeing. Not only do you ride in the streets you will also plunge into the River for a quick dip. The tour guides recommend places to go after the tour to... More

This was a good way to see the sights and experience something new. The tour actually takes you from land to river, in the same car!!! It's great! It's fun and informative at the same time. Nana duck is a great narrator, who engages the guests.

Spent a very enjoyable 45mins with a guided tour and a trip on the river. Nana Duck was brilliant with her humour and her knowledge of Philadelphia. We were driven by Captain Bubba Duck. They played music which coincided with quips about the history it was very entertaining! At one stage even my husband was doing the actions to the... More

This is my second Duck Tour after Boston's Duck Tour. Full of wonderful historical information. The bus is covered so can go when it's raining. The driver was funny and engaged people on the bus and also people that were standing on the sidewalk. The most fun part of the tour was the very moment that the bus entered the... More

We were able to book this through our Philadelphia Pass easily. Met up with our driver, Betsy Ross and had a great time listening to her narrative as we traveled the streets of Philly before splashing down in the river. Highly recommend this for a fun way to spend a few hours.

Took 3 kids all under 7 with us. They enjoyed it. Great guide with Duck Joseph. Made our tour great fun for all ages. The kids quacked for hours later on their duck kazoos. Loved it. And the picture souvenir turned out great also.

The neatest city tour in town. Take a plunge into the Delaware river. Very informative caption and first mate. You even get your own duck call, a whistle at end of tour.

This was our first time on a duck boat and were not impressed. The tour was part of our Philadelphia Pass so we decided to give them a try. between the guide cracking himself over his lame jokes, gaining the attention of passerbys by making everyone on the bus "quack" and annoying the driver, he delivered very little real information...
