A few years ago, my husband and I took 4 13 year olds on the Philly Duck Tour. I found myself with my daughter in Philly last week looking to kill time. I gave my now 18 year old a few choices. She chose the duck tour. I am from Philadelphia and love history. On our first tour, I was... More

My besties and I were just spending a couple days in Philly as a weekend getaway. One of the things we did was ride the Duck. It was a blast! We didn't have a lot of time and this was a great way to see many sights in a short time. The guide was very informed and gave us the... More

Our tour guide on this trip made Philadelphia come alive for us. He told stories, gave details about the innumerable buildings, parks, and other landmarks, and made us laugh. The Philadelphia skyline from the river sparkled on the sunny day we visited. Although the wheelchair lift was slow and clunky, it made the ride possible for me and everyone was... More

Great for my 9yo son and I. I like learning history and he liked the ride, sightseeing and especially heading into the water. Would have liked more on the education end, maybe a map would be helpful as well. Your guide was nice and funny, but couldn't hear her very well. All in all got some info & had fun.

I love the Ducks tours. I've done several in different cities and have been on the Phillie tour before and had a great time. The guides have all been great and made the passengers laugh...until today when we had the worst guide ever. Well, that's not quite fair. His tour information was acceptable, but his jokes were so lame and... More

Our tour guide was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the city. I thought my kids (5 and 7 yr old) would be bored learning about the city but they were entertained the whole time! Overall great experience and would recommend to anyone (even without kids).

Our family of 5 - 4 adults and 1- 10 year old Grandson took the land and sea tour and absolutely loved it! Try to get our tour guide Betsy Ross who was entertaining, informative, and a very skilled driver both by land and sea! If you can do only one tour this is the one to do! They are... More

We have tried to do the Duck city tours wherever we find them. We have had some fun experiences doing those tours, however, the Philly Duck did NOT quack us up!!! My husband knew more of the history of Philadelphia than our guide, the driver was in my opinion somewhat reckless in maneuvering through traffic and construction thru the streets,... More

A perfect little tour with a splash into the Delaware. We had Nana Duck who was informative and told groaner jokes, a pleasant ride around the sites and a dip in the Delaware at Penns Landing. A great way too see the main attractions of Philadelphia and decide what you want to revisit, a wonderful fun ride and kids especially... More
