City tour in an amphibious, original, and passing through some streets as usual buses do not visit. 10 minutes trip over the Delaware River, friendly with New Jersey we see on the other side. Warning to book at the kiosk in Visitor Center.

Great way to tour the city with a family on a budget. Discounts are easy to find online. Our tour guide (Angie) was great! QUACK!

I bought my tickets for the Ride the Duck Tour through the Historic Philadelphia web site. They were offering a special called "Duck, Duck, Liberty" ticket. The site gave a 10:00 a.m. time for the duck tour and directions to pick up our tickets at the Visitor Center. The only problem is the visitor center doesn't open until 11:00 on... More

We have been on the ducks in a few other cities. Captain Norm is by far our favorite so far. We got onto the city at 2, and were on a dick tour at 4. We got a good lay of the land and learned some history. Great tour in you are in the city for the first time and... More

I have been on the duck tours in so many cities, and it has been great. The tour guide was so bad! The driver said it was his first say on the job. The company should never let a new person like this run a tour with out help. This was a complete waste of money and time. The other... More

This was a great intro to all the historic sites. It is definitely a "mile wide, inch deep" tour with a funny tour guide. Afterward we were able to select sites to visit for a more in depth inspection (e.g., Ben Franklin's home) but for many sites, it was enough to see it and hear the guide's story (e.g., where...

An enjoyable guide, a bit of a bumpy ride, and an unexpected splash down into the Delaware River made this an enjoyable way to see the city. Now give me my quacker!

This was my first time ever going on this type of tour, scheduled thru Hard Rock Café for a group of us. This was so much fun, to drive around the streets of Philadelphia checking out all the historical places, and then going into the water was a blast! Tour guide was so fun, quacking at almost everybody and place.... More

Long story short, I couldn't get in to Independence Hall, and there was a long line for the Liberty Bell, so I took a Duck Tour. I was fortunate to draw Captain Norm, cheery man who splits his time between acting on Blue Bloods and driving ducks. Norm was very entertaining and seems to truly enjoy his job. His driving...
