It was our first experience on the Duck Tours and we had a fun time. Our tour guide Bill quacked us up. He was knowledgable about the city and pointed many highlights especially in Old City where we were not going to visit. The tour also went to the Philadelphia Art Museum and Franklin Institute. Then we ventured to The... More

This year I was determined that my children would see more of Philadelphia than the inside of museums, zoos, gardens - as great as all of those things are! The Duck tour was "awesome" according to my 10-year old. It's about 90 minutes and featured a lot of great facts about popular attractions in Philly. It's not just a tour... More

This was a nice open-air narrated ride. The hostess told some corny jokes some of which were funny and supplied visitors with a lot of historical facts of the area.

Took this tour with my boyfriend on a whim. We honestly had a blast. Our tour guide was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the city. We saw so much more on the Duck than we would have seen on foot and learned a lot more. Entry in to the river was quite interesting. I would recommend this for anyone who... More

Even though we live in Philadelphia, we decided to be tourists one day recently and did Ride the Ducks. I am shocked to say even though I grew up here, I still always learn something new ... be it historical or pop culture related and this time was no different. I am surprised to say I learned anything because I... More

We had family over from England who wanted to visit Philadelphia. Not really being familiar with the city we opted to take them on the Ride the Ducks tour which turned out to be an excellent idea. It was mid-afternoon on a weekday and heading into rush hour. There is no way I would have been able to cover the... More

Our driver and tour guide were wonderful. They did a great job and not only entertained us but more importantly kept us safe. We saw the major attractions. We found out some of the back stories not otherwise known. We got to see some other attractions not on the touristy maps. The water portion kind of freaked me out, but... More
