Lauren was fun and made the tour informative and interesting. We had a good time. The other staff were great. I had my mother with me and she has a hard time getting around they were patient and caring. That is amazing in itself. Glad we made the trip, we all loved it.

I've been on the duck tour in San Francisco and Boston, and this was my first one in Philadelphia. These tours are always fun and a great way to see the city's historical highlights both on and off water. Our tour guide was awesome. A born and raised Philadelphian, he knew all the little gems of his city and thoroughly... More

Nana Duck was awesome! Kids and adults loved her. She was funny and informative. Even the most cynical of our group enjoyed the tour.

We enjoyed our visit to Philadelphia. The duck tour was very nice. We were a little concern since in the past they had an accident with a boat, but our tour went smoothly with out any problem. You do get to see a lot on the tour. The kids liked the boat ride.

We went on the tour with two children, 5 and 9. Our 9 year old has some anxiety and was really worried about getitng on but the tour guide explained everything really well and she was at ease for most of the trip. The whole trip took about a little longer than the 90 minutes they announced. I am glad... More

This tour is best for those with kids. You don't get told much history - more simply pointed out the key buildings. We had fun and paid the ticket principally for the quirkiness of going on a vehicle that travels on land and the water in one tour.

I found a groupon to Ride the Ducks in Philadelphia and although Phila doesn't really excite me, I thought the Duck experience might be fun. Was I ever glad we went! The tour was so much fun and quite informative. The captain expertly navigated the vehicle through the streets of Philadelphia and not only gave us information but also told... More

Perhaps the activity is fun when you are with kids under the age of 10; other than that there is not much to see or do. Sure enough, the change from a road vehicle to a boat is interesting and so it is probably worth the price of your tickets, but there is not much sightseeing, either during the ground... More

My daughter wanted to see the historic area of Philadelphia. Started our day on a Ride the Ducks tour. Our tour guide combined fun with a history lesson. We laughed and learned for a 90 minute tour. It was topped off with a splash down for a quick cruise in the Delaware river. Highly recommend to start your day in... More

I'm from out of town visiting my friend and we thought this would be a fun for the kids. We used the address 6 chestnut ave. which was posted on their website and it lead us to the wrong location. After paying for parking and searching for a few minutes we tried calling the number on their website. No one... More
