Fun way to get outside & on the water

Museums are great but need to get outside too. Perfect option for families, couples. Guide funny & informative. Loved riding in Duck boat & seeing the sights.

On a VERY hot day in Philly it was a nice way to see the city. Guide was very funny, talked the entire time, including a lot of very bad (quacking) jokes. Everyone gets a little gift when they get off, plus the chance to buy a boarding picture.

WE got to ride the Duck in Philly this summer.. my grandkids ages 7-13 LOVED IT! If you are lucky enough to have Wicky Wacky Vicki as your guide you are in for a treat. She is well informed of all the highlights of Philly plus has a great sense of humor! Great fun for the whole family!

It was an interesting experience and fun for all of us to ride the bus and then go on the water, kids really enjoyed it. The tour guide was informative and added a bit of additional unusual information to the tour. I would not recommend doing it on the same day with other city tours because info is repetitive.

My daughter who lives in Philly, recommended this ride. It was a fun way to get around and see the sights, but also to learn some of the history. Our driver/guide was Vicki. She was phenomenal. Very entertaining and engaging. We had 8 and 9 yr old girls who were thrilled with the experience. Definitely recommend this, and would request... More

Our guide was nice enough, but was more interested in telling her lame duck jokes than actually giving us historical reference. Very disappointed there wasn't more facts shared in a city so rich in history. Not sure if it was the companies script or hers- but it needs to be more informational.

Except for the fact that it goes on road & water nothing else is exciting.Not really worth 30$ per person.

Went on this in the spring and had a suprisingly good time. You see the city and get a quick trip on the river. Not bad.

I booked online with my family and drove over from Cherry Hill, New Jersey. We found parking around the corner from the location. As soon as we walked up to the location Nana Duck assisted us with an 5 start customer service experience. We then boarded the Boat drove around Philly saw all the historical districts and notable places with... More
