We visited Hot Springs the last wk of July. We were there mostly for hiking and water activities, but decided to try the duck boats. We hiked early in the a.m. and the heat made it too hot. This was a way to cool off! We have been on duck boat tours in other cities. Our guide was by far... More

We enjoyed this very much. The ride last about an hour half by the end of the ride my kids who are 1,5 & 12 was getting tired of riding. We did this at the end of our trip. During the ride they said we could show our ticket to different places for discounts, so we missed out on that.

It was really just an ok thing to do. For the price, it should have been a lot more. It took about an hour. The tour guide tried to be funny and amusing, but talked so fast he was hard to understand for most of the trip.

If you've never been on an amphibious vehicle this tour is for you! First the Duck Tour starts out across from Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs. After driving though town and the driver pointing out some interesting sites and historical facts, then you go down to Lake Hamilton and INTO the water. The Duck just goes down a boat ramp... More

Honestly the Duck Tour was the highlight of our trip to Hot Springs. It was fun, personal, entertaining and educating. It was my first in and out of water vehicle experience and it was great. Drove thru the streets of Hot Springs and then went on the Lake. Captain Tommy was very funny and an excellent guide. The only thing... More

This is probably the iconic way to see the city and I would recommend it to anybody, especially those with kids. I used to do it as a child with my grandparents and our daughter loved it as much as I did when you get into the water. The tour guides are all super friendly and you have some moments... More

We had Captain Tommy and he was great! :) He drives down Central Ave. telling a little history of the area. The "duck" is a WWII amphibious vehicle and can actually be driven into the water. The boat then does a little tour in the water explaining some of the history of the homes on the lake. I would definitely... More

We went on the duck tour with Captain Tommy. It was a great way to see the various attractions and things to do around Hot Springs. Captain Tommy was funny and kept us entertained throughout the whole trip. If you are visiting Hot Springs for the first time, we would highly recommend taking a duck tour with Captain Tommy.

Ok, I admit I only went on this tour because my husband wanted to. I don't swim so I was nervous about the water part, but captain Tommy was so informative and interesting that I never even got nervous. He however did make many jokes that would make some people nervous about the boat ride. It was great to hear... More
