Pros: It is an ok attraction. It includes land and water tour. The driver was humorous. There's no wait even during busy times, they have back-to-back tours. Cons: The driver/guide doesn't go into the history or anecdotes about this historic city. The big, classless sign: "Driver works for Tips" on the Ducks' bus. The Ducks' buses are really old, very...

Captain Tommy is captivating with his knowledge for those thirsting for the history of Hot Springs, but also for those looking to build their itinerary. I suggest calling in advance and booking the first tour available that day to get a seasoned opinion of the best places to hit up. We caught the tour downtown in front of the wax... More

It is nice to ride in the historical WWII Duck boat and it was fun to go out onto Lake Hamilton. I would have preferred that there was less time spent on suggesting places to shop and fast food chains to eat at and more time spent on historical and geographical information. It is worth doing for the experience but... More

Of all the reviews that I read about the Duck Tours, I thought it was an attraction that my husband and I just had to experience. At $18.00 each, we expected to see a lot of Hot Springs that we had not already seen. Unfortunately, we did not see anything new. The tour takes you down Central Avenue, and then... More

The tour is very informative, but not as wild and crazy and fun as the Wacky Captains in Seattle! There wasn't any music, and the lake ride was short. However, lots of Hot Springs history is included in the tour!

The Duck tour was hugely over-priced. I say this only because, I feel that I should not have to pay almost $50 for three people (one being a 4-year-old) to get a tour of the best fast-food and retail in Hot Springs. Seriously, as we drove to Lake Hamilton, sights pointed out were Little Caesars Pizza, Pizza Hut, and a... More
