Very knowledgeable staff and driver was excellent. A little disappointed in the amount of time on the lake. It seems that driver's drive as fast as they can and get the tour over quickly to pick up the next set of passengers. Kind of pricey also.

We left 20 minutes late, we were the first couple on the duck, driver told us where to sit, but had to move so 2 couples coming down the street window shopping could sit together while we waited for them to board.

We drove down the road with the driver telling about what attractions and pointing them out where they give discounts with our ticket and a free wine tasting. He did give a little history but more advertising then anything else. When we got to the lake we drove around in a small circle while training a new driver, then we... More

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

75 minute tour on land and on lake. Tour captain was very informative and entertaining. Gave lots of tips on local shopping and places to eat. Pet friendly. We enjoyed the tour.

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
