So much fun! We had a wonderful driver, who had us laughing and smiling most of the trip. The tour got us to see places we would have missed otherwise. Great for all ages.

We've been on the Seattle ducks before. I remember it being a great way to visit Seattle and see more of the surroundings. The ducks are definitely one of those things that the amount of fun you have depends on your guide.... ours was just OK this time. She thought she was funny but I would say about 80% of... More

So much fun! The drivers are amazingly funny and informative. Loved learning about the city and how we ended up in Lake Union. It was July 4th, so the lake was buzzing with boats and police!

The first time we visited Seattle (3 years ago), we took a land based hop on-off bus tour; this time we took the land/water 'duck' tour and it was a lot of fun. The tour guide (can't remember his name) was a very fun and funny guy - he was quick and witty. This tour basically covered the downtown area... More

Ride the Duck was an awesome start to our Seattle visit. Captain Philip was funny and informative - he was able to keep everyone engaged for the full length of the tour. The tour was on schedule and took us through interesting parts of Seattle. The captain was a lot of fun and pointed out interesting facts like the house... More

Several local colleagues (and my hotel concierge) recommended The Ride the Ducks tour and I am glad that I listened to them. It was a little hokey but a lot of fun. The tour took us to neighborhoods that I hadnt had a chance to see and it was great to be out on the lake!

Quack Quack jump on board the ducks for a fun filled tour of Seattle by land and water. My wife and I always look for a "Ride the Ducks" when visit a new city. This trip was no different and the "Ducks" where great. Our captain give us a great 100 minute tour that was just the right amount of... More

This was so much fun! I would recommend it no matter what age you are. We had four adults and three kids from the age 6-2. The kids had fun with the music going and of course the duck quack things. We got a chance to see sea planes take off and land while we were in the water and... More

My wife and I have lived in Seattle all of our lives and had seen the famous duck tour buses on many occasions but had never bothered to partake. Well that changed when friends from Australia came in for a visit and we were thinking of things we could do with them. We booked an early morning tour (10:30) on... More
