So, we had never done a Duck tour before but were advised by an aquaintence to try the Duck tour as a way to see Seattle. Terrible advice to say the least. We showed up to an obnoxious group of people blaring nauseating duck whistles. The tour guide proceeded to tell corny joke after corny joke, laughing incessantly at himself... More

Sorry to say, but I would definitely pass on this tour. The driver and the guide both have great personalities, but this tour really is nothing other than 1 1/2 hour comedy act. In most cities we usually take the hop on hop off tours (I don't think they are offered in Seattle) which includes a decent amount of information... More

The Duck Tour is the most fun and probably one of the least expensive tours in Seattle. It's a land and water tour...land major Seattle sites.. water...The best way to see the great house boats in Seattle...including the Houseboat used in the movie Sleepless in Seattle.

I went into Seattle with my daughter over the summer and we rode on the ducks. We had a great time. Our driver was amazing and I felt safe. I'm glad they are working on there land/sea vehicles and are adding a person. I do wonder how much the prices are going to be after they do that. I hope... More

If you've never done a Duck Tour you are missing out on a great trip. Riding in a world war 2 amphibious vehicle that takes in the main highlights of the city and then goes for a leisurely splash on Lake Union all whilst providing information, education and fun - more cities should have these..! Our Captain was really good... More

We took a Duck tour in the afternoon which gave us less heat and really nice views of the city specially when we took a trip in the water. Our tour guide/ captain really went out of his way to make the trip really fun and engaging. If the space needle line is too long go on the ducks instead,... More

What a fun way to see Seattle! Did this twice with kiddos and with out of town guests. You feel like you're in an improv act and beyond awesome when you transition from street and into a boat cruising the waterway. A must do when in Seattle.

This was so fun. Our driver was funny and we had a great time! They gave the little kids "duck bill" quackers to quack - and they loved it. I highly recommend this if you are visiting the city!

We have ridden the Ducks several times with out of town visitors. The visitors have a really great time, we do too. Great ride to get a lay of the land and something the "kids" will remember for a long time.

I live in Seattle and had never taken this tour until friends came to town. We had so much fun. The guides are entertainers as well as good guides. Great overview of Seattle with lots of laughs thrown in. All ages will enjoy this.
