This was a great tour, and the driver made it more fun than anything. He must have had 15 or 20 hats and changed them to match the theme of the location he was showing us. He also had everyone get a plastic sword and yell, grrrrrr, when approaching another duck tour. Of course the driver provided them and they... More

Rode the duck with my 67 year old mother in law, my husband, and two boys ages 8 and 10. Everyone enjoyed the trip. The boys especially liked the quackers and seeing a sea plane land on the water. The rest of us enjoyed the great commentary and interesting facts. Felt that it was worth the money. We had Barry... More

It was enjoyable to see Seattle and learn about it. The amphibious bus is a hoot, and the guides are funny. But they give kids duck whistles, which combined with the P.A. system makes things loud.

This is a very silly tour that is thoroughly enjoyable for anyone willing to let their freak flag fly! Kids of all ages will love the goofy "captain" as he navigates the streets of Seattle and nearby Union lake. I had so much fun, I forgot to take photos. The only downside to the experience is the seats are rather... More

Took the tour mainly because we wanted to experience the combination of driving through the streets and across union lake. The tour is fun and gives you some nice information about Seattle and many interesting views (e.g. they show you the famous house of sleepless in Seattle). One heads up: The driver is being kept busy by changing his "outfit"... More

Tour was disappointing. Not enough of sites. Driver was trying very hard to make everyone enjoy the trip but wish we had learned more.

Fun tour that provides a great overview of the city of Seattle and its layout (I have to admit I was still confused for another half day but it did help!) Energetic tour guides make the trip enjoyable - we went with another couple and surprisingly there were no kids on our tour, but it would be a great trip... More

We were recommended this attraction as a way to see the City. Our driver was an obnoxious, frustrated, stand-up comic who played annoying music and wanted us to participate in singing "YMCA." He repeated himself countless times and was extremely irritating to endure. I wanted to see the city, not return to the 2nd grade. That said, the tour itself... More
