This is a MUST DO while in Seattle. We stumbled upon it by accident from a brochure in our hotel. We were able to walk from our hotel. Tickets were reasonable. Tour is 90 minutes. The tour guides are CRAZY, in a good way. Captain Dave had so much energy and was just a ton of fun. He had a... More

We only had time for one tour so I looked around and finally decided on the duck tour because it looked like fun and we had the added bonus of touring Lake Union. I also thought that I would get some good photos as it is an open air ride. Well, it is one of those rides that if you... More

I always say the enjoyment of any activity hinges upon 3 factors: 1. Your expectations 2. Your preferences 3. The company you keep That being said, I realized this was not a very informative tour, but rather a light-hearted introduction to the city. So my friend and I decided to be goofy and get the duck whistles and play along.... More

The tour was very funny and entertaining, with great sights, explanations, history bits, comedy bits, music and general fun. A bit cheesy and noisy, so you should come in not expecting your average historic city tour but rather one with some stand-up comedy and performance mixed in. A bit of advice: while front spaces usually get the best view in... More

I generally stay away from such tourist traps but I am happy I tried this cause this is experience worth having. Our captain was Mr. Philip Dover (I hope I am getting the name right). And he was funny and spontaneous and I can't recommend him enough.

Really enjoyed my trip on the Duck tour. Fun and informative tour with some humor added. Not cheap but a unique experience. Only thing is that they pre-allocate seats when you buy a ticket. I arrived early to get a window seat but was given an aisle by default and was not told. You need to get a 1 or... More

The water part was on Lake Union and very informative about the houseboats and floating homes. Seaplanes were taking off and landing all around.

This was the most delightful ride and experience ! Our driver was a lot of fun and great Music selections to accompany the ride... going from street into the Water.... unsettling maybe.. But it was such a beautiful day..It was the best way to see some of Seattle and a boat ride at the same time..
