Went to Seattle to visit family and got talked into doing a Duck Tour in 34 degree weather. Open vehicle - windchill - get my drift? Well we had an awesome time with our Captain Phlip (yes that is how he spells it). We sang and joked around while weaving in some history about the area. People on the streets... More

Our last day in Seattle was raining - so - lovely weather for ducks! Off to get a Ride The Ducks. This was the best fun I'd had in Seattle! Great tour around the city and onto the Union Lake to see floating houses and bridges and other wonderful things. Then back to continue our visit of the city. Great... More

I always enjoy going on duck tours to learn about new cities I visit. This tour didn't compare favorably to others I've been on. Not much history was provided and, for some reason, all the music that was constantly blasted was from the 70s and earlier. The driver wanted everyone to sing along - and most people were too young... More

Called at 11:25 and they said it would leave at noon. Hightailed it 8 blocks in the rain and got there at 11:45. At the ticket booth they said the noon ride was sold out, although there were no other people there on a rainy November Thursday. They obviously cancelled this trip due to low or no ticket sales. Why... More

My husband and I took this tour the first morning we were in Seattle. It was a cold morning but at least it was not raining and a blanket was provided. captain Tuck and Roll was very informative as well as entertaining. He was VERY good with the 6 little girls who were with their dads for a father/daughter outing.... More

Not sure if the commentary of the driver is the same in all of the units and was pre-written for them. Our driver was exceptionally funny, sarcastic, entertaining and certainly it has made all the difference. We laughed so hard at some of the jokes. Great Fun!

It was a bit cold the day we went, but we still had fun. Aside from two obnoxious men who spent the entire trip trying to get attention, it was a pleasure. The ex-Navy tour guide was fun and professional and patient with the aforementioned boors, and we had a really great tour. Yes, it's touristy and tacky and exactly... More

I was riding the Duck with a buddy the day before the Seahawks played (and beat) New York. We were bumping along down in the old part of town where lots of people were milling about. Someone on the tour shouted to the captain to play some new Seahawk song called Over the Line. Not having the song, the capt... More

Although we had all adults other than one young boy, this tour was for children. The guide insisted someone on board had to be celebrating something so ultimately an old Vietnam veteran with a birthday in the near future wore the silly BD crown. The juvenile tour continued with silly songs and jokes with very limited information regarding Seattle sights... More
