My family and I just loved the tour! Our driver, was crazy and had many, many jokes about the city, but also lots of neat facts about Seattle. He kept the action going with many musical changes and the audience definitely got involved. It takes about an hour to get around the city and onto Lake Union for the "Duck"... More

This was the first thing I did when I got to Seattle, and I loved it! It was so much fun!! The tour guide was really awesome! I forget his name but he was an older man who kind of looked like Santa Claus. He clearly had a passion for his job and his enthusiasm was contagious. The experience was... More

It is a bit silly and very loud but nonetheless enjoyable. Quite the attraction for kids but do prepare for the gloomy and wet days.

We've seen Ducks around town for months/years and finally decided to take the plunge. The thing that stinks about the tour is that your experience is affected not only by the weather, but by the driver and the small group you end up with. Our driver was pretty funny, but had a hard time warming up the rather icy business... More

Bummer! Sounds like the Duck should be a no cell-phone zone! Glad you had fun - we'll pass along the feedback about music to our Captains and hopefully, we'll see, er, hear your karaoke voices soon! More

We only had a short time in Seattle and a good way to see many things in a short period of time is to participate in Ride the Ducks. The check in process is easy and they make you get your picture taken like you're on a cruise ship or something. Then they try to sell you the picture later.... More

Thing to remember about the ducks is that they are open air coaches, and you will get a chill if it's dull and windy outside... these amphibious buses get up to a whopping 41 miles per hour on the freeway! They kindly provide blankets to cover your knees... we used ours! The portion on the water is cool but a... More
