This was my second visit to Seattle and my second Duck tour, since it was so much fun the first time round. Great for all ages and a fun way to get a basic overview of the city by land and water. Be sure to get a yellow quacker!

A lot of fun. Plus a good overview of Seattle. Worth the ride. The driver takes you around the old part of Seattle prior to heading into the water. Guides are very knowledgeable and professional.

My husband and I decided to Ride the Ducks to experience Seattle in short amount of time. It was wacky and cheesy but a lot of fun. The drive/host was funny and very knowledgeable about the Seattle area. Going into the water with this water bus was great. The views are great, and it was a pleasant surprise. Great time... More

Busy in the summer. Westlake Shopping Center or Space Needle to pick up, use shopping center, less crowded. It's also by Nordstrom's and Macy's, food court inside (upstairs)-90 minute tour, land, lake, then land. Excellent captain! Get your quacker before you get on. If you can, get tickets on Internet so you don't have to wait in line or for... More

The captain/driver of the duck entertains with his patter and changing hats while providing interesting tidbits about the city. It's a good way to get a view of the city center and take a ride on the lake. Kids will love it, but so will adults.

We took the Duck on our first afternoon and it was such a great idea. We had some laughs (the guide and corresponding music are super funny) and got a quick peak at all the areas we would be exploring over the next few days. The highlight was floating into Lake Union, waving at houseboats and watching water planes land... More

This was our 4th Duck tour in different cities and by far the worst. If you want to ride in a disco , hear lame jokes and learn nothing about the city - this is the tour for you. It says a lot when the highlight of the tour was the changing of hats by the driver. I don't understand... More

We just spent a day in Seattle and we took the Duck tour leaving from the base of the Seattle Needle. The tour guide, a New Jersey teacher was the highlight. He must be an amazing teacher because he combined learning and fun. He showed us everything and his tour was interactive- we sang, he made us laugh. Worth every... More

It a basically a mini tour of a segment of Seattle. The guides point of places of interest, and give a brief history of the area. Going from land to water to land is pretty cool and being on the water is nice on a warm day. Our guide was witty and quite entertaining. By the end everyone is a... More
