Let me start by saying I love having fun, and am up for a great time, however .... Our duck was captained by Allie Cat, who for some reason found that it would be good to address us in a child like voice. I'm sure she must also be on commission from Starbucks as she mentioned them way, way, way... More

We had taken a Duck Tour in Boston so we knew what to expect. I bought a duck honker for my 12 yr old granddaughter (lots of laughs) which she thought was a hoot! They are a fun bunch of people, know the areas and prompt all when to holler and toot!. Going around Union Lake was nice. Really interesting... More

Our Captain was Leonardo DiQuackio, which gives you an idea of the flavor of this tour. He was great! I'm always impressed how the folks who do this must have to repeat the same patter over and over and yet they still make it sound fresh. He offered a lot of interesting facts about the City and it's history. It... More

If you like corny jokes, then sign up. Not only is the tour informative and a lot of fun, but it is the best way to get an overview of the whole city.

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
