Fun time for families or couples. A chance to see Space Needle area and South Lake Union. Very entertaining! Come ready to laugh! Buy tix online to avoid a wait.

OMG if I ever have to do this tour again I will jump out of the duck. The tour was so loud and obnoxious and annoying. I couldn't even focus on how much I really like Seattle because I was just begging it to be over. Our tour guide was too over the top and loud!!!! I've done a duck... More

Uninformative and relentless in attempts at humor. Hilarious for those under 15, perhaps. After a while I believed that pedestrians asked to wave in our direction actually felt sorry for us. I have done one of these in Boston and enjoyed the perspective and history. Not so in Seattle. I seriously could not wait for this to end.

You get taken around Seattle all the while hearing different things about the city, but the fun part is when they take you into the water and you get to see even more from the view of the water. Lots of fun!

Informative and fun. Any visitor or resident of Seattle must Ride The Ducks! I know some people aren't impressed, but they need to lighten up and enjoy life. The Captains are always nice and fun.

I went on this thinking it would be a hop on hop off style tour. It turned out to be for a younger audience than I thought. It was very different than the more historic one I took in Boston. I would only recommend this if you are with children. They had great and friendly staff, but the tour just... More

We had limited time in town and decided to do this tour. Yes, it is slightly cheesy and if you don't like loud music and "witty" narration, you probably won't like this but overall we enjoyed it. Our driver was funny and informative and we felt like we got a good feel of the city on this tour. It is... More

My cousin lives in Seattle so my family visits every year but we have never done the duck tour. We were there on a beautiful early March Saturday morning and it was perfect for this tour. Though very chilly, they provide thick blankets to help keep passengers warm. Our guide was Phlip D Over (get it?...flipped over!). He was an... More
