LOVE Duck Tours

We had so much fun on our duck tour with Captain Polly-Esther! This is a must do to familiarize yourself with the area. Highly recommend getting a quacker to add to the experience!

If you are visiting Seattle, i would do this tour near the beginning of your trip so you can get your bearings. The driver/captain we had was really good fun, but also extremely informative especially with recommendations about what you should do in the city, when to go to the places and how much they cost. the tour itself lasted...

We were hesitant to book this tour. Our five year old son wouldn't let us get away without going. We were glad we did. The vehicle is old, and a bit bumpy. Seats are hard and narrow. We embarked on a sunny afternoon with many empty seats so we took advantage and spread out. The jokes were cheesy, but the... More

We were in Seattle the first week of April and decided that the Duck tour would be one of the things that we would do. We drove to the Seattle Center, parked and then walked over to the loading area. It was busy but we were able to get tickets for the next Duck. We went with a old high... More

Did this tour on our first day in Seattle and it was great for getting our bearings and pointing out the main attractions. The novelty of being in an amphibious vehicle built for the world war and driving round the city and then into lake Union makes this a must do tour. We went past the house from Sleepless in... More

One teenage son, one 52 year old mom, and one 85 year old grandfather, and this attraction had us all laughing and enjoying ourselves. The driver/tour guide was great, the Seattle tour was pleasurable, and the humor was right at my teenage son's level so there was a little bit for everyone! Transportation on both land and water from the... More

What a great way to see Seattle and be entertained while you ride in a cool looking safari amphibious truck! We did this in July, 2014 after disembarking from an Alaskan cruise and the open air tour of the city and scenic waterways was so much fun!!! I highly recommend this tour. In fact, I am doing the duck tour... More

Loved the energetic vibe from beginning to end. The tour guide was humorous, entertaining at the same time as educational. Great place to take in the sites of Seattle, learn about the history and industry while being entertained and making family memories. From age 7 to 41, it was the favorite of all family members. Would love to do it... More

it was our captain's first day on the job. Capt. Sacre Blue (not sure if that's his real name) but he shared a lot of city history along with the corny jokes that makes city tours enjoyable. The actual time on the water, which is towards the end, is not as "wow" as I expected, and I was actually more... More
