Ok this is just a fun adventure. You learn all about the city, rock out to fun music, and it keeps the teens engaged. Loved this!

Great fun. Fun way to see the city from both the street and the water. Our tour guide was funny and entertaining. Judging by the full boats we saw all the time, the tour is popular. It's good fun for the entire family and the price is reasonable.

Everyone told us to ride the Ducks - and we thoroughly enjoyed the irreverent 90 minute tour of town and boat ride. I guess we're just kids at heart!

We lucked out and got a good tour guide and it made a difference. We went on the boston tour and this one is better because of the guide. He had great silly jokes and the music was awesome. Pick a rainy day and go as I think it would be more fun. I learned a lot about Seattle.

Got this tour to see the Seattle + wanted to experience land and water tour for the first time in my life. Took 5pm tour. Got into traffic. While standing in that traffic our guide did not even bother to entertain us, no funny stories, facts or even music. So, most of the tour time we've been stack in traffic... More

After 15 years of visiting Seattle every summer we decided to do this attraction for the first time with our kids. We have been missing out this WHOLE time. My husbands exact words was that "we should have done this the first time we came". Not only do you get to see the city and skyline but the driver(s) are... More

While I like a boisterous tour now and then, this one was a bit over the top. Maybe if the music was blaring so loudly you couldn't talk to the person next to you or hear the driver? The tour guide said they were asked to keep it quieter as they drove through different areas of Seattle. I wonder why...... More

Ride the ducks is a definite fun way to begin your trip inside Seattle. We booked ahead online and were guaranteed a spot at the time we wanted. Our driver was extremely animated and change his hat throughout the tour. We all got involved with blowing on our duck quackers. The most fun was when we dipped into lake union... More

This tour is a great, fun way to see some of the major sites of Seattle and have a unique experience doing it. Captain Rob was a great guide, who was knowledgeable about Seattle and it's history as well as having a great sense of humor. Other reviews have noted issues with the fumes or that it may not be...

We were meeting an out of town relative who was attending a conference in Seattle. My niece recommended The Duck as a fun activity. To be honest, I thought it looked campy, but decided to try it. We had a blast! Our guide took us to many places around Seattle that I've never been. He was very funny and entertaining,... More
