It was enjoyable to see Seattle and learn about it. The amphibious bus is a hoot, and the guides are funny. But they give kids duck whistles, which combined with the P.A. system makes things loud.

This is a very silly tour that is thoroughly enjoyable for anyone willing to let their freak flag fly! Kids of all ages will love the goofy "captain" as he navigates the streets of Seattle and nearby Union lake. I had so much fun, I forgot to take photos. The only downside to the experience is the seats are rather... More

Took the tour mainly because we wanted to experience the combination of driving through the streets and across union lake. The tour is fun and gives you some nice information about Seattle and many interesting views (e.g. they show you the famous house of sleepless in Seattle). One heads up: The driver is being kept busy by changing his "outfit"... More

Tour was disappointing. Not enough of sites. Driver was trying very hard to make everyone enjoy the trip but wish we had learned more.

Fun tour that provides a great overview of the city of Seattle and its layout (I have to admit I was still confused for another half day but it did help!) Energetic tour guides make the trip enjoyable - we went with another couple and surprisingly there were no kids on our tour, but it would be a great trip... More

We were recommended this attraction as a way to see the City. Our driver was an obnoxious, frustrated, stand-up comic who played annoying music and wanted us to participate in singing "YMCA." He repeated himself countless times and was extremely irritating to endure. I wanted to see the city, not return to the 2nd grade. That said, the tour itself... More

Very entertaining right from the moment you step on the 'duck'. We started at the Westlake centre so went to the lake first. The 'ducks' are fairly old and theres not a lot of room but a bit of a novelty. They show you the key sights of the city but its not a boring history tour theres a bit... More

Our family enjoyed this city tour. Despite the slap stick comedy provided by our driver we did learn quite a bit about the city and saw lots of sights.
