My wife and I have enjoyed our stay here in Seattle. Today we rode the Duck Tour of Seattle and what a way to close out our vacation. Capt. Marty Graw (no kidding) was and is an "Outstanding" tour guide. He took us through Seattle and shared a great deal about the city's history. The music selection he chose while... More

It was such good fun. I was by myself but quite comfortable singing along and waving to strangers. Yes, the jokes are corny but it's all so well intentioned and good natured. I hadn't expected it to be so popular so do yourself a favor and book online, or you may be disappointed.

A fun 90 minutes with a corny comedian driver. A quick view of Lake Union and some Seattle neighborhoods. We were a Duck full of adults, mostly older tourists, and I suspect the ride would be fun for families with kids.

My wife and I enjoyed the tour and thought it was a great way to see the city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Seattle and we learned a lot of fun facts. The duck boats are from the '40s, but we felt safe the entire ride - even in the water. The jokes were cheesey, but... More

Out-of-town friends and family were gathering to help us celebrate our anniversary. Since they planned on being in Seattle for a long weekend, we decided to have them see the sites. As a first activity of the weekend, I arranged for a Ride-The-Duck to pick them up at their hotel. We had enough guests, so that made it viable for... More

We've lived in the area and decided on a whim to take the tour. Our captain was Captain BeauDacious and we had an absolute BLAST. Couldn't believe that we haven't taken this tour before. We all enjoyed ourselves, adults and young alike, we HIGHLY recommend this tour for visitors and locals alike.

We had a fun female captain who used music, hats and props to add the fun. Unfortunately some of the city roads were closed on the day we did the tour, so their was a fair bit of the city we did not get to see, but the water part of the tour was fascinating. The sad thing is that... More

I've lived in the Greater Seattle area for almost 20 years. Colleagues from Manila were in town and I wanted to show them the key sites of Seattle in a fun way, and this was it. Captain Owen was a great guide pointing out the land marks while providing the historical back story. Things like the Pink Elephant Car Wash... More

If you want a bit of humorous levity along with great water views and some local history, this is the trip for you. Everyone we've taken on it loves it.

Maybe my rating is tainted because this was not my first trip to Seattle. Driver was excellent and his non-stop commentary very entertaining. Found the ride itself dull. Two young teens ahead of me should have saved their Mom money as all they did was take weird selfies to entertain each other. Did think that many of the Seattle landmarks... More
