A good opportunity to get an overview of the city, particularly the Floating Mosque which is on the city outskirts. The Ducks are rather old (ex US Gov') but it floats. Certainly worth a go.

Experienced Duck Tour for the first time during my casual visit to Malacca today. It will be a good experience esc for the first timers.. Although the 'Duck' didn't take us around the whole Malacca and the ride on the land was limited but it was indeed interesting when the 'Duck' entered the sea from land... The 'Floating Mosque' on...

We were looking forward to cruising along the river and a duck tour seemed the ideal opportunity. In the event the tour didn't even take us on the river, favouring instead some of the dirtier sides of the wonderful city of Melaka. The duck itself was clearly struggling, scarcely getting above 10mph on the road and audibly struggling. The only... More

Nothing much special as didn't pass through any place of interest at all. Whole trip just very bored. Not worth going.

What a terrible tour! Was very warm. Very dirty and flirty on the duck truck. Absolutely not worth 45 ringget! The worst of all was the terrible noise from the engine, making it impossible to hear the recorded presentation. At the end of the 45 minutes, I had a terrible headache due to the noise and heat and children grouchy... More

We paid 60.00 for 2 (an adult n a kid) to travel on the road first, then to the sea. Along the way could see part of melaka street. This amphibious vehicle is the thrill of the day. The trip takes about 40 mins on the road n sea.

A nice way to get a short tour (45mins). The tour starts on land then heads to the Straits of Melaka (sea) for a short boat ride...all in the same vehicle! We got a bit unlucky as we had a bunch of children from china onboard...and were tooo noisy. It also started to rain so didn't get to enjoy the... More

The duck tour was disappointing! I was quite excited in the beginning but the moment the boat went into the sea, it just make a round and come back to shore. We could not even see anything from the sea, just one mosque is all we have for the view. Tickets are quite expensive too! Totally NOT WORTH IT!

Nothing that we can watch other than just sitting at the back. We cant choose our own seat . Already given by their staffs. And it is a boring tour in Malacca.
