We went to the Peabody as part of Memphis Best Tours. We watched the march of the ducks. This was a highlight of our trip. The Peabody is beautiful and has lots of shops and restaurants in it. The drinks there are fabulous.

This is certainly well worth seeing. The ducks come into the hotel fountain at 11 am stay there all day and March out again at 5 pm. They roll out steps and a red carpet so it is a very big production. Something a bit...More

Make sure you get there like 45 minutes before 11am, to get a good seat. It gets packed! There is seating and standing room where the fountain is and then seating and standing on balcony overlooking the fountain. I was on balcony as we got...More

I believe it is free. We didn't see them march, but walked right into the hotel lobby, saw them swimming in the fountain, spoke with the duck master, and took the elevator up to the duck palace, which was really just going... More

This question has been answered...the ducks arrive at 1100 every morning...and depart at 1700. Suggest you get to the hotel early...say 9-10...have a coffee and nudge into just outside the lifts. Be prepared to be jostled... More
