My first Duck ride was in 1966. Over the years I have enjoyed returning to the old familiar route...and jokes. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to return so imagine my disappointment at finding a new (and quite boring) route. This new route misses the character and a lot of the history of the old tour. John, our driver, was nice enough but the tour itself, especially for the steep price, was not nearly as entertaining as in previous visits. I doubt that I will do this again.

This tour is half on land thru trees and half on the water. Would not recommend if you have been on other duck boats.

Fun trip in duck boat. Traveled through treed landscape with views of rock formations. Boated on river and lake: excellent view of dells. Our driver was humorous, friendly and knowledgeable. A very nice one hour excursion for about $32.

It seems like this is just one of those things you have do at least once when you come to Wisconsin Dells. It was a unique experience and a good way to see the natural beauty of the area. We enjoyed hearing about the history and how the area was formed but I did have a hard time hearing what was being said by our guide as the speakers weren't great and the boats are quite noisy. It was also a awkward when we stopped in the woods and had to listen to our guide tell us how he needed tips because he needs to make money. I've always come to these activities with the expectation to tip but I don't enjoy them stopping the tour to push it. Overall, it was a good time. I would definitely recommend purchasing your tickets online if you are planning on also doing one of the Dells boat tours or the jet boat tour as they offer a significant discount if you purchase two tours together.

Our driver was totally entertaining. Really felt we got out money's worth. The kids loved it. Also provided good historical/factual information.
