We took our 3 young children on the tour this summer. The drivers and tour guide were professional, entertaining and knowledgeable. They were also very welcoming and accommodating of our special needs child.

Took the tour which included Philly and the river and lasted about 90 mins. Really enthusiastic presenters who engaged the group throughout. Whilst we took in a lot of sights the bus was uncomfortable and the seats very close together which made it challenging in hot weather conditions. Not one for older tourists but considering everything I'm glad we did... More

Right, so we got this the wrong way round and did it on our last day but hopefully you will learn from our mistake. Having seen the ducks as we walked round Philly doing the touristic bit we thought 'maybe' and, with an evening to spare on our last day we went. No queues, Aiesha was quick doing the tickets,...

My husband had a business day so I took this opportunity to explore Philadelphia. Of course, a Duck ride was an obvious choice. Warren, the head Duck guide, was an absolute pleasure; he was delightful in every way. He possessed wit, charm, a killer sense of playfulness and genuinely enjoyed his connection with his group. I loved every minute. If... More

This is a great way to see Philly and get acclimated with the city. The tour guides are knowledgeable and offer a tongue-in-cheek presentation of the history of the city. Much of the quality of the door is dependent on the tour guide. I've been on here twice and had two very different experiences and went through different areas of... More

Our tour guide was Andrew, he was hilarious in a corny way at times but very entertaining. This duck tour was the best sightseeing tour we took in Philly, it was waaaay better than the big bus tour which we also did. There was a lot to see on land not much by sea but still cool to be able... More

Took duck tour recently in Philly. Great experience that was almost a disaster....We got our tickets and realized later they were not for the right time and we weren't going to make it back in time... Call their customer service and they were able to fix things for us - nice way to start things off. Our guide was very... More

We took one of the final tours of the day after the majority of the museums closed. The tour was almost full so beware of that when thinking about it, plan a bit ahead to avoid disappointment. Our guide and driver were absolutely insane, we spent nearly the entirety of the time laughing, singing or dancing. There is not much... More

My family (longtime part-time residents of Philadelphia) has been wanting to try this tour for a long time and visiting friends provided the opportunity. Yes, it was a bit spendy for a 90 minute activity but I'd still recommend it, especially to folks with kids. FYI: the tour company sells whistles that make duck calls-beloved by the kids-annoying to many... More

The tour see a lot of the major sites in Philly, do it when you first arrive. Free with the Philadelphia Pass. Would have been better, but our guide was kind of lame. The other Duck that left at the same time seemed a lot more fun.
