Closed down after fatal accident. Seemed like decent operation but could not recover after accident. Big bus is way to see city now.

Got kids? You gotta tour Philly with The Ducks! Totally worth the $ spent to get a guided tour of Philly on both streets and water... save your sanity, your feet and the day- just go ride the Ducks!

The tour around Philadelphia was quick and not enough spent at buildings of interest and whilst I appreciate the law with regard to being on the river it was a little disappointing plus those damm duck quackers which at time spoiled the tour guides commentary.

We were scheduled for the tour on 2 Oct. I did this with my daughter in 2015 but wanted to do with my wife. We learned about the end of the tour service in the newspaper.

We looked forward to riding the ducks to be able to see the sights from the river, unfortunately, the river ride was a little underwhelming. The tour of the city was pleasant except for the fact that the tour guide had passed out the duck...More

We rode the Duck with our young children and what a memory to see their faces as we drove into the river! :-D Philly Ducks is a very entertaining, educational, exciting adventure for all ages. We all LOVED it!

Relaxing, informative, and entertaining trip around the historic streets of town and on the Delaware River. Originally constructed during WWII, duck boats can travel on land and sea. Kids will enjoy the corny jokes and singing, while adults can sit back and enjoy the unique...More
