Thought this was one of the best touristy things I could do. With the temperatures as high as 100 degrees, the water was welcome, the guide was easy to understand and crowd was relaxed and ready to have a good time. I'm not big on tourist attractions but would definitely recommend this one - it lasts a little over an... More

Great way to see Philadelphia by land and water. Fun tour guide kept us laughing. Pretty comfortable ride, exciting going into the water. Didn't have any kids with me this time but kids would love it!

Great way to see the sights and take a trip on the Delaware River. This is a nice way to start any trip. Ride the Duck and listen to the history and site locations. Then you can revisit the sites you want to see closer after the Duck ride. We actually saw things from the Duck that gave us ideas... More

We bought the Philadelphia Pass and this was included. Since it was one of the most expensive attractions $27 per adult we needed to do this. I enjoyed the Harbour Hopper at home so was excited for this. MY husband hated the one in Boston so he wasn't sure. This was really good. Our guide was strict - he told... More

I get that this tour is supposed to be a little goofy. We really enjoyed our Seattle duck tour, but this was different. This was heavy on corny jokes and skipped some really important things that we passed by.

This rating is so low, because we did the Big Bus Tour the day before (which is excellent) and had a direct comparison. We arrived at 9:30 for the first tour at 10, only to find that staff couldn't be bothered to arrive on time. We were told we would board at 9:45; sometime around 10:10 is when they started... More

The kids wanted the Duck, I really wanted the traditional. But this was good. Our guide was informative. Apparently he is a teacher during the school year. We got to see a lot. It was extremely hot however and this ride did not offer much break from the temps. Don't forget to buy the quacker. The kids will quack at... More

I was traveling solo and found myself wishing for the backstory on some of the historical sites that I was visiting. I heard good things about Nanna Duck's tour and had a fantastic time riding around learning a lot of history and fun facts. We splashed down in the Delaware and I enjoyed every minute! They have a military discount,... More

Spent 4 days in Philly with 2 children (9 and 2 1/2). They're still talking about it!! Silly, fun, and informative! We bought the combo tickets online right off their website for the Duck Tour and Adventure Aquarium. Saved a bunch for a family of 4 if you plan to do both, definitely consider. Great deal and experience!
