We were in Philadelphia for 2 days for a concert. Had some time and thought a tour would help us get the most from our short time. My family ranged from 21 to 50-something women, two of us really enjoy history but we were all up for it since it had the added facet of humor. I'd honestly say don't... 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 trip. Something different, worth doing at least once.

I've been to Philly a couple of times but this time I was there with a few friends. We had a great time as the tour was fun, informative and just a great little activity. From the moment we inquired about pricing to the very end, we received excellent service. In fact, our tour guide Rose was so cute and... More

This was a good way to see the sites of the city. This vehicle goes on land and water. So you get to see Philadelphia by road and water. It goes in the Delaware River for a water view of the city. Commentary a bit corny but fun.

Our group from class needed a break at the end of the day and this was the ticket. 80 minute ride through town and on the Deleware river. Warm day and would have been better in shorts. Sunglass a must! Great group activity. Starts at Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

My wife and I wanted to see some of the highlights of Philadelphia so we chose the ducks. This was a very nice tour. And we had visitors from Germany, Canada, Australia, Ireland along with more local riders from Minnesota, Texas, and even Pennsylvania. We are from Michigan and this is our first time to Philly. We took the first... More

This was a last minute decision to give this a try and we'll worth it. The vehicle goes around the city and the tour guide provides plenty of information on the city which is good. It's exciting when you go into the river with water splashing but you don't really get wet from it. You can take some nice pics... More

We chose the duck tour to over an open top bus tour simply because of the shade it would offer and to see the city from a different perspective. turned out to be a lot of fun. we had a particularly good host whose name we've now forgotten!

What a great way to get around Philly. Very educational tour with lots of historical events. It ended with a great splash on the Delaware river. Worth every penny.
