“Captain Larry and Rene”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I had been on one other 'Duck' tour, down in Seattle, and thought it was very nice.
After taking this Ketchikan 'Duck' tour during our Alaskan cruise, the realization of how one of these trips was supposed to be conducted was realized!
Captain Larry was very informative when I asked about different aspects of the 'Duck'. Having been a professional driver for over 40 years I am interested in the many different vehicles that are out there, and he was more than happy to share his knowledge and made MY experience that much more memorable. Plus the fact that he did an outstanding job of driving was a definite plus!

But it was Rene who really was the star of the show, with her very enjoyable delivery of the information of Ketchikan and it's many points of interest. She set the bar very high, in my opinion, for all future tour guides. I don't know how many times a season she gives the tour, but it was very fresh and spontaneous, and the time we spent with her made the Ketchikan 'Duck' Tour one of the highlights of our cruise to "sunny" Alaska!

A short personal note: My cruise mate and I were to meet at the appropriate boarding area, but one of us got the signals crossed. Larry, Rene, and the "boss" were all very patient and understanding and made it work even thought we had a delay in the scheduled departure time.

I highly recommend this activity while visiting Ketchikan.

Very nice tour. Had an excellent guide. Lots of information with local insight. And the driver added other information. Bruce and Lee were a great team.

“Ketchikan duck tour”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

I went with a group of my friends and we all enjoyed this tour and what made it special are the driver and the narrator; Captain Aerec and Anthony. They are both very funny. They incorporated funny jokes to what seems to be an ordinary sights in the city. So the tour became interesting and entertaining.They gave a good overview of the city and its history.No boring times here.I highly recommend this tour when you visit Ketchikan, well worth your time and money.

“What a bunch of quackers - in a good way!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

The only reason that I have left 4-stars is that I wish the tour was longer! I would have gladly paid more money to extend this tour. I give the guys, Bruce and Lee, 5-stars! The tour is worth the money and provides a valuable overview of the city. I would advise taking the tour early in the day and then you have the rest of the day to explore places pointed out on the tour. I hope these guys get a raise! They deserve it for the great quality of service they are providing to their customers!

These two were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. What a great asset to Duck! The narrative was so informative yet comical. I would definitely take this tour again.
