Owner description: Pittsburgh's ONLY Land and Water Tour!
Reviewed November 7, 2012

When we travel I enjoy seeing the sights on land and my husband loves any trip that involves being on the water. Introducing Just Ducky -- the best of both worlds for us! The land tour starts on the truck and winds through Pittsburgh's historic downtown area. When it approaches the river the truck becomes the duck . . . a boat trip providing awesome views of the city, stadiums, and more. The guides give an informative and entertaining commentary including little-known facts of local people and places. After awhile everyone on the trip was quacking on cue. An hour well spent. Tip: Most seats are under a canopy but a few are outside (in back of the truck). The canopied seats go to those first in line.

The hour-long tour begins and ends at Station Square. For information about rates, discounts, departure times and dates of operation (roughly April through October and weekends in November), go to their website: www.justduckytours.com.

We went on the tour with a group of people ranging in age from 6-66. For an hour, all had a pretty good time. I sat in the back and it was the best place to see everything. You could hear absolutely fine in the back so don't worry about that.

It was a little slow for a 6 year old - even though they did let kids drive the boat - that was the highlight of the trip for the kids and it came at the end just when patience was running low which was nice. I was surprised how much garbage is in the river - sad to see. Interesting fun facts about the city and worth going on if you want a quick overview of the city.

If you do bring kids, you will be sucked into buying a duck call - if you do buy it, buy it before you get on the duck boat as they can use it during the tour when they are told to quack. This did get it out of their system as it could drive parents crazy!

After taking a few duck tours in other cities, we knew this was a must during our recent trip to Pittsburgh. We find that if you take a tour upon arriving to the city, it helps you navagate as well as plan if there are places you would like to see more of or spend more time. The tour leaves from Station Square and lasts just over an hour. The old Duck boats are cool as you can enjoy land and sea. While a bit corny with the jokes, the tour is informative and a great way to see the city.

For $21 you get a great basic tour of the downtown area. You get a bit of history, a bit of information. Bypasses a lot. Jokes are corny/dry. But you are on a duck boat. What do you really expect?

This was a fun way to tour the city! The tour guides were funny with their duck jokes and full of information about Pittsburgh and the different sites. My parents who planned the tour for my fiance and I were afraid it would be too kid focused but it was not. Adults would also enjoy the sites, all four of us did! It's a lot of fun to go out on the river in an old military vehicle! We sat in the very front so we heard everything very well however since it wasn't too hot outside and we didn't need shade I think sitting in the very back without the roof/cover would have been better to see how tall the buildings are and you could see both sides of the street better for pictures.
