Our tour director was more than amusing, he was hilarious with his subtle changes of hat and his not-so-subtle comments to people on the street we were passing. It was a lot of fun!

We were fortunate to be in Seattle with unseasonably warm and sunny weather. The Duck Boat tour far exceeded my expectations. Don't miss it!

We saw this tour when we were visiting the Space Needle. Our driver was great fun, the music and singing gave the tour added atmosphere, he even got some people we passed by to start dancing on the side walk to our music. The duck entered Union Lake after showing us many sites of Seattle, we passed house boats as we entered the lake we had approximately half and hour on the lake, trip lasted 1 1/2 hours. I feel this would be great fun with children.

When we arrived in the parking lot, we observed a duck boat pulling in. The passengers were waving various items about, and YMCA was blaring from the radio. The driver got up front his seat and he was dancing down the aisle. I immediately thought, this is *not* something I want to do. However, I was with two friends, and there was no turning back. Fast forward to our boat pulling into the lot, and I was waving a rubber duck and screaming, YMCA! It was a blast, and this is coming from somebody who hates cheesy, touristy, crap. It is a must do, especially on your first day in Seattle. The 90 minutes allows you to see all of the sights, and the driver points out the must-sees throughout the city. Not only does the tour inform you of everything Seattle, but it helps to plan out the rest of your visit. Please do this! It is well worth the 30ish dollars.
