“great fun intro to Seattle”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

A very upbeat fun way to see more of Seattle than you would on your own. The driver was entertaining and informative. Our group ranged in age from 10 to 67 and we all enjoyed it and learned something as well

“Tours are done in World War II amphibian vehicles.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We did the Ride the Ducks of Seattle tour while vacationing.
Tours are done in World War II amphibian vehicles.
Taking about 90 minutes you get to see famous places in Seattle and a ride boating around the waterfront.
It was a nice way to spend our first day getting to know what and where things were.
It was very informative and fun.

“Ever go from land to water in a vehicle without sinking?”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you haven't ever been on a duck tour, you have to do it. The Seattle trip is very inclusive and highly recommended. The first trip I took to Seattle several years ago, we had an AWESOME duck tour guide, apparently she doesn't work there anymore but our guide this time was still pretty good. We didn't have a very outgoing interactive group, even though our guide was cracking jokes as often and best as he could, he didn't have the crowd for it, only the 2 of us. So here is my suggestion, if you are afraid to step out of your shell a bit and have fun then this tour is not you. The tour is excellent and takes an hour and a half. You go start at the space needle which is quite convenient for a full seattle day but the parking is EXTREMELY expensive right in that area. The guides point out all the sights along the way to the water through streets similar to san fransisco, very hilly....and then pass all of the attractions near pikes market. Continuing on you cross over the water first and see where you will end up in the water and then magically...poof! You go from land to water and are now watching house boats, kayakers, stand up paddle boarders, birds and sea planes instead of busy traffic. Lots of fun and you get to see a lot of Seattle and get some good ideas of places on your trip to visit.

“Great Seattle Tour”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is a great tour to go on when visiting Seattle. Not only are the drivers or "captains" as they like to call themselves, great funny and charismatic. It's great to be able to dirve around down town and then plunge into Union Lake without moving from your seat. The water part of this tour was great. Wonderful scenery and appreciation for the housboat neighborhood in Seattle!

“Best and Fastest way to know Seattle”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

If I'd tried to visit the famous places in Seattle by myself, it would take much more time and money. Ride the duck tour is the best and fastest way to enjoy Seattle. It is also unique to experience the amphibious car(ship) with energetic, humorous and experienced captian. I'd like to recommend to anybody who has a plan to visit Seattle.
