We booked the Holiday duck tour and did wonder when we boarded if we had done the right thing...being British and a tad on the reserved side! Have to say, it was awesome. We had the best night on the bus, singing, dancing and watching bemused people dance as we drove past. Highlight had to be seeing Seattle cops dancing about to the Christmas music. Don't forget a quacker and to do the Kerching! Thanks Ride theDucks!

This was so much fun! The driver was great - so many tidbits of Seattle history and trivia, jokes and loved his soundtrack! The best part was driving the bus right into the lake and seeing Seattle from a totally different perspective. I will definitely bring friends from out of town to this again!

We took the 40 minute Holiday Night Tour with Capt. Yukon one of the first nights they opened.....day after Thanksgiving! It really only goes around the downtown Westlake and Seattle Space Needle Center but Capt. Yukon kept it fun and interesting with his songs and games! He is very entertaining and the kids enjoyed it! The only thing that bugged me after awhile was when everyone started to blow their duck whistles every so often! LOL!

But, overall this tour was okay! They even provided blankets for the night tours because it gets pretty chilly at night! I thought that was cool!

I took my kids on this (6&8) and they loved the tour. There is something very exciting and slightly scary about driving one minute, boating the next. Well worth doing if you are visiting Seattle. The tour guide was fun and interesting and it was great to hear all about Seattle.

Isn't it fun to go from land to water and back again?!! Can't do that everyday! Kids think it's so neat! Thanks for visiting!

This is such a fun way to see and learn about Seattle! You laugh, dance, yell, quack and relax, all in 90 minutes! My husband and I and our two kids, ages 17 and 20 all enjoyed it so much! Captain Sid E. Slicker was a really fun tour guide. Floating around Lake Union was so relaxing and fun. We watched a sea plane take off while we were near it on the lake, and we saw the Sleepless in Seattle house. There is a wool blanket folded on the back of each seat for chilly days.
