“Cold but lots of fun!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Silly girls! We decided to take the Ride the Ducks tour on New Year's Day while in Seattle. They have blankets on board, thank goodness and we were dressed for it, but it was cold especially when riding on the faster roads.....albeit at 43 mph! I have to say that I am fascinated with the concept of amphibious vehicles and still cannot get over being able to go from riding on wheels to putting away on the water and back so easily. Our guide was hilarious and really seemed like he enjoyed not only entertaining the people on board but everyone along the way on the streets too! I have been to Seattle many times in my life but still managed to learn a lot about the city. Be ready to participate though and by doing that you will help keep warm. Even I had to laugh at his cheesy hat changes and music. The guide was really funny. So for a really interesting and fun way to see Seattle, try the Ride the Ducks!

“Latte :)”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Our guide had a constant change of hats and music that made the happy adventure stay the whole ride. Yelling "Latte" whenever we saw a Starbucks and learning about Nordstorm was very enjoyable. The pictures that I took made this ride even more memorable!!

“Great time!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Yes, it is cheesy but with the right people, this is a lot of fun! The tour guide/driver had my kind of humor - snarky but not mean - and we still would like to know who the guy is that waved to us through the blinds of the house we drove by on the way back. We are locals but our first time to take the tour and would definitely recommend to tourists.

“great fun!”

Cape. Philip Dover was fantastic. Not for passive watchers. Be ready to participate. Most fun on a tour in a long time. Banter was a combination of serious and silly and great tunes.

“Cheesy and fun”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

The fun and crazy personality of our tour guide really made the trip fun. Got the duck-load of tourists in laughter and song. Overall, corny and silly. If you are a fuddy duddy, stuck-in-the-mud kinda person with no sense of humor, don't do this and ruin it for the others. It's different and silly, but if you are a tourist, you want to do fun things, right?!?! Kids will love this....especially when you go from driving on the road to floating on the lake....cool!!
Still, I would have liked more history.
