“Ride the Ducks! We had a blast!”
Reviewed June 14, 2009

My husband and I took the Duck Tour on Thursday, May 21, 2009. We had the last tour of the day and had a great tour guide. We had lots of fun and learned a lot of interesting facts about the city. Lots of music, fun and we really enjoyed learning about the city in this way. If you're not familiar with the Duck Tours, they are part on land and then on the water. This is a great overview of Seattle in a fun setting! They start right near the Space Needle, easy and convenient location.

“Quack, Quack, This Was So Much Fun!”
Reviewed June 2, 2009

We did this tour this past Sun. during our visit to Seattle and had so much fun. While you wait to get on the bus there was a juggler who told funny jokes, corny but kind of entertaining. Our tour guide was halarious and the music that played was hysterical as he pointed out various areas of Seattle. The kids on the bus all had "quackers" which was great fun. We enjoyed being whisked around the city on the bus, waving to everyone as the loud music played and the kids "quacked."

This is not for everyone but I really loved this tour, the coolest part of the tour is when the bus turns into a boat and you go into Lake Union. The sun was shining and our weather was beautiful for some time out on the lake. I enjoyed seeing the Sleepless in Seattle boathouse and viewing the Space Needle and the city from the water made for some fantastic photo ops.

The tour lasts about 90 minutes and is such a fun way to see Seattle, bring your sense of humor and you're sure to have a great time on this tour! :)

“Great way to see Seattle”
Reviewed May 28, 2009

We have taken several Duck tours in other cities & this is one of the best! Our guide was very knowledgeable about his city and had a great sense of humor. He really involved the people in his tour! Everyone on board seemed to enjoy it.
A great way to experience the sights of Seattle!

“A must do in Seattle!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2009

This tour was the highlight of my trip to Seattle! My sis and I had sooo much fun! The tour guide was hilarious. The 90 min tour really gives you some insight into the history of seattle. It meets right across from the space needle so it's really easy to find. This tour is not cheesy at all and is fun for all ages. I highly reccomend this tour, it is worth every penny! (Cost $ 25) Book it online if going on a busy weekend cuz it does sell out.

“This is a blast”
Reviewed May 25, 2009

Well to start off my fiance and I decided to go to Seattle over Memorial Day Weekend, and we had an open itinerary. We are so glad that we did this. It is fun for all ages. Do not go on this if you don't like to laugh or don't like dry humor. The captain was great and he was funny everyone on the tour thoroughly enjoyed it. While being funny he was very informative about the tour and the "hot spots" of Seattle. Children, Young, Couple, Old, Whatever gotta do this. It is a blast. there is some adult humor, but children will not get it! They are very good at making this fun for everyone.
