“Brrrrr!!!! Bring your own blanket!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2010

So any open vehicle attraction in Seattle any other time than summer is going to be cold... but this was freezing! I went mid day in April. It's a fun tour, cruising down Pike and 5th in a bus/boat with a jolly tour guide and the music pumping. Learned alot about Seattle's downtown history. The water portion was enjoyable and it was neat to see the skyline from the waterside view. BRING YOUR OWN BLANKETS! This would have saved the day!

“Funny Ride the Ducks of Seattle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2010

Oiur group of 3 had 2 days in Seattle and picked a few tours to go on. From all the other reviews on TA, I choose along with my SIL to go on the Duck Tour. We choose the 10AM tour and our luck it had to be rainy (I guess it is Seattle). The driver was hilarious and pointed out places of interest. The duck was recently reconditioned and was in great shape. They even provided blankets. Duck also had roll up windows that were clear to see out of. It was a little cheesy, but we enjoyed it. If you have a chance, go!

“A great fun way to see the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2010

It's silly, it's cheesy, it's entertaining & fun--and a great way to see Seattle. You hit all the high points, hear some local folklore, get a little history & even laugh. Great for families--no aching feet & and an idea of where you might want to head back too, It's ideal in the sun, but a good choice in -on a wet/cold day too --just bundle up!

I've taken this tour as a work outing, with my nephew and once just for fun with a few friends! Good Stuff!

“Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2010

It was very entertaining and fun... dress warm if its a cold day as its even colder on Lake Union which you will end up on. Fun way to spend and hour and half to use a tourist attraction to locate other tourist attractions.
