What a great introduction to a new city! We rode the duck on our first night in Seattle. Captain Bjorn Toorun was highly entertaining. We were on a high energy trip through the city, quacking at the passers-by. Yes, we even got a few pedestrians to dance! Super fun time for my Girl Scout Troop!!

Drivers make it fun for kids with duck calls, music on the ride and playing games. The tour in the water was pretty but short and sweet. The ride through the town not that interesting. Don't advise going on a rare hot day like I did as the open air ride doesn't help the heat. It is close to the... More

We had a blast on our Ride the Ducks tour in Seattle! Our guide was awesome! This tour is just good, corny fun. If you want a serious & reserved tour, this isn't for you. And despite having all of this fun, we still learned a lot about Seattle and saw a lot of the city both on land and... More

Great time! The tour is a quick tour of Seattle but it is a laugh fest from start to stop. We had Capt Bob Frapples who was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. If you have kids along they will have a blast

You get a great sightseeing tour of Seattle on land and on the lake in the same WW2 vehicle. You get a good oral history of Seattle, but you also get a hysteric guide on steroids trying desperately to be funny, and failing big time. Lay off the 'showmanship' and concentrate on the basics.

This is a great way to see the city. The drivers are not only good drivers but very entertaining. Everyone should do a Duck tour at least once. Very fun going from the road to the water and back again.

This was such a fun way to see Seattle with a bit of humor and history thrown in. If you can request Captain Phlip Dover....I can guarantee you laughs, song and fun! I would do this tour again and again for the laughs. Thanks Capt. Phlip!

We decided last minute to do a tour even though it's so touristy. So lucky that our driver, Dan-o-might was a good historian as well as played really good music. And no prompting people to use their quackers (noise makers). He was fun & the ride through Elliott Bay was nice

As a native I know what's interesting and what the story is behind much of Seattle. Our Duck driver plain made up a bunch of nonsensical trivia that was simply untrue. The seats they cram you into will hurt your hiney in quick time so bring a stadium seat cushion for a better time. It would be a better experience... More

Had an absolute blast. Our captain with his many hats and pirate swords for everyone kept it entertaining. Informative history of the city and the dip in the water was fun. They book up fast so make your reservation ahead of time. We could not squeeze it in last year due they were booked full. I think the earlier tours... More
