We very much enjoyed our Chattanooga DUKW (Duck) tour. Captain Rob was very informative regarding Chattanooga history as well as interesting, jovial and a good all around captain. My family definitely considers this a winning tour.

We were a very small tour, but had so much fun. Our guide was super informative and we learned all about the history of the area and the Tennessee River. The tour was on time and definitely worth the money. We would do it again.

I took my class of 4th graders and their parents, and it's a toss up to say which group enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults! Captain Barry knows ALL about Chattanooga---the facts, the history, the amusing, little-known stories---and he will tell you them...More

It last close to an hour. Most of the visit is on the water with a short shuttle from their 'base' to the launch site. One suggestion . . .make sure you charge your devices to capture everything. Hope you enjoy!
