“Very Fun Even in the Rain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

I've been wanting to do this on many trios to Cincy. We finally got to do it! The website said tours ran until 5 p.m.However, the time we wanted to ride was booked- 4:00. I was sad until she said there were more tours and that they judge the time they stop taking passengers on the flow of the day. I was just slightly disappointed by this because we couldn't get on the boat until 6:30. Had I known that we could've planned to do other things between time. Not to mention we were trying to avoid the rain. Didn't happen! But we still sailed and had a really nice time. Zach and our captain Pete were hilarious! You get quakers to engage in the obnoxiousness!! Love it. The history you learn of the city is great too. You don't get wet at all when you splash in the river. So don't worry about that. I do feel its pricey bur whatever. It's fun for folks of every age. So advice, buy online to see the schedule or call them to check ahead of time.

“Something Different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

This was definitely a different kind of tour. It was a lot of fun and there was a lot of history provided without feeling like you were at a museum. Be prepared to have everyone staring at you because you are on a bus (and a boat) and you have a duck quacker that you quack at everyone :) Great time for all, not just kids!

“Fun Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful ride on the Duck! Our driver and guide were very nice and full of information. The tour is about 45 minutes and travels on land and sea. This activity is for all ages. There were many little kids on the boat as well as adults. I recommend this to everyone who visits Newport.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Tour guides are great, interactive & just make for a very fun 45 min. The combo price with the aquarium is a great deal and make for a fun day. Book duck tour time first as they fill up quick.

“Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Captain Ken and Zach made the experience fun. They had lots of interesting facts. Especially for us since we weren't from the area. I had done the duck tour in Branson years ago. so I wanted to show my family the duck tour in Newport. My four year old couldn't believe that it could go in the water.
