Philadelphia Duck Tour

Ride the Ducks of Philadelphia

Philadelphia’s Duck Central is located in the heart of Independence Mall, across the street from the Liberty Bell. Hop on board an authentic replica of the DUKW, the kind that was used in WWI to transport troops and supplies from water to land and back again.

Begin this Philadelphia Duck Tour by driving through the Old City District, the most historic square mile in America, with 100 notable landmarks including Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Carpenter’s Hall, Chinatown, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rocky statue and much more. Learn about each attraction as well as tales about famous Philadelphians and the city’s role in movies, music, and sports.

Roll by the Rodin Museum and Philadelphia Museum of Art in the famous Museum District before plunging into the Delaware River for panoramic views of Philadelphia’s skyline, the USS Olympia, Battleship New Jersey, Penn’s Landing and more.

Along the way, feel free to make some noise with the included Wacky Quacker, a kind of whistle that sounds like a duck.

Dancin' Fred was a very good tour guide and the drivers were very professional. However, the ride on the Delaware was rather lame - in the water and out, tell us about a few apartments. Why not talk about the US New Jersey and the other ships more.

Was unable to take the Sunday tour as booked due to a communication breakdown between Viator and the Ducks but the Ducks obligingly provided a ticket for the next day. The tour was brilliant, with the ride on the Delaware a major highlight. Highly recommend this tour.
