Great value for the price! Guides info was incorrect or outdated, however about admission fee to the Barnes.
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.
The duck boat tour was terrific--fun, entertaining, and informative. My guests truly enjoyed the experience.
Our tour guide was Lauren and she was fantastic!!! She made the duck tour unforgettable.We and our grandchildren were entranced. Lauren was able to teach Philadelphia history in a way that made learning fun! It was one of the highlights of our trip.
The tour was very educational,with the areas the tour took, Society Hill, South Street etc and then into the Delaware river , very nice.
Great, fun way to see the City of Brotherly Love and get an introduction into Philadelphia's history which you should already know, of course! and places of interest. If you have to sit at the back - beware of the splash!
Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide made all the difference!
Our group loved this tour. Betsy Ross was our guide and she really added to the success of the whole experience. She was very knowledgeable about the tour info and it was very clear she enjoyed her job. This was the first time our whole family had been together in almost 8 years as we have 2 sons in the military, and the group shot of all of us including all of our grandchildren before we boarded the vehicle was the first family photo we'd had taken in almost 10 years! It was a great picture of all of us! That alone was worth the cost my husband and I had paid for us to all take this tour. Thank you, Ride the Ducks... and Betsy Ross!
Nana, daughter and grandchildren all enjoyed it. Lots of fun info, not the same old boring tour. Kids loved "cruising" into the river. Staff was courteous, informative and just plain fun!
Our tour guide was great. Made the trip a lot of fun and entertaining. Thanks.
We enjoyed this tour. It was very educational and fun. We would do it again and recommend it.
Our tour guide made the duck tour for us, he was very funny and had us all laughing all the way round.

We had the best escort, a typical South Philly guy with the best routine. I had my family from California, and it was one of the hottest days of the summer, but everyone was thrilled with the tour. What a great way to see and learn about Philly. Thanks so much. This was definitely a home run in my book - a five-star event.
The crew were a riot, they quaked me up. It is more fun in a group. The trip to the recycled military transport gives one pride in things American built.
I loved the duck tour. The guide was personable, knowledgeable and friendly. We loved Philadelphia - can't wait to go back!
"Snap" was an excellent guide. The city tour was extensive and informative. They did their best to make the limited time in the water enjoyable and informative.
Excellent way to see Philly - for the quick view - I think we would have enjoyed it better if we would have been able to pause at the sites to enjoy the view a little longer than just driving by - it was a fun ride into the Deleware River.
I absolutely recommend the Philadelphia Duck Tour. We had a wonderful time touring the city's historical sites as well as the trek into the water. The only problem i did have was with Viator. I purchased the tickets online and printed them out. On the ticket vouchers i printed was the instructions to call before arriving to confirm reservations...which I did. When i arrived there, I handed the tour people the voucher along with my confirmation number. They looked at me like I had twelve heads and proceeded to take 20 minutes to verify my reservation and print other tickets....all while taking other peoples money that didn't have reservations and letting them on the tour bus. I would definately take this tour again but buying the tickets early to avoid any aggravation only caused more aggravation. I would not use Viator again.
so much fun. we got a couple of strange looks when we got aboard without any children but that didn't bother us. you learn about the history and sights of philapelphia without having to walk and we even got some quackers to use and take home and a dip into the delaware river.
