Overall it was a little pricey for the amount of time we got, but was a good little fast trip through Cincinnati. I enjoyed learning history that I did not already know, and even as a local I learned something new. The guide was fun and my kids loved the quackers.

What a great adventure. Ride through historical Newport, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio. Drive into the Ohio River from the ramp in Cincinnati and listen to some historical and interesting facts of how Cincinnati, Covington and Newport played important parts in the Civil War. Fun for all ages.

This is such a fun and even better, educational, ride around town. Being a local, I had no idea I would pick up so much history in a short amount of time. The captains of the Ducks are very entertaining!

We have done this 2 times and had a different driver each time. Drivers are very informative of the area and also at keeping the kids interested. Although I believe some people got a little wet we didnt and big times was different locations. It was really neat to be driving on land and the drive right into the river... More

We were there the first day of the season. This was the best way we found to get any Cincinnati history since there didn't seem to be a city tour most places have. So glad we decided to Duck ride, it was so much fun and also thanks to our wonderful guide we learned a little of the cities' history.

Good times riding in a replica vehicle used by WWII where both my dad and my father in law served. Staff was fine and fun drive across the bridge acting like teenagers with my family and their families.

The Good: unique, interesting, draws attention, family friendly The Bad: weather dependent, pricey This is a very cool way to see the riverfront as well as a bit of downtown Cincy. We had good weather and an entertaining driver so our experience was good. The vehicle was well maintained. The Road Word: a good way to spend a few hours... More
