This is truly fun. I took my parents and they absolutely loved it. With this tour you get the best of both worlds, a water tour and a land tour, complete with San Francisco Chinatown, the Financial District and AT&T Park complete with McCovey...continued

This was a fun entertaining tour for our family made of 3 adults and two Tweens. Skye, the driver was very entertaining. They let the kids drive the duck on the water which was entertaining. Only part that was slow, was the last 30 minutes...continued

This was a very pleasant trip. The representative was very friendly and helpful, and the captain has a good sense of humor.

The only missing star is that the "meeting" address on this website is wrong location. I called Ride the Ducks 20...continued

This was so much fun and sucha deal!! We boarded from Union Square which was great because my hotel was only 3 blocks away. Much easier to get to than Fisherman's Wharf. There were only 8 people total on the tour so it was more personable and we...continued

Van, our tour guide, was funny and informative. Music and jokes were corny but fun. All the kids and teens in the tour were given a chance to drive the duck in the bay. Our 7 year old didn't understand some of the jokes and historical facts...continued

We had a good time. It was fun and wacky. We learned some facts about San Francisco that we didn't know before. The ride in the bay was much longer than we expected which was 35 to 40 minutes. All in all I would definitely do it again with my...continued

We had a really good time, our guide seemed to really enjoy his job, and made the experience enjoyable. It really is an experience when this vehicle that you are riding in sails right into the water, and on the boat ride we saw a sea lion! Very cool.

We live in San Francisco, but wanted to take this tour because we see them pass by our condo all the time. Our kids absolutely loved the tour (especially our soon-to-be 5 year old). I enjoyed it because the kids liked it so much. Great for...continued

We loved the trip. My youngest son of 2 years old, enjoyed the entire trip. And my oldest, who is 6, was amazed by the trip. We are planning another trip soon.

We met the Duck across the street from Macy's in Union Square. There were vendors selling double-decker bus tours who said they knew nothing about the Duck tours, but we soon saw yellow Duck umbrellas and soon the Duck arrived! My wife and I...continued

We took our Granddaughter for her birthday and we (Grandma, Grandpa, and granddaughter) all loved this trip. Our granddaughter got to steer the "Duck" on the Bay, and she was thrilled. Although we have lived in the Bay area for over 30 years,...continued

We went on the tour on June 29, 2010 at 10AM. The bus driver was 30 minutes late and with a toddler running around it was not pleasant. We were then rushed onto the bus without being checked in or receiving the duck whistles. The whole experience...continued

We were a party of 9-all ages and all had a great time! The highlight for me was driving the Duck and making a U turn in McCovey Cove! Since I haven't driven a car for 6 years-this was great! Great for out of towners or locals!

Wonderful hour and a half for a family with kids! The kids (and adults if you wish) get to take turns steering the boat in the bay. So fun for them! Views are good on the Bay but it would be so much better if it was on the other side of the Bay...continued
