"Ride the Ducks"
August, 2016 NEW
We visited Ride the Ducks 14 years ago when our kids were young and really enoyed it. We were back again this year, and did the adventure again, with our grown kids. Have to say, I think we enjoyed it more this time. What a fun way to spend time with kids of all ages.

"Lots of fun"
August, 2016 NEW
We took the grandchildren to ride the ducks - it was a lot of fun. My husband and I have been multiple times a year for many years and this is the first time for the Ducks. We did it for the children but we ended up totally enjoying it ourselves. We even got to see parts of Branson we have never seen. Very good time ... We always get our tickets from Reserve Branson. Always wind up with great tickets
Tip: Great fun !!

"Excellent family fun"
August, 2016 NEW
My husband, my 7 yr old son and myself have been several times to Branson but have never been on ride the ducks. We totally enjoyed ourselves. Capt Smokey was a great captain and all the information that he shared with us about how the town had come about was so informative. He was very knowledgeable with his history and telling us about some of the shows to see was kind of nice. He even recommended a few places to go that were not expensive and would be a great family events. We really felt like we knew a little more about Branson when we were done. We enjoyed learning about Table Rock lake and the old military equipment. They did a great tribute to our military. We even enjoyed the little military museum up above there gift shop. So much fun for all ages and we would recommend it to everyone. Definitely enjoyed riding the ducks with Capt Smokey.

"Great time with the ducks"
July, 2016
My husband and I have been to Branson and have ridden the ducks before but this time our kids got to experience it with us. They had a great time and both got to drive the duck while on Table Rock lake. Our driver and captain were both great sources of knowledge and made the experience the best yet!!
Tip: If you dont like heat, try to get an earlier duck rather than one in the middle of the day

"Quacky Good Time"
July, 2016
We have been to Branson several times, but this was the first time to Ride the Ducks. We had our granddaughter with us and thought she would love it. We all enjoyed it. It was fun to see the sites and then go out on the lake. Our granddaughter loved that she got to drive the boat. Our Captain was amazing and definitely contributed to our experience.
Tip: If you have a child with you, make sure and get them a "quacker"

"More fun for adults"
July, 2016
this was our first time riding the ducks because our 3 year old has been begging to since she seen it on tv. it was not as fun for kids as we thought. we had a 10yr old, 7 yr old and almost 4 year old that did not think it was that fun and did not enjoy it as much as we did. It was hot as we went the end of June and a lot longer than we thought. all 3 kids were hot, sweaty, and exhausted after this excursion. it is more a tour of the town and shows old war equipment/ vehicles. I recommend going in cooler weather
Tip: Go in cooler weather

Loved it all! Loved our Captain!!!! He was very knowledgeable and you could tell he truly loved his job & his Country! This trip was by far, better than our first, 5 years ago. Great price & tour! Can't wait to go back!!!!
Will say the photo pricing was a touch overboard. We didn't get a photo this year due to being to high on the price per photo.

My wife and I have rode the Ducks several times and have never been disappointed. Captain Parrot is smart & funny and this last time we were able to take our 2 young grand daughters and live it through their eyes as well. Abigail even got to drive the Duck! It is a must-do adventure when you visit Branson.
Tip: Get ready for a really fun time and make sure to take a lot of pictures.

"Quack Quack!!"
June, 2016
We luv riding the ducks! We've rode twice and lucked out and got the same driver which is very entertaining! If they all act like him, you'll definitely have a great time! It's very windy as its an open air ride so I wouldn't recommend infants to ride. We took our 2 yr old and she loved it! She quacked her horn the whole way... and unfortunately is still quacking it at home! Its a must do experience in Branson!
Tip: Don't forget your Quackers that are for sale at the ticket booth!

"Fun, Fun, Fun from the moment we boarded"
November, 2015
My Family and I had always wanted to ride the Ducks, and I am so glad we had the chance
when we vacationed in Branson. It was a memorable experience from the moment we boarded the Duck. The Captain greeted us and we Quaked up at appropriate times during the tour. I recommend the Duck Tours very highly. We cannot wait to go back again. Splash down on the lake was the coolest thing I have ever experienced, and my kids got to drive th Duck on the lake and have their picture taken and get a Certificate. How Cool was that :) Definitely a 10 out of 10 experience.
Tip: Be sure to get your Duck quaker and have a great time :)

"Biggest waste of money"
August, 2015
I am honestly surprised by the positive reviews of this "boat cruise". My family and I spent $98 on this adventure and this was the biggest waste of our money on any vacation we have ever been on. The staff was very nice, but the actual tour was the biggest waste of time! The actual water part was only about 10 mins of the 1 hr tour. I would never recommend this tour to anyone with kids. Big waste of money.

"we love the ducks!!!"
February, 2015
My family of four really enjoyed this attraction. It's not only fun but educational. The driver was funny and even let the kids take the wheel while splashing around in table rock lake.at the end of the ride the kids can print off free captain license. My kids had a blast and keep asking when we can go back. Next time we visit we are going to ride the ducks at the landing.
Tip: You may get a little wet when you plunge into the lake. we got a little more wet because it started to poor down rain. The driver did his best to keep us dry.

"Family Fun in Branson!"
February, 2015
Captain Dan was a fantastic tour guide - funny, informative, and personable. My MIL said that this was her favorite part of our weeklong trip to Branson! She recommended it to practically everyone that we met. The colored quackers (besides the yellow ones that you can get free if you book your ticket online through their website) are an additional $4.

Otherwise, there was a great breeze (hold onto your hats) up to the mountain, through the forest preserve, with a great salute to our military folk, and splashing into the lake! Both of my kids got a chance to drive the Dukv (Duck) and loved the whole experience. We've done Ride the Ducks in Philly and Seattle but Branson has to be our favorite time!
Tip: Lake breeze - hold onto your hats!

We did the Table Rock tour which is near the Walmart on 76 Blvd. Our guide was Captain Hook and he did a great job of entertaining us throughout our tour. It was a perfect amount of time and a good amount of sites to see. The splash Down into the lake is of course the highlight. It was just my husband and myself and even without kids we had a lot of fun. I think it was worth the money paid. Plus when you buy tickets to this you get to show your tickets to other attractions and get discounts on those as well.

The ride lasted about an hour and a half and was a very interesting tour through town, up the hill, and out to the lake / Dam. The captain was very entertaining was quick to identify interesting items along the way. The ride included a drive into the lake for about 20 minutes. We have a real good time, a tad overpriced, but they give military discounts. It was nice to do once.

Never been on an amphibious machine. It was fun with a cool captain. Now, if it is a hot day - you will be hot. Sitting up front is hotter due to engine. Kids 5 and under on hot days not recommended. We had a 1.5 yr old and he cried the whole time. Tour of Branson was nice.
