"Not worth the time"
July, 2017
I was looking forward to this as a way to see Branson and the lake. We went to a mountain, the lake and then back. Smelling the fuel as you sit on the DUCK was horrible, the emcee, Captain Woody was obnoxious, and then we just went in the lake and did a circle and back out. I would not recommend this to anyone.

"Good for kids, Adults meh"

Knew it was going to be a long trip before we even got on the "Duck". They sell or give "duck calls" to kids, cute, but extremely annoying after about 10 minutes into the hour long ride. Then we get on the "Duck" the guide is telling us to move up, I passed on a row that had no leg room and my husband and I sat one row back, the guide looks at us and continues to say to move up, we ignored him after telling him we needed the leg room, even then your knees almost touch the seat in front of you, they have the rows so close in order to pack in as many peeps as possible even though they have plenty of "Ducks".
The remaining trip was spent with a kid kicking the seat, even after asking him to stop, then him "quacking" in my ear, to much trouble for the father to teach his kid manners. They drive around a rather desolate area with fairly interesting old military vehicles scattered around. Then stopping for a quick overview of the lake. One nice thing, they did allow each kid on the ride to "drive the Duck" which just drove around in a circle and not really touring the lake as we expected. Save your money if your not traveling with young kids and go see a show. We spent almost $60 to be miserable. I have 4 grandkids ages 11, 10, 9 and three and so I travel with little ones often (although mine do mind), so if I say this ride is annoying, then it IS annoying.

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
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

We took the tour with our grandsons (3 & 5), and had a great time. Our guide & water captain (Captain Wrong Way) has lots of stories to tell about every thing. When we entered the lake, all the children were allowed time to drive the Duck with the parents sitting at the front to take pictures. In all it was a very enjoyable 2 hours.

The trip takes about an hour and half in total, and trips leave every 30 minutes. The kids get their chance to pilot while in Table Rock Lake. There are silly jokes but the trip includes a mountain view of the lake before the "splash", and a salute to veterans. It's an open air vehicle so the speakers can be loud. But good fun for all.

We had a nice time on this tour. It was kinda pricey for what it was, but it was ok. I can say that I've done it, but I wouldn't need to do it again. And, if you are annoyed by duck whistles, do not go on this trip. They sell duck whistles to the kids, so they blow them nearly constantly on the trip.

We ride the Ducks almost every year at the request of our 6 and 8 year old grandchildren. This year was especially enjoyable due to the excellent tour guide who also was our on-water captain. He kept us smiling during the whole trip with his humor. A truly enjoyable 1.5 hour excursion. The children love getting to drive a short time while on the water.
