On board the duck boat, knowledgeable guides regale sightseers with facts and stories about local sights and landmarks, pointing out the State Capitol, detailing the history of Sixth Street, and addressing all of the parking meters by their first name. After their land trek, the vehicles pack in their wheels and launch off the shores of Lake Austin for an aquatic tour of the lush, scenic lakeside.

We did this tour because we had a lot of time since SXSW was cancelled for this year. It was a fun experience and the bus/boat driver did a great job in giving interesting and funny informations.
A "ducky" good time. I highly recommend this trip. A little Texas state history, a little trivia, a little Texas movie star info & a whole lot of humor & fun. A great family outing. How awesome to start on land then into the lake all in the same vehicle.
The tour guide explained us a lot of things of Austin
Great trip and knowledgeable CAPTAIN !!!
Our guide Darrel was very informative and also a part time comedian. The weather was perfect and we had a great time.
Fun short ride. Definitely worth it
good fun and a witty driver. really enjoyed it.
It was a fun time enjoyed it very much
Great trip overall, but would have preferred if kids not allowed to drive boat due to choppy waters. Driver was a blast - love his corny jokes!
Had great time on the Austin duck boat!
We really enjoyed the Duck Boat ride and our driver was fun and knowledgeable. Would reccomend this attraction
Darrel was great!
The tour guide was awesome! I think His name was Dan. (He plays the base guitar)
Had a lot of fun with family !! The ride, the commentary, the jokes, the weather, the locations, the views, the water .. Enjoyed the 75 minute ride, all along !! Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Austin, especially first timers !!
Fun and informative driver. Lake Austin was very cool.
Great guide real fun
Was cold weather but the guide was very nice and the tour it’s worth.
The driver allowed steer the wheel for some passengers and even kids.
Very nice ride
The captain was superb and kept us fully involved
Fantastic and great experience
The landing in the lake was cool but too much quacking. And not long enough. Wish we saw more than the area we saw
Captain Darrell provided a nice mix of area information and fun facts during the ride. It was the first time back on the lake/river since all the rain. Compares favorably to similar rides in Branson and Boston.
Fun and very educational
My husband and I thought the Duck Adventure was a blast. I got to drive the boat and sing my special birthday song.
Excellent an awesome
I was not pleased with the tour. Not much was told about a very historic city. The tour lasted only 1 hour and 10 minutes. The only redeeming part of the tour was the “boat” ride on the lake. I’d never do this tour again.
Good time short but fun
funny and interstibg tour through tge city....
Tour guide was very good
Captain Bob was so entertaining and knowledgeable! Even my husband participated and had a good time! Would definitely recommend 😊
GreAt way to see abit of Austin. Lake trip was good fun.
A great way to see a bit of downtown and Lake Travis.
The tour guide was full of information and fun facts.
Enjoyable and informative. Highly recommended.

Captain Darrell was great. Location was convenient and easy to locate. Will definitely do again on a return trip.
Great fun and a great way to get a feel for the city of Austin if you don't have time to do everything. Guide was enjoyable and knowledgeable too.
Very enjoyable Driver was fantastic
I enjoyed the tour emensly.
Took the trip right after arriving in Austin. Received knowledge concerning the city and its attractions, plus a little cruise on the water.
Interesting, enjoyed the history. 5 Stars!
Personable host in Bob. Thanks for the insight into Austin history. I would highly recommend
Fun! Highly recommend!
We've been on a duck tour in Memphis, TN, and this one was just as much fun. Captain Bob was quick-witted and entertaining. He seemed to be well-versed in the City of Austin, and he managed not to run over anyone else on the road. Or on the lake/river. He was good at getting everyone to join in. We would recommend the tour to other people.
After the 100th time the driver had the kids blow their horns at people walking on the street I wanted off. That was overdoing it
We had a great time with our little ones on the Duck Tours today with Cap Bob! He was funny & engaging.
Our driver, Captain was a lot of fun. Enjoyed this immensely
We had a great time with tour guide Bob. He was very knowledgeable and funny.
Our host was great! Enthusiastic and fun!
Gives Austin History in a fun way! Our tour guide, Erick was great...
Our captain was very energetic and fun! A nice relaxing, silly tour of the city. :) would definitely suggest the tour!!!
The driver was funny, knew what to shows us and tell us about the city.... it was a very fun ride... I loved it!
My 3 year old and my wife was impressed. Just make sure that you should still check in and get the tickets from the booth even if you got the tickets online.
It was amazing tour especially when we splashed into the lake.
Very interesting tour that kept us engaged in the tour! The bus to boat part was amazing! Great time was had by all!
Our tour guide was great. Got to see a lot of interesting Austin sights.
We had a great time seeing Austin and learning some of her fun facts! The best part was going from land to water!! Excellent tour guide!!
The tour was fun and the guide was really funny I'd do it agin
Fun overview stories of Austin's history, lake time loud and short.
Enjoyed the whole experience, should try it.
All the family enjoyed the experience! We had fun and we learned a lot from Austin! Thanks
This was a fun, lighthearted, yet informative way to tour the sites in Austin.
Que es muy interesante y que el guia con sus conocimientos de la ciudad hace que el Tour sea experiencia inolvidable
Really enjoyed it.
Good driver easy to understand. Some other ducks we were on gave kids a chance to be a captain and pretend to drive
It's very fun
Darrel did an outstanding of narrating and driving. He made the trip!!
Could got rid of the quackers, headache after
Driver Bob was friendly and very welcoming. Bob kept us entertained with anecdotes that were really interesting even the historical notes had some spice - the woman taking on officials with a canon! Going into the lake was a thrill. Really I think this trip is worth more than the price - I've spent more on a dinner that was only ok. Don't hesitate - get a reservation on the duck.
Duck your was fun and enlightening. Great way to see the city especially during SXSW!! Thank you. Very kid friendly!!
It was an awesome experience. I will highly recommend it to others!
Our driver was funny and informative. He kept us entertained until the very last minute. I highly recommend this tour!!
Good Austin history!
We went on the tour on a rainy Saturday afternoon and still had a blast! It is a great way to spend a couple of hours with the family and learn a little Austin history. Just be sure to arrive 15 minutes early or, THEY WILL LEAVE YOU!!! We learned this the hard way and missed the 2:00 tour and ended up on the 4:00 instead.
We loved it
It was really great. It was my first time in Austin and this ride showed me a little bit of everything. I was able to plan other activities as I saw what there was to do. Captain Bob was very entertaining.
It was great !!!
Had a great time, learned a lot I would do it agin
Our 93-year-old mother and her friend loved it!
Funny and informative. The captain is à réaliser pro.
Even with the rainy weather we had a fun time
Took the Christmas Carol trip through the city and into Lake Austin.. the weather become cold but the trip was fun!
Likes the water portion
Darryll I believe was the captains name. He was awesome. made the trip very interesting and enjoyable. I will do it again the next time I have visitors here in Austin.
The driver very optimistic and cheerful
