My husband and I decided to tour Philly this way without children. It was very enjoyable. The tour was well laid out and covered the historic area and then went for a little dip in the Delaware river. Very pleasant

ok: u can see the colonial era buildings, get commentary from guide who tries to make it interesting. but....kinda cramped, deisel fumes, barely splashes into the Delaware for couple mins. (and no real ducks said one poor soul who thought it was a wildlife tour!!!) better: walk through the area to Camden ferry. take ferry for $7 ride .

My family and I (2 young kids, wife and myself) went to Philadelphia to experience the Ride the Ducks. The entire experience was great. While some may say it is a bit pricey,I am one of those who say if you enjoy it, it's worth it. Our driver/tour guide Tom was extraordinary, led by his obvious knowledge of his city, he entertains with a pretty good sense of humor, which kept us entertained. My children ages 8 and 4 loved it. A bit nervous when entering the water, but all smiles after entry into the river... 5 stars out of 5... Strongly recommend as an activity if you need something to do and will be in/near Philadelphia .

We would never have spent the money to do this, but we bought a five day Philly pass and the Duck Tour was one of the options we had. It was fun because of the funny comments of the drivers. It wasn't especially informative as the driver spent more time talking to the people on the street than talking about the sights. We were disappointed that we spent so little time in the water and didn't see anything significant while afloat. I'm glad we did it, but it is just a funny ride in a duck boat.

Great way to get an overview of the city in 70 minutes. Our guide, Norm was GREAT! Not only was he able to keep our group of 10, ranging in ages from 8- 70, entertained, he provided us with so many interesting facts and tidbits about the city.
