Seattle Duck Tours

Quack!  That's right, I went on a Duck Tour during my recent visit to Seattle.  It was a ton of fun!  Very interactive and informative.  I've been talking about wanting to go on one for a little over a year now and I was not disappointed.

For those of you who have never experienced the joys of riding on a duck, they are an amphibious vehicle used in World War II and were built into the 1960's, and now they have been refurbished for touring around several major cities.  Being that they are amphibious, our tour showed attractions throughout Seattle and then from the views of Lake Union.

The tour was a great overview of all the Seattle has to offer: the Space Needle, downtown history and shopping, as well as, Lake Union and Fremont.  The guide of out tour/captain of the Duck, had a balance of humor and information about the sites.  We even did the chicken dance during the tour! :)

Overall, the Seattle Duck Tour was a blast!  It gave a ton of information on the city and had goofy jokes and music to keep you entertained the whole time that we were on the DUCK!  It's something that I'd definitely do again!  :)

Obviously, I couldn't resist the chance to give my biggest smile in front of the duck! :)
