Fun and Informative!

Was a lot of fun, although it was pretty pricey and doesn't include the cost of parking. Great way to tour the lake area.

Awesome tour that operates rain or shine. Doesn't operate if there is a thunderstorm. Great for kids specially when the bus gets into the water. Great information about the sites in Austin!

We had a Groupon. It was very expired but they took it like it wasn't. That is a stand up business. The tour itself is good. The highlight is going into the water. I did learn a few things on the tour even though I am a life long Austinite. Our tour guide was friendly. He had his dog on... More

Our family of seniors and hipsters took this tour yesterday afternoon. It was a really good way to see the city. Our driver, I think that his name was Bob - a former third grade teacher - was terrific with the little kids on the bus as well as knowledgeable on the history and culture of Texas and Austin in...

At first we had a good impression because they found us a spot despite not having reservations. The driver of the bus came and told us where his bus was parked - and that as soon as we paid we should come to his bus. He was nearly full, but was going to wait for us. We quickly paid and... More

Captain Bob was excellent in providing a great historical overview of Austin. He was funny, made everyone feel welcomed, and it was a pleasure to go on this tour. I definitely recommend going on the Duck Adventures in Austin and will come again the next time I am in Austin.

I booked the tour twice, once the other day and once last week and both times were cancelled due to low attendance. Please call ahead to verify before making plans and booking online. I would had not paid for parking downtown and also would had planned my days itinerary differently. The employee at the visitors center did try to book... More
