This is such a fun and even better, educational, ride around town. Being a local, I had no idea I would pick up so much history in a short amount of time. The captains of the Ducks are very entertaining!

Good times riding in a replica vehicle used by WWII where both my dad and my father in law served. Staff was fine and fun drive across the bridge acting like teenagers with my family and their families.
