This tour operator offers an unusual and memorable way to see D.C. by land and water, without changing vehicle. Passengers board authentic, fully restored 1942 Ducks, amphibious military personnel carriers. The land tour begins at Union Station and includes the National Mall , the monuments and the Smithsonian museums before the Duck splashes into the Potomac River. A scenic river cruise follows, with the 90-minute tour ending at Gravely Point beneath the flight path of landing planes at National Airport.
This tour got on my nerves and was quite unpleasant at times. The seats were tiny and uncomfortable. The water tour was the worst! The Potomac smelled and the water looked horrible. The "Captain" let the children on board take turns at steering the vehicle, one little boy kept making sharp turns in different directions, it was then that I started to think about a MUTINY. If that wasn't bad enough, we saw a dead deer floating in the water. The worst part was yet to come, the handing out of the duck calls, everyone blowing into these duck sounding whistles/kazoos was totally intolerable. The only way this tour could have worked for me was if they handed out large quantities of free liquor. This excursion is geared more for children or possibly adult hermits with low expectations and an abundance of cash.
We took my mother-in-law on the tour. It was fun and hit all the "must see" spots in DC. But it was also a very slow tour. Time was wasted, too, because of all the time getting in and out of the Potomac. It would have been nicer to have the guide talk more about historical information than just let us sail in the Potomac and marvel at the craft. I would recommend the tour though. It was a good value.
