The duck ride was great. Our Captain was Landon and he provided us with all the facts about Hot Springs as well as a lot of humor. You can tell that he really likes his job. We did the combo ticket and it was WELL WORTH the extra fee. WILL DO AGAIN!
if you have never done the duck tours you should. You get a detailed tour of hot springs riding on this old war vehical, then they drive it into lake hamilton and it becomes a boat. The tour is about an hour and a half and no bathrooms. For $18.00 you can do the duck tour, the winery, and the wax museum. Really a good value. The winery is the best ever.
i have been to hot springs several times in my life enjoyed it all. i took a duck ride ever time i have been there. My wife and i took a duck ride this june and was very disappointed in it. the water part of the tour was very short for the tour. the Cap. we had (carl) was a very good guy to take a tour with he provided all the infomation he could about the city. i just think for the money (not that it was alot) they could have made the tour longer. i know gas price have went up but i was able to drive there to visit the city. you know for the money they get off every trip they could just give a little more. i would visit the alligator farm first.
THIS WAS A FAMILY & FRIENDS VACATION TAKE ON JUNE 27-29 2008. THE DUCK TOURS WAS THE FIRST THING WE WANT TO DO. THIS WAS A GOOD CHOICE. WE GOT A PACKAGE DEAL FOR THE DUCK TOURS, WINERY & WAX MUSEUEM. IT WAS WORTH THE MONEY & THE TIME. WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME, OURS BOAT CAPTAIN WAS CAPTAIN CARL, AND HE WAS WONDERFUL . I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE ON VACATION IN HOT SPRINGS TO PUT THIS ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS TO DO.
we did the combo for $14 a person and recieved the duck ride, the wax museum tickets, and the wine tasting all included. the person that states it is $26 is referring to the full price (which is really about $27). the duck ride alone was worth more than the package itself. thanks for a great time.
It is a bad way to get prospective customers by advertising that it costs $4 per person to ride the Duck Tour. We decided we'd like to try the tour and went into the building to pay. The clerk said, "$26 per person." HUH? She said, "OH, how you get the ride for $4 is that the $14 is for the Winery, $8 is for Tiny Town and that means the Duck Tour is $4." We didn't want to go to the other two places and they did not have just a fee for the Duck Tour. So we did not pay the $26 per person. We weren't the only customers who were disappointed and left.
i loved it! i rode with captain crazy the music man, iv;e been to hot springs many times and rode the ducks, ive had this guy ever sence the first time a rode, my family also loves it, they wont ride a duck there with anyone else!. this guy rocks! ask for captain crazy, the guy with the wild hair dew!
(Meant to give four stars instead of two but unable to change that now?) Tour guide's jokes got a little corny, but this is a worthwhile ride if you go to Hot Springs. Fills in the gaps about local history, places to visit, etc. Bring your camera / camcorder....
