This is a great price and good fun. After checking around at all the pricey stuff to do around Branson we were glad to take this tour. It goes on land and water and it is a blast. Caption Candy was a precious man. Also takes you on top of the mountain to show you WW2 and other vechile used. Asking for a moment of silence for our fallen. Once in the water they will let any kid drive and get a pic. Price was 29. for adults.

We had a great experience on the Ducks. Our captain was named D.J. if I remember correctly. He was a older gentleman and he was very energetic and entertaining. We enjoyed driving past all the military equipment. We would do it again.

We took the tour this week and had a great time. Our group of seven ages from 8 & 9, teenagers, mid-30’s, mid-40’s and mid-50’s... and we all had a great time. The ride was approximately 1 1/2 hours and had a large segment on land with a guided tour of a local dam, a rock quarry and, of course, driving out into the water. We got more for our money than we were expecting. It is a “do once” kind of place, but we would definitely recommend doing it that once!

Love this attraction! The guide was so much fun. The tour is great! Love going into the water! And visiting the memorial. The only thing i noticed is they seem to have raised there prices since Ripley's have bought them. Was fun just a lil expensive this time.

The Duck was great. It lasted 1.5 hours. We had Carol and Captain Dan riding The Jenny and they were fantastic. Their humor made the trip. We enjoyed the adventure. I gave it 4 stars and not 5 because for 2 adults/ 2 kids it was $93. That is a lot and way too expensive.
