Tour description provided by Viator

Hop into an amphibious vehicle for an 80-minute Philadelphia duck tour that takes you over both land and water. Your US Coast Guard-certified captain entertains with informative commentary about Philadelphia attractions such as Independence Hall and Franklin’s Grave as you explore the Old City District — the most historic square mile in America. You’ll learn about Philly's famous Museum District before splashing into the Delaware River for spectacular views of the city skyline, the Battleship New Jersey and more.

Make your way to the pickup point, across from the Liberty Bell, and hop into the ‘duck’— an amphibious vehicle that resembles a World War II DUKW design. Built from the ground up using the latest in marine design, each vehicle is USCG-certified and tested regularly to ensure a safe and comfortable ride.
Start your 80-minute duck tour of Philadelphia driving through the historic Old City District. See more than 100 notable landmarks including City Hall, Independence Hall, the Philadelphia Mint, Carpenter’s Hall, Betsy Ross House, Elfreth’s Alley, Franklin’s Grave, Washington Square and the Declaration House.
Learn about the most historic square mile in America as your informative guide entertains and educates you about local sites and attractions such as the National Constitution Center, Chinatown and the Rocky Statue. Hear stories of Philly’s famous personalities and find out about the city’s role in film, song and sports.
Grab locals' attention as you quack along while rolling through the streets with a complimentary Wacky Quacker, making your experience more interactive.
Pass the Rodin Museum and Philadelphia Museum of Art In the Museum District before splashing into the Delaware River.
