Owner description: This is an amphibious land and sea tour rated as one of the Top 10 Best Family Experiences and Winner of the Tourism Awards Singapore! The craft is a remodeled WWII amphibious Vietnamese war craft that promises you the best tour experience. This hour-long journey brings you up close to Singapore's famous skyline, historical landmarks and gorgeous bay view. You'll also be hearing the Singapore story from our DUCKtainers commentating live onboard the craft. It is an adventure and thrill ride all in one, ride the original Wacky DUCK now!

I would give it a "0" if that were possible. Four of us paid for this experience and the only seats left in the vehicle were the very back row. When the engine started, it was like standing right in front of a jet airplane on takeoff. There were no speakers and no headsets (although there was an "outlet" for headsets). The "guide" had a microphone but we could not hear one single word she said. Plus by the time the one hour trip was over, we were practically deaf from the noise. We complained to the guide and her response was, "You shouldn't sit in the back". Well, they pack the vehicles full and we had no other choice! Bad experience on what should have been a really fun outing.

My 12 year old son really wanted to take this so we decided to do it. It only lasts about 1.5 hours and you get to see some pretty cool sights in and around Singapore. It spends about 20 minutes in the water as well as on the roads. Pictures in Marina Bay are pretty amazing.

I thought this was going to be a bit of a novelty ride/cruise largely for kids. How wrong can one be? I took my grand-daughter on DUCKtours and we both loved it. The seating is comfortable, if a bit plain, and yes, you may get a splash or two of water spray on you.
However, the commentary is very interesting and IT IS A THRILL to drive off the road and into the water.
But for me, the most enjoyable aspect was to experience this old amphibious military vehicle. It's had a few conversions (like an added canopy) but there's enough of the original vehicle left to provide lots of interest.

we unfortunately got the back seats next to the boat\car engine and could not hear the tour guide's explanation of the sights on the tour.

When I commented to him about the noise his answer was to say this is the way it is.

A poor response considering the price we paid.

make sure you get one of the seats forward in the boat.
