Review of Ride The Ducks Tour of San Francisco — 5 Ways To Save in 2014.
Ever wondered what San Francisco is like from a duck’s eye view? Ok, no. But we love that this city has four quacky ways to save on the San Francisco Amphibious Duck Sightseeing Tour — all special offers take you from land to sea. You don’t have to be a tourist to take your date or favorite kid on an amphibious vehicle crafted from the WWII DUKW. Pick a warm day and have a blast.
See the options below so you can pick the one that’s right for you. Children 3 and under are admitted free but they’ll need a ticket. Follow the links for price details (in most cased seniors and children pay less than the adult prices listed below).
Ride The Ducks offers a 90-minute minute duck ride through San Francisco’s historic streets and neighborhoods, including Chinatown, Ghirardelli Square, and Union Square. Splash down into the bay and cruise McCovey Cove. You can even drive the duck if you want.
DEAL 1: Ride The Ducks Tour of San Francisco discount tickets 22% Off – $27 (reg. $35). You save $8, with no added fees and no expiration date from this ticket source.
Review: This is the simplest choice and still a good deal. The special price will expire soon, but not the voucher you buy now (they’ll send it by email) You can reschedule your tour later if you need to, which is a plus. After you get your voucher from this source, you can call or email the Duck Tour people directly with any last-minute questions or date-change requests.
DEAL 2: Ride The Ducks Tour of San Francisco discount tickets $3 Off — $32 (reg. $35), plus get an extra $1 off with Coupon Code SFRI1 at checkout. Seniors and child prices are also cheaper. No fees added.
Review: This source is showing the old regular price of $34 instead of $35, but the price has gone up a buck. So instead of a $3 discount, you’re actually saving $4 with this deal. Until they update it, it still works (but may change by the time you rad this).
DEAL 3: Ride The Ducks Tour of San Francisco Discount Tickets $2 Off — $31 adult, $29 senior, $23 child, + $2 fees.
Review: Not the best price currently, but they always have e-tickets available and ready for download, even after other deals expire. Valid any day. And we can help troubleshoot if you have any problems ordering. There’s no need to choose a date when you order. You’ll see a promo code box on the checkout page (all their checkout pages have this), but there’s no code available for Ducks.
DEAL 4: Ride The Ducks Tour of San Francisco discount tickets 50% Off — $17.50 + $5 fees (reg. $35). The e-ticket you get now from this ticket source is valid to use any day through the next month or so (follow the link for details and tickets).
Review: This deal offers the best price, but it’s valid Monday through Friday only. If you’re interested in a weekend tour, see deal 1. Also, this deal source often sells out or has fewer dates available.
DEAL 5: Splashtacular” Sunset Duck Tour Discount Tickets 50% Off — $25 (reg. $50). E-tickets available. This source requires free sign up first.
Review: This is the evening version of the tour above. A 90-minute tour through Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square and more on land, then it’s into the water for a trip to AT&T Ballpark and the Bay Bridge. Available on Saturdays and Sundays.
