After wheeling through the streets of Pittsburgh, you’ll smoothly splash down into one of the three rivers where you will have a glorious view of the city. Yes, it really does splash down in the water! Each tour begins in Station Square and waddles through the city’s business district, allowing you to view amazing cultural and historical sites that can only been see in Pittsburgh. The Just Ducky fleet consists of six-wheel-drive amphibious trucks that were designed by General motors during World War II. The guides add laughter and entertainment while providing fun facts that even some native Pittsburghers might not know. They will have you all quacked up by the end of the tour! Tour times start at 10:00am and go to 6:00pm (EDT). Pricing starts at $25.00 for adults, children age 3–12 $15.00, and infants (ages 2 and under) $5.00.
