Ride the Ducks Branson
Ride the Ducks Branson was a total surprise of how wonderful and enjoyable this event could be. We bought the tickets expecting not much, but a time filler. What a surprise this event was. Captain Blue, our guide, made this event a very memorable one. I salute you Captain Blue for a job well done, and I would recommend to anyone visiting Branson not to miss the opportunity to Ride the Ducks Branson.
