Robert Frost could have used a local guide when he decided to take the road less traveled, as he discovered only too late that it was a gully carved to redirect flowing lava. Stay on the right path with this Groupon.

$27 for an Amphibious City Tour for Two (Up to $54 Value)

On each approximately 70-minute tour, captains guide amphibious vessels down Philadelphia's streets and through the historic square mile, as well as in and out of the Delaware River. Along the way, passengers take in sights such as the Philadelphia Mint, Battleship New Jersey, and Adventure Aquarium while captains enrich the experience with informative narration. Tours depart from the Independence Mall area at 6th and Chestnut Streets, just across from the Liberty Bell.

Ride The Ducks

Part of the Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation—which also operates amusement destinations such as Dollywood and San Francisco's Classic Cable Car Sightseeing—Ride The Ducks ranks among the nation's largest amphibious-tour operators. Captains welcome guests aboard amphibious vessels based on a 1940s General Motors military vehicle called the DUKW that served as an indispensable resource to both General Patton and General Eisenhower during World War II. At Ride The Ducks' six locations—Branson, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Stone Mountain, and Newport—these vessels roam the streets and glide in and out of local waterways to give passengers views of each city's most noteworthy sights, from the Liberty Bell to the Bay Bridge. The captain narrates each tour, and following the ride, guests can make calls with Wacky Quackers, provided they say nothing rude in duck language. Every vessel maintains US Coast Guard standards, such as maintaining a plentiful stock of personal flotation devices.

Ride The Ducks' rates vary by age.
