Ducks or hop on off tour, which is better?
The Hop on-off is a trolley driven tour that drives around tours downtown, Northshore, Southside. You get off to see a specific area and then get back on.
Both tours are 1 Hour plus.
Last time I road the ducks the guide was fabulous- lots of knowledge of the history- have not done the hop on hop off yet but planning to in July-
Ducks do have "tour guides" that give you lots of information as you go around.
Not sure the trolley drivers do anything but drive, but they do go more places and further away from downtown.
I have been told recently, by some friends who took the Hop on-off Tour, it did have a driver, guide. He did inform them of where they were going and added comments about Chattanooga during the ride.
You could always call and ask. This would help you make your decision.
Both attempt to entertain their riders with a semi-historical yet trivial view of the city. Same for the ghost tours. They are all in the entertainment business.
