Meet Ron, our Director of Tour Development!

Posted by on Apr 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

One of the many things we here at Ride the Ducks are proud of is our interesting, educational and fun-filled tours!

In addition to being a professional comedian and history buff, Ron brings his love of Seattle and dedication to all things FUN to our tour development! A typical day for Ron begins with a hot cup coffee (Seattle-brewed, of course) and a review of the day’s current events. “I read the paper from front to back and stay on top of Facebook, Twitter and other social media so I know exactly what’s going on in the city and what our guests want to know about.”   Ron joined Ride the Ducks almost two years ago. How many tours has Ron been on in his time here with us? “In that first summer alone, I rode on over 60 tours,” Ron said. If we didn’t know any better, we might say that he’s going for a world...
