BCP is very easy to use.  You can export to a csv file, which works very nicely in Excel.

It's a free command line tool included with all versions of SQL Server.

Another command line option is SQLCMD.

See below for exporting to CSV.

Note, if you want to export directly to an Excel format, you'll probably need to use SSIS or an openrowset.

using SQL server management studio you can also export the results to csv, just right click one of the column headers in the output window and click "Save Results As..."

What I've used in the past has been Embarcaderro or PL/SQL with Oracle dbs. Is there a simple version of these types of software that I can use to extract some data from my ms sql database?
