It was really great to experience the Duck going into the water. It is a little expensive because the itinerwry itself is not the best you can get at Boston. But the tour itself was just OK. I myself prefered the Hop-On-Hop-Off tour.

Was in Boston for a conference. They scheduled a duck boat tour. Breathtakingly beautiful! The tour guide was so cool and funny... but we saw a lot of historical landmarks. We even entered into a quacking contest with the passing boats. Highly recommend!

Review of: Boston Duck Tour

All kids on our boat drove (even a 2 yr old!) Informative and covered many landmarks. The only thing I didn’t like was that our tour guide didn’t paint the Puritans or Pilgrims in a good light. Opinions are fine, but it was just unexpected....More

We went on Monday, early afternoon. There were no issues with traffic. If it’s cool or windy day, take a jacket because it will be chilly on the tour.
