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.
My son and I enjoyed the tour. It was a rainy, cold day, so the plastic windows were down. I wish we would have had better weather for viewing the sights and taking pictures. (None of which is BDT fault.) Our guide was full of...More
Definately a great way to see Boston and enjoy the land and water show. The staff was great, the ride was enjoyable and I recommend to others visiting Boston. It was a little weird going into the water from a moving boat but worth the...More
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!
I have lived in Boston all my life, except the 5 yrs spent in Ohio...lol. I must admit that I have never road the Boston Duck Tour, until I was an adult. I loved it. the land marks where amazing and the ride through the...More
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
Four of us did the duck tour during out Mother's Day trip to Boston. The drivers have to "audition" for the job and we had a great driver. He was fun and very knowledgeable. The tour itself was interesting and going into the water was...More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
