Driving around Boston, kept up to date by the tour guide were great but splashing down into the Charles was far more exciting, followed by unusual views of Harvard University. I even got to drive for a little while.

Review of: Boston Duck Tour

We took the tour departing from the Seaport. The “captain” was quite a character but it gave some charm to the experience. It was a fun way to see the city from the streets as well as the river. However very expensive!

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.
