No stay in Boston would be complete without taking a Boston Duck Tour. Tour lasts about 80 minutes, depending on traffic. Our tour driver "Major Tom Foolery" was a hoot. Running narrative all the time, with great facts and details about each and every location passed on the tour. How the drivers navigate the streets of downtown Boston amazed me.... More

My husband said this was his favorite day in Boston because of this tour. Our entire family loved the sights and sounds of Boston. They do snap a quick photo of your party prior to the tour and offer them to you at the end for $20. The tour was wonderful and the pictures were too. Highly recommend~

If you've never been to Boston, I highly recommend this tour. I've gone on two of the Duck Tours and both were fantastic. The tour guides are hilarious! They give you a lot of historical information, you get a complete tour of some of Boston's highlights and you get to go into the Charles River too! This tour is fun... More

This was worth it. We have this in my town, but there is not much to see. Boston is amazing and we learned things that the locals did not even know. Great compact history lesson and you get to see a lot in a short period of time. Our driver was excellent! Great Christopher Walken impression. :)

You get a little bit of everything on this humorous, floating tour of Boston. It's an amusing way to get a quick feel for where you are and where you'd like to focus your time. Our driver was amusing and knowledgable. One note, it was an extremely hot day, but once we started moving and were on the water I... More

This was such a fun thing to do and to get an overview of Boston - not least because of the crazy driver and tour guide also know as "conducktors"! We had a guy called Bogie Sparks and he must win the competition for the fastest speaker in Boston.

We learned so much about Boston, and after the tour was over, we followed up on all the suggestions from our guide. The land tour was a blast , but so was the water tour!

A tremendous amount of fun and a great way to see the city. Our driver/guide kept us entertained as he showed us the sights. And driving into the river was bonkers but a great experience. We did this on the day we arrived and it was a great way to get our bearings and work out where the key sites... More

Nice way to take a tour and see which places you may want to visit on your own. We liked everything about the tour around Boston while driving. The water part was least interesting, but still fun none the less.
