We were in town for a conference so didn't have much time to sightsee. It was a quick & easy way to see the city, learn some cool facts & was overall fun! The guide was excellent & knew so much history. The boat was comfortable, easy to locate in the city & you get the drive the boat! Loved... More

A lot of historical places were... More

The Duck Tour is the best way to see Boston before you start on the Feeedom Trail or tour any of the colleges. You get a history of the city and many of the landmarks. Our guide Tom Foolery knew this town and was helpful in telling us where to eat and go after our tour. Go early before it... More

Very entertaining tour to take when in the area. We enjoyed the drive around town with information from our conDUCKtor. The nicest part of this tour is the ride across the St. Charles River, giving you a different perspective of the Boston skyline. It's a little expensive, and you can gather more information from a walking tour, but you can't... More

We really liked this and was a very memorable way to see Boston if you are a tourist. It was fairly priced and you got a history lesson and a lot of laughs. Our guide Hardley Davidson was great! He was hilarious and knew a lot. He said he had been working there 9 years and was excellent. I don't... More

We took our tour from the Museum Of Science. Our conDUCKtour was Mallard Storm. He was hysterically funny and such a nice guy. We laughed and learned history all at the same time. Once the vehicle transitioned from the road to the water, Mallard Storm allowed the children to drive the boat. Any child who wanted to drive got a... More

We went on the Dukw on 07/24/14 from the Prudential center. Our Guide is "The Godfather" William Ketchen who did an amazing job of navigating the duck among crowded streets and had a dramatic flair with his narration. Man should have been a history Professor at Harvard. He was very knowledgeable, passionate and witty. Our kids had a lot of... More

This tour was great! I really enjoyed it, as it was a great way to familiarize ourselves with the city. Our tour guide seemed very knowledgable and funny! I'm glad we took this tour early in the week, because it made navigating through the city so much easier for us later in the week. They take a boarding photo of... More
