The kids loved the tour. The level of education more than exceeded expectations. The guide did a great job of interacting with the customers. Letting most of the children on board drive the boat was huge. They both talked about it for days. A good investment to learn key facts about bean town. Note: parking not for beginners.

What could be more fun than to ride a Duck driven by an elf? Lots of interesting and historical material crammed into a fun trip on land and into the Charles River. My son was able to "drive" the Duck while we were on the water and it was the highlight of the tour for him. A great way to... More

We went through the most important sites in Boston, traveled through beautiful streets and saw the so many Dunkin Doughnuts Boston offers.... Then we went on a tour on the water where we saw many interesting sites and gained more wisdom about our history. Loved it! Our tour guide was fun, witty and filled with wisdom.

Had a great time with our tour guide, the Godfather! He kept us laughing the whole trip while seeing the city by land and water. I can say I also learned quite a bit about the city's history! Highly recommend this tour!

Great tour especially on a rainy day. Very interesting way to see some of Boston's great sights. Our tour guide, The Godfather,' was entertaining and full of great history, stories and anecdotes--also some good jokes. Hard to imagine how the guides drive those huge duck boats through the crowded streets, but we were in good hands. With children and grandchildren... More

I had some reservations about driving around Boston in a "boat" on wheels, but I have to say, this was by far worth the money! There are so many historic sites in Boston and just non way to see them all in a short stay. Never fear... Boston Duck Tours will take you by many of them from the comfort... More

This was my first time taking a duck tour. Very fun and interesting. Great way to learn the neighborhoods. My tour guide was "The Joker". He was very knowledgeable and humorous . All of the major sites were pointed out, including some that I did not know about. Love going into the water. Definitely need to make reservations as they... More
