Even if you think it looks like the most touristy thing you could do in Boston, you should absolutely take a duck tour! We had Captain Blackeye, smartest pirate I've ever met! He's hilarious, made me smile the whole time. After going on this ride I had a much better understanding of the layout of Boston and the history. Wish... More

I had always wanted to take a Duck Tour and had the opportunity during a recent trip to Boston. The guide was fun and informative and it was great seeing the city by both water and land.

Sadly, I feel as though it just skimmed the surface of what this area has to offer. I wish... More

A joint tour around the city and onto the river, all in the same vehicle... Great guide and a fun atmosphere throughout. Worth a trip.

If you only have a short amount of time in Boston the Duck Tours are amazing and very fun. We had the Cod Father as a tour guide and really enjoyed the whole experience! A MUST!
