I put off going on a Duck Tour for years because I'm local and didn't think it would show me anything new. Not true! There is always something new to learn about the history of Boston. The tour guides are very funny and really know their facts. You can start at a variety of places in Boston. I did the... More

Kate C, Guest Relations Manager at Boston Duck Tours, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to review BDT! Many local guests assume it is just for tourists. After they take the tour they become repeat riders. All of our ConDUCKtors have a different persona and delivery so it is a different experience each time. It makes my day when we exceed expectations. Hopefully, this will not be the first and...

These "boats" are a great way to tour the city of Boston. The tour guides tell you the facts, but also the locals' views of the sights. They are covered, so you can go rain or shine. These are the same boats used during the Red Sox and Patriots parades.

I live in Boston and I went with a friend on a duck boat. The drivers are wildly funny and they obviuosly know the city very well. As we went in the water the driver asked if anyone would like to drive it. I volunteered and so did my friend. This is an essential must see attraction in Boston so... More

We took the Duck Tour in Boston and really enjoyed the narration of Plucky Ruffles and the whole group yelling "Quack,Quack" when we passed other Duck Tours. Really cool going in and out of the water. Would highly recommend and if I return to Boston, I will do again. Early (before 10am) gets a discount as well as google other... More

I was in Boston on a business trip and I booked this tour over the weekend. The drivers are hilarious! The drivers are extremely entertaining and they keep the ride very informative too. They even let you come to the wheel when the duck's in the river if you want to (under supervision of course). Watching everything from the river... More

This was my third Boston duck tour- and it was just as good as the others. The guides are always entertaining, and it is a fantastic way to see the city. Seeing Boston from the Charles is worth the tour. I know I will do the duck tour the next time I am in Boston. I would recommend going on... More

These tours are total fun, even being a local I have done them twice. The drivers are a total blast and it is fun for all ages. The fact that you can do land and sea makes it super unique and special. The views from the Charles River are awesome and they even give the kids a chance to drive... More

We don't usually do guided tours, but it was a wet and rainy day in December and we wanted an easy way to see the sights. We decided to go to Prudential center and do a Duck Boat tour. As cheesy as it sounds, the tour was actually really awesome and the guide/driver was hilarious. The guide we had, named... More

I have taken this tour several times with friends visiting boston and have always enjoyed it. I think all the guides have their own way of entertaining the guests and somehow this company has managed to hire all enthusiasts. Must do if you are visiting mass or surrounding states.
