I reluctantly bought tickets and fully expected to be bored with another tour. Not at all! We had the "great Gerabaldi" as our driver. He was funny, informative, witty and made the hour and a half fly by. Great for all ages. Highly recommend.

This brought out the little kid in me. I mean come on how awesome is it that the truck turns into a boat and takes you around Boston on land and see.. And of course I loved quacking at the people walking through town! Must do!

We had one of the best experiences on this tour. We had a very informative guide, who was funny, kind, and knowledgeable to all the questions asked. He was the "Codfather". We saw a groupon that was currently advertised, and the savings all said and done was only $2. You saved $5 with the groupon, but then the company charged... More

Nice historic tour of the city with some humor and scandalous tales thrown in for flavor. Opt for a shorter tour if you have young kids. We did get our tickets from the concierge at the hotel and he was able to direct us to our best option. The duck tours leave from several locations with differing tour times. Buy... More

On of our kids' favorite parts of our weekend trip to Boston was the duck tour. Doctor Quack was an awesome driver/tour guide. The kids had ridden on a duck in Wisconsin, but they actually got to drive the duck on the Boson tour. This was a fun way to learn more about Boston and see the city. We booked... More

Mallard Storm, our conducktor, was awesome! We've been to Boston many times but never done the Duck Tour before. It's a great breezy ride, full of interesting facts, and an all around good time for all ages. It's also perfect for when you are ready to graduate from the swan boats, which our kids always loved, many times. QUACK!

I've worked in Boston for over 25 years, take the train in and out. Spend a lot of time walking around the town and eating in different restaurants. But have never taken a tour of any kind. Decided to take the grandchildren in for a Duck boat excursion. Sixty minutes was perfect. Our guide Skipper was funny and informative. You... More

We really enjoyed the duck tour. I recommend getting you tickets online because they fill up fast. There are 2 versions and we opted for the 60 minutes. Our tour guide was knowledgable and a fun personality. It's a unique way to see the highlights of the city.

We frequent Boston for sporting events but decided to do the tour this time. We went out of Museum of Science. The people there were helpful and very good at their jobs. Driver knew his city and wanted to know his riders.
