This tour was very fun, especially the novelty of going in the river. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city and did a great job driving the huge vehicle through tight spots. Great way to see the city.

The rout, both on the land and on the water was great. The river and Back Bay part of the tour gave a whole new perspective to the... More

He had the perfect combination of funny and informative. Would highly recommend to someone who has not been in Boston before. We went on a Sunday... More

What a great day! Took my nieces and the guide let one of the steer the boat. They loved it! They had never been through this part of Boston and I loved to see the smiles on their faces. After the tour we visited the museum.

Anyone visiting Boston with their children should definitely take a Duck Tour. You get history mixed with some comedy and it's a fun way to see the town. All the while we honk are way through the city! The highlight for the kids is the splash into the Charles River. The driver let the kids take turns "steering" the boat.... More

Oh my goodness, we had an absolute blast on this duck tour. Our guide was Flo and she was hysterical! We learned a bunch and just had so much fun. I have told all my friends to go see Flo.

Sights and sounds on dry land and in water. The drivers are funny as well as great tour guides. Our kids even got to steer the Duck once in the water. This is my second time on a Duck and I'd do it again!
