I'd never done a duck tours before, so considering Boston has so much water I thought it'd be a great place to do one. The tour lasts around 80-90 minutes and I'd say about 60% of it is done on land and 40% on the water. I didn't know this beforehand but each driver plays a different character, I can't... More

This was a fantastic addition to our stay in the lovely city of Boston. The tour of classic attractions on land, which also included a trip on the water was an excellent combination. Our guide was Captain Meatball and he was very funny, friendly and informative. We would recommend this tour.

We took a family trip to Boston having never been. Lots of articles suggested Boston Duck tour as a way to get a good look at Boston so we did. We stayed in Back Bay and found there was a stop at the Prudential Center about a block from our Hotel. Also I found if you go before 10AM you... More

We caught the Boston Duck Tour at the Museum of Science. Our driver was Disco Dan - fully dressed in character, and very knowledgeable about the Boston area. The tour lasts about 80-90 minutes, and includes a ride on the Charles River, where any child is invited to drive these renovated WWII amphibious landing vehicles. We followed the duck tour... More

We have come to Boston several times and have wanted to do the duck tours but never had the chance until this year. If you have never been to Boston or haven't had a chance to explore the city- DO THIS FIRST. What an awesome way to see a lot of Boston and get some background information on places you... More

We were sceptical but decided to try this tour anyway and it was totally worth it. They use WWII style amphibious vehicles so it's partly on land and partly on the Charles river. The guides are goofy but impart a lot of information. It was also nice to be on a tour where we could sit down for 1 1/2... More

We decided to do this tour rather than a trolley bus - to get some history of Boston but in a really fun way. Our guide Professor Quackinstein was excellent and we had a great 90 minutes on water and land in Molly molasses. Brilliant for kids and big kids alike. Highly recommended!!

The historic sites are tightly connected with American history. The vehicle took us visiting attractions. The instruction was vivid and interesting.

My family and I did this tour in late July. Had a wonderful time! It is a great way to see some of the city, get a quick history lesson and take a cruise up the Charles river. Don't hesitate to take this tour, you will not be disappointed.

We only had one day to spend in Boston. This was our 2nd trip to this great city. First time, we had limited time also & used the Hop-on/Hop-off Bus. We really didn’t get our money’s worth out of the bus, as by the time we took the entire loop, our time was running short. This time, we opted to... More
