I have been to Boston many times and even worked there for a while. If you visit you need at least a week. It has lovely parks, waterside restaurants and events and the duck tours are fund and informative.

We took our grandson on the duck tour and we had a great time. The driver was funny and the highlight was that he let the kids drive on the water.

We did the Duck Tour our first morning in Boston. Right away, we saw an overview of Boston, got our bearings, heard interesting stories, and even saw Boston from the Charles River! I highly recommend that you put this at the top of your list to do first.

We had a lot of fun on tour. My three year old son loved and talked about non stop how "can drive on water" A lot of fun and although busy being a holiday weekend wait went quick.

It was a great tour. The Cod-farther was a terrific director. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He made it fun and answered all questions and gave us a great experience. Highly recommended!

Its was a fun 80 minute trip, half of which is on land and the other half on water. The land part takes you through the key boston areas like the north End and the driver is really funny but tells you all the history you can possibly imagine about Boston and the buildings you are going past. The 40... More

5 stars, hands down. Easy, but likely thanks to our awesome guide - Tim Burr. This guy has an incredible personality, is funny, and really knows how to work the crowd. I have never been one to do organized tours like this, and especially not the Duck Boat kind, which I always thought was a silly, overpriced, tourist trap, gimmick,... More

Really fun way to see Boston. This amphibious vehicle takes you into the Charles River too. My 13 year old even got to "drive" the Duck in the river! Our guide Flo was an absolute hoot! My advice: don't do late afternoon tours on Friday. Traffic is getting snarled already and it felt like our tour was abbreviated because of... More

My husband and I & our 7 yr old son went on the duck tour on 8/26. This is a must do for Boston. Its a great way to see all the landmarks and then decide which ones you want to go back to on foot and explore. Its good for both adults and children. Our driver Dr. Phineas Duck... More

Tour guide / driver was funny. She knew the city well, but I would have preferred more indepth information about the historical sights. We went to the Museum of Science, took the tour and then continued our visit in the museum. The tours depart the museum every 30 minutes. You may buy your tickets at the museum. One note -... More
