We've done the tour before, but this was the best. Our driver was very witty and very knowledgeable. He also got us to the harbor just as the USS Constitution was being moved out to sea. He parked up for awhile so we could watch the action. The DUKW itself is amazing - amphibious vehicle copied from a WWII design.... More

It rained all day in when we were there for one day. We took the Duck Tour for aa little more than an hour, going on land and water. Driver/guide was more fun than informative. Anyway, worth a spending a hour on to get a quick overview of Boston and at the same time have some fun.

A good way to see the city, take the chance to drive if you can, it's great fun. The ideal way to plan your sightseeing tour, seat are on the small side.

We took this tour to get a feel for the city. Frankly their are other walking tours which achieve this far better. The novelty of being in an amphibious vehicle is a fine, but don't expect much insight into the city. Not really value for money in our view

Definitely a good idea to do this tour in the beginning of your visit if you are unfamiliar with Boston. You travel all over the city and get the lay of the land so to speak. The drivers/guides are excellent! Also with your ticket you get coupons for discounts for other attractions such as the aquarium. Also when visiting Boston... More

Just do it. This is a tremendous amount of fun while being very informative about the city at the same time. The tour guides seem to be quite knowledgable though if possible try and get the girl called PJ....you can't miss her as she is wearing Pj's. (pyjamas). She is an absolute scream and quite obviously a bit of a... More

This isn't something I would normally think was fun. Boy was I wrong. We walked so much the day before from our base in the North End that I was happy to sit back and relax. Our driver was great. He told stories and pointed out everything as we rolled through Boston. I was surprised with the boat portion of... More

This was our first DUWK tour and it was enjoyable. We took our two sons ages 7 and 9 along for the ride. We arrived at 12:30 and were able to purchase tickets at the kiosk for the 1:30 tour. You should get there about 20 minutes before the tour begins as you will line up before boarding the bus.... More

Our cunducktor was Major Tom Foolery. Everything had a great style to it, even the safety warnings were... More
