We took the 3 day premium ticket. It really was quite a value. You can get on & off as often as you like to tour the city. We had 2 day not full day but still we wanted to see as much as we could. You really need 3 full days or more to see everything. Even if you... More

All the drivers were entertaining and had a great feel for the history of Boston...good value. Drivers shared all of their knowledge. Riding the Duck in the harbor was awesome.

Awesome James, thanks for your comments! We really offer something totally unique in Boston: a full duck tour of Boston Harbor, including the USS Constitution. You can't get that in the Charles River! Glad it was a good tour and we hope to see you again! Jonathan Silverman Boston Super Tours More

Super duck tours in Boston are probably the worst tour company to deal with. Other than having good tour guides they do not have sufficient buses and we had to wait in the freezing cold for extended times for a bus when other tour company buses flew past. Will never use this company again

Hi Mervyn. Well at least you thought our guides were good! Sorry your experience was hampered by vehicle availability but we're adding new vehicles as fast as possible and we'd expect you to have a better experience if you try us again next time you're in Boston.

This was my 3rd trip to Boston and my first time doing the Super Duck Tour. I wish I had done this sooner! This was well worth the money and we got a deal that allowed us to hop on and off the trolley for 3 days. We saw everything! This took us all along the Freedom Trail, Cambridge, the... More

Right you are 726marcier: all visitors to Boston should on their very first visit ride with Super Duck Tours and Upper Deck Trolley Tours to learn history they might not know and to see the magnificence of Boston! Glad you came around! Jonathan Silverman Boston Super Tours More

I'm a life long Bostonian. Took this tour with visiting family members and absolutely LOVED IT!!! One of the best things about the tour was the ticket agent that we purchased our tickets from on Tremont St. His Name was Kori and he was so nice and extremely funny. He had the thickest Boston Accent that my family had ever... More

The reason its "Super" is because they give you (on a gorgeous day like we had), stunning views of the city from the Harbor. Cpt Tom is OH SO Patriot/Bahstonian/New Englandah through and through - he just LOVES this city. The tour itself didn't offer the "comedy" and show that you'll find on the Duck Tour brand, BUT they do... More

Thanks for the comparison Rita. Interesting overview from the perspective of a touring guest, which we really value. Another big difference between us and the other duck company in Boston is the choice of venue: we tour in Boston Harbor and offer free Charles Riverboat cruises to our Premium ticket holders in the warm months, while the other duck company...

My husband and I took this trip in May 2014. It was a great relaxing trip. We will surely be bringing our grandchildren when they get old enough to understand the history. The boat/bus was clean. The workers on the bus was helpful and informative as if they knew we were nervous travelers. There are several tours available like this... More

Recently had the good fortune to tour Boston harbour area aboard a "Duck" boat. Capt. Mike was competent and friendly. Kerry, the guide, went above and beyond in and annimated way to make the tour highly entertaining, informative and memorable.

Great views of Boston and "Old Ironsides". Howie and Hannah were our guides and they gave a great narrative. It's definitely a great way to see Boston from the water.

The trip itself was good although we found the 90 minutes a bit long. That probably had more to do with the commentary than the actual trip. We took the shuttle bus from quincy market and from the moment we got on, the driver jabbered total nonsense for the whole journey. There were some interesting facts in there but it... More

Thanks for writing kathiella and sorry the tour wasn't to your liking. We get tons of feedback about our tours, as you can imagine, and while most people find the commentary really informative there are some who feel it's either too much or too little. It might be hard to believe after your experience but we've actually had people complain... More
