Our tour guide was Ace and he was awesome very informative yet fun. I learned some pretty neat facts it definitely didn't feel like 80 minutes. Went with my honey, mom and grandma we all really enjoyed it. I highly recommend the tour if you're in Boston for the day.

Friendly & funny people, knowledgeable about Boston and it's history. A little pricey but worth it if you wanna see and get an idea of the major historical points of Boston. The boat ride is nice too. very enjoyable. I think in total we spent about two hours with the company.

This is a good version of the Duck tour type. The Captain and his assistant did an excellent job of explaining the details of what we were seeing.

Not a great tour -- lame tour guides. It was nice to be out on the water, but there was really no reason to take the boat ride for any cultural or educational purposes. I mean, it was kind of boring, which is the last think I expected....

Sorry the tour wasn't what you expected turkergirl. Thanks for letting us know. We do pass by several historically important points of interest, including the Bunker Hill Monument, USS Constitution, and others all while taking in the salty sea air and magnificent views of the Boston skyline. Hopefully your tour guides pointed out the points of interest you were passing... More

Was the final stop on our New England cruise, and really had nothing planned. A couple we had met on board told us they were doing this tour, so we tagged along. Was a good way to see some highlights of Boston, with our driver and co pilot being very informative about what we were seeing. I would say you... More

Thanks for the review Bob. In case you're back in Boston sometime with a more leisurely schedule, our other tours include a multi-day, hop on hop off trolley tour of historic Boston which includes free extra bonus tours and admissions to local museums, a river tour, and more with a Premium ticket on our Upper Deck Trolley Tour. That should... More

I got a new perspective on Boston, both visually and through the excellent narrative provided by Capt. John and first mate Anne. Did this for the kids but I think I had as much fun learning about how the Waterfront has been a constantly evolving part of our city. Highly recommend.

Thanks Emmanuel O! So many locals take our tours for the first time after living in Boston for a while and are amazed at what they learn. Even people who were born and raised in the Boston area have told us there's so much they never knew until they rode with us. Glad Capt John and Anne made you tour... More

Right on Dave! Thanks for sharing your experience! People just love the idea of one vehicle taking them through the city streets of historic Boston and then splashing into Boston harbor to continue their tour by the USS Constitution and other important sights without having to change vehicles. It really is a quacking good time! Come back again! Jonathan Silverman... More
