Wonderful way to see Boston and learn about some of its history. Especially if your teen is a history buff. Jessie and Ann were pretty cool and very informative, Although my son and Ann did disagree on some history facts. Great day for the money. Definitely recommend it.

We decided on doing the 2 day premium ticket with Super Duck Tours. This ticket allowed you to hop on/off from the trolley and included a harbor splash tour. It was definitely a great way to see Boston. We only had 1 tour guide that was horrible, he was more interested in talking about himself and his experience in the... More

Now there are a couple of companies that do the land and sea tours for the great city of Boston. I am specifically talking about the Super Duck Tour (not to be confused with the Boston Duck Tour). We purchased tickets through Travelzoo for a discount. We were the first tour of the day. While the tour itself was average... More

Heather2595, thanks for the important feedback. We encourage our guides to be at their best at all times and it sounds like you may have caught us on an off morning. Our apologies! We'll pass your comments along to our internal staff manager to follow up. Hope you'll try us again next time you take a Boston tour! Jonathan Silverman... More

Happy with this tour. We only had an afternoon to tour Boston and thought this would be the best way to see it. We did the Duck and Bus tour combo. The Duck tour will get you some nice pics of the skyline and the USS Constitution. Don't sit in back - we couldn't hear one bit of the tour... More

I took a group of 20 kids from the inner city in Boston, Charlestown to be exact and the staff at the Super Duck Tours was amazing. They were so accommodating and friendly. The staff aboard the boat was very nice and extremely knowledgable with the city. The kids that I brought on the boat were 5-8 years old and... More

Sounds awesome nf1978! So often we don't take advantage of the history and tour options of the city in which we live. Great to know you came and had fun, and on top of that exposed so many kids to the history of Boston and the wonderful experience of the salty harbor. Well done! Come back and tour with us... More

We have taken this tour by chance and with the kindness of the crew members and really enjoyed it. The tour starts on land and takes you throughout the important places in Boston. In our trip John was the captan/driver and Ann was telling the history of Boston. It was very informative and entertaining. Both crew members were very friendly... More

Barış K, your review speaks volumes, thank you! The imagery of the Boston skyline as seen from the harbor with the setting sun as a backdrop is nothing short of poetic. So glad you toured with us and hope to see you again next time you're in Boston. Jonathan Silverman Boston Super Tours More

We purchased the package that allowed us unlimited access to the trolley for two days, the harbor splash, and one other activity. We utilized the trolley as a taxi and since the trolleys come every 15 minutes, you can easily get around Boston. Also, our drivers were fun and informative. The best part was the Harbor Splash...it was great! Captain... More

By the time you take the trolley to the duckmobile and wait to board - you've spent 45 minutes. Then the tour itself is 90 minutes - 45 min land, 45 min water. The worst part are the tour guides - they are loud and borderline obnoxious. They overlay history with mindless banter and never take a breath to let... More

Hi tarheel2000. Thanks for writing. Our tours are among the longest in Boston, and our Super Duck Tour is in fact the longest duck tour in Boston. We spend a full 45 minutes on land and another full 45 minutes at sea in Boston Harbor. Many of our guests feel that the extra time they spend with us actually adds... More
