Learn all about Boston from drivers who are trained in its deep history. Best part is riding the bus into the water and viewing Boston from a completely different angle

I think its a must see if you are visiting Boston with children or if you just want to check it out! I did it with my family and we had a good time. It was a nice tour of the Charles River and some of the main sights in Boston.

The Boston Duck Tours, was fun riding around on land and water in the DUKW "Duck" amphibious truck. Our driver/guide was Professor Quackenstein. Not sure if all the tours are the same, but ours was very much geared towards the younger crowd; little too goofy at times. I would have liked the option to an adult tour. The highlight of... More

This was a mew experience for me and one I won't forget! Riding about town in a Duck was interesting and learning all the detailed history not covered in text books was a delight for a history fan like myself.

A must if you are visiting Boston with children, or just the young at heart. Amphibious truck goes through downtown Boston, then goes out onto the Charles River basin. Kids are given the chance to drive the boat in the river. Humorous guides narrate the history of Boston, more or less. Avoid rush hours as the traffic can eat up... More

I have been a Boston tourist from Maine for over 25 years. Never have I done a duck tour until recently. I thought I knew everything about Boston until I met Flo, the driver on the duck tour bus/boat. Flow made the trip exciting and memorable. She even let me pilot the boat filled with passengers through the Boston waterways.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
