We took this tour on a damp Wednesday morning but our mood was soon lifted by our driver and tour guide who was fantastic and extremely entertaining. The duck is a great way to see the city and part of the Charles river.

If you are looking for a way to see a lot of Boston in a unique and fun way, then jump on a duck. Our driver and guide, Bogie Sparks, was both informative and funny, making the tour very interesting and entertaining.

We were a bit unsure of this tour but decided to try it anyway. Of two tours, this was the absolute best. The tour guide, Flo, was funny, friendly, knowledgeable and pointed out things we were actually interested in, not just reciting facts and dates. The duck rides on land and water, so we got to see the city both... More

We did the 3 pm tour, which seemed to be perfect with weather. It was 37.50 per person. If you go online you can get it for cheaper but you must go before 9:30. It does save you about $9 a ticket. The tour guide was informative and very funny. A must do!

Part of a fabulous 50th Birthday gift from some great friends! We were in the City for 4 days and had lots to see so this tour was perfect in a whistle-stop sort of way. Stacks of information from a very entertaining 'Duck' driver. It takes about 90 minutes but its well worth it. Learned a lot about Boston.

The guide gave us important historical info, and he was super fun. You can enjoy the city and the river. I had never been in an amphibious car before. I liked the experience.

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.
