We have enjoyed many tours on Boston Duck Tours mostly with relatives visiting from out of town. Because we live locally, we made the reservations for everybody because it was very easy to do. Fortunately, our groups were always able to take "The T" to...More

We went on this when over in Boston and it was very enhoyable. My son and daughter both got a chance to drive the boat and the captain was very friendly and told us lots of information regarding Boston. A very enjoyable family trip.

Our guide was knowledge and informative but we spend most of the ride on the road driving in circles instead of on the river. I think a walking tour would have been a better way to see the neighborhoods.

A combination city and river cruise/tour of Boston. It's guided, with a lot of fun facts about this historic US city. Often kids are allowed to steer the boat in the Charles River.

It was really great to experience the Duck going into the water. It is a little expensive because the itinerwry itself is not the best you can get at Boston. But the tour itself was just OK. I myself prefered the Hop-On-Hop-Off tour.

My son and I enjoyed the tour. It was a rainy, cold day, so the plastic windows were down. I wish we would have had better weather for viewing the sights and taking pictures. (None of which is BDT fault.) Our guide was full of...More

We went on Monday, early afternoon. There were no issues with traffic. If it’s cool or windy day, take a jacket because it will be chilly on the tour.
