Our commentator-Milk-was very knowledgeable about everything in Boston-the land portion was very informative and the water portion-in the Charles River was relaxing. Would definitely recommend-just try to book in advance as they practice distancing in the bus and they fill up fast.

Amazing customer service!! Jack in the ticket office was professional and personable! Jack provided my family with outstanding customer service! He was so accommodating in explaining to our family the departure times. The guru and the driver were equally impressive!! So much fun! Book your tickets in advance if possible!

Wanted something to do today (Labor Day) to get us outside and a quick day trip. We decided on a Boston Duck Tour. We picked the one that leaves from the Museum of Science as it is easy for us to get to. It did not disappoint. Professor Quackenstein and Capt. Howie were friendly, professional, knowledgeable and engaging. I would recommend this to both native residents and tourists.

This was so much fun - we had the Wheel Man for our guide and he was hilarious and informative. COVID-19 adherence was great and the tour felt very safe. Such a neat way to see Boston - would highly recommend! Note though that if you buy these tix on TripAdvisor you still have to call Boston Duck Tours to get a time slot. Buying the tix here doesn’t guarantee you a spot!

Don't waste your money on this tour. Take the trolley instead. The tour guide needs to give more facts about the scenery and less jokes. he just wasn't funny.
