Tours and Tickets by Boston Duck Tours
Boston is best seen by land and water, and this duck tour takes you from Boston Common to the Charles River on a single excursion, all while riding in a rolling, floating piece of American military history. Traveling by vintage, World War II amphibious vehicle, see beloved Boston neighborhoods from city streets and the river, avoiding the hassle and expense of navigating public transit or finding scarce Boston parking.

The tour was good but Paprika made it great. Silly and funny, we loved her. Our 17 year old daughter who normally has to be drug on a tour even loved it! Ask for Paprika!
