We did this as a family (2 adults, 2 boys age 9 and 11). Their guides are 'characters' in every sense - we had Flo and she was hilarious with a wit and self deprecating humour... read more

We did this as a family (2 adults, 2 boys age 9 and 11). Their guides are 'characters' in every sense - we had Flo and she was hilarious with a wit and self deprecating humour that was tasteful and fun. While delivered in a light hearted way, it is still informative and will certainly help you get your bearings... More

We are from Massachusetts and have gone to Boston a ton of times, this time we took the Duck Tours and was surprised to see the city from a very different point of view. It was interesting to see the city by water and the by the road. This was money well spent and provided my family with a different... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor as well. It is a great way to get a high level overview of Boston, hitting many of the high points. It allowed us to get off the tour and then decide "what next". We were able to navigate the city on foot to go back and see... More

my wife and I decided to take the duck tour because we had taken another tour on a bus and were disappointed with that tour. The duck tour was much better and the operator was dressed up as a pirate and was very knowledgeable and had a lot of personality. We would recommend this tour and driver.

lots of people suggested me that I take a Duck Tour. At first I thought it would be a total waste of money because I know that I would have a better chance of I go on a tour of my own. However, that all changed when I give a chance. I would later get one the best tours that... More

My daughter and I had a great time on Veterans Day on our Duck Tour. We booked ours at the Museum in Cambridge. Check-in was fast and efficient. Our tour guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining. He was especially accommodating to the many children that happened to be on our tour. I highly recommend a Duck Tour when in Boston.

We go to Boston a lot. One time we went to just get away so we decided to try and do tourist things that we never do. So we signed up for a Duck Tour. We had a great tour guide which I am sure makes all the difference! It was fun to ride about in the water/land car and... More

We had a wonderful tour guide who refused to give his name! He is a real team player for the duck tours! He was very lively and went by the name Empty Buckets! He did very well with tourist, young and old alike! I felt like I was getting a fun, comedic history lesson. This was my first Duck Tour... More

When I was planning our trip to Boston, my 10 year old son asked if we could ride the Duck across the Charles River. He had seen it on a You Tube Video. I had actually done a lot of research on kids activities in Boston, and had not come across the Boston Duck. So I went online and booked... More

First time in Boston! This was a great tour! We had a fantastic guide, "Super Fan".... he was so knowledgeable and so much fun. I think our only complaint was that we shared our tour with middle school students who were obnoxious before we took off but "Super Fan" was such a "Dad" and handled them with such grace that...

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.
