Boston Classic: Duck Boat Sightseeing Tour

6,179 reviews
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.

We took the sightseeing trolley and part of the route included the Beacon Hill area. If you love historical architecture, this is a place to stroll through. The multi-million dollar brownstone homes with artful wrought-iron fence work are wonderful to take in. Beacon Hill is a must-see area!

The State Capital building here and it is magnificent. But then wander behind it and enjoy the harmonious townhouse architecture in the small neighborhood. Very classy area, all historic preservation.

This is one of the wealthiest and nicest parts of Boston. It has gas lit streets and brick sidewalks. I personally enjoyed walking around and appreciating the architecture. I recommend visiting this neighborhood for a nice walk.
