Are tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. His knowledge of the city of Boston and of American history made the tour so enjoyable. The "duck" was a very comfortable way to travel on land and sea. It was warm and comfortable given the outside temperature of 44 degrees F. Total time was 90 minutes. My wife and I always wanted to try the tour so it was nice to finally do it. Next time we will take the kids. We had a blast. Many thanks to our con-duck-tor from Maine who gave up potato farming so he could be a guide.

All of our ConDUCKtors take great pride in showing off the city of Boston in their own unique way. The combination of History and Humor is a win, win. Thank you so much for the glowing review. We hope to see you again!

Absolutely fantastic start to our holiday! So glad we did it on our first morning, as we got to see all the major sites and decide where we'd like to go and explore further afterwards (also helps visually when you get lost on foot later on!)
Our conDUCKtor was fantastic (Pirate...sorry can't remember full name) but he was amusing without being cringy and really knowledgeable.
Sit near the front if you get carsick. I sat at the back and it was fine, but a little bumpy for those who are susceptible to it. Was one of the best things we did in the city. Don't hesitate to book!

Absolutely loved this tour. Our con'duck'tor was Will and he was fantastic, very entertaining and funny. The tour shows most of the main attractions in Boston and and the saying goes '' time flies when your having fun'' The ducks fill up very quickly so get your tickets as soon as you can, we had booked ours on the boston go card and it took ages for the codes on the phone to scan, not a problem unless you have impatient children with you. Tickets are expensive but they are a bit cheaper with the go card.

Having taken a duck tour in Manhattan a few years ago, I persuaded my family to take one here in Boston. Our tour guide was funny without being obnoxious (we've all had those) and very informative. While we did not get the duck bill whistles like the other boats, it was a great tour. By all means take it early in your visit so you still have time to go back and visit places that are pointed out that you hadn't realized you wanted to see!

Great fun no matter what age you are. We were in the hot pink duck, captained by Major Groovy. He was very knowledgeable about Boston, as well as having a fab sense of humour. Duck tours are not to be missed if youre visiting Boston

Thank you, for the 5 star review and the recommendation!

Our ConDUCKtors work very hard to provide an entertaining and historical tour that will appeal to young and old. I am glad you enjoyed the tour, we hope to see you again in the future. Quack Quack
