I would recommend this for couples, families, and friends. Very fun and lots of sites to see. Tour guides were very entertaining. They even let some kids drive the duck!
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, you’ll see beloved Boston neighborhoods from city streets and the river, avoiding the hassle and expense of navigating public transit or finding scarce Boston parking.
Make your way to one of three central locations for departure. Climb into the amphibious vehicle, and then set out overland for a tour of Boston highlights. You’ll roll from the historic State House in Beacon Hill to Boston Common, Copley Square, Newbury Street, and Quincy Market, also known as the Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
Those are the big names, but there’s lots to see along the way, and the guide will point out the most interesting landmarks and share stories from Boston history. You’ll also see TD Garden, home of the Boston Celtics, and Bunker Hill, site of a key Revolutionary War-era battle.
Roll to the edge of the Charles River, then continue into the water to see Boston and Cambridge from river. The tour will wrap up at the original departure point, where you’ll be walking distance from some of Boston’s top attractions.
Please note: All foreign language tours depart from 53 Huntington Ave.

Super expensive and a total waste of time. The narrator more focused on making lame jokes and quacking at passers by than on actually showing us, or talking about , anything substantial. Sure there must be better ways to get a quick introduction to Boston.
A wonderful, fun way to see the highlights of the city! Lots of little pieces of history, some jokes, and tips on other places to visit. Great for kids of all ages! Michelle, in the office, is an angel to help with reservations/questions/ concerns. Easy...More
