Boston Duck Tours
A fleet of "Ducks", brightly colored, vintage World War II amphibious vehicles provide narrated, half-land, half-water tours of Boston. Do not be alarmed when your Duck abandons its wheels and lowers itself onto the Charles River! Tours cover many of Boston's downtown tourist attractions famous spots like the State House and the Prudential Tower. Keep in mind, Tour guides encourage quacking! Tickets sell out quickly, especially on summer weekends. So go and quack away with Boston Duck Tours.
This is an incredible way to get a wonderful view of the city along with an interesting Tour Guide. It not only is historically interesting, but also entertaining to drive up the roads and the Charles River in an amphibious vehicle. Well worth the money and time!! You can pick it up at the Prudential building and kill two birds with one stone in your sight seeing tours!
Bottom line, it's targeted towards kids. I grew up in Boston and spent most of my life there. I live out west now and decided to take a trip to Boston and do some sightseeing with my girlfriend. I thought the duck tour would be fun. She thought it was stupid for the first 20 min. She lightened up along the way. The kids on our tour talked and screamed the whole time. It was hard to hear the driver. It wasn't worth the time and price. If you don't have kids and want to take a city tour, take the trolley tour. It's meant for adults.
We loved the Duck Tour, our driver was great, he allowed some of the kids aboard to have a drive, and the information he gave us about Boston was terrific. Book at least 2 days before your tour just to make sure you don't miss out if you are on a tight schedule. I can't believe I quacked on a tour, the day we did it I turned 50 so won't forget it for a while. Boston is a great city.
This tour had potential, but our tour guide was very hard to understand, and more focused on Boston sports than on an informative tour of Boston. I suspect the satisfied customers in this forum had a different "conducktor" -- the quality of the tour guide makes or breaks this tour.
I was in Boston on business and was only able to stay 1 extra day for sight seeing. I learned about the duck tours online and am so glad that I took a tour on my free day! I was able to see and learn about so much in the 1 1/2 hour tour. I would have not been able to see all of those sights on my own. I would suggest this tour to anyone who has a short time or even as a starting point to a vacation. I saw several places I would have gone back to if I had more time!
An amazing way to see the majority of Boston. The water part was spectacular and really fun. Though it could have been a tad longer. Also very fun captains that make you quack at passer bys on the street. =D
