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 and famous spots like the State House and the Prudential Tower. Keep in mind, tour guides encourage quacking! Tours depart from three different locations, the Museum of Science , Prudential Center and New England Aquarium . Tickets sell out quickly, especially on summer weekends, so remember to book early.
This has got to be one of the most touristy things to do in Boston but really one of the most fun!! My parents recommended it and everyone loved it; kids, teenagers, adults and whatever I left out. Be sure to get your picture taken. The boat pilots are hilarious and you really see things that you would never see any other way
The duck tours are great! Not only do you get to see historical sites on the land, but you get a boatride's view of the skyline too!
Our driver was so fun and friendly, we didn't want to get off when the tour was over! The only negative part was waiting for the tour - we had to purchase tickets 2 days ahead because they were booked solid, and on the day of our tour, we had to arrive an hour early to get in line! Other than that, the tour was fantastic! Great for families and children! The driver even let some kids drive the boat!
The whole experience was great! MAJOR TOM, our "conducktor" was very knowledgeable & funny. He would stop so we could take pictures when the "duck" wasn't moving, and in one instance even took a picture for one of the riders! A must-do in Boston!
My family didn't know about the duck tours until we got into town, we saw them moving about town and we thought they looked fun and then when we saw one in the water we were like "Wow, you get a little bit of everything, don't you?" We had our Go Boston Cards (value pass for Boston attractions) and I was thrilled to see the card was included. We saw the whole city, my children thought it was funny and it was nice to be on the water on a hot day!
ive lived here my whole life im 11 and we never have good field trips but in third we went on the duck tours at first i was afraid about going on the charles river but i had so much fun ill go on boats I CANT WAIT TO GO ON THE DUCK TOURS AGAIN ILL GO ON 999,999,999,999 TIMES IT WAS SO MUCH FUN I LOVED IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We used the go boston card to get on the duck tour, it was a fun quirky ride in an all-weather wwII vehicle. the day we went was sunny, with a slight breeze. We boarded the duck at the museum of science and afterward visited the star wars exhibit. the ride was wonderful, we went all around the city, learned a lot of interesting things and the kids loved it. Then we ended the ride in the charles river. I felt like i got to see bunch of stuff. We used the Go Boston Card to get on the ride which was a great value, but make sure you get there early, we were advised that the rides tend to fill up during peak times.
This is really an amazing adventure.At the begining before getting into that car-boat you have the felling that that wasn't such a good idea.You can take photos,they do that for you for 20$-25$(this was the price in 2004).The whole race is coordonated by the driver that is also an enetertainer.He talks to all the people, laughs, makes even the sadest person have a great time.The thing that makes all the money is when the car changes into a boat and floats on Charles River,.Eventually the entire race is a fun way to visit the city and see all the important places that you could miss during your trip.
The Boston Duck tour is by far the best duck tour I have ever taken, and I've taken a fair few! The guide was hillarious, and informative. He had an awesome Bostonian accent, and by the time I left the tour I had fallen in love with the city. He pointed out the obvious sites, but also showed us a dunkin donuts with a sushi bar! Only in Bahstun!
This was our first time in Boston and we purchased our Duck Tour tickets off the internet. This was some of the best money we spent! What a great way to see Boston! Our driver was very entertaining and everyone on the boat seemed to have a good time. This was my favorite part of the trip!
