Water is no barrier for a duck, why should it be for you? A Boston Duck Tour is a wonderful way to get a great look at Boston on land and water. See all the major landmarks and hear the history of the city as you tour Boston in a renovated World War II amphibious vehicle.

Highlights

  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Ideal choice for families
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Great overview and orientation of the city

You've never toured Boston in anything that comes close to Boston Duck Tour! The fun begins as soon as you board your "DUCK", an authentic, renovated World War II amphibious landing vehicle. First, you'll be greeted by one of their legendary tour ConDUCKtors, who'll be narrating your tour. Then you're off on a journey like you've never had before.

You'll cruise by all the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts, from the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill and the Fleet Center, Boston Common and Copley Square to the Big Dig, Government Center to fashionable Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower, and more. And, as the best of Boston unfolds before your eyes, your ConDUCKtor will be giving you lots of little known facts and interesting insights about our unique and wonderful city.

And just when you think you've seen it all, there's more. It's time for "Splashdown" as your ConDUCKtor splashes your DUCK right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines, the kind of view you just won't get anywhere else.

So take the ride of your life. Hop on a Boston Duck Tour!

The tour was terrific. The driver was great and we really enjoyed it. The only downside which has nothing to do with the Duck Tour was getting around Boston. My GPS did not work, due to all of the construction and one way streets. But we missed our originally scheduled time, but the company let us go on a later tour. THANK YOU!!!! It was my grandson's birthday and he had a great time.

We took the tour out of the science museum. Getting tickets was a fast and easy process. We are so glad that we started our Boston visit with a Duck Tour. It was highly recommended to us and now I know why. We didn't know that much about Boston before the tour so we wanted to get a good overview before exploring the city. The tour was 80 minutes long and took us around both the streets and the waterway. It was so cool to see it from both perspectives. We learned about the city's history and the various sections of Boston, and we also got a sense for the layout and how to get around to make the most of our visit in a limited amount of time. Our driver, Plucky Ruffles, was awesome! Plucky, who was quite the comedian, was very engaging with all of the passengers and even gave the kids a turn steering the vehicle on the water. Plucky was very receptive to all questions and was very knowledgeable about the city as well as the vehicle we were riding in. Getting on and off the vehicle was easy and fast, and I didn't feel any pressure to buy the photos they were offering as a souvenir. I would highly recommend the tour to everyone.
