“A relaxing way to view the city”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

The Duck Tour was a relaxing way to view the city. I would recommend it to those who have never visited Boston and do it on your first day in the city. You get a great vision of what the city has to offer and you can plan the rest of your site seeing accordingly. BTW...The 'Duck' driver was amusing.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

I'm sorry but the $70 dollars it cost for myself, my wife and 2 year old to go on a 20 minute drive, 20 minute boat ride and 20 minutes drive back was not worth it.

The boat part was quite good, but nothing fantastic, the conductor was pretty impressive, especially having the handle the traffic, but nothing on the tour was worth the cost.

Not impressed.

“Don't miss!”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

This is a Boston tradition and never disappoints. You get a good overview of Boston history, a tour of downtown and then a short Charles River ride. Great value packed into 80 minutes. Look for discount tickets at several websites but even if you pay full price, it's still a great deal. Guido was our driver and I don't know how he maneuvers that thing thru downtown traffic but he does a great job. We will be taking visitors on it again.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

I've wanted to take a duck boat tour for years. Finally got to do it on a recent trip to Boston. From booking to embarking to disembarking, it was easy, efficient, and fun. Staff were most helpful, friendly, courteous. Having lived in Boston years ago, there were still lots of new things to see and learn about. Highly recommend this tour.
