Boston Duck Tour: The Original and World-Famous

1. Boston Duck Tour: The Original and World-Famous

Make a splash on an 80-minute “Duck” tour of Boston and see the city from the land and water on one non-stop journey. Climb aboard your World War II-style amphibious landing vehicle at the Museum of Science or Prudential Center, and set off to discover unique neighborhoods. You will be welcomed on board by one of the legendary “ConDUCKtors®” who will narrate your tour and tell you about Boston as the birthplace of freedom and place of “firsts.” Travel by the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill, and continue to Boston Common and Copley Square. Hear about the “Big Dig,” and marvel at fashionable Newbury Street. Go to historic Quincy Market, and more. As the best of Boston unfolds, your “ConDUCKtor®” will give you lots of little-known facts and interesting insights into the heritage of the city. Then, just when you think you've seen it all, it's time for a splash into the Charles River. Enjoy views of Boston and Cambridge that you won't get anywhere else. All tours feature a fun, informative local guide. In addition, foreign language tours depart every half hour from the Museum of Science location. These tours utilize cutting-edge GPS technology to offer tours in Spanish, German, French, Mandarin, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian dialect), Cantonese and Korean, at no additional cost to you. If you require this multilingual commentary, be sure to choose the option from the Museum of Science.

This was all my 5 year old talked about before, during and after was the duck boat tour. Our tour guide Skipper the skydiver was delightfully funny, intellectually informative and very professional. It’s a great way to see and learn about the history of Boston and without the headache of doing it yourself. I highly recommend anyone of any age doing this. It was a high point of our trip! ….and because we learned about the Oyster House on the tour, we went and ate there afterwards and were very pleased. So bonus!!

Duck Tracy was amazing at performing as a crime fighter and tour guide all at the same time. The tour was so much fun with fun and entertainment aboard for all ages.

Wonderful tour. We weren’t able to get on the water due to high wind gusts, but the land tour through the city was fabulous. Highly recommended.
