Perfect for families touring Boston 6/8/2011

When my family visits me in Boston, they love to go sightseeing. The first tour I ever took them on was a duck tour. We had a lot of fun. The tour guide was very friendly and so was the crowd. The most amazing part about these tours is that it's not just on land - you're literally riding on a boat with wheels! Quack, quack! more

Quack Quack Great Time by All 9/7/2009

I would highly recommed these duck tours to locals and tourists alike. Our tour guide was great. Funny funny funny man. Everyone was super relaxed and enjoyed themselves. Great crowds and boy, was it crowded. I bought a quacker and could not help myself. I blew on that thing like the rest of our crowd the entire ride. My cheecks hurt when we were done we had so much fun. Pros: Fun more

Fun ride, but not a tour 6/8/2009

I was expecting a tour. I got a ride. Don't get me wrong, it was enjoyable, but if you are looking for the history and sights of Boston, this is not for you. If you are looking for a ride around town and boat tour with a guy cracking jokes. This is for you. Pros: the river ride Cons: It's not a tour more

Great land/water tour of Boston 1/20/2009

If you can?t decide between a water or land tour of Beantown, Boston?s World Famous Duck Tour is for you. The unique tours are conducted in World War II amphibious landing vehicles called ?ducks.? They are like boats with wheels that have funny names like Back Bay Bertha, Fenway Fannie and Tub of the Hub. The tour narrators, called ConDUCKtors, are hilarious. Guide Major Tom Foolery wears Superman pajamas while he drives; Cmdr. James Bernard Swampscott sets the ground rules by stating ?no smoking and no ballroom dancing? on board; and all drivers encourage passengers to quack at pedestrians during the ride. But the guides are even more knowledgeable than they are funny, continually delivering interesting facts about Boston?s history. The 80-minute tour hits all of Boston?s hotspots: the golden-domed State House; Bunker Hill; Boston Common; Copley Square; the Big Dig; Government Center; trendy Newbury Street; Quincy Market; Prudential Tower and more. Then comes the highlight as the duck drives straight into the Charles River for beautiful seaside views of Cambridge and Boston. The ConDUCKtors even let passengers steer the boat while it?s in the water. For a site-seeing trip you?ll never forget that will make you laugh while teaching you about the city, the Duck tour does not disappoint. more

Fantastic. 8/6/2008

This was a real highlight of the trip. The best tour I've ever taken. I know its kinda silly, but it was truly a lot of fun and getting to see the city from the water and from land really gives you a full picture. They guides are fun and informative. I knew this city had a lot of history, but I learned all kinds of new things and in an fun interesting way. \r \r Quack! more

Fun for natives and tourists alike 7/3/2008

For tourists, this voyage by land and sea in converted, multi-terrain WWI-era vehicles provides basic and also some quirky info about the city. For natives, it?s fun to go on this tour after having people quack at you day and day out. Spots visited include Back Bay, Government Center and the Charles River. The trip is definitely worth the price of admission. more

Really fun 10/28/2006

I took this tour in June, so the weather was great, but it was enjoyable, perfect for all ages, and interactive! The locals ""quack"" at the boat as you pass, and the ""captain"" was funny, he asked for volunteers to steer, and the kids who volunteered got a surprise sticker set. (at the end of the tour the captain gave all kids whether they steered or didn't steer a set of stickers too) Pros: Fun Cons: A boat tour so inclement weather would be bad more

Not enough of the city on Tour 7/25/2005

Doesn't hit all the locations but not bad for the price. Fun for the kids and not to long of a tour. The guides are entertaining and had lots of ""tidbits"" information about the city kept you involved. I agree with someone who mentioned to purchase tickets early as they do tend to sell out. Also we did the later afternoon tour it was cooler and not so much traffic to sit in. I don't know if you get a choice as to where they take you like other tours but this one was sort of ""superficial"" to me.. but I'm a Bostonian by Birth. They also seat first come first serve so be sure to get there early for best seats on vehicle. If you sit in the rear you may get wet, but you should expect this you are on a tour ""boat"" essentially lol. Pros: affordable price, Fun tour guides Cons: not much of the city, can get wet more

Quack Quack 11/20/2002

The tour guide really quacked me up, but didn't show a lot of knowledge. I was a little bit peeved when the car/vehicle/boat/thing broke down and we had to drift to the banks of the Charles - good thing we weren't far off shore. more

If it walks like a duck... 8/7/2002

For a quick, fun and family friendly tour of The Hub, Duck Tours is the place to go. The tour guides are a riot, loaded with interesting factoids about Boston, past and present, from the Revolutionary War to the Big Dig. This trip has it all - history, scandal and the largest engineering project in the history of man. Pros: entertaining, great for all ages Cons: parking, expensive more
