What You Can Expect

Boston Duck Tour

Boston Duck Tour

The Boston Duck Tour covers it all — from the State House in the Beacon Hill neighborhood to Bunker Hill and the TD Garden, home to the Boston Celtics. There’s Boston Common, a public park in downtown Boston and the oldest city park in the United States; Copley Square, a sort of public square in the Back Bay neighborhood; the Big Dig central artery/tunnel project; plus Government Center to Newbury Street, Quincy Market (aka Faneuil Hall Marketplace) to the Prudential Tower and more.

That’s a lot, but that’s not all. It’s time for the duck to float — with a splashdown into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines.

Important note: All foreign language tours depart from Prudential Center.

An excellent and different way to see the city. Our driver was witty, knowledgeable and helpful. This was consistent with everyone we met from going on the 'T' to finding excellent eating places. I would recommend this tour anytime.

We had a great time and the Duck boat driver was really cool. She let me grandson drive the duck and he is still talking about it weeks later.
Will definitely tell all my friends to take the time and take a ride.

This was a great experience. Our tour guide Mack the Quack told us about the history of Boston and pointed out to us all of the main landmarks of Boston. He even gave me the opportunity to navigate the boat when we were in the water which I am so grateful for. This tour is well worth doing. Have done 1 in San Francisco, but this one was by far the best I have done to date. Would recommend this tour to others

The guide was very knowledgable on all things Boston. He made some good suggestions on things to see after the tour. Would do the tour again.
