Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This is a popular, 'must-do' tour in Boston! Call the supplier after purchase to secure your seats and time for your selected date as tours frequently sell out.
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 view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines.
Important note: All foreign language tours depart from 53 Huntington Ave.

If you have been to Boston before and want to see it in a new way this is the trip for you. What an adventure riding in the Duck boat. We traveled around seeing different sites and then we ventured into the Charles River to see Boston from a different vantage point. Our guide "Dirty Waters" kept up a constant banter of facts and fun information to make the tour even more fun. The tour last about 80 minutes and was just the right amount of time.
Great way to see Boston for out of towners. I've always wanted to do a Duck tour, and it was worth it. Learned some good history, saw sights from the water, and enjoyed the Duck jokes. Definitely worth the 1 1/2 hours. Reccommend to everyone, especially families with kids.
Enjoyed the tour. It was difficult to locate the National Museum of Science where the duck tour departs from. The tour guide was interesting and very knowledgable but a bit hyper!
I was on the duck tour in London and I found that tour of a higher standard and definately more informative.
It was a beautiful day which added to the enjoyment. I would recommend.
As a Boston native, I have done the Duck Tours multiple times whenever I have guests from out of town. This time our friends from Ohio came to explore the city and LOVED the history lesson they learned from our guide. ADDED BONUS: I FINALLY GOT TO DRIVE A DUCK BOAT! lifelongdream
