Boston Duck Tours take you on a unique adventure - a sure winner when you want to combine sightseeing with fun!
Each brightly-painted Boston Duck tour vehicle has its own name celebrating the city's cherished heritage: Red Sox Nation, Faneuil Holly, Haymarket Hannah, just to name a few.Once aboard your Duck-mobile, you'll cruise through several of the city's most historic neighborhoods - Downtown, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Charlestown.
Have your camera ready, because Boston duck boat tours show you why this is the Birthplace of Liberty . . . your "duck" will take you past the Bunker Hill Monument, Faneuil Hall, the golden-domed Massachusetts State House.
You'll also see stunning Victorian mansions, glitzy shops along Newbury Street, Copley Square, and plenty of tantalizing restaurants that you can return to later.
Exuberant Duck Tour "ConDUCKtors" - Captain Courageous, Admiral Amnesia, and Colonial Duct Tape, to name a few - entertain you along the way with witty and interesting commentary about Boston's history, attractions, and little known events.
The most exciting moment comes when you "splash down" into the Charles River! Suddenly, you're water-borne.
You'll see the Boston Esplanade, bridges, and city skylines on both sides of the river from a unique perspective.
In particular, be sure to notice the ornate details on the bridges, wildlife habitat along the shore lines, and the friendly ducks, like the ones in the above photo, who may want to swim along with you. Be sure to bring your camera!
Sure, the Boston Duck Tours offer visitors a terrific introduction to Boston - but you'll see as many locals on the vehicles as tourists, and sometimes more. We go on duck tours to celebrate promotions, birthdays, graduations, or friendship while enjoying a cruise through the city and down the river on a beautiful spring, summer, or autumn day.
Although . . . you don't actually get to just sit back and go for a ride. Some of the ConDUCTors strongly encourage you to "quack" at people on the street. And sometimes, the people on the street quack back. At the very least, they usually wave. Of course, you don't have to quack. But it's a lot of fun. After all, how often do you normally get to quack at strangers?
Even better, some ConDUCTors let you steer the boat...after all the kids who want to try it get a turn.
