What to expect

Hop aboard Boston Duck Tours and enjoy a fully narrated, historic tour of Boston in a “DUCK", a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle that travels on land and water. You'll be greeted by one of our legendary ConDUCKtors, who'll be narrating your tour. You’ll cruise by all the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts, from the golden domed state House to the Boston Common, the historic North End to fashionable Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower, and more. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, it’s time for a Big Splash as your ConDUCKtor drives the DUCK right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines. Come and experience the best introDUCKtion to Boston!
