Would recommend doing the duck tour, the tour guide was full of knowledge about Boston history and the sights we seen along the tour. Good to have land and river guide all on one tour as they take the tour along the Charles river.

I really enjoyed this tour as our guide Dirty Waters was very knowledgeable and entertaining. My highlight was getting to steer the duck when it was in the river!

Review of: Boston Duck Tour

I heard a lot about these tours and it met my expectations. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained the entire time. They even let the young kids steer the boat when we got in the water which they really enjoyed.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice

We went on Monday, early afternoon. There were no issues with traffic. If it’s cool or windy day, take a jacket because it will be chilly on the tour.
