Overview
Boston is best seen by land and water, and this duck tour takes you from Boston Common to the Charles River on a single excursion, all while riding in a rolling, floating piece of American military history. Traveling by vintage, World War II amphibious vehicle, see beloved Boston neighborhoods from city streets and the river, avoiding the hassle and expense of navigating public transit or finding scarce Boston parking.

What to Expect

Roll from the historic State House in Beacon Hill to Boston Common, Copley Square, Newbury Street, and Quincy Market, also known as the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Those are the big names, but there is a lot to see along the way, and the guide points out the most interesting landmarks and share stories from Boston history. You also see TD Garden, home of the Boston Celtics, and Bunker Hill, site of a key Revolutionary War-era battle. Roll to the edge of the Charles River, then continue into the water to see Boston and Cambridge from the river. The tour wraps up at the original departure point, where you are walking distance from some of Boston’s top attractions. Bonus: enjoy free tickets to other top Boston experiences including a free weekday tour of Harvard University, free weekday tour of MIT, and a free Tea Tasting at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. Important note: Multi-lingual Audio Guides available from Prudential Center and Museum of Science departures only.
