    I may technically be a tourist, but Boston Duck Tours are a must for anyone who ever visits Boston or even lives there. It’s such a fun experience that balances fun and history, giving you tons of places you want to visit for a longer period of time. Sure, you’re flying by landmarks, but the guides are so very knowledgeable. The boats are a bit cramped but there’s nothing like taking part of the quacking experience. Go in warmer weather to truly appreciate the Charles River portion.

    I love the Boston Duck Tour! I’ve taken the tour twice and find it to be the best way to see all the “tourist” spots in the city. The fact that the boat takes a dip into the Charles River is even better, providing beautiful vantage points of both Boston and Cambridge. The “conducktors” are definitely informative and entertaining throughout the tour. In fact, it’s safe to say they’re just downright funny! I’ve only done the tour that departs from Prudential Center as I think it’s the most comprehensive tour (90 minutes). This is a must – I can’t recommend it enough.

    I took 3 customers yesterday for a “Duck Tour”. We had Will Shakespeare on “Carla”. He gave an AWESOME tour, his knowledge was superb…and his humor – the best! I’ve been on other tours, but, this was by far my favorite. The con-duck-tour made the trip!! Thank you!

    We had a great time on the duck tour with Will Shakespeare. He was funny and knowledgeable plus very entertaining. Also his knowledge of elephants is top notch especially when it comes to bridge dynamics so if you get him make sure to test this knowledge. I would recommend this to anyone going to Boston as a must do.

    Having a free afternoon before my flight home after business; I took the tour from the waterfront. The duck was about 30 minutes late leaving but I had a two hour cushion before my plane. The street portion of the tour went smoothly but when we got to the ramp for the waterfront portion, things went bad. The boat handling by the crew was really poor and we bounced off the rocks trying to get underway for quite a while. Then the “captain”, if you want to be gracious in calling him that, let four different kids drive the duck in circles in a turn basin and no “touring” was done. Those of us without children present were fuming. We then returned to the ramp, without seeing anything of importance, where we spent about 15 more minutes trying to get on and up the ramp due to the poor performance and inept handling of the vessel in the low tide situation. (I am a USCG licensed 200 ton Merchant Marine Captain, and a sailing captain of many international voyages,so I believe I am qualified to make these comments.) My associate and I had to get off the duck and get a cab back to our rental car and try to make our flight – which we missed by 10 minutes. A $300.00 combined ticket change fee later got us stuck in Dallas where we overnighted $$$$$ before our flight home the following morning. That plus the $30+ dollar per person ticket for the tour made it an expensive and awful experience. Beware the duck if you have any type schedule and its just not worthwhile, period.
