We all know that the best way to see a city is to take a tour of it. But what about a tour of the city AND the river? Well, Boston Duck Tours does both - in the one vehicle!
Boston Duck Tours gets you aboard their very cool DUCK vehicle from 3 locations around the city - either the Museum of Science, New England Aquarium or the Prudential Center.
You will spot your vehicle - just look for the WWII style amphibious landing vehicle! This very cool vehicle not only takes you around the city on land, but then just drives straight into the water to sail you away down the Charles River - now THAT is cool!
The land tour will take you on a journey through the interesting areas of Boston, with a historic commentary to tell you all the very fun facts about this great city. You can find out why Boston is the birthplace of freedom, and a city of firsts!
Then, you splashdown onto the river for some breathtaking views of the Boston and Cambridge skyline, and even if you live in the city, there is always something new to experience in your own home town!
The sights you might encounter, depending on your departure location, include the New England Aquarium, Beacon Hill, the West End, the Holocaust Museum, Hancock Tower, Granary Burying Ground, just to name a few!
So sit back and enjoy this unique tour for around 80 minutes in your day, before you explore what else the city has to offer. What else is there, you ask? (Just search this site for more!) so have an amphibious family day out in Boston with Boston Duck Tours!
