Our guide had a dry and quiet sense of humor which I appreciated. I dont like guides to be way over the top. They covered most of the important historical sites, but the water part was a little uneventful. Basically just did a circle in the harbor. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about just about everything from the art in the gardens to tidbits of info about the deceased in the cemeteries.

The Duck Tour is a great way to see the city and I would recommend doing this on the first day of arrival to give you a good Introduction / overview of the city. Also I’d recommend doing this tour during the evening as you’ll be able to enjoy seeing Boston in lights!

What a great way to learn about the history of Boston! Mack our guide was super knowledgeable, funny, and very friendly. Todd, our driver, impressed my husband and I on how easily he navigated the Duck through the narrow, busy streets.

Our duck overheated but the staff was very professional about switching ducks and continuing our tour. This was my second time on a duck and I would Absolutely do it again.

Our tour guide was amazing: personable, knowledgeable, and so funny she could have done stand up! Thank you. It was a great way to kick start our vacation.
