Can't decide between a trolley tour of Boston's historical sights or a view of the city from the Charles River? You don't have to! The Boston Duck Tour gives you the best of both worlds, with 60 minutes on land and 20 minutes splashing along the river!
This week, the premier travel review site, Trip Advisor revealed the results of its first-ever Travelers’ Choice Awards based on the input of real travelers/Trip Advisor reviewers.
The Boston Duck Tour ranked No. 8 on the list of top 10 experiences in the U.S. for its unique take on the run-of-the-mill guided city tour.
“Boston is best seen by land and water, and this duck tour takes travelers from Boston Common to the Charles River on a single excursion, all while riding in a rolling, floating piece of American military history,” TripAdvisor wrote. “Traveling by vintage, World War II amphibious vehicle, travelers will see beloved Boston neighborhoods from city streets and the river.”
The signature "DUCK" amphibious landing vehicle traces its history back to WWII when the allies created a half boat/half truck that could run on land and water, allowing them to unload supplies directly onto the beach. The vehicles were code-named DUKW, which eventually became "DUCK".
Duck Tours launch from three convenient Boston locations - the Prudential Center, Museum of Science and the New England Aquarium.
As you cruise past landmarks like the State House, Beacon Hill, TD Garden, Boston Common, Copley Square, the Big Dig, Government Center, Newbury Street, Quincy Market and the Prudential Tower, your ConDUCKtor® will fill you in on the little known facts and interesting insights that make Boston special.
Finally, it’s time for “Splashdown” as your amphibious vehicle plunges right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines!
No wonder the Boston Duck Tour is considered Boston's number one tour and a Trip Advisor favorite!
