Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

Boston Duck Tours are routinely named the No. 1 tour in the city for good reason. These WWII-style amphibious landing vehicles offer quite a ride through Boston’s most historic sites. They’re the best way to check out all the attractions while gaining great insight into their historical significance.


There are two tours available, both of which cover most of the prominent sites of the city. The first, beginning at the Prudential Center and the Museum of Science, passes by the New Old South Church and Beacon Hill before hitting the Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge and diving straight into the Charles River for terrific views of the Boston skyline. Alternatively, you can head out from the New England Aquarium and tour along the Wharf District, before making your way over to the Boston Commons and Public Gardens. From there you’ll make your way through dozens of other sites before reaching Longfellow Bridge and the Boston Public Market.


The ConDUCKtors are highly trained and knowledgeable about all aspects of the city and provide great insight into each place you’ll visit. Each tour lasts approximately 80 minutes and contains more than 30 noteworthy sites in Boston, though traffic conditions and weather might cause a few changes along the way.


Adult tickets for the Boston Duck Tours cost $42 per person and offer additional perks, including a free weekday tour of Harvard and admission to TD Garden & Boston Sports Museum. You can purchase tickets online or over the phone. Check out the tour website for more information.
