The Boston Duck Tour covers it all—from the State House in the Beacon Hill neighborhood to Bunker Hill and the TD Garden, home to the Boston Celtics. There’s Boston Common, a public park in downtown Boston and the oldest city park in the United States; Copley Square, a sort of public square in the Back Bay neighborhood; the Big Dig central artery/tunnel project; plus Government Center to Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower and more.

That’s a lot, but that’s not all. It’s time for the duck to float—with a splashdown into the Charles River for a view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines.

Bonus: enjoy free tickets to other top Boston experiences including a free weekday tour of Harvard University, free weekday tour of MIT, and a free Tea Tasting at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum.

Important note: Multi-lingual audio guides available from Prudential Center and Museum of Science departures only.

My parents, boyfriend and I really enjoyed the tour with our guide Professor Quackenstein and captain Andy. It was my boyfriend’s first time to Boston and it was a wonderful way to be able to show it so much of the city. As MA residents ourselves, we also learned so much about our City we had not known before. Our guide was friendly, funny and informative. We would definitely recommend this tour.
