Laugh and Learn as You Tour Historic Boston on Land and Water
What's a Duck Tour? Good question! You'll tour Boston's roads and waters in a "Duck," a World War II-era amphibious craft. Your tour guide, a.k.a. the ConDUCKtor, will teach you a thing or two about this historic city and tell a few jokes that will quack you up, too.
We learned, for example, that the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest and most prestigious race: the only marathon that requires participants to qualify. Chief Petty Officer Duck Pin also explained that "Boston baked beans are a huge part of Boston's culinary history," and each can of Boston baked beans has exactly 239 beans. "If we add one more bean, it would be too fahty," he quipped in his Boston accent.
Boston Duck Tours (Book Now) depart daily mid-March through November and Friday through Sunday in December from the Prudential Center, daily year-round from the Museum of Science and daily April through October from the New England Aquarium.
These photos from our June 2007 Boston visit provide a sense of the Boston Duck Tours experience.
Boston Duck Tours are a fun way to see this historic city.
