Quack! Quack! Boston Duck Tours

by James

When it comes to having a little fun when relatives or friends come for a summer visit, we of course always have to go to downtown Boston. Boston is a very old and historical city, filled with quite a few attractions, quaint pubs, restaurants and tons of stores to go shopping in.

I have found one of the best attractions that show you around Boston while also giving you some history and fun facts is the Boston Duck Tours. You board one of the original DUKWs amphibious vehicles, used during World War ll that the company restored , that go on land and water and start the tour.

The tour guides, who are called ConDucktors, are very informative and personable as you drive around Boston. You drive by many historical buildings while everyone is quacking at you from the streets and you are quacking back.

Then when you think the tour is over you have the "splashdown". This is where the Duck heads into the Charles River. You get another look at the Boston skyline. They usually let one of the young tourists drive the boat at this time.

The Boston Duck tours are good for both the young and the old. I have been on this tour a few times and I always walk away learning something new about Boston.
