You've got to love a tour guide who encourages you to quack at passersby (who sometimes quack back). The Boston Duck Tours combine high-energy fun with a unique perspective on all the history that makes Boston a great town. During the 55-minute tour, you'll pass many of Boston's top sights, such as the Old State House, Quincy Market, Bunker Hill, and much more. Then, just when you think you've seen it all, the World War II style landing craft you've been riding in takes you to the edge of the Charles River... and drives right in! Your tour bus becomes a tour boat, and you get a duck's-eye view of Boston and Cambridge from the water.

My kids enjoyed the duck boat tour, they loved everything about it and even got to drive the boat while it was in the water

Comments about Smart Destinations :
We traveled with 4 young kids 12 and under. The so called customer service was no where to be found . The guy who was working with Drew on July 6 at Prudential stop was extremely rude to "explain" the rules on Boston Explorer tickets. Kept telling us to "go away" instead of explaining nicely about the rules. Kept telling my friend to direct her "anger" at someone else even though she wasn't angry and was trying to tell him that we did not see the rules and that was why we came to the stop instead of the Aquarium stop. He just wanted to "shoo" us away and not to deal with us. We commended about that was not the way you should treat the customers or provide customer service. He replied he was not customer service and he does not work for Boston Explorer but Duck Tour. He could care less about assisting anyone. If Duck Tour hires this type of person, the company should not be part of your program at all.
