The BEST!
By Floridian Family Verified Reviewer from Fleming Island, FL on
Pros:
Entertaining, fun, Family friendly

Comments about Smart Destinations Boston Duck Tour - Original:

I am superbly impressed with this tour. On the day we went the river was unstable and were only on land - but they offered for all of us to return for the another/better day and still honor the original tickets. My kids LOVED our guide - Duck Tape-Somebody. He told good jokes, kept it interactive and kept the historical details at the fore front. My kids are 6, 9 and 15. We all had a blast. Worth every penny!
