What you can expect

Explore Beantown with a hilarious ConDUCKtor® in a newly built amphibious vehicle. Ride the DUCK by downtown landmarks like Faneuil Hall and the Freedom Trail, and then ease into the water for a scenic cruise along the waterfront of the Charles River.

Climb aboard the open-air DUCK and take a seat as your ConDUCKtor sets off for a quacks- and laughs-filled tour of Boston by land and by sea. Pass by the gold-domed State House, ride past the fashionable shops of elegant Newbury Street, check out the food vendors of Quincy Market, and gaze up at Bunker Hill’s monument to the famous Revolutionary War battle that took place there.

Break out in song as you pass the pub where Cheers was filmed—everybody there may not know your name, but you definitely know the tune. See the Old State House, the location that the declaration of Independence was first read on July 18, 1776.

From there, splash into the river and putter along the Charles River, the body of water that seperates Boston from euqally as historical Cambridge. Home of Harvard adn MIT. Admire the Boston and Cambridge skylines and listen as your drive and guide shares entertaining tidbits, little-known facts, and entertaining anecdotes about the city’s nearly 400-year-old past.
