Loved it. We took a cab from the ship. ($25) Seats a bit too small but our driver/duck guide, Mack was great. Lots of history. Fun to drive into the river. He let the children on the boat actually steer while in water. They seemed to enjoy. Cab back to ship was only $17. Go figure.

It was an interesting tour both on land and sea. Our tour guide was PJ & she was very upbeat and kept us well informed while injecting a lot of humor. The duck was comfortable and all were able to see. It was an interesting tour as well as enjoyable. A nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Wow what a town Boston is! So much history and sights. Our tour guide called himself the "Codfather" and was most interesting , fun, and knowledgable of the history The Duck went into the Charles River and we did a little tour on the water and he let anyone who wanted to drive the duck. If wanted he would drop you at Quincy's square and you could taxi or shuttle back at about $12 per person or you could hoof it in 40 minutes. Boston is like NYC on a smaller scale, lots of buildings, no parking, lot of traffic and people. Enjoyed this excursion a lot.

Horrible heavy rain and traffic, but the tour turned out to be a good choice under the circumstances. Nice ride on the Charles River and the driver allowed those who wanted to steer the boat in the water the chance to do so.

This was a fun trip. We only drove by the sights and got a small view of this beautiful town. We choose this due to lack of walking mobility with my Dad. Good choice if you have problems walking.

We took a Duck Tour in Boston which was a couple of hours long and focused mainly on the historical sites around the city. Since this is not really my "thing" I found it really boring; however, my husband really enjoyed it.

Boston - We did the duck tour and our driver/tour guide was funny, knowledgeable and we saw many sites. We chose to get off @ Faniel Hall and The Quincy Market - Great place to see history and eat lunch! We bought a bus ticket back to the pier ahead of time, but when boarding the bus, we realized that they let anyone with a Princess cruisecard on the bus for a ride back to the pier - $20 wasted!
