The Boston Duck Tours are excellent! Coast Guard licensed captains are well versed in Boston lore and history and do a super job of providing just the right amount of commentary without droning on and on. We have taken a Boston Duck Tour before (from the Prudential Center) and saw a new part of Boston leaving from the port. Excellent value and tons of fun - especially when quacking at other Duck Tour vessels. Read Less

The ship was supposed to dock until 2 PM, which I already thought was a late start. Because of issues with the propulsion motor and headwinds, we did not actually dock until 4 PM, causing many of the excursions to be cancelled. My Freedom Trail walking tour was cancelled, but I was able to get on the Boston Duck tour. The guide was informative, interesting, and funny. The tour gave a good overview of the city, but not an in-depth one as the vehicle was moving most of the time. The best part was when the truck became a boat and we drove into the Charles River. Overall, the excursion felt rushed with no time for lingering or getting souvenirs. Because all of the passengers were on just a few tours, there was a huge backup returning to the ship. Carnival did open a second gangplank, but it did not help those of us already waiting in line Read Less

We travelled by Duck, an old military vechile that one can drive or go into the water. It was fantastic to drive into Lake Charles. Boston is clean and great.

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. Read Less

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.
Sail Date: October 2013
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!
