Don't be weary when I tell you you'll be taking a stroll around town in a D.U.C.K. Now calm down, there aren't any quackers on this tour, but you sure will be greeted by your own personal, legendary conDUCKtor.

Yes this a classic. And yes, you've heard of the Duck Tours before. But have you actually taken a ride on a duck boat?

Make like one of our championship Teams and head over for a ride!

But for those of you living under a rock and not quite sure what a Duck Tour is, here goes:

"Cruise by all the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts, from the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill and the TD Banknorth Garden, Boston Common and Copley Square to the Big Dig, Government Center to fashionable Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower, and more"

And ohhh, before I forget to tell you, you may want to bring a bathing suit because your duck for the day is going swimming! OK, so no, you aren't really going to get wet, but we all know ducks can't resist water AKA get ready to roll right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines! And for all of you non-swimmers, have no fear!! This duck of a ride is actually a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle. (cool, right?)
