Board a WWII-style amphibious landing vehicle, and get ready for a thrilling ride that's sure to make a splash. Children of all ages will love learning about Beantown from a knowledgeable "ConDUCKtor" who makes history quite comical with the addition of humorous stories to liven things up. The tour covers historical sites of the city and is one of the best ways to get an overview of major attractions. Start out on land from one of their three locations then plunge into the Charles River for a unique view of Boston. Kids will especially enjoy quacking at passersby and may even get the chance to drive the DUCK while water bound.
