Click through for our Boston hot spots!

Boston Ducks Tour

If you want a light-hearted, fact-filled tour of Boston, then climb aboard a Duck. This quacky tour hits dozens of the highlights on land and on the water. It’s a lot for the youngest ones to take in, but they will enjoy shouting out a quack or two, and the chance to view the city from the Charles River once the Duck makes a splashdown. There is even the possibilities that a volunteer or two will get a chance to get behind the wheel of that amphibious vehicle for a short stint. The tours last for about an hour on land and 20 minutes on the water.

Good to know: Book a 9 or 9:30 a.m. tour online and you can save a few bills.

Tours begin at three locations:

Museum of Science Tour departs from the front of the museum, next to the giant T-Rex

The Prudential Center 53 Huntington Ave.

The New England Aquarium
1 Central Wharf
