The Boston Duck Tour - Recommended for those traveling with kids


When we talk about Boston, we are talking about one of the most important cities in North America, both for the historical events that took place, and for the many landmarks and historical attractions that can be admired while visiting the city.

If you are on a family trip and with children, the tour we recommend exploring the city is the Boston Duck Tour. Fun but also full of information, history and commentary.

The tour starts from the ground aboard a WWII-style landing craft, passing through the streets of Beantown, past Trinity Church, Faneuil Hall and the Holocaust Memorial.

There are so many landmarks that you can see, from the Hancock Tower, to the Boston Common and Boston Public Garden, the Union Oyster House - presumably the oldest restaurant in America, the Longfellow Bridge and the Charles River, and it is just here that the vehicle transforms into a boat to enter right into the Charles River and give you the opportunity to enjoy the view of the city from the water. Sure, fun for kids, but not just for them!
