Time Out says

The city’s most iconic tour lends both land and sea perspectives to Boston’s history and architecture, with sense of humor to spare. Tour guests clamor aboard a revamped, World War II-era amphibious vehicle manned by, yes, a “ConDUCKtour.” As you first cruise the streets of Boston, your tour guide divulges intel on such landmarks as the State House, Bunker Hill, Boston Common and Quincy Market, occasionally inviting passengers to give a little quack of hello to locals. Then comes the famed “Splashdown,” a plunge into the Charles River, which grants passengers views of both the Boston and Cambridge skylines and a chance to intermingle with sailboats, kayaks and, yes, local ducks.
