Amphibious vehicle

David and Linda Aksomitis beside the amphibious vehicle they rode in for their tour of the Boston Harbor. Stop #4B on the Boston Super Tours.

Driving around a new city isn’t for us–instead, we take whatever double decker bus tour is available. In Boston, we had several options, and chose the Boston Super Tours for a couple of reasons, the main one being their Super Duck Tour with the amphibious vehicle that drives right into the Boston Harbor!

The extra free days and free admissions didn’t hurt our feelings either, of course. It was, in fact, one of the best deals we found in what was a pretty expensive city.

Cost aside though, I loved the historic aspects of the city, especially as we got a bird’s eye view from the trolley. The tour has 21+ stops, hitting all of the Boston attractions that were on our list of things to do in Boston.

Here’s the link to the Boston Super Tours map: Just click on the green map point for the name of the attraction.

Our favorite spot was #13, 84 Beacon Street, home of the Cheers bar!
