http://www.bostonducktours.com
Or
https://bostonsupertours.com

I don't know what's better, but the first one is the original and far more prevalent/popular.  Has been more than 10 years since I did it.
There is a Groupon for the Boston supper tours , read the find print. During the summer months It's only valid on the 10:00 am tour

Super Duck Tour for an Adult, Child 3–11, or Child Under 3 from Boston Super Tours (Up to 26 Percent Off)

I just posted a TR about Boston. If someone thinks it's worthwhile to link it here or to the wiki, that would be great. Hope it is helpful to all those planning to visit soon!

You can't do a TR if you live there.

Any suggestions for hotels - cash specifically? It's for a friend who is not in the points world at all and is going in August.

Says who?
Show me the rule.
Plus, we live in Newton, not Boston, so it is a "trip."

Price range?
Desired location?
Shabbos or weekday?
We loved fairmont. Only about a mile from chabad kenmore square.


Fairmont has Nice staircases inside. Only electronic locks AFAIK

Weekday (probably something like Sunday night, Monday night). Not really sure about price range. Nothing extravagant for sure, I'd say $300 at most, though lower priced options would probably be appreciated. As far as area, I assume somewhere along the green line so they can get to food and shul via the T if they want.

What kind of room did you get at the Fairmont? Maybe I should just tell him to hop on here and buy 2 nights with suite upgrade. Should be cost effective.

We had an amazing suite, the Catie Copley. Very large. Must have been over 1,200 sf. I can't speak to the regular rooms. My guess is that they are pretty small, this being an older property.
