Duck operations have been in presence in the Midwest for quite a long time, and indeed, keep on flourishing. What we did, be that as it may, is take a remarkable item and enhance and upgrade it, while in the meantime conveying it to a noteworthy metropolitan city. In spite of the fact that this sounds straightforward, the procedure from beginning to end took almost two years, "100 corridors of government" and savage determination by an ex-investor who felt that there was more to life than the standard 9-5, corporate world. Opening in Boston required around 30 grants from different administrative organizations. The licenses were hard to get somewhat because of the scandalous bureaucratic formality, additionally on the grounds that a great many people had never known about Ducks and essentially thought the thought of an area/water visit in Boston was insane. At a certain point, Andy Wilson, Founder, was informed that it would be less demanding to assemble a high rise in the focal point of the Boston Public Garden!

Since beginning, Boston Duck Tours was voted by Boston Magazine as "Best of Boston" in the city visit classification, and voted Boston.com's "Best City Tour". The organization additionally was regarded by the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce at their Small Business of the Year Luncheon, Andy was named Small Businessperson of the Year for Massachusetts, and Andy likewise got a Spirit of Enterprise Award from the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau.
