i was in Boston during the recent cold and snowy weather. So whereas I would normally walk around town to get acquainted with the area, I decided to go on this bus tour instead. The drivers were wonderful - I went all the way around twice with two different drivers and got wonderful and different perspectives and information from each... More

A fantastic afternoon learning about Boston. The drivers were all very friendly and knowledgeable. Great that you could hop on and off. Fantastic that the ticket price includes other attractions too. Only negatives were the plastic windows were a bit misty (but this is hardly a complaint) and that we had to wait a while for the next bus at... More

Fantastic tour of Boston when your time is limited and walking is a struggle. We were so lucky to see so much of the City and get a great history lesson from Cindy, our driver and tour guide. Really picturesque ride and very informative.

Best thing to do in Boston. I learned so much about the city, and an extensive tour through Boston and other areas, dropping off close to Harvard and on the door step of Fenway park, a great adventure

On the day we rode the buses, it turned out that neither Fanueil Hall nor the USS Constitution was open to visitors -- two of the main attractions along the bus route. None of our three bus drivers knew about this, or, if they did, they didn’t bother to say. So in large part our $50 tickets (two seniors) were... More

The wait for a bus a longer than we expected (30 minutes the first day, and over an hour the second - but more about that later), but once we were on the bus it was very good. The tour guides that we had were very informative and entertaining during the tour. I have done multiple hop on / hop... More

The tour was 2 hours in total, information very interesting, though some sections of the tour we couldn't see due to construction. We didn't take advantage of this, but there are many stops along the way, get off see the sites and then catch the next Trolley.

In Boston with family (husband here on business) and we got Premium tickets for the trolley which included the Super Ducks tour. We were all impressed by how informative and entertaining the drivers were. We got much more than what we paid for.
