We managed to purchase an online discount deal for the two-day premium tour ($32 Canadian taxes included). We felt that this was actually a really good deal simply for the parking discount they offer alone ($4 all day in an underground parking garage in a Cambridge mall). They bus tour offers three routes which provide nice coverage and many practical... More

Our hotel was right next to stop 7, which is the intersection of the Boston, and Harvard loops. We bought the 2-day Super Tour because it provided unlimited travel and a ride on the Duck splash, plus one other attraction from a list of 5 or so e.g. the Charles River Cruise or MIT Museum. We found this to be... More

We did the Super Tour which included unlimited on-off for two days as well as some extras like the Duck Tour (waste of time if you don't have little kids) and museum entrance. The buses were clean, stopped frequently, relatively on-time and had an interesting route. The first two guides we had on Friday were awesome. Seriously, we didn't want... More

Our family enjoyed the Bus tour. Most drivers were pleasant and interacted with the passengers. The premium ticket is by far the best choice!

Really a good experience! I bought the two days ticket, so i was around with many different drivers, and All of them were super friendly and really good guides. You have stops at every major attraction of the city, and with the two days ticket you also have the "splash tour" that it's nice (boat tour of half an hour),... More

This was our first trip to Boston. We purchased the two-day premium pass for value but didn't end up using it. Boston is such an easy city to walk that we didn't need it both days. Do the one day, get the low down on the city then decide if you need extra. The bus drivers were hit and miss.... More

I have mixed feelings about this tour, I've done hop-on/off tours in other cities before and this one was fun but could really be improved. POSITIVES - Upper-deck trolleys give you a great vantage point to see above the traffic, seats were comfortable and trolleys were clean - Trolley drivers are knowledgeable and friendly. When we did the seaport loop... More

Our driver, Mike Smith, was very informative about the area, both historical and personal. He shared accurate and humorous stories with fantastic flare! Had a very amazing voice a absolute pleasure to listen to his commentary.

As a resident of the Greater Boston area for the past twenty years and having taken my fair share of Boston Trolley or Duck Tours whenever company comes to town, I wasn't sure what to expect when my family and I took an Upper Deck Trolley Tour around Boston and Cambridge this afternoon. Admittedly, I was very impressed! We were... More
