We got the 2-day pass w/ Duck Splash & Charleston River tour tickets. We bought our tickets at the Cambridge Galleria Mall (where parking is $4 on Sunday) and took the river tour (which was wonderful) before getting on the trolley. We did the entire trolley tour first then used our on-off privileges for those areas we wanted to explore... More

Spent 3 1/2 days recently in Boston. Bought Premium ticket on Groupon which was a good deal. Had several different drivers over two days-each had their strong points. Both days the traffic got heavier as the day went on, and it took longer and longer to get to next stop-one day we were stuck in construction on a bridge for... More

My husband and I purchased the premium package that included 2 days of hop on/off trolley, the duck boat tour, Cambridge tour, and one free bonus. We did zero research on trolley companies and were totally sold by the man working by the BHC whale watch when we asked for a brochure I can't recall his name, but he was... More

We purchased the two-day super ticket and took advantage of the extra day to visit many of the places we noted from the first day. Our first day, we took the bus from Fenway Park to the North End so we could see the Italian section of Baltimore. We got off there and walked to the North Church then around... More

We enjoyed our hop on hop off tour with Upper Deck around Boston. Our driver guides were very informative - both factual and anecdotal - and the route took in the major sights of this interesting and historic city. However, our gold star goes to Trolley Tours employees Will and Carol, whose tireless efforts to register our Travelzoo vouchers and... More

We had a wonderful time on our upper deck trolley tour. The tour guides were great and full of information as they drove us around the city. One particular favorite guide was "Louie" who had us laughing the whole time. Great experience!

Park by The Cheesecake Factory and you can buy your ticket out in front of the mall and have it validated by the tour company so you only pay... More

We purchased our tickets at the South Terminal Train Station and were told we could catch the trolley right out the door. Turned out we had to walk 8 blocks which was near Quincy Market. We bought the one day pass and choose to get off at different attractions. The wait was never long to get on another trolley. All... More

We usually take the local guided bus tour for a general overview and orientation. We had done this before in Boston a number of years ago. The driver, Neal, was excellent and provided good information as well as the usual corny jokes. We wanted a "once around" trip so we could then add in several locations. The basic tour seems... More

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

Great feedback TreeNSquirrel, thanks for writing. Interesting mix of experiences you write about! Glad the overall experience was a positive one. The information you provided about the Splash attendant is especially useful and we'll follow up internally on that. Thanks again and happy trails! Jonathan Silverman Boston Super Tours More
