This was my first time in Boston this summer and we decided to do the hop on hop off system. We did some research ahead of time and were glad we did. This one had the most stops which made it better to see everything! We did the two day pass and although it was more money than other companies... More

Awesome review Thetawns, thank you! So glad you had fun and learned some of the great history of the City of Boston and even saw Harvard Square. We're the only trolley tour in the Boston area to include a fun ride through Harvard Square! Jonathan Silverman Boston Super Tours More

If all you're looking for is a means of getting around the city all day (ie hop on, hop off) this is a good, albeit expensive, option. However, if you're looking to actually learn something, forget it. Our "tour guide" barely did more than mention what we were passing by with little commentary about what the significance was-- with some... More

Tour was great except the timing was a little too short to complete visit all the attractions in a day.

Thanks sselva69! We pack a lot of value into our tours and in truth it is hard to get the full experience of Boston's 400 year history in a single day. That's why we offer both single- and multi-day options and encourage all our guests to come back and tour with us whenever they visit Boston! Jonathan Silverman Boston Super... More

We bought "The Works" tour and it was worth it. Highly recommend this touring company. We didn't have a single bad driver/guide. Every single one of them had their own style and shared great information about the city & sights. Duck splash was fun. So was the River Cruise. Easy way to see everything and then get off on the...

Drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. Many stops. Learned a lot about Boston and Cambridge. We were able to leave the car at the hotel the whole visit because the trolley stops were so convenient. Also took the add on Duck Splash which was fantastic. Would greatly recommend This trolley tour.

My husband and I were on summer vacation in the Boston, MA area, continuing on to Kennebunkport and Portland, ME. It was my first visit to the Boston area. The Boston Upper Deck Trolley tours were informative, interesting, and educational. The tour guides were knowledgable and entertaining. I would recommend the tour(s) to anyone traveling to the Boston area.

Very poorly run company. Bus just past us by at the stop, driver was not even looking as we jumped up and down waiving. Called service and they turned the bus around to pick us up. Once on board the driver never said a word as we past key sights, when questioned he said the speaker is broken so no... More
