Great value way to see the city

Higher up & less busy than most other trolley tours meant easy getting a seat. Courteous drivers each with their own little story to tell. A brilliant way to navigate the city

We went for the premium ticket, which was offered to include 3 days hop-on, hop-off travel, plus splash tour (in the harbour), plus entry to a bunch of places. I should warn immediately, that, on the 2nd day, the company changed their deals and changed their routes. This was great for us, as we were able to follow both old... More

There are many trolly services but this one was fantastic. We saw all the major attractions with drivers that were humorous and informative, adding hilarious anecdotal comments to historic features. We were in Boston for one day and could not have done nearly as much without this fantastic service. Don't pass on the Duck Tour! Time of tour is heavily... More

On our first day, we did the Freedom Walk with our nephew and wanted more information. So we took the trolley the second say. The concierge at the Revere Hotel got our tickets for us ($25 each for seniors). Our driver/guide, Mack, was excellent. He greeted each person and asked where we were from. He really has a passion for... More

I was in Boston on a business trip last weekend and some friends wanted to take the trolley tour to get to see the city, they had already purchased tickets so I agreed and bought a ticket to the same attraction. When we went to get on the actual trolley I found out I had purchased the basic ticket and... More

Hi derekmiller90. Sounds like you had a combination of unfortunate events collide to provide a less than happy experience with us. Regarding the upgrade charge specifically, that policy has been changed and is no longer in effect. People wishing to upgrade their tickets may do so for the difference with no additional burden. As for Paul Revere's house, that is... More

Upper deck trolley picked us up right in front of our hotel (Hilton). We purchased our tickets at our hotel front desk. Runs every 30 minutes. We selected the three day option ($41) instead of the 1day ($31) because we wanted to go to Cambridge (Harvard, MIT) and we were very happy with our selection. We stopped frequently however the...

Great way to get around - trolleys were clean and comfortable - even on bad weather days! Drivers were fantastic! Great knowledge about Boston and local history, as well as just nice "characters!"
