Loops cover most areas of interest to tourists in Boston. Views are pretty good from the trolleys. Narration was good-to-excellent and friendly, except for one stony silent driver on the seaport loop who was also apparently unaware that the ICA museum is closed on Mondays. Duck tour was very interesting and well narrated. A particularly good value if interested in... More

Purchased "the works" tickets and enjoyed the on/off use of Super Duck Trolley Tours for two days. Harbor Splash was nice, but didn't have enough time to see all the other things I paid for because we purchased aquarium and IMAX tickets too. When we tried to board the boat cruse the lines were long and the boat was crowded.... More

Local drivers, provide a lot of local information about the area. Stops were great and we had no problems getting around. Did the 2-day pass which also then gave us a river cruise and a duck boat ride for free---both were great! We were able to see a lot in the limited time that we had in Boston by using... More

Ben and Mrs. Too returned to the Boston area this month to visit her brother in Medford, and her sister in East Falmouth. She was actually born in the old West End of Boston, and Ben met her at Boston College. We have returned fairly regularly but do not get into Boston proper. We are aware, of course that so... More

Great way to see the city all in one take or by pieces at your leisurely pace. Tour guide does a great shoeing points of interest and recommending place to eat. Truly a great value.

Reviewed multiple trolley tours but chose this due to route into Cambridge since we did not stay in the city, free harbor tours , online tickets with coupons. Nice to learn not only history of Boston but Cambridge as well. All the drivers were super friendly and knowledgeable. Learned so much that we would have not had we done a... More

Enjoyed the 45 minute ride on Boston Harbor. Saw seaport district, outline of city skyscrapers, sailboats, and other interesting pieces of Boston. Great breeze and very informative guide. Nice seating on the top!

We found these guys by mistake, we were actually looking for one of their competitors but I am glad we found them. Their prices are cheaper than the other bus services with the same perks and schedule. The drivers we had were exceptionally friendly and funny. With your ticket you also get a free boat ride in the river which... More
