I was in Boston for a short stop and took the "Upper Deck" tour. It was a perfect way of getting to know the city quickly. Our guide was Brian O'Donnell who knew the city's history extremely well - this made the tour special. An unmissable event if you visit Boston.

I hopped on and off for three days and felt like I saw most of what I wanted to see. It was nice knowing that I could get a bus to or from my hotel and to most attractions.

We were pressed for time and missed many of the stops, but thoroughly enjoyed the Duck Boat tour through the Boston Harbor.

This was a hop-on, hop-off trolley tour that was great to get a lot of sightseeing done while also getting around town with ease. The trolley stops are very convenient and run on schedule, even for the extremely busy 4th of July weekend. The tour guides range in knowledge/skills so some are certainly better than others but they are all... More

We go to the Boston area from the UK most years and have been using upper deck for the last 3-4 years, It's always entertaining, informative, etc Even after 7-8 trips to Boston we learn something, the two ticket is better valve, and you get the duck splash, the guy who took that tour was a retired teacher and really...

we only had one day in boston and did this tour and added on the duck tour. Don't bother with the duck tour it takes you over to the boats you already see on the tour. Waste of time and not worth the money. If you hop off the bus expect to wait awhile for the next bus because of... More

Gee cptravelerWisconsin, it's hard to tell, with the "great" drivers who "tell you lots of info" what it was you didn't enjoy on the tour. Your 2 star review indicating you didn't have enough time with us and praising the drivers reminds us a little of the opening joke in Woody Allen's Annie Hall, about the resort where the food...

With only one day to see the sights of Boston, we decided to take an Upper Deck Trolley Tour in the morning and a Charles River boat-trip in the afternoon. We hopped on and hopped off at North Station, purchased their Basic Single Day Ticket, and stayed for the full two-and-a-half hour Boston-Cambridge loop. The driver/guide, Steve, was brilliant –...

Great feedback JohnF47, thank you. Our out of town guests often tell us the free guide and map we offer is a must for them as they navigate the city and saves them time and headache. Glad you visited and hope to see you again next time you're up our way. Jonathan Silverman Boston Super Tours More
