We used this tour for two days while we were in Boston in May. Each day was interesting and easy to work with.

Three of us just missed the bus as it pulled away at 9:55 on the morning of July 4. We waited until 10:25 for the next bus. The hotel told us they come by every 15 minutes so we were surprised we had to wait so long early in the day. Our first driver was excellent; gave us lots of... More

Visited Boston with my parents and brother and since we had just weekend decided to go with the Upper Deck trolley. They also offered free duck splash tour and charles river boat cruise. The hop-on hop-off tour is great covers a lot of Boston, Cambridge and south side. There are 3 routes for each of them . Most of the... More

We went on this tour having purchased the Premium ticket, which gives you 2 consecutive days travel plus 45 minutes trip on an amphibious vehicle in the harbour. The travel includes the main city centre loop, the Harvard loop and sea port loop. For $56 + tax this is good value. The only drawback is the inconsistent quality of the... More

The tour was great, very informative and fun. We had a little trouble finding some of the stops though. Some were not marked. However, it was a great experience.

The Upper Deck Trolley Tours is the best way to explore Boston during your visit. There is no other way to see and learn so much about Boston in such a concise, concentrated and fun manner. Our tour guide (and trolley driver) provided an exceptionally impressive talk about Boston's history through modern times with one short story after another. The... More

I left an item on the bus and another driver was a great help, going out of her way and taking time beyond her regular hours, in helping to retrieve it. Another driver gave us a once-in-a-lifetime view of a Spanish 4-master sailing out of the harbor by (1) recognizing the opportunity and (2) knowing exactly where to drive to... More

Very difficult to find stops to get on if not joining from the beginning. We had to take the train in from outside the city. Your map is not clear at all. Therefor paid for 2 day tour and was not able to take advantage of everything because we were lost most of the time walking around the city!

We took the Boston and the Cambridge tours as the 2 day option. It was nice to be able to sit above the traffic and see the sites. We could easily hear and understand the driver/guide as we explored these historic towns. We chose the Charles River cruise as our add-on attraction, an excellent choice. We made several stops and...
