The best value for money of all the Boston trolley tours. Free admission to a number places during April with trolley tickets. Guides were very good to. Only thing is it takes hours to get around Boston on the trolley. My advice after being there fours days? Use the subway to get to a point then walk around from there.... More

Recommended by our hotel concierge. The drivers are great! So knowledgeable and considerate. Cindy was our driver twice that day - we were so lucky. She knows everything! Is very considerate of her passengers. Everyone who was driving on April 6th made our day truly memorable. Thank you so much! We will be back.

Let me just begin this review by saying I am a very frequent business traveler who generally doesn’t write a review unless I am not dealing with a chain hotel and I can say something positive. However, sometimes a travel services provider provides such incomprehensibly bad service; I feel a need to speak up. This is the case with Upper... More

Proth, that certainly is a long sad story. It's really unfortunate that you were unable to easily board our trolley - especially on a rainy day. As you suggest, it sounds like there must have been something going on aboard the vehicle which caused the driver to stop without opening the door. What that might have been is not clear... More

The Trolley tours gave us a great review of Boston.. The buses were clean and drivers friendly. They ran very close to posted and promised schedule as well. Great way to start a trip to a new city

Fantastic tours around Boston - we got the winter special so 3 days with entrance to a few museums. Sadly the duck splash wasn't running because of ice but I completely understood. The tour guides were friendly and had great banter. Cindy was fantastic. They were all very helpful in general especially when I lost my purse which thankful was... More

I was visiting mid-week and it was very cold and I decided to do the tour, but I wish I had saved my money and just walked. It's true that I got to see more locations since they were spread far apart, but the tourguides didn't really go that in depth about any of the locations we passed, it was... More

Decided to take a tour with three of my sisters a few weeks ago while visiting Boston for the day. Well worth every penny thanks to the driver, Mr. Mike. He is very knowledgeable with the city as well as a class act. Made the trip really enjoyable even when we were the only four on the bus. We will... More

It really is all about the quality of the guides, isn't it BumbleBeeTuna213? Even though we also offer the cleanest, newest trolleys in Boston, with unmatched views over traffic due to their height, what our customers tell us they most appreciate is the knowledge and entertainment they get from our staff. So glad you joined us! More

Being our first time in America, this tour of Boston was a great way to begin our trip. Our first driver Huseph was very informative and extremely helpful with general directions and information about Boston. Would definitely recommend this tour to any friends or family visiting the city!
