Their last tour for the day is at 4pm, hence if you land with at least three hours to 4pm, then get on to this ride from the Marriott Long Wharf stop #1 near Quincy market.

When we went to Boston it was bitterly cold, and the snow was still piled up in 3-5 foot piles along the streets and, well, everywhere. That's when we decided to cheat and take this trolley tour instead of walking, and we were glad we did. From the lady (I think her name was Diane) in the ticket booth at... More

i was in Boston during the recent cold and snowy weather. So whereas I would normally walk around town to get acquainted with the area, I decided to go on this bus tour instead. The drivers were wonderful - I went all the way around twice with two different drivers and got wonderful and different perspectives and information from each... More

A fantastic afternoon learning about Boston. The drivers were all very friendly and knowledgeable. Great that you could hop on and off. Fantastic that the ticket price includes other attractions too. Only negatives were the plastic windows were a bit misty (but this is hardly a complaint) and that we had to wait a while for the next bus at... More

Fantastic tour of Boston when your time is limited and walking is a struggle. We were so lucky to see so much of the City and get a great history lesson from Cindy, our driver and tour guide. Really picturesque ride and very informative.

Best thing to do in Boston. I learned so much about the city, and an extensive tour through Boston and other areas, dropping off close to Harvard and on the door step of Fenway park, a great adventure

On the day we rode the buses, it turned out that neither Fanueil Hall nor the USS Constitution was open to visitors -- two of the main attractions along the bus route. None of our three bus drivers knew about this, or, if they did, they didn’t bother to say. So in large part our $50 tickets (two seniors) were... More

The wait for a bus a longer than we expected (30 minutes the first day, and over an hour the second - but more about that later), but once we were on the bus it was very good. The tour guides that we had were very informative and entertaining during the tour. I have done multiple hop on / hop... More
