My wife, son & I took advantage of the Old Town Trolley tour of Boston. Our second tour guide, Animal, made the tour. His vast knowledge of the city, coupled with his down-to-earth approach of relating the city's history, made the entire experience phenomenal. As a former teacher, I applaud Animal for his unique ability to engage my eleven year-old,... More

We took the Old Town Trolley tour and were really pleased. We had multiple drivers as we hopped on and off the trolley at different stops during the day. All of the drivers were great. We purchased the 2 day tour and didn't get to use the portion for the harbor cruise or the the Boston Tea Party museum. But... More

We had an awesome time on the Trolley Tour and Harvard Cruise. Gonzo started our day at the Sheraton & took us to Quincy Market area where we met "Crackerjack". He was very helpful and lots of fun! We took our Harvard Cruise, which was very nice & informative. Then we took the entire tour around the city with Miles.... More

Boston is so walkable and pretty small for a major city. This a bus ride u can hop on and off...but at 40$ its a really expensive and some drivers and cheesy schtiks. Maybe, recommended for family with real small children and the elderly, otherwise its easier to walk and see more along the way, many landmarks were 5 to... More

This is the best trolley in Boston! You get a free pass to the harbor cruise and the tea party museum with your ticket. PLUS, you can hop on and hop off two days in a row. I would recommend getting a map on your phone or a brochure. They are not allowed to post signs where the trolleys stop,... More

My husband an I were in Boston in January for a week and this is a great way to not just get around but also a way of finding your bearings. It was my first time ever in the States and I could not recommend Boston and the New England area enough. Using the trolleys (buses) was a great way... More

First time in Boston, we stayed at Taj and really didn't know where to go. Of course we walked Newbury Street and did all the shopping and sightseeing in the local area. We were told about "The Old Town Trolley", what a great experience. We were able to see all of the attractions in this great city without ever leaving... More

This is the best way to see Boston. Loved that it's good for 2 days, hop on and off and definitely take the Harbor Cruise included with ticket. Even during 4th of July weekend, when the next trolley to stop was full, they were quick to send another. Some drivers are better than others in terms of descriptive narrative. Would... More

My family and I went on the Old Town Trolley Tour in Boston. The price included a harbor cruise or the Boston Tea Party Boats and Museum, we choose the Tea Party, so glad we did! It was entertaining and informative. The hop on hop off tour was time well spent. We were able to see more of Boston than... More
