The Old Town Trolley was the perfect way to see the city. We very much enjoyed the drivers, their enthusiasm & their knowledge. It was most definitely worth the price. Bubba & Bear were awesome!!

We spent a chilly and wet weekend in Boston, as it was our first time we had no idea what or where anything was located. We decided to take the trolley so we could get off and on as we wanted. Almost all the stops where directly near a point of interest. We would exit the trolley talk a short... More

Visited the Boston area for a wedding and spent one day in Boston sightseeing. Since it was cold and snowing, we took the Trolley tour. Not much history. The driver was amusing, but limited. It was warm and not too crowded. We would have picked the walking tour if the weather was warmer. Overall, it was fair.

Thank you for taking the time to review our tour and was sorry to read it fell flat from a history perspective. I wish you had indicated who your guide was but will be sure to share your comments with all of our conductors so we can make improvements. More

On a cold, snowy March day they provided a warm, friendly and informative introduction to Boston's attractions. The main points seem to be covered. The drivers were knowledgeable and safe. The price was reasonable and the jokes in the commentary were bearable. Recommended.

This was our first visit to Boston and our first time using this kind of tour. We had a great time and learned so much about the city. We were lucky to have a great deal ( buy one day and get two more for free). We ending up using the tour to get to other destinations for our City... More

We took the tour round the city once to see where we wanted to get off and spend time...Second tour we got off and on at attractions. Variable talents in the bus tour drivers. Captain Maddy was the best - informative, funny and engaging! The tour takes you all around Boston and over to Cambridge to see MIT and Harvard.... More

Tour came recommended by the staff at my hotel, and sold me a two day hop-on / hop-off pass. Tours run for most of the day and cover pretty much all the main landmarks in the centre of town, and few that are further out (Harvard, Fenway Park, USS Constitution etc). The driver/guides are knowledgeable and good humoured. The map... More

My husband and I took the tour yesterday and felt it would have been pretty good (our guide Bubba was animated and knowledgable) but the extremely old trolley we were on was so fogged up we couldn't see out the windows. I spent the entire tour wiping my side window with my forearm every 30 seconds. It wasn't until we... More
