We booked this online and saved a few dollars off our tour. Not sure why the second day is offered free, if your only going to use one day then perhaps a little off would be nice. We found the drivers helpful and had good knowledge of the area, although taken off their script they struggled a little. Tipping is... More

We booked a two day ticket and had mixed experience - if you get on and your tour guide is 'Baron' then get off as all his says is 'library museum' which is the equivalent of 'do not speak whilst on my vehicle' he was awful and a number of people didn't understand as they weren't English speakers so all...

We purchased our tickets in a hotel and then struggled to find where to get on. The drivers varied in their style but they were all knowledgeable courteous and interesting. Kids favourite was JD. Once we worked out where the stops were it was great. Especially handy to have a beer in Cheers and hop on trolley outside to go... More

Took the trolley tour on a Sunday. The company was clearly not prepared for the number of passengers because our crowded trolley had to turn away large groups of people at every stop. The seats are not accommodating for tall people - be prepared to have your knees bang against the seat in front of you. We started with a... More

We liked the idea of not driving around Boston in our car. We were able to get on and off the Trolley for as many stops as we wanted. The only downside is on a busy day you may have to wait for a second trolley if the first is full. All riders must be seated. The drivers were knowledgeable... More

We ended up with three different guides. One was great while the other two were just okay. We were able to see different parts of the City which gave us a glimpse of places to re-visit.

This was our first trip to Boston together. Very convenient to buy the tour tickets in our hotel. Great price for a fun tour! Christian was our tour guide and he did a great job talking about the history of Boston along with his humor. I would recommend this tour service.

Great waist of time . Watching one by one trolley stop pass on by without enough seats for 35-40 people waiting on a summer weekend. Had call company at every stop. Not a great choice with small kids. Drivers very nice but company slow to react to volume.

I take the trolley every time I visit Boston. Since you can hop on and hop off I get to see many areas I would otherwise not see. I will never drive thru Boston, traffic is insane! So the trolley is the best option. Especially since you get 2 days out of it. Pick the neighborhood you want to see... More
