Loved the tour--easy way to see an overview of the city in a fairly short amount of time. Our driver - Captain Matty--was superb. Added some fun and humor to make it a delightful ride. We checked ahead to get a trolley with a lift, and got to take our wheelchair-bound mom along.

This was so awesome! Toured all of Boston & since we went in December the ticket was good for like 4 days (same as you pay for 1 day in the summer)! Only downside is that it stopped at 4 PM so we still had to use the T & cabs at night.

Enjoyed the trolley tour which we found very informative and convenient. It was money well spend. I will recommend all travellers to Boston to make use of this service.

We spent a nice day in Boston using the OTT. While a couple drivers were a little grumpy, there were others who were fabulous! The drivers on the actual Freedom Trail were all quite knowledgeable and friendly. This is a nice way to get an overview of the city and get somewhat quickly to the places that you really want...

Loved this tour. It was a great way to see Boston and get a feel for what the city has to offer. My only complaint is that it is difficult to take pictures out of some of the windows. We appreciated that we not only got a great tour of Boston but we also got free admission to the Boston... More

Good hop on, hop off service, with buses every 15 minutes. All the drivers were informative and knowledgeable, and the buses clean and well stocked with tour maps and other leaflets.

We took the Old Town Trolley tour while in Boston last week and had several different drivers. By far, Papa was the best. He gave a great tour! The others were ok, but we liked Papa the best. We had one driver (sorry, cannot remember his name; Think it was Wiley?) that I was completely unhappy with. I know driving... More

There is so much traffic in Boston that it really takes away from the enjoyment of this tour. The guides are knowledgeable and offer good insight into notable places in Boston. I would recommend this tour as a way to get around the city for less than taking a taxi but if you want to get a round fast I... More

Well we did not know there was so many trolley tour companies, but this company did a good job, the drivers/tour guides were very knowledgable. This is a great way to see the city and then decide what to do next or in more detail. I would recommend you do this tour first, on your arrival, our price included a... More
