We were in town for a soccer event and weren't up to walking The Freedom Trail, but we did want the kids to at least get to see Boston and learn some of the history. We purchased the tour online and started at stop one near the Aquarium. We had previously walked around the shopping area of Faneuil Hall. We... More

I had a great time at the trolley this weekend. the guys are very informative, funny, caring for the safety and comfort of everyone aboard the trolley which is great. The trolley takes you through a huge chunk of Boston and some Cambridge. You defenitely leave the trolley with a lot of knowledge and info on Boston. Warning: If you... More

My family and I visited the Boston area on Easter. We have never been to the city before and were told from many friends who visited it is a "walking" town and there would be no need to purchase tickets for the Trolleys. Well, when we arrived it was so windy and having our sons, ages 8 and 12, I... More

Anyone visiting the Boston area be sure to get it n the trolley tour. Miles was our tour guide and was simply amazing. Even though he's a Boston bruins fan and I'm a Montreal canadiens fan he was still a blast. I do recommend this tour for everyone!!!

We took this tour today and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour guides were interesting and it was easy on/off when we wanted it to be. Bonuses: 2 days for the price of one and entrance into the Boston Tea Party museum. This is a great way to get around Boston and see the most popular sites. Buy your tickets online... More

What can I say about these tours? I have taken lots of hop on hop off buses in different cities but this has to be the best! We came across at least 6 drivers in our 2 days in Boston and one was nicer, friendly and better informed and entertaining than the next. Don't miss it if you're in Boston.

We had so much fun with Hollywood, our driver and guide. He was so interesting, fun, and knowledgeable. We were so happy we did this tour and we're lucky enough to end up with Hollywood. Thank you Old Town Trolly Tours!!

I read many great reviews for the Old Time Trolley, so we decided to give them a try and were for the most part very pleased. Great drivers, dropped you off and picked you up at all the great tourist spots of Boston. Lots of detailed information and history. Being that we were there for Easter weekend, I guess they...

On a second visit to Boston we took, as we did before, the Old Town Trolley for seeing again the best of Boston tourist sites. The cost is very affordable and the ticket was valid for three days! The trolley drivers/guides were helpful and knowledgeable. You can't beat "the hop on/hop off" feature of the Old Town Trolley Tours which... More
