My Parents and I were in Boston for a couple of days before taking a cruise and wanted to experience Downtown Boston and learn about the history of the town. We had spoken to the concierge at the hotel and he recommended this tour. As part of our ticket we were able to also have a free Boston Harbor Tour... More

We really found this a usefully way to get around boston and see lots of sights. Didn't think it was too expensive. Your guides were very knowledgable and although they went the same route. All the tour guides had a unique way of telling you about the locations.

It is worth it if you are not familiar with the city to hop on a trolley to see all the wonder sites there. But, I wasn't happy about not being to get off at 90 percent of the stops to take a picture. Otherwise it was fun to learn history about the city and see the beautiful areas.

We visited Boston prior to boarding a cruise in November. We only had one day in Boston so we arranged that we would do the Old Town Trolley tour for that day. We emailed the Old town Trolley Tours prior to leaving Australia to find out how to get to the tour from our hotel and they told us they... More

I was in Boston for New Year, and the office at Boston Common was less than a minutes walk from the Revere Hotel where I was staying. Great value three day pass for around $40.00. I did the whole tour on the first morning so I could get a feel for what was around, and then used them as and... More

Nice way to see the city main attractions. 3 days open tickets, so you can go up and down and enjoy some destinations and hop back in. We always got a trolley back in less than 20 minutes or so. We had great description on the tour and almost 2:00 or so. A must if you are like us visiting... More

I visited Boston with my parents who did not want to walk everywhere. The Old Town Trolley was perfect because of how many stops, the stop locations and the information given on the tour. Some tour guides were better than others. Bubba and Gonzo were great. There were plenty of stops and the fact to be able to get on... More

We were thrilled that our hotel concierge suggested this particular trolley tour. It is more expansive and offers more opportunities than the others in Boston. We used this company for the 3 days that we were in town to learn more about the city and its historical sites and as a sort of taxi service jumping on and off at... More
