I highly recommend taking the tour, which gives you the “overview” of Boston. The whole tour is about 2 hours, but with a few hop-off/hop-on and lunch it will take almost the whole day. Good places to hop-off: Stop 3: USS Constitution – you can get on the ship, but the security is like in the airport. Stop 6: Public... More

This was a waste of money. Peppermint Patti told us very little except how to do other things. Would use another service doing the same thing.

We totally enjoyed our tours through Trusted Tours. In fact, so much so that we recommended to the doctors who were traveling with us and they all booked Trusted Tours Trolley Tours on Saturday. We only wish that we had taken an extra day in Boston just to see the sights! Mr. T and Bubba were the tour guides on... More

This was a good trolley tour, the drivers had good info and its a great way to learn your way around the city. The trolley stopped at my Hotel each day on the way to stop number 1. On the day I bought my ticket they had a special going, $30 for a 2 day tour plus either a harbor... More

These tours are very good for those who cannot walk a great deal and only have a short time in the city. Unfortunately, we were there when the trolley was only running until 4 p.m., so we were unable to get the most out of our tour (we were unable to get into the city until 1 p.m.). Overall a... More

We had a couple of cold, dreary days in Boston and made the most of it with the trolley tours. The guides were very nice, informative and the "on-off" access was great. Great way to see the entire city in a couple hours and, if the weather was nicer, I am sure we would have gotten on and off more... More

The trolley drivers were awesome. Each one gave different information during the tour so if you repeated an area you learned something new. For saying it was pricey our admission came with either the Tea Party tour or the Harbor cruise so I thought it was well worth it.

We started at the first stop and stayed on the trolley for the entire loop (about 1 1/2 hours) as our introduction to Boston. Our guide, Giovanni, was both informative and entertaining. We then visited specific locations and used the trolley to take us from one area to another. The five people in our group were all very pleased with... More

This is a good tour and great way to see the city. It is expensive but you'd pay more for a private cab ride and it would take you multiple days to.cover all the tour route by foot.
