Hop on and hop off makes for a great "decide as you go" experience! Drivers were so funny and made the ride even more enjoyable! Great way to see a LOT of Boston all in a short period of time!

Our tickets were for two consecutive days & included our choice of either the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum or a Boston Harbor Cruise. We wanted to do both. It was only $8.00 more to add the second tour. There were 16 stops on the trolley route which took us over to Charlestown & Cambridge, as well as Fenway... More

Our #1 tour of Boston was Urban Adventours, and we Loved it! However, staying in the Back Bay and see other attractions(USS Constitution), this was a great way to do it! We bought tickets for $40 and it was good for 2 days of hop on, hop off rides. Also included, was a Boston Harbor Cruise(45 min in the harbor... More

We have now taken the Old Town Trolley Tour in several cities and always enjoy it. The Boston Old Town Trolley Tour was so great, we rode it for several loops around the route two days in a row! The drivers are all professional and each has their own sense of humor, which is fun to see. We appreciate the... More

We chose the Old Town Trolley in Boston on July 23rd and 24th. We were told we would have to wait more that 15 minutes for a ride. It was an absolutely terrible experience. We picked up the trolley at the Boston Copley Marriott hotel the morning of the 23rd and should have known then we were in trouble. We... More

I'm a 17 year old traveling with my 21 year old sister and parents. We purchased a 2 day ticket for the 4 of us. While my parents were at business meetings, my sister and I used the trolley on our own. We had many very helpful and fun drivers! It was no problem that we were teenagers traveling alone.... More

We used the on off trolley to get around Boston. We were on 3 different trolleys with 3 different drivers. Each had there own style. We enjoyed the extra music clips that were played along the way ie., the theme from Cheers when approaching the bar. It is a great way to see the city and get around the city.... More

Love Old Time Trolley! Will use them again and again! Just moved to Boston and have had tons of visitors. Over the last 3 months, we've tried 3 Boston Trolley operations and this is by far our favorite. Their tour guides give them the advantage! They're engaging, funny, and put a exciting twist on the history and knowledge of the... More

If you want to get off and on again a lot of places, this is fine. However, it does not go to the fine arts museum or the Gardner museum! Driver was a little too funny and not enough boston information, kept shpwing us where the Subway stores were located! Drove very fast so difficult to see a lot.

Thank you for taking the time to review our tour and share your experience with us. I wish you had indicated who your tour guide was so that would address your issues with him/her. The location of the Museum of FIne Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum prevents them from being stops on our tour. We do have a100%... More

My wife, son & I took advantage of the Old Town Trolley tour of Boston. Our second tour guide, Animal, made the tour. His vast knowledge of the city, coupled with his down-to-earth approach of relating the city's history, made the entire experience phenomenal. As a former teacher, I applaud Animal for his unique ability to engage my eleven year-old,... More
