This was a good overview of the city, but if you get on, don't get off! We took the complete circuit and had a great guide, but at one stop someone complained that they had been waiting for an hour and that three trolleys had gone by full. He asked the driver if he would wait after an hour, and... More

What a great way to see Boston - we hopped on and off 3 times for our full circuit, each time the drivers were informative and entertaining. The last driver's enthusiasm for the history of his city was so obvious it was infectious. The ticket included the Tea Party Museum, which itself was a delight. We did have a bit... More

Decided to book this tour as we had never been to Boston before. Took a while to get on the trolleys and were disappointed in the preference given to cruise ship passengers. While the tour covers a lot of ground it was not always easy to hear the information given. It did what we needed which was provide transport to... More

My husband and I visit Boston every summer and ALWAYS get on the Old Town Trolley... We enjoy the varied narration of the drivers, and we love the flexibility to " Hop off...Hop on ". We take in a Red Sox game or 2 and ride the trolley to Kenmore Square and walk over to Fenway. We also take the... More

We thought that the trolley tour was excellent! Both the service and the locations the tour went was a positive for Boston. The drivers were all fabulous and we met quite a number of them as we hopped on and hopped off over our two day ticket duration. It provided excellent value for money as it was, but to also... More

I had one day in downtown Boston since the rest of the time was dedicated to work. Since it was my first time in Boston, I opted for the Old Town Trolley Tours to get an overview of Boston. Boy, did I luck out....I got "Cracker Jack" as the tour guide. Outstanding! He loves Boston and gives you so much... More

We were fortunate to have Crackerjack as our first trolley tour guide. We thought he was fantastic, but had no idea how good he really was until we had several other tour guides. The others were knowledgeable and pleasant, but Crackerjack was just phenomenal! The trolleys are definitely the best way to get around the city.

We have done Old Town Trolley Tours in a few of their locations and have never been disappointed. In the case of Boston I would recommend taking one whole ride around the city to see the highlights of each stop and where the stops are located before are getting off. Finding the stops where other riders are not waiting can... More

The Old Town Trolley was a great overview of the city with some great historical information. We rode the trolley on two occasions (as it was a two day pass) and saw most of what we wanted to see in Boston. DONT GET ON THE TROLLEY AT RUSH HOUR OR YOU WILL JUST SIT IN TRAFFIC FOR QUITE A WHILE.... More

We live on outskirts of Boston and we received a family visit from Brasil, so when they asked us to take them to visit Boston, we remembered the Old Town Trolley, wich we've done before. We were a fairly big party, of 14 total, mostly kids, and we had to wait for a couple of buses to go by in... More
