I love to do a tour like this when I come to a new city as it gives you a bit of a feel for the city and helps you get your bearings of where things are. Being December the trolleys weren't very full so there wasn't any issue of getting a seat. We did the complete circuit first, then... More

We booked this two-day Hop On Hop Off trolley before getting to Boston. Since we flew in and didn't rent a car, this was a great way to see the city. We were lucky in that the trolley stopped at our hotel in the morning and dropped us off late afternoon. As we traveled throughout the city, the driver provided... More

The drivers were all great. I appreciated how polite they were, not only to customers, but also to random people that stopped them on the street. It made my experience much more pleasant. The information they provided was also very helpful!

This two day tour is the best way to do a quick view of beautiful Boston. It is a hop on hop off so anything you see that you want to explore more of you hop off and go look, then catch the trolly again and keep going. You also get a tour of the Harbour with it. I would... More

Clean, on time and the drivers knowledge was excellent. This is better than the pre-recorded message you get in some places. very interesting history of Boston and the USA. Even though it was winter and off-season there were still trolleys every 20 - 30 minute from 0930 to 1600hrs.

Booked this hop on hop off trolley online, and saved a little money. Picked us up at the cruise ship port, and then we hopped off and on at various stops for the rest of the day. Drivers gave information about the area we were driving though as we went along. Pickup's were on time on the Sunday we were... More

Boston is totally terrific and what makes a great city even better is taking a Trolley Tour. Amazing drivers referred to as Cast conduct you on a breath taking ride around town. All the sites come alive when the in depth explanation of all the historical landmarks (which there are many) are visited. The unusual safety messages -Don't drink. don't... More

We had several different drivers on the three days we rode the trolleys, but all were friendly and very knowledgeable. I recommend riding the loop to get a good idea of what all you want to go back and spend more time on. It's a great way to get around town and learn all about Boston's sites!

We enjoyed the hop on hop off trolley in Boston. We first rode the whole route to see what we would like to go back to and spend more time. The guide was excellent and very informative.
