“Highly recommend this Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Our first time in Boston so we wanted to get an overview of the city. Our hotel recommended this tour and we were picked us up from outside the Westin Harbourside. The drivers are fantastic and very knowledgable with special mention of Mr Kelly and Papa who both have a great sense of humour.
The bus route covers most of Boston metro and the busses arrive almost every 15 - 20 min. We bought the two day pass which gave us sufficient opportunity to see many of the attractions in Boston however we will be back to spend time in the JFK library and some of the more quaint suburbs we saw on this fabulous tour.

“Best choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

My husband and I, along with another couple, decided to purchase this tour for two days as a way to get around the city and bypass the expensive can rides. What a great idea!!! LOADS of wonderful historical information and suggestions along the way. We are so happy to have decided upon this tour. Completely worth our money.

“April 25”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

I had used Old Town Trolley in Savannah. We got a discounted ticket from our hotel and they do extend military discounts. I really like that we could get off and on as we wanted. I had done my homework and knew what attractions I wanted to visits. There were a couple of negatives.....the map that they give out does not do a good job of locating stops. We got off on stop 3 and planned to get back on at Stop 4. On the map it looked easy, but those maps do not do well with the confusing streets of Boston. At the end of day our trolley filled up and there were people waiting near the end of route that could not get on. To their credit the driver did ask their dispatch to send out more trolleys. Another benefit was being able to ride for 2 days and the included admisson to the Tea Party Museum.

“Perfect way to get around! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

This tour is incredible! First of all, the drivers. They are all clearly well trained and passionate about what they do! They interact while keeping the tour informative and safe while driving through crowded streets.

Second the stops. The stops along the tour are wonderful. A great way to view some important places in history, but convenient to restaurants, other attractions etc.

The bonus is the fact that the company gives you two days for your purchase. Meaning you can hop off and on take your time at each stop getting the full experience without needing to rush because you know tomorrow you can pick up where you left off.

Special kudos to Peppermint Patty and Boston Bob for the amazing experience on the tour!

“Very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

The old town trolley tour was very informative. We particularly enjoyed riding the tour with Giovanni. He had a great sense of humour and didn't overexplain things. We were impressed that the guides could drive in the traffic and explain the city so well at the same time.
