The cruise + bus tour is a pretty good deal. Both were full of information. They had some technical difficulties on the boat with with sound system used by the gentleman narrating the tour. He and the trolley drivers were clever and personable. The hop on/hop off feature with the trolleys can get a little expensive when you feel like you need to tip each driver, but they do such a good job, how can you not?

In May of this year my wife and I visited Boston with friends. We were only there for a couple of days and wanted to get the most out of our trip, so we decided to try a tour bus. There were several different options but chose City View which proved to be an excellent decision! The information each tour guide/driver disseminated was almost overwhelming and the delivery ranged from hilarious to quiz master. Each tour guide put their own flair on the historic information they shared - No scripts were used! We jumped off/on multiple times and got to experience four (4) separate tour guides, Cindy being our favorite followed closely by the quiz master (sorry, but I didn't catch his name). We all agreed that City View was an excellent Trolley Tour service and if we ever get back to Boston, we will definitely jump onboard!

We also paid for this tour only to arrive and find that they are closed for the season! I lost the entire day and could not find another company at such short notice! I was charged and now I am disputing this transaction! Very irresponsible advertising!
