Really good way to see the city. Drivers all provided good insightful and amusing commentary. The one issue was that some of the stops were quite some way from the attractions that were advertised. That said would definitely use again if back in Boston.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Doesn't stop at any hotels specifically, but if your hotel is central in Boston shouldn't be much of a walk to any of the stops. We were stopping at an airport hotel so got the metro into the centre and picked up the tour... More

It does not go that far. The trolley does stop about 1/2 block from the tea party museum. A number ride to the JFK library shouldn’t cost very much. The Freedom Trail is a nice walk that takes you along many great... More

Old Town Trolley Tours codes (0 Replies)
Does anyone know any discount codes for the Old Town Trolley Tour. I was about to purchase tickets on line and they have a spot for a discount code. I've searched but couldn't find any. If anyone knows the code I'd very much appreciate it.

Have you read the very recent discussions about getting to FedEx field? It isn't pretty. And a night game just adds to the misery. Be sure to do a search of this forum on "fedex" and see your options. Without a car I think it is just a long ride on Metro and a mile walk along with thousands of others. Also on this forum you will find dozens of topics about choosing a hotel. And yes, weekends are usually cheaper than weekdays. Supply and demand. For the places you want to visit, the Metro...More

Monuments by day and by night (4 Replies)
Hi, We will be in Washington for three nights at the beginning of December and would like to see as many of the monuments, buildings and sights as possible. We will be doing a Monuments by Moonlight tour with the Old Town Trolley Tours is this the best way to see the monuments, or should we also visit them by day? R

Response fromIrishFan|
Have you already scheduled your Monuments by Moonlight tour? Hopefully do it early in your trip, that way you get an overview and can decide for yourselves which particular stops on the tour warrant a return visit during the day. For example, for me, 20 minutes is enough at the Jefferson Memorial, but I could spend a couple of hours at the Lincoln Memorial enjoying the views and also visiting the nearby Vietnam and Korea memorials.
