Having never been to Boston, I thought it would be a good idea to take the trolley tour of the city first to get an overview. My daughter and I hopped on the bus and took our seats. Our guide was Bill. He was very knowledgeable, very pleasant, but it became quickly apparent the he gets frustrated by traffic and... More

For us, there would be no other way to see main places of Boston in such an efficient and convenient way, but to ride on this trolley service. It was rainy days in Boston. We conveniently hop on hop off to reach some places in between our walking self-exploring the city of Boston and its surrounding.

I bought tickets for Old Town Trolley in Boston for my chance to explore a new city. I picked the wrong company. Our first guide Buck was rude to customers and complained about traffic more than talking about the city. Extremely unprofessional. Our second guide was o.k. but she never mentioned her name, so I don't know what to call... More

I was in Boston for the first time for a conference and only had 1 day to sight see. I was traveling alone and this was an excellent way to see the city without having to take cabs, etc. I loved the opportunity to hop off and sight see, and then catch another trolley to the next stop (or walk...

Had an awful time when I used this service back in October so decided to make use of their money back guarantee. we had a awful experience buying tickets with a rude seller. Then after we let that go we had a hard time with the trolleys always being full on a rainy day in Boston. It meant we spent... More

OK trolley tour. Stops to get off to see things were appropriate but if you just wanted to see the sights without venturing off, they did not get to close to very many. Best if you took walking tours

A very informative and detailed tour of Boston. Our driver, Townie, was very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this tour as a way to get familiar with the city, and an opportunity to stop off and visit the sites. If possible, try to find more affordable parking, as I paid $38 USD to park at the garage near the... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
