The Boston trolley tours are simply a must do. The old fashioned trolley buses offer amazing historic sites and great attraction scenes. Even if you don't want to do site seeing the trolley gives you a day pass to great locations around the city. Every driver we got on the day of the tour was so enthusiastic about their job... More

Only had one full day in Boston as part of our fly drive, so wanted a good overview of the city from we could pick out anything we wanted to explore further, and this tour did just that. Drivers were excellent (we had Bunker and Regan), lots of useful info and humour, and a much-appreciated preparedness to politely but firmly... More

We had used Old Town Trolley in other cities, and the Boston tour was excellent. It is a great introduction to the city in an easy, economical way. Our strategy is to get an overview and then return to points of extreme interest. This tour offers the opportunity to get off and on, so places like the USS Constitution are... More

Me and my family had to wait more than 40 minutes under the sun and heat for one of these trolleys. In the meantime, several trolleys from other operators passed by. Also, the narration was very difficult to understand due to the street noise. It's better to take another trolley with narrations via earphones (and available in different languages).

This was the first thing we did in Boston. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is new to Boston and not sure what to see. It is a hope on hope off tour so if you see something you must get a closer look at hope off and catch the next trolley that won't be far behind. It... More

What a great way to see the city! We loved the many stops they had to get off and explore. Most of the drivers were very good. There was one that seemed a little abrasive when we got on, but he was a wealth of historical knowledge! We stayed near Fenway, so it was great to jump on at the... More

The Old Town Trolley was a great way to see Boston. The guides were great, as each had a different personality and tour of Boston. The new stadium seating trolleys are fantastic so try to sit in the first 5 or 6 rows. I recommend this to anyone who wants to see the highlights in Boston.

We had used Old Town Trolley Tours on our visit to San Diego a few years ago and were very impressed. The Boston version was just as good! Very good value ( we bought the two day pass) and took the full tour the first day to orient ourselves, the used the hop on- hop off the second day to... More

BIG fan of Old Trolley. Have done St. Augustine as well as San Diego. In a city as large as Boston, it is easy to be overwhelmed with your choices and directions. Our first day in Boston was spent on the trolley. Rode the train in and picked up the Trolley at the first stop. We were impressed with the... More

We didn't have a ton of time on our visit to Boston so we were looking for a way to tour this great city. Our hotel staff told us that Old Town Trolley Tours would pick us up at the door. The staff assured us Old Town Trolley Tours was the best bus tour Boston has to offer. Sure enough,... 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.
