Excellent tour! Our guide, Bobbie was informative on everything Boston and has a great wit! Vehicle was tidy and clean, one suggestion, add cup/water bottle holders to seat backs.

Tip for Bobbie - when talking about Bobby Orr, you should mention, for the benefit of your Canadian passengers, that he was born in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada. Thanks! (:>)

As a rule I don't like bus tours. However, this one was different, the ability to hop on and off around the city over two days is great particularly with young children. The buses used are modern and comfortable with excellent views of the city. By hoping on and off you may get a different driver, and I expected to hear the same thing each one, I was delighted each driver had their own facts and figures and did not follow a verbatim script. This made the tour really interesting and a pleasure. Good value and very informative.

The drivers were amazing; polite, friendly, funny and historically knowledgeable. The trolley itself provided an super view and plenty of fresh air. Anyone travelling to Boston and its environs like Cambridge and Harvard should start off by taking the Upper Deck Trolley Tour to view all there is to do in Boston, while getting an overview of how the city is laid out. Take the whole tour to decide what you want to do later. You can then take the trolley for two days getting on and off wherever you want (all for the price you paid the first day). A restful way to see the city and learn about its history, before or while you do the attractions.
The second day when we arrived at the Cambridge Galleria as the end stop of the day, we asked the driver the best way to get back to Kendall Square. No problem he said, I can go by there on my way home. So he drove us right to our hotel entrance. Impressive service you should not miss. Upper Deck Trolley tours really 'made' our holiday in Boston!

New clean trolleys that sit up much higher than the rest of the trolleys in Boston. Drivers gave their own versions of the history of Boston with family stories that added to the historical facts that they also shared. They know Boston so ask them for suggestions. We had a good time interacting with the drivers. Very helpful!

OMG, I can't tell you how much fun we had on this Upper Deck Trolley Tour! My mum, sister and I got on the trolley at stop one and stayed on through the end. This was our second day touring. Our first day, we met our obstacles with a not so hot tour guide. He was stoned and completely useless. We actually got off with ten other people to catch the next bus. After waiting over 35 minutes, we finally got on another bus. Since we bought a two day pass, we apprehensively traveled back to Boston today to try again. By the time we got down to the Aquarium, it was 1:00pm. There were two buses we could choose from, the first bus was empty and offered first come first serve seats, the second bus was almost full. My family and I approached the buses a little gun shy and tried to scope out the drivers! The empty bus had a driver that welcomed us aboard and told us he would be leaving first. So, we climbed up and picked our seats! This was the best choice we could've made. He had us from "Hello." Shawn was gregarious! You can tell he enjoyed people and sharing history of his hometown! It was refreshing, entertaining and full of incredible history! Thank-you Shawn for making a difference and turning our experience around. You went above and beyond with our group! This company needs more people like you! Your passion for Boston History is contagious!
