We were going to do the "Duck Tour" however, they were not running; so, we decided to do the hop-on hop-off Upper Deck Trolley Tour because it INCLUDED a Duck boat tour. Winter in Boston can be daunting, however, we caught a great weekend and great day to ride the Trolley AND get in the water. The guides were excellent and with the free tickets for other attractions it was a great value. Best way to get an overview of the whole city and ALL the high points.

our hotel in boston (marriot ) had a tour desk - we decided to take their advise and
selected a trolley tour good for two days of our three day stay .great choice - we got
picked up within a block of the hotel and rode it all day - you can get off at about 17
different stops (if i remember #) and then get back on the next one that comes along.
found it to be a great way to tour boston at a reasonable price. they run from around
eight in the morning till five in afternoon. worked for us just great - had lunch at a stop
in the italian north end - then dinner at a stop near our hotel - then just short walk to
our hotel - great way to tour boston. every driver had a different personality and some
knew more than others but they where all pleasant and entertaining.

We really enjoyed this tour. We had great views all around and our driver was amazingly knowledgeable about the city sights and their history. If you're staying more than a few days, you can reuse your ticket for 3 days. Well worth it you plan to hop on/off.

My hotel guy recommend this over others and I did found it exactly same as described. Two days for no extra money, Trip to Cambridge, One free tour.(I took Charles River Boat).

I was touring for around 6 hours each day(12+ in total) and I was still not able to cover all of it. The tour is definitely long as they claim and on top of that Boston is full of history, numerous stories and several place to stop by; and the tour guides/drivers does really well in making you familiar with it quickly.

One thing I liked particularly was the placement of seats; it is quite high and clubbed with bigger open windows; it gives you ample opportunity to take good images from with in the bus.

The frequency of buses was good; I did not wait for more that 15 mins any time. I never faced a single issue through out the tour.

Kudos for perfect organization.
