My husband and I purchased the three day ticket, which is well worth your money! We have had a great experience touring the city and have encountered some great staff members. Bill was definitely our favorite! He was very knowledgeable and professional. He knew his history and added interesting facts throughout the tour along with a little humor, trivia, and musical effects. In addition at the end of the tour he provided his own personal advice on what not to miss while in Boston. Hands down to him by far. Although everyone else did a good job as well, Bill did a phenomenal job!

It was great having someone drive you around town and point everything out to you. We hopped on and off all day. We had some good drivers, and a few not so good. Bill and Cindy were the best. They pointed out a lot more than the rest. I would highly recommend this tour if you are planning a visit.

The title said it all. Will recommend! I though $30 a day tour was pretty pricey but well worth the money. Covered all the major spot in the city, made it easy for ppl to hop on and off, reliable and bus runs through each stop every 15-20 mins. Good tour guide that explains history of Boston in a fun way. Relaxing to see everything while you are just sitting in a bus with huge windows.

Upper Deck conducts a bus tour of the sights in Boston & Cambridge. The bus is "tall", thus allowing you to see over the cars. The drivers are full of information, providing a standard running commentary, and answering questions. The speaker system is clear and static-free. Drivers articulate clearly. Probably the best part of the tour is to have someone else do the driving (locals know that Boston roads can be narrow and challenging). Even though I live in the area (one hour west), and have been to Boston many times, I still learned a few things. Buses are open in the warm months, enclosed in the cold months. You can get off, walk around, then get on the next bus 15-20 minutes later. They also offer a deal that incloudes their version of the duck tour (whereby you plop into the harbor and sail around). Price is reasonable. This is a good deal for visitors and locals.

What a great Experience. I took my parents to Boston with me on a business trip. I came out a day early with them and bought tickets for the bus. They had a winter special where the tickets were good for three days and included the Super Duck tour. So on Sunday I showed them how easy it was and then Monday and Tuesday they had a blast going all over without a worry. Each evening they came back and told stories of their funny tour guides. Thank you for taking care of my parents so well!
