Logistics is a wonderful thing and when you can manage the science it works. In this case I am sure that a group of chimps could have done a better job. When you know by experience that a large group of people are going to descend upon you having booked a service the least you can do is be prepared, in this case common sense was obvious by its absence.

About 2 hours. Gives u a good overview of the town. On and off priveldges Nice to book for rat days that u are there. In that u get the 2 Nd day free. And u can go on the other tours for free or a discount. The boat tour is really nice. So go the first of your 2 days so u can plan the tours. Bit pricy at 40 bucks with tax. But over 2 days and the tour options, it’s much better.

The trolley was a great way to learn about Boston. There were many stops along the way to get off and explore. We did a cruise of the harbour (free with the purchase of the trolley tour) and saw the Aquarium. The drivers were knowable and very friendly. Just sit back, jump off and jump back on...

Little Dave was a funny and good guide; however, the trolley itself is not conducive to any pictures and the stops don't allow time for on/off. Too many metal bars on trolley. I've taken other tours where the bus is mainly GLASS so one can see thru it. Stuck in traffic also does not make the tour convenient. I would not recommend it, frankly.

Great start to the holiday to work out where to visit in ore detail later. Got it cheaper on the web before travelling and found out on the day that with the same tickets you can also get free entry to other attractions (on any day) so we went for the harbour cruise which was brill. Note of warning. Don't do afternoon trolley tour at the traffic is a MARE and it'll take ages or even end early!!

Great tour bus - buy this ticket first as it also includes a ticket for the Boston boat cruise - a 45 minute tour!! Drivers give you a detailed history of the city. Buses run every 15 minutes but make sure you are on a bus by 5pm otherwise you'll have to walk back!!

We only had two days in Boston. This company has three routes and two boat tours included in the two day pass. We paid $79 for both of us. That's two people for two days!

Have done lots of hop on hop off buses around the world. This one was pretty good but a bit different. Firstly the person who got 2 days for $40 was very lucky. We paid $50. Next over the course of 2 days we did 4 major trips. All the road tours plus a harbour cruise. The enjoyment is very much determined by the driver who also does commentary. Our first experience was amazing. Informative, hilarious, entertaining - really something special. The others were much drier and one was down right boring. The cruise was good. You need a good commentary in the cold months as all the plastics blinds are down and really there are no photo opportunities, this was bit disappointing but understandable. The other negative is that the map is not quite 100% accurate so when on the second day we tried to meet the bus at stop 7 it was quite difficult to find. If you want to hop on and off then you need 2 days. If you are going to stay aboard then 1 day would cover most of it. Getting the history was one of the best bits and we had some great drivers and one who gave nothing. Our tips reflected the quality. However if possible you need to walk some of Boston and at least some of the Freedom trail. You will get so much more from taking it slowly.

The hop off and hop on bus tours around Boston are just terrific.
The driver provides a commentary and points out the places of interest. Its a great way to see what the city has to offer and view all the attractions.
