“drivers make the experience”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is the best way to get an overview of a new city. In addition the Trolley experience was our first and will not be our last. All tours are driver narrated and our drivers were definitely knowledgeable and personable.
We found that our ticket was good for two days in Boston and used it to get the full overview [2.5 hrs] of the city and then used it to travel to areas we wished to spend more time at.
Highly recommend this excursion.

“must for short stays”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

first time in Boston and was there for only 3 days - we did the full tour on the first day which gave us the option to hop on and off the 2nd day at the places that interested us - drivers had great knowledge and were very interesting to listen to - we did the river trip on the 2nd day and again found it a great way to see another side of Boston. Our tickets were fabulous value for money and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company and tours. Buses were very regular

This was my 3rd time in Boston Ma for vacation and we didn't had to make choice for trolley tours... Old Town Trolley tours have the people friendly staff , very interactive, lots of information, different tour routes,, good bus stops at landmarks... free cruise... free ruote..
Their buses are very timely, have seen more frequencies than any other tour operators....
Thoroughly enjoyable..
