Loved this trolley bus it was fab to get around and see Boston . Also the drivers were very informative and know there stuff . Only did 2 days and this was very good way for us to see lots of things , "including cheers Bar " we got tipsy in !!! Brilliant
We enjoyed the tour for the general information it provided on tourist sites around the city. It provided an orientation for getting around Boston with little effort on our part. The tour with its "hop-on/hop-off stops was well appreciated. We took advantage of the "free" extra days offered to visit a number of "hop-off" sites and to further familiarize ourselves with Boston. The tour's value is enhanced depending on the drivers' spoken style. While all the tour driver's were professional, not all were equally entertaining. They ranged from OK to well done to "corny". Overall the tour is high value for first time visitors to Boston and recommended.
Even though Boston is a small city I found the Trolley to be really useful as you not only get around the city but also to Cambridge and MIT. I had a couple of great drivers who had extensive knowledge and delivered the information in a fun way.
The must see is Fenway Park tour, the new refurbished Boston Tea Museum, Massport/Black Falcon Cruise Ship Terminal and don't forget to stop into Cheers to have a meal and drink. A Great City and was well worth doing to enhance your stay
They were very nice and did a good tour, but the wait in between trolleys was very long or the trolley was full and they said another was on its way, but that was another 20-30 mins. You waste a lot of time in your day.
This trolley tour was fantastic! Our guide was great! This tour takes you all around the city and is an excellent way to get around! You also get a tour of the Boston Tea Party Museum with this tour, which I highly recommend!
Well worth the money and time. It was a great experience and I recommend taking this Boston Hop-on, Hop-off tour over any their completion. Our driver was extremely knowledgeable of everything on the tour as well as other side attractions and events related to each stop. This is the way to go if you want a memorable experience touring Boston’s historical sites. In addition, this is also a great education experience for the children.
We enjoyed our trip to Boston and this tour made it easier to get around. Included in the ticket was a visit to the State House ($7 ordinarily) and the Tea Party Museum($25 ordinarily). This made it a very good value. Also the fee covered 7 days of use since it was winter season. We used it for 2 days but not consecutively which was nice. The tour guides had interesting stories about what we were seeing and could do.
Really good value, we went in March which is what they call winter season, frequent trollers, lots of stops and you got 7 days worth for the price of one. Well worth t!
Bus depart and arrive on time about 20 minutes/each , it's very good and convenient . Will recommend to my friends who will travel to US . Only one thing that in the afternoon , drivers seem to be much less enthusiasim than fresh morning after whole day driving and speaking, but I do not blame them for that. I had relaxtion during the tour , that's most important thing .
We very much enjoyed our trip thru Boston. Our tour guides/drivers were great - knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely do it again!
Enjoyed this. Boston is such a beautiful city, and this is a good way to see the key sites.
This was wonderful!
I absolutely loved it. It was great to see the historic sites and the modern aspects of the city. It was fabulous to go on land and water!
We had two great drivers/commentators - Mike and Cracker Jack. My family and I had a lovely day in Boston on our recent trip; as we didn't have much time in the city, the Trolley Tour was the best option for us. Both drivers were very helpful;, friendly and the narrated tour was most interesting.
It was a great way to see the city. The drivers/tour guides were great.
It was great while we were with 'cracker jack,' but when we got on from the tea party museum to our final destination, our driver was boring with a capatal B!
We found the tour to be a great way to familiarize ourselves with the city and its historical heritage.
