We' have been on hop on hop off buses all over the world and can honestly say this has to be the worse ever. There was hardly a 'stop' where we weren't stationary for at least 15-20 minutes, on one occasion a passenger actually went and asked the driver when we would be leaving. We must have wasted at least 2 hours of our time just waiting. Thankfully the weather was very pleasant but had we been using this bus the following day we would have roasted in 37c. Even the map accompanying the trip was useless denoting only the number of the stop and not the point of interest/attraction to which it related. In short don't waste your money but more particularly don't waste your time SITTING on this hop on hop bus.
It had rained all day the day before our tour and our driver advised that as a result we may not see the foliage at it's best, added to which this fall hadn't produced the best colours. However despite a misty start to the day, we did see some wonderful colours and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our driver was very informative and interesting. We had plenty of photo opportunities and stopped for a lovely lunch (not included in the price). Overall a lovely day and I would recommend this tour.
Absolutely excellent! We shall return to Boston and will without doubt use the Boston Hop-on-Hop Off Trolley. For those of you who've never been on this, the seats are similar to garden benches screwed into the floor. Some of the windows are zipped heavy duty plastic, so when the sun shines they can be unzipped and rolled up giving fabulous vision, however, when it rains, as it did on one of our days, they can constantly mist up and leak a bit of rain water! Just remember to wear your water-proofs! The driver's are real characters and very imformative. All in all, very good value.
