My experience on the tour was fantastic. My wife and I enjoyed the entire trip from the bus part to the bay cruise. I booked the tour on-line prior to leaving home. I called once I got into Boston and everything was a go. I recommend this trip to anyone coming into Boston.

Taking the trolley was a great way to get oriented and get information about Boston. Each of the drivers had unique style and perspectives. "Mr. Kelly" was our favorite. He had a wonderful way with words. Our two-day tour was capped-off with the Harbor Cruise. It couldn't have been better.
