The bus tour itself was perfect BUT the initial trying to board process was a nightmare. It was 100 degrees and we waited over 90 minutes to board at the first stop. Horrible. Not enough busses and they left half full.

Love hop-on hop-off buses. Stopped at Cheers, went to the old town and saw all the sites of Boston. A great way to get around.

I booked the Boston HoHo online before my HAL New England cruise and was quite pleased with the tour. The trolley picked us up at the ship and transferred us to the first stop. I was unaware that the tour included a 45-minute boat tour of the Harbor, but the drive told us about it and got us there in time to take the water tour first and then we ate lunch on the dock and took the bus tour around Boston. Very well done and with 70 degree temps in mid-October, the rolled-up windows offered wonderful views and photo taking opportunities.

It was windy the day we wanted to just stay on the trolley and just see all the sights. The guide was good but unfortunately since he did not raise the plastic windows we could not see any of the sights he was describing. The plastic is old and distorted and I suggest they replace them. We will have to google Boston to see what we missed

The beauty of this tour besides of all the historic sites is the ticket was good for a full 24 hours. We had one and a half days in Boston on our Cruise it allowed us to do a half day tour of Concord/Lexington in the morning and the rest of the day and the next morning doing this tour. We saw the USS Constitution a joy for me as I worked for the Navy for over 40 years and walk 2/3 rds of the Freedom trail and all it's history.

Hop-on hop-off trolley was a great way to see this large area. Was disappointed getting to them from the ship. Had a long walk to the booth, stood in a very long line, got on a trolley but had to get off the first stop to get the tickets. Very inconvenient.

This was excellent! Each driver was entertaining and knowledgable! Best HOHO ever!
