Boston Beantown Trolley and Harbor Cruise

Boston Beantown Trolley and Harbor Cruise

Seeing what downtown Boston has to offer has never been easier, or more complete, than on this 1.5-hour Beantown Trolley tour around the city.

When the trolley stops at a place of particular interest, hop off to visit, then hop back on whenever it’s convenient. With 24- and 48-hour ticket options, this tour offers the flexibility to create your own itinerary.

Each Beantown Trolley ticket includes the choice of a 45-minute Boston Harbor cruise (good May–October) or free admission to the Mapparium®.

This hop on/hop off tour was a great way to see Boston. Our driver, Sam of the bushy eyebrows, was fun and informative. We would definitely do this again but with a 2 day pass to split up the sightseeing.

Loved the tour! Historic places around Boston, particularly the Freedom Trail was pretty much covered. The drivers/ guides were both informative and entertaining. One of the stops was also close to the hotel we were staying at so it was so convenient for us. Highly recommended tour!

Very informative and fun. We had several different drivers throughout our stay and was very impressed with the knowledge that each of the drivers had about the history of Boston. I certainly could not have driven in that crazy traffic and they did so with a smile and told great stories. I certainly learned a lot about Boston from these drivers.
