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.

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.

Tour was an excellent way to see many highlites of Boston.The tour guide was very informative and made the 3 hours go by very fast. We had a lot of traffic on the day and this extended the tour by almost 1 hour.

Great way to get orientated in a new city. Tour was informative of our Revolutionary War beginnings. Easy on off access and made our tour of Boston so easy to navigate.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

The hop on hop off was great great for us to see Boston since we had been there previously. We could get tickets online and there was a booth to validate them right by our ship. Where we started from gave us an opportunity, since we were early, to go on a Harbor Cruise. All the drivers were great providing information and experiences which were funny. A great way to see Cheers and to go to different venues.
