Had a blast on the trolley. Got a 2 day pass free with my 2 day Boston go card. Great way to get a perspective of the city. I would suggest you first do a complete tour around the city to get familiar. Then you...More

Our drivers were very knowledgeable and funny. They avoided a lot of traffic backups and helped with directions and advised us on places to eat.

The off season trolley tour included wait times up to 30 mins. Too long for small children in the cold. Although the tour guides were great. Good sense of humor and history. Kept the tour interesting while we were on the bus.

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
