Let's not kid ourselves, for a visitor from a small town to Boston, it is the most chaotic, confusing driving experience imaginable. That is why a tour such as this was perfect! You can narrow down what is most interesting to you, and plan your day around that. I rode around all the 15 stops to get my bearings and then hopped off a stop the next go around. The tour guides were very knowledgable about everything on the route. It was, IMO, the ONLY way to go!!!

Can't go wrong with Boston. My favourite city. Best city on earth. The bus is every 20 minutes from stops all over Boston so you can hop off anytime and see all of the city. The drivers Bear and Irish, were very knowledgeable and funny at the same time. Would do again even to get around Boston.

What a great way to explore Boston with little kids! We took our 3 and 4 year old along with their double stroller that we could fold up and bring onboard or else have the driver store in a compartment. It was also super-easy finding and getting to the trolley stops. I highly recommend.
