We got started a little late and went to the Tea Party Museum which was great. The secondary route to the wharf area was a waste of time. So we just stayed on the trolly back to where we started. You do need more than one day to much of anything. Disappointed that the tour did not go to Harvard Square. Last driver was great. Had sound effects.

The drivers were very knowledgeable and the frequency of the trolley as well as the stops were great!! The only comment I have is that when I bought the ticket it said that the 2nd day was free and I was inform that is no longer the case, so you should remove that information.

Knowledgeable and experienced guides make the tour interesting and fun. We did the whole loop first, then jumped on and off at various places. We did have a two-day ticket, but only used the first day, which is probably enough TBH. The busses aren't regular enough to be a substitute for the metro, and only go in one direction, so once you've done the loop that's it. Overall worth the money and enjoyable, but you only need one day really.
