Do it!! - The tour guides were very kind and helpful. I really enjoyed having a live tour guide and the speakers in the ceiling throughout the bus helped everyone to be able to understand them clearly at all times.

Worth. The. Experience. - I loved the tour! The guides were great, personable and knowledgeable! They did their absolute best to keep to the schedule (please understand that they cannot control traffic or other unforeseen circumstances). I actually recommended this trip to a friend of mine who is coming to Boston next week. I’m just sad my trip is over.

Hop on Hop off Boston - Perfect way to get some history of Boston while also getting transportation to all the main sights in Boston. Only downside is the trolleys fill up fast, however I never had to wait more than 15 minutes for the next one.

Fun a& informative - This was a very informative and fun way to explore Boston. We booked the two day pass so we could get on/off regularly and explore several areas of Boston. The bus was quite large and had plenty of seats. We travelled with four different drivers over the two days but all of them were quite knowledgeable and made the journey interesting and fun. Each driver was different in their style so was ok if we went over the same stops. Definitely recommend you try as helped us get our bearings of Boston.

It was okay - Good site and the guides were good, but I believe they had too many people they allowed to get tickets so when we stopped and they tried to get on the next one it was full so we had to waste time waiting for the next trolley

Did not get off the bus... - Did not get off the bus because I watched so many others that were unable to get back on at stops. A lot of time just moving through traffic. Some attractions pointed out were blocks or more away.

Not so good. - Bailey was great! Otherwise, We got stuck with the same guide that you couldn’t understand and his words of wisdom were that people look like ants from the tall buildings. THEN, we had to wait an hour for a trolley and ended up taking an Uber so that we wouldn’t miss the Red Sox game. Paid a lot of money to have to Uber from one of the stops after an HOUR of waiting.

Waste of time and money - We were never told that 3 of their trolleys were being used for a school trip. We waited over 30 minutes for a trolley just to be told that it was full. We walked most if the day because we didn't want to waste our day waiting on a trolley. This was a waste of our money.
