It was extremely enjoyable riding the Trolly around Boston. We had three different great guys telling us all about downtown Boston and it’s history. Went around twice in one day and, got off and back on several times. Comfortable seats and we were lucky to have great weather. It’s interesting to note that each driver has a little different information, along with of course historical information, to give.

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!!!
