Wish original driver would have told us at the beginning that best to get off at stops we wanted to visit as we went along instead of taking full ride first for an overview. He didn’t mention it until cruisers boarded and then it was too late for us to be able to get back to stops we wanted. Stops that were closed were not shared early enough for us to get to be an alternate route so we missed some sites I wanted to visit like Paul Revere’s house and Old North Church.

The hop on hop off tour is a wonderful way to not only see all the great sights of the city, you also learn so much about its rich history. Everything was at my pace, I got to get off at only the stops I chose. Great day!! I will definitely do it again, there is so much to see!

Excellent city tour! The guides are very knowledgeable and knowledgeable. They act as guide and driver at the same time. So they work very hard and do a great job. But they could do just a little less; not to inundate us, for example, with information and to talk nonstop during the 1.5 hour journey. We could be given a few minutes at different times in the course to just watch. But otherwise excellent experience!
