We bought the Explorer Pass for 2 attractions. We used it to visit "The View" tower in the Prudential Center - a worthwhile experience, with no appointment and no waiting time! Then we did the trolley tour, but were surprised that we could only use the silver one. We didn't realize that there were 2 companies that offer these tours here.

Sean was an awesome tour guide. He mixed humor and history and it was great. Loved it. Highly recommend. You learn in an enjoyable way.

The guides were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is well set up and gives lots of interesting information.

Tour guide wasn’t very engaging. Said she didn’t know a couple times while explaining areas in the second exhibit area.

The tour was awesome, the guide was very knowledgeable, personable and kept it interesting.
