My two friends and I hopped on and off multiple trolleys so that we could see more of the city on foot. Each driver was enthusiastic and welcoming, while providing excellent commentary on the monuments and landmarks
I have lived just outside of Boston my entire life and am very familiar with the city. In my opinion, there is no better way to see the city than through CityView Trolley. The guides are very friendly and informative, the route hits all the...More
We took this tour on a Sunday afternoon. We got on at Stop #1 and got off at Stop #7 after about 35-40 minutes. This part of the tour was great - the guide was knowledgeable, funny, everything you'd want from a trolley tour guide....More
We bought a Groupon for the city view trolley tour and confirmed times by email with the company. On the way into Boston, I called the location. There was a puce mail that said leave a message. We parked our car in the parking garage...More
We visited in late February when it was very quiet so only 3 trolley buses were running (every 20- minutes) but this was fine. We booked via Groupon (US) and saved a lot on a ticket for 4 people. The driver was informative and funny,...More
Our tour started around 3pm, so we didn't have time to hop on and off. Our driver had a lot of knowledge about the city of Boston. However, he spent entirely too much time, trying to be a comedian. I found myself tuning him out,...More
We jumped on the Trolley Tour in Boston at stop 1 (next to the Aquarium) because parking is Boston is challenging and there is a big garage there. Our kids were all home from college and our son from Los Angeles with his girlfriend who...More
We usually do a hop on hop off tour in all cities we visit. This was one of the more enjoyable ones. We saw all the sights that one would expect. What was special was the driver. Sadly, we did not get his name. He...More
Some of the trolley drivers (who also do the talking) are just plain rude. Others comment more on people on the street / drivers that annoy them, rather than talking about the sights or the history about them. Though the route is good, and many...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
