This was our first time to Boston. The Hop on Hop off gave us a very good look at what there is to do. Since we were on a cruise ship the seaport shuttle was a bonus.

Kathern_S, Sept 2023
Our guide was great, shared a lot of knowledge on the history of Boston. This experience was very overbooked. We waited over 55 minutes to get on a bus then we would not get off at the stops for fear of not getting back on. Every stop had people lined up begging us to get off so they could have our seat.
Good first impression

Laura_B, Sept 2023
The driver/ tour guides were great ! If you only have a few days in Boston,totally do hop on hop off first …great way to learn about the city
Awesome city and informative tour guides
Christopher_B, Sept 2023
Loved the city of Boston! We picked 6 points of interest that were accessed by this tour. Due to the trolley overcrowding though we ended up just walking to many of them.. I would suggest going with the 2 day ticket. There is just too much to see in this city to cram it into the trolley hours of 9am-5pm. All the drivers were awesome and very informative.
Hit most of important sights
Cynthia_M, Sept 2023
Stops included places to stop and explore more areas of interest. Excellent tour guides and we had at least 3

This is absolutely the best way to get acclimated to Boston and all it has to offer. The drivers/commentators are very informative and for the most part friendly. If I return to Boston I’ll be sure to use them again. Worth the money!!!
