  • 4 / 5
    Very convenient way to get around Boston. However, improve your sound system and have drivers provide some more of the great information about the wonderful City of Boston.

  • 4 / 5
    We used the trolley first for the entire tour of Boston, then used it to get to and from sites we wanted to see most. The tour was very informative and stopped at many sites we wanted to see. There were enough trolleys, so we could always find a spot on the next trolley if one was full.
