All bus drivers were great tour guides. Pay attention to all of them. They really do have some great knowledge to share. Our first tour started with Foxtrot (laugh at his jokes they say lol). Our next bus had "J." She was fun. And make sure you say "gahden" when you want to hit up the arena and are asking for directions. She says you might get sent to a garden instead \.o./ . Last bus we took with Ginger. She was super sweet fun to talk to. Even though she said she had only been doing the tours for a short time she was a trunk full of knowledge and shared as much of it with us as she could. Including a not so well known fact. The second state bird is called the "Construction Crane." (Badum Tiss) Overall a great experience and when we visit Boston again we are most definitely getting tickets for this tour. Its a must if you want to see the sights and gain some knowledge while you're in town.

Can't go wrong with Boston. My favourite city. Best city on earth. The bus is every 20 minutes from stops all over Boston so you can hop off anytime and see all of the city. The drivers Bear and Irish, were very knowledgeable and funny at the same time. Would do again even to get around Boston.

What a great way to explore Boston with little kids! We took our 3 and 4 year old along with their double stroller that we could fold up and bring onboard or else have the driver store in a compartment. It was also super-easy finding and getting to the trolley stops. I highly recommend.

This is a great way to see what Boston has to offer and visit historical sites. All the tour guides were wonderful, and we learned a lot of interesting facts and history as we saw the city!

J was awesome. She was so funny. I almost didn’t want to get off to continue to listen to her stories.
