It was truly the way to go. Was able to buy upfront with no hassles!

It was an action packed vacation, to say the least. We truly enjoyed Boston and the history! The Whale watching was magnificent, but other tourists would about knock you down to see. So be prepared for that especially if you have small children, even they are not safe on the sunset cruise. With so much to do, it is hard to pack it all in and we had the 5 day pass. We got to about half of the events listed and a few that weren't..

Great Tour - be sure to do both lines - it's worth it!

Special shout out to Cowboy whose delivery was easy to follow for those not used to an American accent. Information provided by all drivers had personal reference so very nice in that regard. Deflinitely worth doing both lines to ensure you get all the stops and to do the loop a couple of times with different drivers for that personal perspective. The two day option is to be recommended also.

Drivers were all fun and very informative.

I was born and raised just outside Boston, and my first job after college was is Copley Square. It was my wife's first trip to Boston, She had a blast reliving the History of the city and the United States and I saw and learned things I did not learn while living here. We did opt for walking part of the Freedom Trail, and we always found it easy to find the next pick up stop.

Was very good, but what happened to my booklets. Did not get them

Was good because we did but have to wait in the super long line. But one thing to make clear for other people. You should direct them to go to the window to confirm in. I thought I could just go in but was directed to go to the call window. If I knew that at the beginning it would have saved even more of a little line I dealt with.

Interesting & worth it as an ‘easy on the legs introduction to Boston

The tour hits most of the main sights with sometimes fun, sometimes annoying commentary from the drivers. The tour is reasonable value if booked online. The main criticism has to be too few buses at peak times with long waits at the stops, so you wouldn’t want to hop on & off too many times.
