It was way too hot in Boston, so we decided to stay on the trolley

Great way to get an overview of the city and then go back and visit the highlights.

Severely overbooked themselves, 3 ships in port that day. Half mile walk from ship to pickup site. 45 minute wait for 1st trolley. Dropped off at downtown site to reboard. That Line was a block long. We abandoned tour and requested/received refund, post trip.

This was the non stop bus that gave us a great overview of the city. We were then left at Fanuiel Hall where we then did our own Freedom Trail tour and stopped for lunch. USS Constitution was closed on Mondays so we didn't make it out there. (Not enough time anyway). Shuttles were then available to get back to the ship

There's always something new to see in Boston no matter how many times you've been there. The hop on/hop off was very interesting. The harbor cruise was really nice.

You get a discount if you book online. They are right at the end of the cruise pier under a white tent. You can purchase tickets directly from them. Not a lot of trolleys running for the amount of people riding. Missed some things we wanted to see because we were afraid to get off for fear of not getting back in time. Stops at the front of the line were good. It was the stops further out like Fenway and Back Bay that were the problem

Excellent idea to have trolley come to front door, with limited stops for this short time in port. Service was perfect; guides very knowledgeble.

Great way to see Boston. Unfortunately the USS Constitution is closed on Monday so we could not go on board. The museum was informative.

The Old Town Trolley Tour provided a good overview of Boston sights. The guide was young and spent some time discussing pubs, etc while we missed sights that were pointed out to us by a different guide on the return shuttle.

We had a day ticket for a funny HoHo tour operated with converted trams. Good value for money. Also went to the old states house museum which was interesting.
