We decided to take this tour to see the highlights of Boston. Our trolley driver, Sue, was very informative about the history and sights of Boston. We stayed on the trolley instead of getting off at all the stops. At the last stop, we got off the trolley and walked around downtown Boston. Then we got on the trolley for the last trip to the ship.

Boston was crowded and the weather a bit chilly and overcast. Old Town Trolleys have 18 stops but we only got to less than half. Time was running short due to the crowed streets and traffic jams. The stop at Old Ironsides was very good. Our driver got a traffic ticket for sitting in a crosswalk which also slowed us down. We got to see a sample of the city, but there is far more to see than we got. Info for future cruisers. There are a lot of trolley companies to chose from. We had pre-booked Old Town and the best part was they had a stop at the cruise ship.

The hop on, hop off trolley tour has great trolley drivers, they were all friendly and informative and funny! Some of the museums and houses require $ so bear that in mind. You will see many of the famous Boston sights and we ran out of time and stamina, so we didn't get to see them all as well as we would've liked. Towards the end of the day, the trolleys get full and it can be a wait to find one that has seats in order to get back to the ship.

Took the superducks hop-on hop-off tour which cost $31 per person. Excellent tour (these buses have a panoramic view of the city compared to the Old town trolley tours that RCL sales on-board). You can buy the tickets as soon as you disembark at the pier

Horrible set up and the operators were arguing with each other. We were made to line up with about 200 other passengers and sorted into groups of about 30. It took 40 minutes to get onto a trolley and then the large families with small children took the best seats next to the windows. No pictures for us! Also, this tour does not stop so if you want a decent picture or anything, you are our of luck anyway. It said in the description that you will see the USS Constitution...yes, but you will only see the masts and sails as you drive by! Would not recommend this tour.

Very knowledgeable tour guides that knew alot of the Boston history. I think there were 8 stops where you could get off and on all day. Highly recommend city tours and if you have a coupon you can save 16 dollars per person over the other trolley tours.
