Right outside of port you can book a "jump on\off". Did the loop of Boston once to hear about the city, then jumped off in center city to walk around the park and shops before heading back.

Not much content. Better walking around the town yourself. Such a lovely city. Fanueil Market very lively with amazing Lobster / restaurants.

Unfortunately the guide didn't show up - so the bus driver gave a commentary as he drove. He obviously knew the area, but probably wasn't the most eloquent speaker :) He also re-routed when traffic was at a standstill because of holiday traffic and gave us a different tour than expected. It was GREAT and we weren't sitting in traffic - got to see more Read Less

This is a full day tour that begins with beautiful historic Boston. On a clear day, without too much traffic it's lovely. The visits to the Lexington and Concord battlefields were interesting but our guide wasn't. He didn't take questions and he told us that he had memorized his script and didn't like to be interrupted. It really ruined what would have been a memorable day. He was extremely rude to the very capable female bus driver. Lunch at the Oyster house was also disappointing....the people at the adjoining table weren't part of a group tour...their food came out fast and steaming. We had to send ours back...it was cold and swimming in oil. I'd say if you're doing a Boston tour, take a shorter one that stays in the city. Read Less

Did the hop on hop off bus tour. Our guide was great and it shows that he loves his city. I was very disappointed with Boston. Every street was torn up with construction going on. The city's architecture looks like it was planned by someone on a bad acid trip. There was no respect given to the history of the area. We stopped off at Faneuil Hall & Quincy Marketplace and had a great lunch, but other than the building being old, it was just another mall with chain stores. Read Less
