Needs a Tech Upgrade

It would be helpful to provide digital tickets so tokens don’t need to be collected. An interactive map available on an app showing the location of trams would be good. The drivers/guides were good, particularly Matty.
Boston tour

The harbour cruise was enjoyable. Johnny Boston (driver) was hilarious. However more buses are needed as when we wanted get back on we had to wait. The seats were hard & uncomfortable.
Bostons lovely, the bus tour isn’t worth it.
, Jun 2022
The concept of the trip was nice. The tour guides are really rude so I needed up just walking between stops to avoid them. Would have been much better off just doing the walking tour.

Boston Trolly

Ride the whole loop first, then get off at different sites. Map isn't great and finding pickup places can be a little confusing.
A Must do!

Great historical education! Fun and welcoming! We’d recommend this to all of our friends and family!
Hop on hop off educational overview

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. He went to high school in Boston and obviously paid close attention to history. We loved the "backstory" details he provided and gentle humor, especially with occasional topics that some guides would gloss over as too controversial.
The tour was very nice...

Viator needs to update their description.

The operators were all wonderful. Viator needs to update their description of the cruise. They say it is 90 min but it’s 60.
Excellent Driver Narrative and Recommendations
, Apr 2022
Stopped and had a wonderful visit at "Ole Ironsides" (The Constitution) and also the Faneuil Hall Marketplace...for lunch!
Where are we?
, Nov 2021
The narration on the bus was informative and entertaining, but beware if you get off to explore. The map labeling the stops is terrible. It's very hard to get off at one stop and try to walk to another, even though they are very close. We tried to walk the Freedom Trail got very lost trying to find a stop. They do not give street addresses for the stops, only a star vaguely placed on a map. A new ACCURATE map would make all the difference.

Dear customer, thank you for your review…we are sorry you weren’t able to navigate the city as you expected, this is the first we’ve heard from any custom of this…the city has very easy to read signs with colorful logos at each of our trolley stops which correspond with our detailed and accurate map/brochure, nevertheless we will take another look and make any needed edits.
Don't wait at stop 2.
, Oct 2021
It's my 1st time be in Boston. Generally, the hop on/hop off trip is fine except at stop 2 "little Italy" we were ignored by the bus 119 which was driven by; It did not stop to let us get on.

Dear Customer, plz know we provide many private charters that do not make stops…this trolley was on a private transportation or tour without stops. Signs are posted on the Non-Stop charters and it’s likely you didn’t notice it. All our regularly scheduled trolley tours must make stops as there are passengers on board each trolley that would require to hop off to visit. We apologize for any misunderstanding and we will find ways to make our signs more noticeable in the future. Thank you for your feedback. -Mike T
Tour Boston in a day
, Oct 2021
The tickets were too difficult to get… you should have a barcode to scan on the bus using iPhone. This is an easy upgrade for your company. The bus and harbor tour was a good way to see the city in one day. The boat cabin was foul smelling since the toilet were cleaned recently.
Good tour
, Oct 2021
Very informative ride through the highlights of Boston. Our only complaint is the one and done loop policy. We like to ride the complete loop, annotate what stops we want to get off at and ride back to them.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hi Kenneth, we appreciate your feedback…so we do encourage our guests not to waist the time repeating the tour for the reason that guests have found themselves wishing they had the additional time rather waisting time duplicating the tour threat they had more tine at the stops visiting attractions and areas of interest. Whenever guests have asked to ride twice, we informed them to do their hopping off/on first then come back to request another loop and most times they thank us for giving them the best advice that allowed them to maximize their touring time spending it off at the stops. During your next visit with us, if you find you have the time to make a second loop after you hop off/on, please request to make a second loop.
