This was my first time in Boston on a trip with my daughter. We chose Citywide Trolley tours to get around the city. Hopping on and off the trolleys, we got a great feel for the city , learned our way around very quickly ....More

This was good value at $39 including a separate trip around the bay. The guides on the trolleybus and the boat were very informative. The trolley bus driver/guide was also very funny. So if you haven't been to Boston before I'd recommend this as a...More

We took the tour, it is nice as a tour; but as stops went by we started noticing a pattern: All drivers seemed to be full of hate in their hearts, so say the least. The historical narration came among complaining jokes of all kinds;...More

The guides were informative and entertaining but the route does not cover all parts of the city as I anticipated. It never crossed into Cambridge or ran down Boylston and areas I had been on before when taking HOHO's in the city a few years...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

We got on at Quincy Market nearby the Marriott. Great location! I highly recommend it. You could find a parking garage near by. They come a dime a dozen.

I would call the trolley company and speak with the manager. Hopefully, an employee of the trolley company found it and it is at the main office. Sorry for this negative experience in Boston. Peace-Peggy H.

We took City View and were very happy. Terry is correct. The closest stop to the Fenway is Boston Public Garden. The landmark on the Cityview map and stop in that area is "Cheers" (of the TV show).
