What people are saying about New England Aquarium

Great way to get familiar with the city in an informative entertaining way! Note, with hopping on and off, you have to watch your time otherwise you won't hit all the stops. Also, check to see which stops may be closed! Last minute changes with the city (like construction) can close a stop.

Es war ein perfekter Einstieg für die Stadtreise. So lernten wir die Stadt bereits etwas kennen - auch über die History der Stadt - und wussten, wie die weitere Besichtigung der Stadt aussehen könnte. Die Tourguides waren sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend.

It was an awesome historical tour of Boston with lots of comedy thrown in along the way. Our guide, Crafty, did a great job keeping us entertained along the whole tour!! I would totally recommend this tour to anyone visiting Boston!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trolley tour. Our driver, Tiger, was upbeat, entertaining as well as very informative. His historical stories were highly interesting. We definitely recommend this tour as a great overview of Boston.

A perfect way to see Boston. Many stops and the drivers tell a lot about the history of Boston. We think Boston is a very beautiful city.
