A great tour, but ran into a couple of bumps
, Sep 2021
The harbor cruise was really wonderful. There was so much information given about Boston, and how it has developed over the years. We really enjoyed the Hop on Hop Off experience. Some drivers were better than others! But all in all it was a good experience. I removed one star because we got dropped off to a venue that was closed and at a different stop than usual (there were emergency vehicles at the regular drop off spot.) We called for a pickup, but no one could come get us. We ended up walking to our hotel using GPS. Not good customer service in my opinion.
Awful Experience-no trolley came
, Sep 2021
As someone who works with customer service the gentleman who answered the phone was very kind and tried to do his job. We contacted City Views for 2 hours from 2 different stop and not at either of the stops did a trolley come for over an hour. At that point, I’m trying to enjoy vacation and see the city so we ended up walking most of Boston. I understand you may not have control over traffic or your drivers but I saw plenty of Old Town Trolleys passing as we were waiting. For the price I paid I should have at least seen ONE city view trolley and had the chance to ride it and see the city. It was by birthday and it was something I was really looking forward to. I would never recommend this third party company or Cory views trolley. Save your money and walk.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear valued customer, I apologize for any inconvenience as we operate on public roadways and at times there are situations that are out of our control, such as traffic, road deviations, special events etc. our trolley stops are clearly marked with signs indicating our trolley stops but we understand Boston can at times be difficult and overwhelming for visitors to navigate. We operated a 1st class system and our tickets prices are very reasonable for what is offered, our guides are professionals and work very hard to keep time. I believe you may have gotten overwhelmed and lost which led to not finding the stops that you were seeking, please reach out to us during your next visit as we would like for you to give us another try and we will work with you to better find the designated stops. Very truly!
Great fun!

Driver Cindy was very informative and entertaining. She added extra information about many of the sites and made the experience memorable. I would recommend this trolley tour to others.
Fun experience
, Sep 2021
We waited more than 20 minutes at one location but the overall experience was fun and interesting. Our two drivers were animated and encyclopedias of Boston sights and history. I recommend the boat trip add on as the two together are good value.

Loved the love narration of Boston facts. The trolley was comfortable for our September tour. Add the Boston Harbor tour. It was wonderful!
Not to be missed
, Aug 2021
The harbor cruise is not to be missed. The entire trip is filled with wonderful narration about the harbor and the history of Boston and there are so many opportunities for incredible photos. The trolley tour is a delight. So easy to see all the sights, get off to have a meal or explore an attraction in depth and then get back on on to finish tour. Every single employee we encountered were so polite, helpful and friendly! This was a wonderful experience from beginning to end.

Hop on, hop off, and Harbor Tour: Great value and experience
, Aug 2021
The trolley driver didn't sound "canned." He gave useful and interesting information. The harbor tour was beautiful and had a great narrator. Excellent value and highly recommended.
Great for out of towners

It was good to take the whole trip then know where we wanted to get off and on after having gone around once!
