Boston Old Town Trolley Tours

Experience the birthplace of American Independence as your expert tour conductor showcases the city with stories featuring tales of adventurers arriving in the New World and their rebellion against the British Crown. Boston has become an iconic ‘must do’ city which truly has something for everyone. Visit the ‘Cheers!’ bar and historic Faneuil Hall, explore the famous Boston Common and be a part of the revolution by throwing the tea into the harbor at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum.

The trolley will make one stop along the route outside the iconic ‘Cheers!’ bar on Beacon Street where you can take that sought after ‘selfie’, visit Boston Common and the Public Garden, or have a brief stroll along historic and picturesque Charles Street. While you enjoy your off-trolley experiences, your guide and the trolley will wait for you to continue with their narration upon your return.
