Arthur was a born showman, living his dream as the proprietor and ringmaster of a traveling circus. When the circus fell on hard times, he drummed up business by transforming his performers into unusual and sometimes morbid curiosities, displaying them to enraptured crowds across the land. Over time Arthur’s captive performers rebelled and when they eventually broke free from their cages and took their revenge on Arthur, he found himself condemned to an eternity of performing for the very people he had previously imprisoned and displayed as his traveling band of curiosities.

Aspen is a current resident of Gloucester, and has called nearly 5 different states home – but Massachusetts is truly where the heart is. Aspen has a beautiful wife, a wonderful daughter, and too many animals to count. (The cat, Spooky, is the favorite. Don’t tell the others.) When Aspen is not haunting the streets of Boston (or the local Taco Bell), you can find her occasionally hosting a karaoke night, attending a drag brunch, or as a practicing LMT. “Today I define success by the fluidity with which I transcend emotional land mines and choose joy and gratitude instead.” – RuPaul
Hi, my name is Attucks. I am from Lisbon, Portugal. I moved to Boston years ago. I love our amazing city and spend a lot a time navigating and discovering more about it. I am currently concentrating on finally going back to college and finishing my Psychology degree. I have worked as a Dunkin Donuts Store Manager, an Interpreter, and I am loving working for Old Town Trolley Tours. I love sports and love learning new things. Something fun about me is that I can enjoy Eros Ramazzotti the same way I would enjoy Drake. I just love music.
Born and raised in Boston. I always have my cell phone and a chapStick in my pocket. I enjoy a great picnic by the water where I envision the author Robert Greene would write my life story. What is Boston’s best-kept secret? Most don’t know that Fenway grows its own vegetables. That is an innovative way to use 1800 sq. feet of dead space. Fenway Farms supplies produce for EMC level.
I grew up in a small town in Maine and moved to Massachusetts in 2016 for undergrad. I started driving buses as a way to support myself and ended up dispatching, training, doing maintenance, and running the Marketing and PR department. After getting my degree in biology, I moved to Boston to start nursing school. I started at Old Town Trolley as a shuttle driver in August of 2021 as a part-time job to put me through school. However, I quickly decided I love my job and wanted to be more involved. In March of 2022 I was promoted to manager trainee, and at that time also became a dispatcher and conductor. While I am still a full-time nursing student and finishing out my Associates, I am beginning my career at OTT by training in each of the departments to find where my best fit as a manager would be and seeing where this journey takes me.
Vendor Sales Representative
I have been with Old Town Trolley Tours of Boston for 18 years. It’s sure true what they say – time flies when you’re having fun. It seems like just yesterday that I was auditioning to be a driver. I was a tour conductor for about 6 months and I really enjoyed it. I liked meeting people from all over the world, showing them around this great city, and telling them about the important historical events that happened here. As the Vendor Sales Representative I work closely with Concierges, Front Desk Agents and Sales Managers at hotels throughout Boston and surrounding areas. Just like when I was driving, I get to meet people from all over the world, but now I am able to maintain long term, ongoing relationships with them. It feels like I have friends all over Boston.

I’m a musical theater major at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee and am currently in my junior year. I’m currently trying to become a puppeteer because I grew up watching so many tv shows as a kid that were FILLED with puppets (i.e., Between the Lions, Bear in the Big Blue House, The Muppets, Sesame Street, etc.). And a fun fact is that I have hidden multiple cardboard cut outs throughout my apartment for people to find; my favorite is the large Tinky Winky head 🙂

I am grateful to be part of a dynamic company living in the city of my hockey dreams!
Raised in the Jersey fens to the strains of Tom Lehrer and Belafonte, and nurtured among the dewy, firefly-strewn suburban lawns of the American south, Gordie has been a resident of New England for nearly half his life. He lives in Allston, the “City of Kings,” with his delightful partner and pal, Colette… and Shorpy, the cat. Gordie will be forever grateful to Old Town Trolley for releasing his inner tour guide, an entity whose existence he never suspected. Like a mastodon bellowing across primeval swamps, he hopes to share his love of this corner of America with our visitors to Boston.
Being a graveyard-bound pirate wasn’t what I had in mind when I was in school for graphic design and marketing, and while working as a waitress in Hampton, NH. I love learning. I’m getting good at stuff without worldly appreciation, trying things that scare me – and learning to be a good person. From pro wrestling to piracy, I’ve always done one thing well, diving in head first and doing my best!

Stella’s talent for magic couldn’t be denied… unfortunately, as a woman, she was relegated to the role of mere assistant. When magicians who worked with her fell victim to a series of mysterious accidents, poor, innocent Stella came under fire… literally. But don’t worry! You can still catch her show, exclusively at Ghosts & Gravestones.
Stephen grew up in Boston, just beyond the North End. When he was a kid, one of his favorites, almost daily excursions, was to hop on the “T” after school and go on explorations all over the city with his friends. With a life-long knowledge of the city and its history, when the Concierge position opened-up at Old Town Trolley to serve at the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, he was eager to sign on. Sharing knowledge of the city, informing guests of tours and cultural attractions, while guiding them to some of Boston’s finest restaurants, is enjoyable and fun. Stephen most likes the diversity of guests who visit the city from across the country and from every nation around the world. When people ask him what he does for a living, he jokingly replies, “I get to tell people where to go and what to do, which pretty much sums up this role, which I enjoy very much.”

I was born and brought-up in Boston. Some of my best childhood memories were in the North End, visiting family, enjoying gravy on our macaroni on Sundays, getting a single purple balloon at the weekly Summer Feasts, and eating entirely too much of the original East Coast favorite, Ritchie’s Slush.
I have worked in several industries over my 30 or so years of experience. Corporate America was no longer challenging (or fun) for me. In researching other job opportunities, I came across the HR Manager position ad for Old Town Trolley Tours of Boston. After reading all the wonderful write-ups and bios, I knew it would be a positive change if I was able to work here. I applied for the position, and the rest is history!
