Fantastic trolley tour and very funny and accommodating drivers - tour covers downtown Boston and even stop upon request to let you off at for example a certain restaurant etc - we never waited more than 10 min for a trolley - I can only recommend this attraction -
Great way to see Boston. Unfortunately we did not have much time, but it was still worth it. "Santa" was our guide and was very fun and informative.
