    One of the most important places in the USA’s past and present, Boston is steeped in history and culture. And, if you take this flexible hop-on hop-off Old Town Trolley Tour, you’ll get an up close and in-depth look at it all.

    While on board the Trolley, you’ll feel you’ve journeyed back in time to the era of the first colonists. Imagine Paul Revere making his historic “midnight ride” and hear tales of how he and other famous settlers fought for freedom. As the Trolley bus makes its way through the city, you’ll have the freedom to get off and back on as often as you wish; and there’s always another trolley coming along soon.

    A Trolley tour is the best way to see city sights from Faneuil Hall to the historic Ballpark. And, while you are on the bus, friendly conductors will narrate the tour with a fascinating and fun mix of trivia and humorous stories.
