All aboard! The Boston Old Town Trolley Tour is the most convenient and fun way to travel the city! Old Town Trolley City Tour will make one stop along the route outside the iconic ‘Cheers!’ bar on Beacon Street. Once there you can visit Boston Common and the Public Garden, or stroll along historic and picturesque Charles Street.
Can I bring my stroller on board the trolley?
Yes, we can accommodate strollers but they must be collapsible and will be stored up front with the conductor. Strollers in the aisle ways would constitute a safety hazard.
Are dogs allowed on your trolleys?
Assistance animals, such as seeing-eye dogs, are the only animals that are allowed on board the trolleys.
What language are the tours in?
All of our tours are in English.
How knoweledgabe are the conductors about Boston?
The conductors are great storytellers and entertainers! They all go through a rigorous six-week training program to insure that their tour is safe, their information is accurate, and their customer service is outstanding.
Are the tours narrated (no pre-recorded tours)?
Yes, the Old Town Trolley is fully narrated by knowledgeable, expert guides. However, an Old Town Trolley Tour is more than just a narration, it’s an experience! You’ll hear sound effects and much more.
Are the trolleys enclosed?
The trolleys are open-air vehicles but have plastic “isinglass” windows that can roll up or roll down depending on the weather conditions.
Does the tour still operate in inclement weather?
Yes, we operate our tours rain or shine, hot or cold, year-round. We use heated trolleys that are glass-enclosed specifically for the colder weather. Occasionally, we’re forced to close operations for safety reasons, due to extreme conditions such as blizzards.
Can I bring my luggage onboard?
Space on the trolleys is limited, but in some cases, it may be acceptable to bring a small suitcase on board. Bear in mind that our trolleys are designed specifically for sightseeing and therefore contain limited storage space (as compared to motor coaches).
