  OLD TOWN TROLLEY TOURS  
     
  "I am a International Tour Director from Britain. I have just gotten my schedule and will be giving the heads up for the Old Town Trolley Tours which I hope all my pax will be taking while on their stay in Boston. I was given passes to go onto the other trolleys and NO COMPARISON to yours. Everyone is great and I have gotten to know most of the drivers from years past. They are the best and have the best tour. Looking forward in seeing everyone again this year. Cheers" - B.G.

  "Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note of "THANKS !!". My husband and I spent last week in Boston, MA and purchased a 2-day trolley tour online. WOW !! Best money I have ever spent on any guided tour anywhere EVER ! Your conductors are not only impressive in their knowledge of the various sites along the route but also are extremely well versed on other interesting information all along the route and, most importantly, incredibly patient in their maneuvering through traffic throughout the city. They are also incredibly funny ! Riding on one of these trolleys is like riding a rolling infotainment mobile. It's awesome !! Over the two days we rode the trolley we had the pleasure of being hauled around town and entertained by 3 conductors - - Wicker, Lil Bean and another gentleman who's name I can't remember but he was a broad built man who liked to wear his ball cap backwards... Again, thanks so much for educating and entertaining us. We could not have asked for a better experience!" - S.G., Round Rock, TX

  "We took the Old Town Trolley Tour with Paul from Pennsylvania. It was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Paul was hilarious, entertaining, informative, and very welcoming to everyone aboard. He had us all laughing. I work for the Visitor Center in Santa Barbara, CA, so I have high expectations of tours. Your tour and tour guide greatly exceeded them! Thanks for a wonderful memory of Boston!" - S.R., Goleta, CA

  "Your tour of the city is everything you promise. All your drivers and staff are very well trained and versed in the system. They are very helpful which makes it easy for us out of towners. The tour was extremely well done. It allowed us to take the Harbor Cruise and walk a considerable amount of the Freedom Trail in the limited day we had in Boston. We will recommend you to anyone who we know that is heading your way. Thanks again." - T.Z., Mission Viejo, CA

  "My mother, grandfather, and I went on one of your tours ... I thought I would take a minute to comment here. We had an absolutely wonderful tour. Even though we live in Massachusetts, we learned so much about the history of Boston, thanks to our guide. His extensive knowledge of local history, as well as his enthusiasm for it, made the tour both exciting and interesting. Thanks for an amazing experience!" - J.M., Peabody, MA

  “What a great and memorable method of seeing the entire city when you only have a day to devote to it! A true capsulated version of everything Boston has to offer wrapped up in a rollicking trolley ride narrated by a funny, entertaining tour guide! You literally feel as though you’ve stepped inside a giant history book and
re-lived it, sound effects and all!!! One excellent advantage is the ability to hop on-hop off throughout the day!!!” - L.D. Cedar Hill, TX
 
     
 
     
     
 
     
  GHOSTS & GRAVESTONES  
     
  "My husband and I took our teenage son and daughter through a road trip throughout the New England area last week. Our best tour we encountered was the Boston Ghosts & Gravestone Trolley Tour. Our guide, "Rose", was fantastic and made the whole experience a wonderful memory. It was a blast and I would highly recommend this tour to all! Thanks for the great time!" J. B.

"I went on your tour two days ago and had Anthraxacon as my tour guide. I can honestly say I've never had such an entertaining and informational tour guide before. Anthraxacon was incredibly thorough with his stories, and was very believable in his role as "the demon who was sentenced to tourism" Hahahaha! Please, be sure to let him know how much fun we had on his tour, and that we give him our deepest props. Also, let him know that I found out that three of my closest friends are also the devil's dozen as well, so he better watch out for us in the paper. Kudos, and thanks again!"- D.Z., Santa Rosa, CA

  "My mom and I went on the Ghost Tour last friday and we had an amazing time!!! The tour guide was outstanding and he was what really made the tour. Thank you very much and we both can not say enough good things about the tour. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!" - A.J., Stoughton, MA

  "My son and I took tours on October 10 and October 13. Both times we had a superb time! The tour guides, Madelyn and Carmen, were both outstanding!!. They stayed in character very well, kept the tone of the tour appropriately suspenseful, and tolerated my son's questions and answers. I have taken many tours all over the USA and without a doubt Madelyn and Carmen were the top guides I have seen. I hope they are both with G&G when we plan to return next October. Please forward this feedback to them directly. They deserve the recognition!" - M.V., Villa Hills, KY

"Yesterday I took the 10PM Boston tour, and today I took the 6PM and 8PM tours. If that doesn't tell you how enjoyable my experience was, then I don't know what to say. The entire crew was awesome both nights. Whatever you pay them, it isn't enough. Thank you so much for the best tour experience ever." - B.R., Virginia Beach, VA

  "On my visit to Boston I went on the ghosts and gravestones tour...had a great time. Mercy was awesome and I will surely stop back on my next stop to Boston. Thanks Mercy, 'Detroit'" - T.C., Plymouth, MI

  "I was born and grew up in Milton, went to college in Cambridge and moved back to the area after 10 years or so of living in California. I didn't expect much from the tour other than cheesy tourist goodness, but I ended up having a really excellent time. I had never been to Copp's Hill burying ground, and there were many stories and factoids I'd not heard. I did want to express special thanks to Mercy, our ghost-guide. She was funny, energetic - and she can sing quite well! She was a delight and wanted your management to know what a gem she is. The guy who played Silas the gravedigger was very good as well. Please accept my thanks for such a great time. I hope to take another ghost tour with your company, and I'll definitely recommend you in future. Thanks again!" - J. D., Boston, MA

  BOSTON TEA PARTY SHIPS & MUSEUM  
     
  “Visitors don’t just learn about the 1773 act of resistance, they re-enact it… Disney-esque but ingenious holographic displays and films… The museum displays an original tea chest, rarely seen in public before. It’s a stirring relic…” - The Times

  "A great attraction for the whole family. Very happy we included the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum in our plans. The kids liked the ships, tossing the crates into the harbor and the costumed characters. The adults were amazed by talking portraits, and moved to tears by the short movie. It was a patriotic experience for the July 4 weekend. The Tea Room was also a nice visit. With hot tea and iced tea, scones, muffins, cookies and costumed tea ladies, in the pleasant smelling, air conditioned room." - The DeRienzo Family, NJ

From the boats to the costumes to the museum to the detail of the feathers it felt like a treat. Our guide was tremendous. We are already highly recommending to friends and family and will bring out-of-state guests when they are in town." - Andrew, MA
