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, Boston Harbor and everything in between. And, while you are on the bus, friendly conductors will narrate the tour with a fascinating and fun mix of trivia and humorous stories.

    In addition, your Boston Old Town Trolley Tour ticket entitles you to a relaxing Boston Harbor cruise, with great views of one of Boston's most treasured landmarks, the USS Constitution. And there’s more - you also get free admission to Old State House, Boston’s top historical museum!
