They only sell so many tickets per day but you are not required to take the tour on the day you use the trolley. Therein lies the problem...Because of the weather we delayed our tour until a Saturday. And apparently other had done the same...More

You can have your first impression of Boston in this tour in less than two hours. Nice. But in a cold day the view is not good. There are not windows, but a plastic sort of curtains and is very difficult to see outside.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I can’t answer that but we were there during Easter break and even then it wasn’t too busy. Definitely the best was to get around.
