We had a wonderful tour of Boston with SamIam. We learned a lot about the city, and the history. We got to see a lot of the sites first hand when he stopped and we got off the bus to get a closer look.

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

Not sure but don't use this service! Old Town Trolley is much better with a money back guarantee and many trolleys running so wait time is 15 minutes or less!
