Boston: Bus Tours
The Athens of America
It is possible to see the best that Boston has to offer via both bus tours and trolley tours. The Boston Total Experience bus tour is a seven hour tour which operates for four months of the year, between June and October. The bus tour combines the old Boston of Beacon Hill as well as the modern architecture of new Boston. The tour is comprehensive but quite expensive. An adult ticket will set you back €50 and a child ticket costs €28. The cheaper alternative is a trolley tour around Boston. The trolley tour is branded as “transportainment”, a sightseeing tour with a difference. You will hop aboard one of the charming trolleys and experience a fully narrated tour of the city. You will take in Downtown, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, the Theater District and the Waterfront District. The day tour runs throughout the year and lasts one hour and forty-five minutes at a cost of €25 for adults and €10 for children.
