Frequently Asked Questions about Boston Old Town Trolley Tours

How long does a full tour of Boston take if I don't get on and off at all?

The Old Town Trolley Tour is approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes if you ride the tour all the way around without getting off and on.


How many times can I go through the loop?

You may ride the Old Town Trolley Tour around as many times as you wish. However, we recommend that you get off and on as you go and take advantage of the sights. Many of the attractions will get increasingly busy as the day wears on; so it’s often best to take advantage of the stops as you go. In addition, you will hear essentially the same information presented each time you go around on the tour, although presented by each driver with his or her own style and flair.


Can I bring my stroller on board the trolley? 

Yes, the trolley can accommodate strollers but they must be collapsible and will be stored up front with the conductor. Strollers in the aisle ways would constitute a safety hazard.


Are dogs allowed on the Boston Old Town Trolley tours? 

Service animals are the only animals that are allowed on board the trolleys. A service animal means a dog, regardless of breed or type, that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a qualified individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Animal species other than dogs, emotional support animals, comfort animals, companionship animals, and service animals in training are not service animals.


What language are the tours in?

All of the Boston Old Town Trolley hop on hop off tours are in English.


How knowledgeable are the conductors about Boston?

The conductors are great storytellers and entertainers! They all go through a rigorous six-week training program to insure that their tour is safe, their information is accurate, and their customer service is outstanding.


Are the tours narrated?

Yes, the Old Town Trolley is fully narrated by knowledgeable, expert guides. No pre-recordings. However, an Old Town Trolley Tour is more than just a narration, it’s an experience! You’ll hear sound effects and much more.


Are the trolleys enclosed? 

The trolleys are open-air vehicles but have plastic “isinglass” windows that can roll up or roll down depending on the weather conditions.


Does the tour still operate in inclement weather?

Yes, the tours operate rain or shine, hot or cold, year-round. Old Town Trolley uses heated trolleys that are glass-enclosed specifically for the colder weather. Occasionally, they are forced to close operations for safety reasons, due to extreme conditions such as blizzards. 


Can I bring my luggage onboard?

Space on the trolleys is limited, but in some cases, it may be acceptable to bring a small suitcase on board. Bear in mind that the trolleys are designed specifically for sightseeing and therefore contain limited storage space (as compared to motor coaches).
