First trip to Boston

We are driving and parking at hotel in Boston. Don't want to drive within Boston for sightseeing. Looking at City View Hop On/ Hop Off trolley tour bus with 9 stops and the Boston Old Town trolley tour bus with 20 stops (also Hop On/Off) for our touring transportation. Does anyone have any experience on either one? Thanks for your help.

I haven't used a trolley tour anytime in years but I do see Cityview discounts on Groupon and Amazon local deal emails that I get frequently. Pretty sure Amazon local deals had a half-off sale for Cityview on the email I looked at this morning. Old Town may also do those but regardless if you do go with either of them it's worth checking out those deal sites to see if you get a good deal if you decide on which one.

The Mr and I used the City View Trolley a few years ago when I had issues with an old ankle injury and was having trouble walking. I think in a similar case or if you are short on time a HoHO works well. However don't overlook the fantastic T for transportation purposes. Boston is also quite walkable and walking is a fabulous way to explore the city and soak up its vibe.

Enjoy your trip!
