Cheers! Freedom Trail & Old Town hop-on hop-off bus

We might be able to save you a quarter of the ticket price !

We are about to fly west and join the Aurora (R715) in Boston. Transfer to ship days can mean we don’t see much, but if you have a whole day or even better a stop over, you might like to look at the Old Town Trolley Bus. The day ends early on the Trolley, but this link we have will normally save you 24%, that is almost a quarter of the price on the Freedom Trail ticket. Whilst they say Boston is a walkable city, with so much to see you might just want to hop on a bus and listen to the commentary, if not between places just for a rest.
