Please make sure to reference your question is for the Boston tour.
How many people fit on a trolley? Can you rent the entire trolley or do a private event?
Yes! Each trolley can fit a max of 28 customers. Inventory is very limited and events are booked on a first come first serve basis. If you're interested in a private trolley please e-mail [email protected]
Please make sure to reference you are inquiring about the Boston tour.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
This event is geared towards adults. Please note anyone under the age of 21 is not permitted into the bars when the trolley returns.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Please bring your ticket (either printed or electronic) and your ID with you to check-in.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
As long as the attendee has a ticket (either printed or electronic) it does not matter if the ticket name matches the name of the attendee.
Something has come up and I can’t make the event for the date I scheduled. Can I reschedule my ticket for a different date?
You cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Once tickets are purchased all sales are final. You may give your tickets away (again the ticket name does not need to match the attendee name).
I would like to add on one more ticket for a friend, but it says the event is sold out. Can I add on just one more ticket?
Unfortunately, no. Once an event says sold out there are no more tickets available for that date. We are limited due to seating constraints on the trolley and cannot oversell the event.
Is the trolley heated?
Yes! The trolley is fully enclosed and heated.
What time should I arrive for the event?
Check-in is from 5:00-5:30pm (4:00-4:30pm on Saturdays). If you arrive early that's okay, but we will check-in during those scheduled times. If you arrive late, that's okay too, but the trolley will depart promptly at 6:00pm (5:00pm on Saturdays).
