    The bus driver and the guide, David, were really cool and we saw a lot of tv and movie sites. Ending the tour at the Cheers Bar was great. The bus was nice and cozy and we learned a lot about the history of Boston along the way. Great fun!

    Making my biffy happy

    My boyfriend is a film buff, so I got this for him the other weekend. He was skeptical, saying it'd be bull---- for tourists etc. but he ended up really enjoying himself. The tour includes a lot of stops (even living here, I didn't know half of these were filmed in Boston) and lets you do things like grab a drink at the bar from Cheers (though, they didn't know my name... bummer) or at the one from Scorsese's The Departed, which was the highlight for my bf.
