We spent a couple days as tourists in Boston. Decided to book the hop on hop off Trolly and Harbor Cruise tours and enjoyed both. The guides were dynamic and informative. Definitely a great way to view and enjoy the city.

I don't believe it's open in the Winter to be honest. We went out mid November and I think that might have been the last weekend of the season. Probably doesn't reopen until the Spring. Worth it though it was great :-)

Yes. We are permitted to take suitcase in the ferry. In fact ferry transportation is there to Logan Airport and people are carrying suitcases.
