Yes, the HOHO runs more trolleys in the peak season, but there are more people looking to use it as well. I don't recommend it to anyone, particularly on a cruise port day, as you will spend all of your limited time waiting on a trolley.Thanks so much for the information. It really helps. I am assuming there are plenty of taxis at the port? Probably a stupid question!!! Lol
My suggestion, and I know Carol (138 East) says this as well, is to take a cab all the way to the end of the Trail, at the Constitution in the Charlestown Navy Yard. This will run $25-35 depending on traffic. This also gets you on to the Constitution before most of the crowd. Then walk the trail back, stopping as you go for whatever interests you, skipping the others, have lunch in the North End (avoid most of the Quincy Market restaurants unless you want fast food in Faneuil Hall), and if you get all the way back to the Common, a cab back to the Terminal would be about $15-20.
