  • Coming from Hawaii with only a sort time in New York we wanted a our that could cover the highlights of New York. We found that with Viator. We are planning another trip and plan to use Viator again for that city. I recommend Viator for their professionalism and organized tours.

  • Our guide Bruno is very professional. I learnt a great deal about American history. The itinery is well planned.

  • Manny was awesome!! Every spot he told us to stop and see or stop and eat that was perfect! Although the bus ride is a bit long all the various stops give you resting time. Would definitely recommend this to the other people!

  • Great tour with lots of information. Tour guide was great. I recommend this tour

  • The organisation is excellent, computers have made the tourist industry so good. It was a long day, and you have to be prepared for a long travel time, a total of 10 hours in this case with a well organised intermissions. The tour guides are excellent, you can't do it with out them. The visit to Boston was good, but not as good as the excursion to Washington.

  • If you have a small window while in NY to visit Boston, then this is the tour for you. We really got a good but very small taste of Boston on this tour. Be prepared though - it's a long day but worth it. The tour guides were very informative and helpful. On this particular tour, there were 2 tour guides, one for English speaking and the other for Spanish and Portuguese speakers. Happy with this tour and I would recommend it.

  • It was great to see Boston, but a long day most of which travelling on a bus. I would definately go back and stay a few days in Boston, nice place.

  • YOU DONT HAVE TIME ENOUGH TO GO SHOPPING

  • Boston is actually a beautiful city however we were unlucky because it was raining all day long. The tour operator decided to kept going even though it was raining. It will be better if the tour operator could provide rain coat for the tour participant. Because we were all soaking wet.

  • Long day but great trip, enjoyed Harvard and Boston city.
