  • All things went wrong on this trip. First, we did not go in a bus with wi-fi, but in a uncomfortable mini-bus without this facility. The guide was in a constant hurry, not giving time to enjoy must of the places. The worst came after freedom trial. The guide gave free time and combined an encounter near the market. The place was crowded, and the guide only used a black umbrela to be noticed... I could not find him nor the minibus. I had to buy a train ticket to New York, since I had to rely on the wi-fi and there were none on the minibus. It was my worst experience in an excursion.

  • Amazing. A must for everyone.

  • Best Day trip I have booked so far! We missed visiting Harvard Yard because it was suddenly closed to the public. However, Joseph was able to turn it around by giving us a lot of fun info about the sites we visited.

    Our tour bus had a lot of different nationalities on board, as such, there were 4 guides and we were near the German guide and we had a difficult time listening to Joseph while inside the bus because we can overhear the other guide. Other than that, loved the tour!

  • Good tour too, however the tour was too big and the switch between spanish and english was annoying, they should have separate guides for each language

  • Such a good day. Everything about it was great. An early start but well worth it. Splitting the people into groups with individual guides worked really well. Loved going to Harvard, never expected it to be such a fantastic experience. Amazing trip.

  • A lot of sitting on a bus but the product when you get there is great. Boston was always a place we wanted to visit due to the recommendation of friends. This trip gives you an appetiser for what a wonderful city has to see.

  • A long day with a lot to take in but well worth it. Our guide was very informative throughout the day.

  • This is a great whistle stop tour to allow you to see what delights Boston has to offer. We took this tour while spending a week in NYC and it was worth the early start. There is a huge amount packed in to the day and the guides are extremely well read in all aspects of the city. We were lucky to enough have a glorious day to take this tour and it really showed off this beautiful city to its best.

  • Really enjoyed Boston. Wanted to spend a lot longer there instead of just a day trip. Most definitely a place to revisit.

  • Very disappointing. Guide did not have enough in depth knowledge to make the visit memorable. Itinerary not great, better choices of venues to see and learn about, and too much time in the boring over-rated Quincy market which is not a market but a mass of 'fast food' stalls, which one does not need when one is on a historical visit. More places of interest need to be included with entrances to some.
