    This was a nice trip. The tables and seats could be a little cleaner. Friendly and informative staff.

    Cruise was not what i expected. Guess we were hoping to hear more history . The gentleman was hard to hear especially with planes flying over and at one point the mike went out.

    Have been to Boston many times but never it a harbor tour. A completely different view of the city. Very interesting architecture

    The 90-min tour was just enough time to get a feel for the history and harbor; the boat provided in-door and out-door seating and a beverage bar. Tour guide got a bit corny and elementary, but these guys have to communicate with a wide variety of guests. Convenient location, and easy-on/easy-off tour.

    The tour guide David Coffin had an ancestor that participated in the Boston Tea Party so that was pretty cool. David was funny and informative and made the tour interesting with lots of information about the harbor's formation and growth over the years. It was a good excursion, but my friends and I felt it was a bit short. Doing it over I would have looked for a longer tour that visited some of the further islands with the historic lighthouses on them. We weren't disappointed, just wanted a little more from it.
