Great experience. I booked this tour last month. I and my son joined from New York. A become happy to saw a comfortable and well maintain bus. The guide was a fresh young man with a big smile. All visited places were best and you can’t compare one from another. Love every movement of this fantastic journey. Special thanks to the best team and tour bus service.
Woo! What a pleasant experience of Boston Duck Tour to see the city from the land and water. History is just there for the visitors as it was for me and was better explained by my tour guide. Being a student of research I was excited to visit The Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. I am a food lover, so I enjoyed the Boston Lobster Meal. The whole team was supportive and accommodating.
This was my first experience with this bus tour service. The tour was a bit long, but it was interesting; we covered many amazing places. The timing of bus service was on time and I found this quite well organized. The fun of tour guide during White Mountain National Forest visit was so good. Boston Lobster Meal was a new experience for me. Too many places covering in less time was a bit hectic but I enjoyed the trip. Overall the trip was astonishing and we had a superb time. Thanks.
Best tour. The tour was well organized and we covered all places mention in the plan. The guide and driver were trained and professional. They were listing the problem of travelers very patiently (as the group was large and one couple was continuity asking irrelevant and irritating questions). The places were beautiful and worth to visit. I like the canyon mountain area very much, I really enjoy the beauty of nature. I recommend to take tickets and enjoy the tram ride and enjoy the scenic area from the top of the mountain. Highly recommended.
I was very excited about this tour. The places were new to me. State parks were full of natural beauty and the views were stunning. Disappointment starts when from the third day when Mr. M. joined as a guide. he was such a rude and impolite. He spoiled the tour. Tour company must train their guides first.
