I have spent these days with my family. We are really amazed to see the places we have visited. My father is nature and food lover; therefore, we had lobster meal, visited natural places and shop in quincy market. It was really fun, I loved the visit to MIT and Harvard University. Moreover, the hotel service and rooms were very good; we get relax at the end of the everyday.
We enjoyed the tour because it was very versatile experience. We visited amazing places full of technology as well as natural beauty.Tour involved a lot of travelling but it never got hectic but we enjoyed the travelling part because the transportation service was very comfortable. I am sure I will experience this again in near future.
