A few of my friends are from Boston, and they were always bragging about how great the city is. I just had to take this tour, and I am happy! It’s such beautiful place to visit. Not only it has a stunning beach to cruise around, the duck tour and Edward M. Kennedy institute were also very exciting. I hope there are more one day tour around different cities, so I can visit all of them one by one at such an economical price.
Good experience. Although I feel that we should have been taken to Quincy market which is also very famous, and of course we should have had tours of Harvard and MIT, which are MORE of an attraction there. Otherwise, it was economical, comfortable, and most of all, least time consuming.
