Wonderful experience. Recommended for those who want to experience an America different from the big cities. The tour is guided with approximately one hour free for eating and shopping. The guide (Mr REDI) was helpful and welcoming, he provided many useful explanations to make the trip to Boston unforgettable. What to add, from Harvard, to the heart of Boston among the paths of the American Revolution. The visit to the reproductions of the two English boats involved in the TEA REVOLT was very nice. Advised!

Sitting at the back of the van is not comfortable at all. it should’ve been better if maximum 3 pax seating at the back instead of 4. Otherwise our tour guide was really good. She’s attentive to the participants and gave some tips at several point of attraction.

Trip was fun & interesting. Guide was very knowledgeable and knows the are very well. I was looking for a bus/van with a “Greater Boston Tour” logo on it. Our vehicle didn’t have one I saw. It would’ve made it easier to identify.

John was a very nice tour guide who took us to some interesting places of MIT and Harvard. Time flew by very fast. It was very informative!

Excellent guide, very polite lady who answered all the questions
