Very poor & late & very over priced. A waste of time and money. Driving through the neighbors on the to Lexington & Concord was terrible. I would not recommend to anyone. Could not see out of bus and no time in Boston.

The all-day tour is perfect for people who love history! If you are visiting Boston without a car, this is the only way to see Lexington and Concord, as welll as specific battle areas and remote historical markers. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable about Boston's history, as well as Revolutionary War history. We were able to exit the bus... More

It was great getting picked up right at our hotel door. We didn't have to drive into the city. There were 5 other hotel pick-ups, but it was done efficiently. The day was rainy and the government shut down forced lots of changes. The tour guide tried to do as much as possible, but the weather and the closures made... More

We visited Boston 47 years ago to walk the Freedom Trail and have been to lots of big cities since then. We were finishing up a road trip and I welcomed the idea of not having to figure out trains, maps and streets for an entire day. This tour covered all the highlights as described in their brochure plus they... More

If you don't want to fight the traffic, and have never been to Boston, this would be the trip to take. They will pick you up at your hotel, great feature, and take you around Boston. You get an overview. Don't expect much, just someone else doing the driving. Next time I will know what I want to see and... More

Took a tour with Neal and completely enjoyed. He is born and raised in Boston and knows the city very well. The day we went, there was road construction going into the city. He knew a back way in to avoid the congestion thus still allowing for a complete tour. We were leaving on a cruise the next day so... More

It was so nice having the boston tours bus pick us up from the Red Roof Inn in Southborough. Our group was small, only the 4 of us and a couple from Canada. Our driver was hilarious and even made fun of how we Michiganians pronounce "art" compared to the locals. We drove thru Harvard University and visited several historic... More

I don't know how our driver Dennis managed to get us around Boston so well what with picking up riders at various far out of town hotels and then fighting downtown Boston traffic. We began at our pick up point around 8:30 a.m. and arrived back there before 5 p.m. We rode around in a 20 passenger van and we... More
