I was a little bit nervous going on the cranberry picking tour since I read the previous reviews. I already purchased the Groupon so I decided to just go and make the best of it. The tours run every day at 2pm. I called to make a reservation about 3 hours before the tour because I forgot to call during... More

I went on the tour with my teenage children and we thought it was very good. We arrived a 10 minutes late due to traffic but thankfully the tour was still there. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and the drivers were very nice. We saw bogs and even went on to them where we could pick cranberries and try... More

The price was right,being a special,and the tour guide knew how to track down the harvesting. I could see that the berry harvesting is a business that moves quickly and doesn't lend itself to preparing ahead to be at a specific place to see the operation. That being said, we were not told of a change in the meeting place... More

Tour prices was ko since we went through Travelzoo coupon. No way would we pay the the full price for a tour of this quality. We showed up early and thought we'd have some sense of organized directions from the tour company. Some woman took our voucher and no on every asked for it again. We could have walked in... More

My husband and I attended the Cranberry Farm Tour this past weekend. It was beyond awful. The tour was extraordinarily unorganized. We arrived about 30 minutes early and were directed to a woman in a yellow jacket who was supposed to lead our tour. She told us to go to another farm where the tour would begin. Her directions were... More

My friend and I purchased a travel zoo voucher for the Cranberry Farm Picking Experience. We were excited to experience pick our own cranberries and learning more about the process. We arrived at 1:40pm (for the 2pm tour) at The Berry Guys and weren’t told or shown where to go, but happily followed a group who were watching workers in... More

My fiancé and I are hosting two 18 year old girls for a week. They are traveling with a group called "Up with People". We wanted to do something different with them to give them a taste of Plymouth. The ghost lantern tour was perfect. It was a windy, cloudy evening. The tour started in the graveyard. We learned the... More

We went on the ghost lantern tour. The tour guide had great stories to tell and places to take us. Walking through Burial Hill at night was awesome. A couple of "haunted" alley ways we walked through at night were the same ones I would not walk through during the day. I wonder why?? All in all, I would highly... More

It was a nice experience walking about town with a lit lantern and listening to facts about the area, however the tour did end a bit later than advertised and it was a lot of standing still after awhile. I recommend it, however it was not good for the kids in the group due to time etc.
