The Park Service does a great job. The guides at the various stops are well-informed and interesting. Our group was well-treated and many used their senior passes for admission. Highly recommended for all ages.

Very interesting tour about the Adams family history. As usual, the Park Rangers do a fabulous job giving you insight to the presidents. Seeing the family homes and library with original pieces was fascinating. Well worth your time for a visit.
