    A great tour to see a lot of Boston and learn about all the history! Super easy, availability to hop on and hop off at any of their stops. Great price!

    Was a good experience and opportunity to see the ball park, all the history, and the various aspects and interests. Tour was a little overcrowded thus the 4 stars. Wanted to be able to eat the Fenway dog as well, but not something offered, could be a $$ maker!

    I highly recommend this tour. Jim did a great Job of explaining the historical points of interest in Boston. He has a great personality that allows for a relaxing tour of the great sites of Boston. The tour is a must if you are in Boston.

    We went out and in the area where they usually see the whales but unfortunately it was super foggy and visibility was low so unfortunately we didn't see any sealife but we got free passes to go again. so next time we come to boston we'll try again.

    its a very big boat lots of space. it gets very cold and windy on the journey to the shelf so be prepapred!! get there early to get a booth seat, itll be worth it. They have a bar and snack but its all cash only. they had someone talking over the PA talking about whales and the sanctuary they view the whales. it was pretty cool

    This was an awesome tour. A little bit of history, a little bit of “yikes” and a lot of fun. Betty was our tour guide and I would suggest if you go that you take the tour with her - she was absolutely amazing and a lot of fun!!!!

    Fun participating in a town meeting, getting to hear stories as they may have happened, see history in action, actually being in places where our nation first decided we had had enough and just wanted to be treated fairly …gives a person goosebumps if you are a history buff like me…AND to taste tea like they had then…NICE!

    Learning the history and seeing the buildings. Enjoyed walking around the campus. I wished she would have talked a little more about the academics there but I realize that is probably a different type of tour.

    Absolutely amazing time! Was so lucky to have Brandon as our guide who was so friendly and engaging. He told us all about the history of the places we went and helped my partner and I take all the pictures we wanted! The food was fantastic as well: everything was authentic and made fresh and tasted amazing. The stories attached to each food were also good to learn about as it was also telling the story of Boston and how it’s grown to the city we know today. We had about 8 different courses and there was PLENTY to eat so don’t worry at all about that. I highly recommend this tour, one of my best experiences in Boston ever! If possible at all try and get Brandon, he’s really the best guide (no offence to the others 😅)! And if possible go to the mid-day 3pm tour on a Monday and you might end up being the only ones on the tour like we were! A private tour for the price of a regular tour!

    Very much enjoyed this cruise, it was a bit chilly so we stayed inside, the captain was very informative (I do understand earlier comments that the later cruises people can be loud so probably a little less commentary than earlier cruises, due to the "cocktail" hour). The fog did roll in so that hindered our sunset view of course but was kind of fun in its own way. We thought the wine prices were very reasonable and the staff were very nice and friendly. A great way to unwind after a long day on our feet.

    Bob the guide was awesome, first off if you are going to get a tour of Boston it really should be with someone who has the accent, and that would be Bob. He clearly enjoyed showing off his city and was very patient when we took a little extra time at certain spots of more interest. Great introduction to the city.
