The Hamptons, Sag Harbor and Outlet Shopping Day Trip from New York City

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was great. The bus was on time and the guide was great. It was nice that the tour wasn't a jammed packed day where you felt rushed from one place to another.

The only thing that would of been better was to of had more time at the outlet rather then return to NYC at 5pm. As the tour information advises 12 hours (7am to 7pm) we weren't expecting to be back so early. It did work out as it gave us more time to pack for our 30hrs of flights back home the next day, but I can understand some people might of been frustrated about this.

Boston Freedom Trail Day Trip from New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This is the second time I've done this tour in a year (last time with my husband) as my best friend really wanted to see Boston and after doing research it seemed to be the best option for a day trip.

Some things were better this time such as the guide (he didn't wander off and lose half the people). He was funny and made sure the group could listen.

Unfortunately though the trip was mostly disappointing. The bus was 45 minutes late in the morning and it would seem that they just cut our boston time short to make up for it. We had hardly any time at Harvard and it was VERY rushed. My friend was especially disappointed as Harvard was the main part of this trip she was looking forward to.

I am regretting booking this trip a second time (especially as the first time wasn't amazing either). Yes we were in and out in 1 day but it just wasn't worth it. For anyone interested in going to Boston I would suggest not trying to do it in one day. It would be best to actually stay in Boston at least overnight and taking the time to enjoy this very beautiful and interesting city.

My Review

This is the second time I have done this hop on hop off tour and I was disappointed. Compared with last year where the tour guides gave us a lot of interesting information on the city and the spots we went past this just didn't cut it. I found myself telling my friend the interesting information that I had learnt from last years tour.

We also waited about 45 minutes in the hot hot sun (32 degrees celsius in shade) at one stop (Ground zero stop) along with hundreds of other people before 5 buses all turned up at once. This caused pandemonium with everyone trying to scramble onto the buses at once.

We didn't do the night tour as it would of been a waste. It didn't get dark till 9pm and the night tours only ran between 6-8.

The guide on the Brooklyn tour was really great and the best on the whole tour. I was still disappointed though as we really didn't get a look at the Historical district (Brooklyn heights) as buses weren't allowed in those streets. We ended up catching a subway over on another day and grabbed some Pizza from Grimaldi's before taking a walk through the Brooklyn Heights historical district. The cobblestone roads and brownstone's were just amazing. If you could imagine no cars parked on the street it feeIs like you're back in the early 1800's.
