Steven M

Born on a Friday in the middle of the 1960's. I know I was around in the '60s: I don't remember them. Lost my parents in my thirties. They lost me when I was a baby, but apparently found me again. Have one brother in the first Adam, but many brethren in the Second Adam. Am the male equivalent of an old maid, and am coming to grips with it. Perhaps the Lord wants me single? Totally hate snobs. To me they are worse than murderers, because they destroy a person's heart. But then, am I not a snob for hating them (the snobs)?

I recommend purchasing both this and the Philadelphia Pass—especially for longer stays in Phillie. This ticket book includes admissions to places (eg, the zoo) that would cost much more if paid for on site. Great savings, and plenty of time to enjoy them.

This card and book is a great deal. I got to try various activities, not the least of which was the hop on / hop off access. Very handy way to enjoy and explore this incredible city.

My Review

What a way to see Boston! Got to see many interesting sites. Drivers/guides were professional, expert and seemed as if they give a hoot for their city and the people who come for a visit. I only regret that I didn't have time for more stops. If you're going to visit any stop for more than an hour, it means less time to explore other sites. But a well planned itinery on your part should minimize missing out on some. If necessary, take this tour over two or three days. I would if I could. :)

My Review

The tour itself was top-notch. The guide, Eli, was interesting and well-informed. My regret is that I took it late in the day. My lunch coupon had an expiry from last year, but by the time I noticed it, we were well on the tour. Eli suggested showing it to the people who took my voucher at the information booth. Unfortunately when I got back there, there was no one there. I probably could have used the coupon and gotten my meal, but by that time I was getting tired and just wanted to leave.

So if you opt for the meal when you book this tour, make sure they give you a current meal coupon.

I didn't even bother with the museum part. My guess is that it is probably impressive.

Day Trip to Martha's Vineyard

My Review

I highly recommend this activity. However, a couple whose first language is not English had some difficulty understanding the driver (from hotel to ferry dock) with respect to his instructions where to meet the driver for the MV tour. They ended up missing the tour, and had to book another one--and pay even more money.
I almost missed the tour driver myself, but caught him just in time. There are a lot of tour vans going around MV. So it is all too easy to miss the one you want to take. I suggest that the tour driver allow a few minutes to make sure everyone gets on board.

The tour of MV was quite interesting and informative, and there was plenty of time to explore on your own.

Safe, smooth, comfortable ride. Great guided tour. The guide sure knew a lot about Boston and area. And stopping to witness the nightly cannon blast from the U.S.S. Constitution was fantastic!

I had a wonderful time. However, the "night" flight would have been more impressive if it were done AFTER the boat ride. There was too much daylight left for the flight. That said, it was fun, safe and educational. :-)

This was my second time here. Every time I come to New York, I'll want to dine here. Great service, very attentive and respectful. I tried the ravioli. It was much, much better than the stuff we used to eat out of cans when I was a kid. :-D

Rides coming (from airport) and going (back to airport) were very good. Hotel pickup, however, was about 15 minutes late. Fortunately, so was my flight.
