5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Very good cruise, really enjoyed it. Got some fantastic photos, boat easy to get on and off I've got a bad leg. Staff were lovely and scenery brilliant

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

It was good, very worthwhile and relaxing. ..You can sit inside or out, so weather not a huge problem. Get there early though, it's a very crowded area with a lot of people and excursions; it may take awhile to find the line you are supposed to be in. also, allow a bit a extra time to go to the Boston Harbor Tour office (small building with whale on top) to exchange your printed voucher for tickets to board the boat. Also, we had reservations to eat lunch prior to the boat trip at Ned Devine's Irish Pub in Quincy Market (upstairs). That was very good and worked out well.

Knowledgable narrator.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

We were sitting on the top deck but the sound system was not working on that deck so it was just a cruise with no commentary.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

This was a pleasant trip but what we enjoyed most of all was that the Tour Kiosk let us four take this tour because we had missed our scheduled 3pm harbor island sightseeing cruise because of horrendous traffic coming over the Tobin Bridge. We were very appreciative of their understanding.
