My wife and I were in Boston on our honeymoon. I surprised her with the sunset cruise. It was by far the best part of our trip, we can't wait to come back and take the cruise again. It is so nice to have high expectations of something and have it turn out to be even better than you thought. Thank you for the wonderful experience, we will see you again next year.
The your was great HOWEVER I wish the website was more clear regarding purchasing tickets. The website says email confirmation is sufficient however when we were trying to board we were told we need actual vouchers and weren't allowed to board.
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!
Really enjoyed this tour. Not too long or short. We went at the end of August and we had the most beautiful sunset. My son took amazing photos to remember forever. Really recommend.
Well worth while, helped that we had a fine day and the scenery was fantastic.
We really loved the cruise. Gave all 4 of us a great introduction to Boston. The ship was clean, tidy and comfortable. The commentary very informative. Well worth the money.
Very relaxing! What a great way to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I got off of the cruise feeling refreshed!
The time spent on the water in the early evening is always great. The commentary was interesting and helped make it a great end to a busy day walking the streets of Boston.
Was good way to see the city with lots of information given. Sun setting over Boston was beautiful.

Great experience. Relaxing and interesting. The colors ceremony at the USS Constitution was impressive!
The staff were great. The ship was comfortable. The highlight was watching the retiring of the colors on the USS Constitution. That alone was worth the price of the tour. I highly recommend it.
Cruise was beautiful! We had no trouble at the ticket counter and the cruise itself was fun, entertaining and very pleasant all around
The boat ride was very nice. The evening was a little cloudy but we were happy since the forecast was for rain. After inquiring, the boat goes out even in bad weather so we were happy with a few clouds. If it was raining the ride would have been horrible. The history on the water was extremely interesting.
Great trip, good narration, loved the fly overs from Logan Airport. Only negative point was the usual loud drinking crowd that had to be heard over the tour guide. Cruises like this could stand to be alcohol-free. It would help people hear the guide better.
Very nice boat trip. We were surprised when the boat really took off at full speed. Beautiful view of sun setting behind the Boston skyline. Bring a jacket and scarf though!
As always with Viator all the booking was in order, however the weather didn't play ball at all. The boat was OK, the snack bar was basic but not a huge rip off. There were not many people on the trip, the weather took care of that, a few hardy souls went up top, the rest of us stayed below in relative warmth. Good wizz round the bay with decent commentary. We stopped near the USS Constitution when it did its cannon thingy, seems the sun was diving beneath the horizon then they set off the gun. Never saw the sun till we got into NH the next day but that's a different part of the trip.
Nice tour of the harbour. Highlight was seeing the cannon on the Constitution fired at sunset and hearing Taps played in the background.
Other tours also offered a cruise of the harbor, too much overlapping. But weather cooperated and gave us a nice sunset.
It was crowded as many say it is and it was kind of dull, the narrator was getting monotonous and bored sounding, but we enjoyed it just because it was something different. If you don't get out on the water much, this cruise is a relaxing and semi-romantic way to feel the breeze and see Boston like you don't usually see it. But it is not really something that I would do twice.
