Fabulous day! We loved having Brian as our guide. He was fun, knowledgeable and showed us all of Plymouth. The plantation was incredible! From the Native Americans to the Pilgrims who totally stay in character you can almost feel yourself being transported back in time. The Mayflower II really helps you in vision what the voyage and winter aboard must've been like for all aboard. Great history lesson! Great restaurant, The Cabby Shack, was featured on The Food Network for their clam chowder was well worth it.... amazingly good! This tour is a MUST do.

The visit to the Plimouth Plantation was a real eye opener for us. With the historically accurate village and the actors playing the roles of settlers, you left with a good sense of what these brave people went through.
Not all the actors will seek you out, so do make a point of approaching them. Ask them things like where they came from, why they came, the voyage from England... they stay in character and will do a nice job of it. After the plantation comes a visit to Plymouth. While the famous Plymouth rock isn't terribly impressive, it is good to see it , and there is a great scale replica of the Mayflower for you to visit. Once again, you will find actors who will tell you about the ship and the voyage from a first person point of view.
Our guide was Brian, and he does a fine job of teaching you about the area. He's a good guy.

This experience was great from start to finish! The tour guide/ driver, Bob, was just awesome-and really went out of his way-literally, in our case, to make sure we were enjoying ourselves! He was knowledgeable, funny, kind, and the day flew by!
The Plimouth experience was amazing-not cheesy at all, and was a great way to give you the history of the colony from the perspective of the residents. They stayed in character, and really gave you a window into their world. We loved every minute of it. The Native American village was awesome, and the residents were so enjoyable to speak with.

Brian provided knowledgeable narrative with a sense of humor meaningful to how our 17th century ancestors lived. My 13 year old grandson especially liked the replica Plimoth Plantation village and was impressed with the character actors knowledge of history. Great fun day!

The bus picked us up right in front of our hotel and the guide was very knowledgeable. It was fun interacting with the actors at the museum and learning about historic events from the perspectives of the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. We also had time to explore the stores and restaurants in the town of Plymouth after visiting the Mayflower 2. We were pleasantly surprised to have that opportunity because we did not read about it in the trip description, and we were not expecting it. Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend this trip to others.

Great trip. Perfect organisation (pick up at hotel). Time enough at plantation and at Mayflower to see everything and/or enjoy scenery. Good tips as to restaurants etc. Driver giving information in an entertaining way.

So interesting to see. Only wish that it was in the original spot. Incredible to see how many people slept in those little houses, without air conditioning. Was great. Glad we took this one.

A very full and interesting day, made extra enjoyable by the local knowledge and friendliness of the driver. The Plantation exhibit and The Mayflower are very well preserved and the presence of actors role-playing 17th century characters is fascinating. The driver's recommendation for our lunch stop was also excellent. With so much walking in the open air, good weather is necessary to really enjoy all the exhibits, and we were very fortunate in this respect. Finally, the driver taking us to the little-known Forefathers' Monument above Plymouth was a real bonus. A great day out!

Excellent. Both the native Indian and English museums were well worth a visit giving us an informative, interactive insight into what life was probably like in the 1600's. Driver Frank was a real bonus being able to add stories along the way and showing us the National monument at Plymouth which as he rightly says should be in a much more prominent position in the town.

A great experience. The Plantation provides a real insight into the lives of the Native Americans and the Pilgrims. Having both perspectives was insightful. Plymouth Rock was a let down, but it is what it is. The town of Plymouth was fun for lunch.

A wonderful tour which allows you to see the best of Plimoth. The Plantation and the town of Plymouth were great to see. Our driver also added an extra stop to this incredible statute which I had never heard of, but was so glad we got to see it.

Very enjoyable, especially for the history fan. My only regret was that it was not a longer stay.
