We saw a lot in this tour and they included many stops on the way to Boston which is very good! There was many historic sites and famous schools. The guide and driver are both very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Reasonable time was allowed in each stop.

Make sure you do it only in summer! During winter its not worth it except the Boston part.

Tour itself was very good. However the guide did not seem attentive at all. Was constantly on his cell phone and speaking mostly Spanish to the other 4 people on the tour ( we were English-speaking)

I enjoyed this tour very much, however there were a couple of negatives. The tour content was great- the places of interest, enthusiasm and information from guide. There was a fair amount of driving which was OK but the van was not very comfortable and was difficult to get in and out of - the guide did help on each occasion (maybe consider getting a small step would be helpful). Also on the long drive back to New York the driver and guide could have been more considerate of the passengers by keeping the conversations between themselves more appropriate or not at all. I did feel that the operation could have been a little more professional.

This is the most disappointing tour I have ever booked through Viator. I will,be sending a letter detailing what was not up to standard, but mainly the guide that we had was terrible. There were only 6 people on the tour, we couldn't understand the guide, there was no itinerary to work to, we had breakfast at 9am and didn't get a lunch break until 3pm. The guide said we would be going to a particular place, and then change her mind, but not tell us that we were going somewhere different. The places we saw were interesting, but we really felt the guide was far below standard and the time was not well planned. Our hotel was near nothing and the guide didn't even know where a restaurant was to get dinner. Very disappointing compared to other tours we have undertaken through Viatour.

While the places visited (Boston etc) were great, our tour guide let down the tour. He was poorly informed, didn't offer any excited about his job and informed us he would be on his phone a lot waiting for answers to job interviews.. what a let down
