The Hop on and Hop Off bus in Boston is quite informative but I recommend you take the 48 hour tour as there is too much to see in just 24 hours. Getting on and off the bus to fit in all the activities.

Boston Whale Watching Cruise by High-Speed Catamaran
Whale watching experience
, Jan 2020
Overall very good experience: have seen several whales from short distance, guided by professional crew that was giving also insights for the life of whales. Excellent experience in general, only minus that boat was very crowded. I would definitely recommend this cruise.
We had been planning to do whale watching on our anniversary for the last 5 years or so! First actual anniversary day the boat tour was cancelled due to weather. Amazing and professional staff rescheduled it for the following day for us in less than 10 minutes! We ended up finally getting in the boat and experiencing whale watching! 5 stars from us for the service!

Tim was awesome. There was a ton of history packed into a cold February walk, with some well-timed stops for food in between. Italian sandwiches in the North End are the best I've had... And I've been to Italy! Highly recommend.
OUr Tour Guide Bob was the sunshine for our dreary/damp tour. He kept the tour light, informative , creative and had us eating at the right intervals. Bob was a wealth of knowledge of the North End. I highly recommend this tour group.

My girlfriends and I did a tour of Boston with Boston Private City Tour. It was wonderful. Sam our driver and tour guide picked us up at our hotel and drove us all over Boston for four hours pointing out every important site and giving us the history of the area. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all live in Boston suburbs and have been in and out of Boston for years, but we learned things about the city we never knew before. We had the opportunity to customize the tour, but we allowed Sam to be in charge and we were very happy with his route around town.
Sam picked us up at the cruise terminal & gave us a professional & courteous private tour, including sites that were not usually included in big bus tours. At the end of the 4 hour tour, Sam dropped us off at Logan Airport. Couldn't have had a better time between end of cruise & catching flight home. Highly recommended.

Katie, our guide, was awesome. The whole tour was full of information. Katie is a great story teller and also went out of her way to make suggestions as to other venues to visit, places to eat, and how to maneuver around Salem.
Our tour guide Katie was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Salem, and her family has been in Salem for many generations. We had a fairly small group which was nice because we were able to ask lots of questions. Katie was patient and thorough. She explained everything and kept it interesting. I wasn’t sure if the tour would be too scary for our 10 year old, but it was fine. Our tour was 12:30pm, but I think nighttime would be more “spooky” and add to the ambiance of the town, however I would hate to miss the graveyard which is only accessible before sundown. I recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning the real story behind the Salem witch trials!!

Booked the tour on recommendation from tripadvisor rating. Easy transaction to book tickets. Our tour guide Max Martial Arts was excellent. He had great knowledge of the city and was quite funny. I never heard so many puns in such a short space of time and really entertained everybody. He really engages with everybody on the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

Plenty of time for lunch and exploring at Plymouth before a very interesting visit to the Plimouth plantation to learn about the Pilgrims and their relationship with the native americans as they made a new home.

Prevuew Boston Mini-Bus Tour - Lynda - Robert & Kay Watson
, Oct 2019
Lynda was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, happy, friendly, and accommodating. She was extremely attentive to the questions from the tour group and very responsive with intelligent and well informed answers.
The selection of tour sites was excellent and what we were seeking.
I chose this tour because I had never visited Lexington and Concord and only had half a day to spend on a tour with 2 friends who were visiting. It was the perfect choice! Our tour guide, Lynda, was fun, energetic and full of knowledge. We learned a lot and had some laughs while we enjoyed the beauty and history of the Boston area.
