The tour, the van, the information and the guide were good and professional, but we did not liked the lunch in a chinese restaurant. too confused and expensive. we ate lobster but not tasty and at night I had a bellyache and my intestines complained! we expected a free time for lunch at the Quincy Market.

This was by far the worst tour I have been on so far and I generally really enjoy everything I have booked with viator. The guide could not be understood but did not matter anyway because he barely spoke during the entire day, had almost no information at all.

The guide didn't speak English very well and was hard to understand. We didn't really get much information on the things we were supposed to see. No one on our tour had signed up to take the cruise so the tour ended a few hours early and we had to take a taxi back to out hotel. I would not recommend this tour

I do not recommend anyone to join this tour. This is designed mainly for visitors, and the tour guide has very limited knowledge... so bad that I think they are part timer. The tour is not well organized at all. While Boston is a fantastic place to visit, this tour left a bad taste on our Boston trip.

This tour was not at all what it was advertised to be. We were only allowed 1/2 hr. at MIT, there was no tour. We were told to use the restrooms there. Got to see 1 bldg., the one with the restrooms. We were not able to go in the Trinity Church. We could only take pictures from the outside and were given 10 minutes to do so. We only drove by the State House. No stopping. No pictures. No tour. We did not have a short walk in Boston common. We did not drive the Freedom Trail. Granted, we drove on part of the Trail, as it practically covers the whole city, but there was nothing more than that. Also, a lot of the tour was being simultaneously translated into Chinese, which I found very distracting. We left the tour at Faneuil Hall, as it wasn't much of a tour at all. VERY DISAPPOINTED. I DO NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!
