My trip with Matt from Boston along the Kancamagus Hiighway to see the leaves in New Hampshire was so delightful that it made up for the fact that we were a little past peak color season. He's a seasoned hiker and rock-and-ice climber, with an obvious passion for and knowledge about the White Mountains. He chose destinations for some short walk-abouts that we never could have found on our own - thrilling gorges and pristine lakes. Because I was the oldest member of the group (there were 7 of us in a comfortable van that could easily have held five more), Matt unobtrusively looked out for me. He even went out of his way to pick me up and drop me off at my center-city residence. Matt's narrative was always informational and interesting. On the way home, he was generous with suggestions about Boston for the visiting folks, and he gently steered the conversation away from the controversial subjects that one of the guests brought up. He is truly a masterful and unusual guide.Remove review
We were picked up on time from our hotel in an almost new 14 seat bus. The driver gave us a knowledgeable commentary along the way. The leaves turned more as we and headed north and the knowledge of the driver showed as he knew the best places to see. In North Conway he recommended the Stairway Café was excellent (see separate review).
This tour lasted about 12 hours. The money I paid for is well worth it. Our guide, Matt is excellent. He stopped at many nice places for us to take pictures. Kancamagus Highway is so pretty with fall foliage and the view is speechless. It is a fantastic drive from Lincoln to Conway. We had about 2 hrs stop at the town of North Conway for lunch. The air in the mountain was so fresh and pleasant. The view at White Mountain exceeded my expectation.
