Great overall tour of Boston. Our guide Stuart aka Stuy, was a “symphony of historical facts and current information”. We learned so much about Boston and American history. Wonderful way to see the sights.
Haphazard and Odd
Cindy_S, Aug 2022
While our tour guide was a nice fun guy our overall experience was just a bit odd. From the moment of having to climb into the back seat of a Toyota mini van to the random pullovers pointing out historical sites the day just felt unplanned and haphazard. I would not recommend this tour for the amount charged.
Average tour pointing out good places to good.

Harvard Campus. Our tour guide Bob knew his history but I was disappointed in the vehicle. I thought it would be more of a touring van but it was more on the minivan type. Hard to see out the windows
Doris_S, Jul 2022
The tour guide, Bob, was excellent. He was a very safe driver. We were picked up on time at our hotel. My husband and I are in our 80s and both use canes. The van was very comfortable and Bob was careful to be sure we were comfortable during the tour, whether we were walking or seated. He was careful to include everyone in descriptions and conversation. We could have skipped the walking tour of Harvard and spent more time at the Constitution Museum. Unfortunately, during tourist season, some of the museums in Boston are closed on certain days, i.e. The Boston Tea Party Museum. They ought to rethink that. All in all the tour gave us an historical overview of Boston,
Best Boston Tour!

Enjoyed the tour, and our guide, Bob, was excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this experience to everyone
Great experience!
Marilyn_P, Jul 2022
Great tour guides, Bob and Josh!! They were great and knowledgeable! It was informative and fun! Great way to see Boston
Terrible tour!
Karen_S, Jun 2022
Our guide was a lovely girl but she did not appear to have any training on how to be a guide on a tour. She was 45 minutes late for pickup and she was a terrible driver. I don't think the blame is on her though - her emplyer See Sight Tours should have trained her better. For the money I spent on this tour it should have been a great experience and it wasn't. In fact I think Viator or See Sight Tours should give me a refund!

Never got picked up at our departure location. Waiting on my refund of $290. When I called the office we never got designated a driver I booked a week in advance.
Mediocre experience
Kenneth_S, Jun 2022
Guide arrived late in a subpar vehicle. He was unkempt, disorganized and not particularly knowledgeable. He was supposed to meet us after the harbor tour and never showed up requiring us to provide our own transportation.
Boston in a Day
Stephen_C, Jun 2022
Tour guide Stew was very engaging and had lots of information and stories about Boston and surrounding area. Based on our pick up time he took us directly to the bay cruise which was very informative and enjoyable. After that we took a tour of the USS Constitution and then walked around Harvard. After we dropped off the second couple Stew asked us where we wanted to go. We dropped by Cheers then wrapped up at the North end where we were dropped off and had an excellent dinner at Catch of the Day. Bunker Hill was also offered but we chose Cheers.
Comprehensive & enjoyable tour.
Corinne_A, Jun 2022
Great tour of Boston historical sights. Our driver/guide, Bob, was a hoot and told us all sorts of nuggets about Boston - old & new. The tour says 3 hours but that’s the city only, then there’s a nice, hour-long bay cruise at the end. Bob communicated well for pickup, too. We felt we got our $ worth on this tour!
No words….

It never happened. Waited over an hour for the driver. When I called they said he was on his way but delayed but then they lost contact with him.

Disappointing ( very )
Paul_R, Jun 2022
The boat ride is excellent. The car part is very bad: slow, late, lacking information et filled with impertinent anecdotes from the life of the driver…
Best tour in Boston
Stephanie_M, Jun 2022
My mom took my sister and I on cruise and it ended in Boston. We weren’t sure where to go or what to do so we booked this tour. Bob was amazing, very knowledgeable of Boston and it’s history, also very funny. He went out of his way, after the tour, to take us to Urgent Care, and drop us off, my mom had tripped. I would strongly recommend this tour and Bob the tour guide to anyone visiting Boston.

Bob was very friendly and knowledgeable. Made for a great tour. Lots of knowledge of Boston history and culture. Having the tour on Sunday was great as not tons of people.

Stewie was a wonderful guide. He went out of his way to bring us to locations that we would’ve never thought of as a tourist. He was humorous, well-versed in the history of Boston that was fascinating. Highly recommend

Boston at it’s best!
Cheryl_A, May 2022
Bob was a fabulous tour guide! He was thoughtful, informative and humorous. The whole experience was great! If I had to choose one thing, it would be the boat ride in the Harbor.
