This carefully crafted tour follows a route that takes in all the right places to maximize your time and give you a great introduction to historic Boston. Experience the birthplace of American Independence as your expert tour conductor showcases the City with stories featuring tales of adventurers arriving in the New World and their rebellion against the British Crown. Boston has become an iconic ‘must do’ City which truly has something for everyone. Visit the ‘Cheers!’ bar and historic Faneuil Hall, explore the famous Boston Common and be a part of the revolution by throwing the tea into the harbor at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum.

Did not get to go as we were instructed by rep to load at wrong spot. Tried to make it to new spot on time but did not make it. Asked for refund and no response from aviator in a timely manner so we could reschedule for next day. $94 is a lot to pay for nothing. Very frustrated with the whole experience and that was just with getting tickets and trying to get where we were told.

This tour provides a good overview of the many sights of the city. I would recommend waiting until after the COVID-19 pandemic when more stopovers are permitted.

Foxtrot was an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable, funny and made the tour very interactive and informative. I do wish the tour took into account that the only stop it maxed was at cheers which was closed at the time we had the one stop allowed in the tour. Perhaps choosing another stop for the tours at this time would improve the experience. Again foxtrot was amazing just that one minor observation which falls upon the company. I would recommend the tour at a later time than the 10AM one.
