As a world traveler, I have been on many many tours. Sam I am is by far and away the very best tour guide I have had in 50+ years of traveling. He is a wealth of knowledge as well as interesting, funny, experienced, as well as, highly dedicated to his job and passengers! If you have a chance to be with Sam I Am, don’t miss the opportunity and if you need to make a switch to be with him, you won’t regret it. Viator is lucky to have Sam on their staff.With great appreciation #32 and #35

Taking a bus tour in Boston with my mom was the best decision for her to enjoy and see everything since she can't get around very well now. Then having Sam as our Tour Guide really topped the experience off. He was sweet, kind, knowledgeable, and fun. He treated everyone as if they were special. He really made the tour fantastic!! Thank you!!

We we were delighted with our Bus Tour of Boston. Tony was our guide. He was witty and knowledgeable. We had several stops so we got some exercise while learning about the historical areas of Boston, Cambridge, Lexington and Concord. We also got to see and learn about the USS Constitution by visiting the museum there. We enjoyed our stop at the Quincy Market where we grabbed a bite to eat. We strongly recommend this seven hours' tour as well as the New England Coastal Tour and the Whale Watching Cruise--all presented by Viator Tours..
