It was a great trip with Sam I Am. The surprises were awesome as well as his knowledge of the entire area. Highly recommend this tour.
A great day out
Debbie_C, Oct 2019
An excellent full day out that took us to the beauty of Cape Cod. Sadly we were a little early for the fall colours but it was easily made up for with the interesting itinerary. The tour guide was excellent, giving great commentary whilst driving and we visited some lovely places. We loved the harbour cruise which always gives a different perspective. Lunch was in a great restaurant- delicious!! The whole trip gives a little snippet of what Cape Cod is like and we can’t wait to go back!!

Bryan our driver was the best We had a late start and he couldn’t have been more apologetic. I thought he would shorten our time because of this but he didn’t The restaurant staff and food was very good. Bryan knew just where to stop and never felt rushed.

Guide Ron was a wealth of information and great host for our trip. The10+ pick up locations throughout the city make it convenient for wherever you're staying. We got to walk on the beach at the JFK Memorial then to the wharf for a fun cruise and photo opts of the Kennedy Compound. Lunch was our choice in Hyannis then on to Sandwich. Great 7 hr. day. I would highly recommend.
We had a great time with Sam.

We were a bit early for color, but it was a lovely day. Sam was full of information and humor, he is the best! . We made stops for lunch, a bit of shopping and exploring. I was glad to be in off peak season, much more enjoyable without hoards of people. The cruise was informative as well.

We had a great time. The boat trip was cancelled, but we went to Plymouth instead. Our driver, ''Sam I Am'', was the best!! Very knowledgeable and funny! Interacted with all 50 on board the bus and made the trip even more wonderful! The trees were just beautiful and the old clapboard houses were amazing! We met great people on the bus and in the towns. The glass blowing demo in the town of Sandwich was wonderful. My friend and I had a great time and enjoyed the day very much!!! Thanks!!!!!

Good tour. Our guide was a sub for the usual tour guide, but he did the best job he could under the circumstances.
