Great tour
Janet_T, May 2022
Kristin was an excellent, knowledgeable tour guide, who gave much extra interesting info and added in special historical and scenic stops. She did her best to make our tour and day extra special. She gave good tips on lunch and the town for our free time.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for this GREAT 5 star review of our Plymouth day trip. A tour with Kristin is an amazing experience. It's as if you are being chauffeured around by your best friend. She has a way of making everyone feel extremely comfortable and this just adds to everyone's overall enjoyment. Not to mention, her knowledge of the area is off the charts! I am glad that you enjoyed your day. Kind Regards, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.
A History-Lover's Dream!
Lisa_M, Oct 2021
Our guide, Kristin, was delightful. Her sense of humor and all of the details she was able to share made the tour exceptional. If you are a history lover, you will really get your money's worth here. If you have ancestors who came over on the Mayflower, this tour provides a great overview of the area where they settled. Some highlights: * The John Alden house in Duxbury. We had several people on our tour whose ancestors founded that town in 1637. * Quincy, Massachusetts: the John Adams home (Peacefield) and Hancock Cemetery (named after Reverend John Hancock, father of John Hancock who signed the Declaration of Independence.) Also, the first Dunkin Donuts! We filled up on pumpkin donuts. * Filming location of "The Witches of Eastwick." * Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, Plimoth/Patuxet Museums, National Monument to the Forefathers. A shout out to "Tavern on the Wharf" for the best fish and chips I've ever had. This restaurant is a short walk from the Mayflower II. * And so much more. Beautiful architecture. lovely coastlines, lighthouses. I definitely want to come back and spend a lot more time in this area, but this tour gave us an excellent taste of what is there. We are so glad we signed up. Both I and my 17-year old had a great time. Thank you!
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you so much for this incredibly detailed AMAZING 5 star review of our Plymouth day trip. There is so much history in this area and we try to touch upon as much as we can. Kristin is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to this and her personality just enhances the journey. I am glad that you had such a wonderful day. I appreciate you sharing your experience. Kind Regards, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.
Good day trip overall
Mark_S, Oct 2021
Visiting John Adams home and the Plymouth plantation was great. Bus was uncomfortable, we were stuck in the last row.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you for the 4 star review. This is a very popular day trip and does sell out almost every day. We do always leave 2 or 3 seats unoccupied to allow for odd numbered parties, etc. Unfortunately, sometimes someone needs to sit in the back row. I apologize if you were uncomfortable. Kind Regards, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.
Wonderful, informative, fun trip!!!
Marcie_S, Oct 2021
Kristen, our guide, was a wealth of knowledge on the local history. She was an excellent tour guide and went our of her way and off the beaten path to give us an exceptional touring experience of the local history. Our whole group of five was very impressed with her friendly personality, knowledge and willingness to share the rich heritage of the birthplace of our great nation. We will highly recommend this tour to our family and friends.

Cheryl_K, Oct 2021
Kristin was great. She was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the area and history. We saw many sites, not just Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower. Would highly recommend if you have an extra day in Boston.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you for this GREAT 5 star review of our Plymouth day trip. Kristin is an amazing tour guide that makes her guests feel like lifelong friends. There is not a tour around this area that shows you more of the local sites. I am glad that you enjoyed your day. Thank you for sharing your experience. Sincerely, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.
Good trip with knowledgeable Kristin.
edward_c, Oct 2021
Great trip with Kristin as guide. She really was fantastic about giving us all information about areas both anecdotal and historical. She grew up in areas so great choice to guide. Only negative was several guests ignored the required masking policy and was never enforced. One person sat in the front row and never wore a mask as required yet was never told to do so. Either have a policy and enforce it or don’t.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you for taking the time to write this 5 star review of our Plymouth day trip. I am glad that you enjoyed your time with Kristin. We do require masks on board our buses as that is both the State and Federal requirement. We do make an announcement prior to each trip that masks must be worn. I am not sure at what point this passenger removed their mask as it sometimes can be difficult to enforce once our guide begins driving. Thank you for your feedback. Kind Regards, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.

scenic
JOHN_B, Oct 2021
tour guide, christie was fun and knowledgable, we were given ample time to view the different sites we visited. the only thing i would suggest would be letting prospective tourists wanting to take tours if you were making a breakfast stop or not. this tour made a stop at the 1st ever Dunkin Donuts, which was nice, but our martha's tour made a stop at a Mcdonalds....we could have gotten a extra hours sleep if we would have known these stops were going to be made....
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you for 5 star review of our Plymouth day trip. Our morning stop is meant to be more of a restroom break than a breakfast stop. We don't really advertise it because if we don't have time we don't stop. I appreciate your feedback and am happy that you enjoyed the day. Sincerely, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.

A rainy day in Plymouth.
Mike_K, Oct 2021
The day was cold and rainy but our guide was enthusiastic and was so much fun as she shared her knowledge of history with us as we made our way to Plymouth. I enjoyed seeing the birthplace of President Adams, so many beautiful old homes, the Mayflower II was informative and Plymouth Rock was beautifully showcased.

Hole in the wall Lunch.
Hunter_B, Sep 2021
Lots of sites and history. Many roads closed; Kristin did a great job navigating and adjusting the tour. She's awesome! Give her a bonus/raise; she's worth it.

The coast was beautiful...
Eileen_M, Sep 2021
The coast was beautiful and the history along the way was interesting. I would recommend this tour but I would have preferred going in reserve. Driving straight to Plymouth so we could see John Adams house on the way back. We were only able to view the gardens.

StevenB Boston Trip - Sept. 2021
Steven_B, Sep 2021
The driver was knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed the adventure and the historic aspect of the trip. I would highly recommend it to others. I didn't care for staying 2 hours at the mockup village area. Could have done it in 1 hour and then returned to hotel since its an 11 hour day but overall it was a good trip.

Great Trip to Plymouth
David_E, Aug 2021
Our family, parents and child, loved this bus trip! We enjoyed the narration as our tour guide and driver Kristin took us through quaint New England towns along the way. We were glad that we got to see and do so much with the various stops. We only wish we could have had time to explore more of Plymouth after seeing the Mayflower. The slow service at the lunch spot we chose took too much of the time. We highly recommend this trip.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
