    Had an amazing tour of Salem on Monday. The tour was consisted of several different locations within Salem. All the guides involved were well prepared and provided interesting information. Our main guide Matt did a great job providing interesting information about both Boston and Salem on the ride.

    Taking this trip is one of the best things I have ever done. I recommend this to everybody. The New England excursions team organized this so well. The whole trip, from pick-up to drop-off, was very smooth. Matthew picked us up from from our hotels and provided us excellent commentary (and hilarious jokes!) and recommendations while driving us to Woods Hole. The ferry ride was incredible. Once we arrived in Oak Bluffs, Greg did a marvellous job at drving us around MV and explaining the history in a very entertaining way. It was so compelling. I highly recommend opting into the island tour option!

    All in all, wonderful experience. I wish I could give it 10 stars instead of 5.

    Lucia was a wonderful tour guide. She provided such entertaining and helpful commentary. New Hampton, York and Kennebunkport are such gorgeous places.

    In Kennebunkport, we took a trolley tour around town, driven by our brilliant guide, Ken. He compellingly explained the history of the town and cracked hilarious jokes. It was informative and entertaining.

    As a first trip to Maine from Boston, I highly recommend this.

    Leaving from Boston with a few surprises on the way. I won’t tell you the surpises but have your camera ready. We were dropped off at the cliff walk and walked to the Breakers for our tour. You can go through at your own pace and get about an hour here which was plenty to go through the house and go out to the yard. Next stop was downtown Newport for shopping and lunch. There are many restaurants to choose from. We went to the wharf area. After lunch we visited the Marble house for about an hour. Both mansions were owned by the vanderbilts. Mansions were stunning and we felt we had enough time to see them. Our guide, Coach was great and drove us past the other mansions and gave us some interesting history and stories from the area. This trip is definitely worth taking.

    We booked a 24 stop tour thar was canceled two days before the tour. We had to settle for an 8 stop tour that was about the same price. The people on one bus were bored and one guy actually fell asleep. The recorded narration was poor. We did have a live person narrating on one bus and since we were the only people on the bus, she sat with us. She was very good and provided a lot of information. Disappointed that we were not able to take the 24 stop but with campus unrest, we were told roads were closed to the busses. Probably wouldn't recommen
    d to others.

    Our tour guide provided a great Boston overview. The car was comfortable and our guide was very knowledgeable. We got to customize the tour to the places we wanted to highlight, stop and spend more time at certain places.

    This gets a 5 because of Coach, who did an outstanding job of making this a fun, engaging, and active experience. I think Lexington and Concord actually dealt him a very bad hand, as none of the historic homes were open or appeared to be staffed. Despite the fact that we really couldn’t go into any of the indoor sites, he managed to give a rich sense of the historical significance of the sites and a vivid portrayal of the battles, the principal figures involved, and their historical context.

    I think people booking this experience really need to consider that you will mostly be outside looking at a monument or an exterior of a house, or in the van, for virtually the entire tour except for rest stops and lunch. If you know that in advance, that will help avoid any frustration with the tour.

    We enjoyed ourselves throughly on this tour! Our guide was super knowledgeable about the area and added a touch of something to the experience that you could not have gotten from a typical tour. Stewie was an amazing guide and I would recommend him to anyone. We were thrilled with the amount of Boston that we got to see and more thrilled with the amount of knowledge we walked away with!

    We took the Hop On Hop Off Trolley and are so glad we did. The streets in Boston are horrendous. I would never want to drive these Boston streets. The drivers were all very friendly and helpful.

    Maria was amazing. So full of knowledge regarding the history and present information of Boston. Would recommend doing at the beginning of your trip - to see what sights you shouldn’t miss. Highly recommend!

    Martin brought the city to life for us during our driving tour through Cambridge and Boston. Over our 6 hour tour, he brought us to an amazing lunch spot with a front row view of historic Fenway Park, gave us great color on Harvard campus landmarks, and fascinating stories behind Revolutionary War monuments. Along the way, his quips, rapport, and Irish brogue kept us engaged throughout the day. Highly recommend taking a tour with Martin!
