Brian, the guide, was exceptional. He was passionate and let us enjoy every single minute of the trip. He made it worth it. Would definitely recommend. The driver, Socrates, drove safely and was very professional. The combo of the two made our trip to Boston unforgettable.

It's a worthwhile experience, highlights: -Great city, Boston -Funny, interesting live guide (we took ours in Spanish) The bad: -old bus, noisy at some times -no visit to MIT, just the view you can catch from the bus Overall I'd recommend it, it's very informative and the guides keep you interested throughout the (long!) day.

Perfekter Tag in Boston! Alles, von der Organisation, den Stopps bis zu den Ausflügen hat perfekt geklappt. Unsere Reiseführerin Jutta war super, sie hat ein riesiges Wissen über die Geschichte des Landes, der Kultur, den Einwohnern und die Stadt an sich. Weiters gab sie viele nützliche Informationen für den weiteren Aufenthalt in New York. Alles in allem ein unvergesslicher Ausflug!
