The trip itself was very good, very recommandable! Although a heads up: there are problems to the pick up as they only pick up from specific hotels not stated. So to be on fhe safe side I would recommend to go to their office to get onto the bus. Otherwise it was good. Tony, the driver/guide, was very nice and funny.

The trip was excellent but the organization was lacking. I had asked for hotel pick-up and it was on my paperwork. But it was unclear that that was going to happen by the local contractor. When I arrived in Boston, two days prior to the excursion I attempted to contact the local tour provider so I could plan accordingly. I called on Saturday and left a message, I called on Sunday and left a message. Called on Monday and finally got a person who finally said that hotel pick-up was not available for our hotel. We finally arrived at their location and once checked in we were told to go outside and stand in line until our tour was called. This was very disorganized and there was no one giving any direction. It ended up that our trip was combined with a full day trip on same bus. Great trip with a knowledgeable, but quirky guide, he was very good guide/bus driver. Was a little disappointed that on the three stops he didn’t come with us and give more commentary.
