Fabulous day !!!

Fabulous day in Boston. Excellent bus drivers, very pleasant journey despite the distance. Pause on the way there and back. Irene, our guide, was fascinating! Explanations along the way, very enriching, with a very very good command of the French language. Magnificent city. Delighted to have discovered it. We have seen the basics and will definitely be going back on a future trip.

Top guide, clocked a bit closely

The Guide Jonathan is really recommended. It is entertaining, tells a lot of details and you understand it wonderfully. The only thing that I think could have been a bit better would be the timing. I would have liked to have had a little more time in the individual stops to be able to take reasonable photos. Everything else great!
