What people are saying about Massachusetts

Wow! What an amazing experience! Sully (our guide) was very knowledgeable and provided a wonderful tour of the city. Food, history, points of interest, and so much more. This tour is a MUST for anyone wanting to experience Boston in a short time. The food stops were all wonderful, but my favorite was Caffé Vittoria (the first Italian cafe in Boston) where we enjoyed a cappuccino and the BEST cannoli I’ve ever eaten. We enjoyed this stop so much, we went back twice after the tour! Sully provided many recommendations for restaurants, etc. throughout the tour, which we greatly appreciated. Knowing where the locals go to grab a lobster roll or clam chowder is just what we needed to know (Union Oyster House did not disappoint on either account). Tips: wear comfortable clothing, your best walking shoes, dress in layers (you will get warm from all the walking), make sure to wear sunscreen (don’t forget your neck), and be open to taking in the whole experience.

Dylan was an incredibly witty, knowledgeable and kind tour guide! He “made” the tour! Awesome! Will definitely book another tour.

Great tour. We landed this morning and just finished the 5 hour tour. Great sampling of food and history.

Sully was great, it felt like a friend with lots of insight showing us around.

Jim is a great tour guy . He is very knowledgeable and fun.
