Customers were given Autumn brochures and map while they hopped on to the bus tour. The brochure contains different Autumn leaves’ pictures for references. The driver was on time to pick and to return us to our respective hotel location. Driver was accommodating and gave us heads up on information about the history of Boston and a brief history of Massachusetts, such as: Boston known as the Bean town, seafood city, Boston Tea Party and The Pilgrims on the Mayfliwer that made its way to Plymouth Rock and what we would expect to see on our way to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Driver was respectful and friendly.

Matthew was a wonderful guide. Answered everyone’s questions and was very knowledgeable about the area etc. Enjoyed the frequent breaks, comfortable transportation and the cider donut stop! Would book with him again for his other tours.

Our guide was amazing. Very informative about the area and the scenery was beautiful. Gave us just the right amount of time for lunch and shopping. Van was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this excursion.

Great day trip from Boston to see the beautiful fall foliage.

Informative and fun fall tour - we highly recommend
