Kristen was an excellent tour guide. The route out & returning with points of interest narrated. Trail of Quincy: birthplaces of former U.S. Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams, listened to a historian about burial ground, town hall & church. Nice beach stop for rockhounds. Situate Lighthouse. Eat at the Yellow Deli in Plymouth. Plimoth Patuxet Museum: people dressed in character village depicting Pilgrim life and Mayflower Il: replica of original ship. Plymouth Rock. Great trip. Highly recommend. New England tours should post maps of these places or Google - way more than we expected. Enjoyable journey through history. Kristen told all about the area and beyond.

Kristin was our guide and she was fantastic! We saw lots of interesting things in and around Quincey, with historic info from Kristin, then headed to Mayflower II. This was interesting, though a short part of the day. Next we went to Patuxet, which we loved! It's very well done, guides/historians were very knowledgeable and more than happy to answer questions. All in all, a fascinating day in a very historic part of the country. Kirstin provided us with great information, fun stories, some snacks, and her winning and very fun personality. I highly recommend this tour!!
