Boston in a Day

Tour guide Stew was very engaging and had lots of information and stories about Boston and surrounding area. Based on our pick up time he took us directly to the bay cruise which was very informative and enjoyable. After that we took a tour of the USS Constitution and then walked around Harvard. After we dropped off the second couple Stew asked us where we wanted to go. We dropped by Cheers then wrapped up at the North end where we were dropped off and had an excellent dinner at Catch of the Day. Bunker Hill was also offered but we chose Cheers.

Great tour of Boston historical sights. Our driver/guide, Bob, was a hoot and told us all sorts of nuggets about Boston - old & new. The tour says 3 hours but that’s the city only, then there’s a nice, hour-long bay cruise at the end. Bob communicated well for pickup, too. We felt we got our $ worth on this tour!

It never happened. Waited over an hour for the driver. When I called they said he was on his way but delayed but then they lost contact with him.

The boat ride is excellent. The car part is very bad: slow, late, lacking information et filled with impertinent anecdotes from the life of the driver…

My mom took my sister and I on cruise and it ended in Boston. We weren’t sure where to go or what to do so we booked this tour. Bob was amazing, very knowledgeable of Boston and it’s history, also very funny. He went out of his way, after the tour, to take us to Urgent Care, and drop us off, my mom had tripped. I would strongly recommend this tour and Bob the tour guide to anyone visiting Boston.

Stewie was a wonderful guide. He went out of his way to bring us to locations that we would’ve never thought of as a tourist. He was humorous, well-versed in the history of Boston that was fascinating. Highly recommend

Bob was a fabulous tour guide! He was thoughtful, informative and humorous. The whole experience was great! If I had to choose one thing, it would be the boat ride in the Harbor.

I ended up being the only one in a tour group that day. I felt a little awkward, just because I have never been on a private tour. However, Stuart did a great job with the tour! He knew a lot about Boston and gave me some local tips. Super informative! The van was nice and would comfortably fit about 5-7 people, possibly. Definitely recommend this tour!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with the excellent tour guide, Bob. He is extremely knowledgeable and very personable as well. He took us to all of the sites as advertised and then some. The fact that our group was very small made it all the more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour and I would highly recommend Bob as your tour guide for the future.

My wife and I had a wonderful time doing the Best of Boston tour. Our guide was so funny and knowledgeable at the same time was a bonus. It finally culminated with us enjoying chocolate chip cookies with milk before our trip ended. Kudos to Stuart of NH!

Worst tour ever!!!

Had a terrible time . It was pouring rain and our tour guide was late . We were soaked by the time he finally picked us up and we were dropping off people from the previous tour so we were really late getting our tour started we ran late entire tour. We were speeding thru tour we didn’t even slow down enough to see anything we were so running late and did not get to board the us constitution and we hurried to boat cruise and miss cruise. This tour was not even worth $10. I want my money back . I have been in several tours and this was the worst by far. The tour guide was nice but I spent almost $300 for nothing. I am so disappointed and so were the other passengers . They were all picked up late and are also going to request their money back!

guide had no idea about most stuff - stewy was very pleasant, but seemed more inclined to recount irrelevant story from his past
