    Okay until the end

    , Jun 2022
    I had read the reviews and agree that reversing the order so that you could actually go into the Adams houses would have been nice. Unfortunately for us, the sites are closed on Monday and Tuesday, and we were touring on Tuesday. We had more than enough time to tour the Mayflower and Plimouth. I thought it was all good until the end. Our bus driver Kristen decided to drop a group of women back at their hotel instead of their pick up spot as they were staying in an area that was not so great. As we were driving to the next hotel we went through an area where they were a lot of homeless people and she actually pointed out the person getting a shot in the neck and another with a needle hanging in his arm. Those are things I didn't need to see, nor did the child or teens on the bus need to see! Saying don't look just made everyone look. Shre shouldn't have said anything and we shouldn't have even been in that area of town. That was our final vision of the trip and ruined it for us.
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
    I apologize if you felt what you may have witnessed was unnecessary. Just to clarify, Kristin did not go out of her way to drop guests off out of the pickup area but happened to be driving by the guest's hotel while enroute to the actual drop off spot. That area of the city happens to be an area we have to drive through on occasion (she did not go out of the way to bring you by there). I am sure if you were staying at a hotel we were driving by you would want the same courtesy extended to you. You must remember Boston is a major City with issues the same as other major cities. Perhaps Kristin shouldn't have said "DON'T LOOK" but she didn't say LOOK. I'm sorry if that vision ruined your day but you shouldn't forget about how wonderful the first 10 hours were.

    Tour guide Kristen is exceptional, and, most importantly, she is considerate. She knows the region thoroughly to provide insights that're otherwise difficult gain in a day. Stop overs by the ocean at Cohasset and Scituate are terrific!

    I enjoyed the time at Plymouth and Patuxet. It would have been better if we would have been able to go into the church with the burial places of the Adam's. It didn't open until 10am. It seemed like a lot of the spots we passed by were just a waste of time. I also don't know why tour guides feel the need to let us know their political beliefs. I would have rather spent more time in Plymouth.

    Dave Phillips delivery of the historical stuff is on point and keeps on interested. I will say that almost 3 hours in plymouth wasn't for me. Perhaps make this a 12 hour trip all the way into Martha's vineyard and make plymouth a lunch stop. This could be done in 12 hours if the time at the museum was cut back alittle. Again, I really liked Dave

    A History-Lover's Dream!

    Our guide, Kristin, was delightful. Her sense of humor and all of the details she was able to share made the tour exceptional. If you are a history lover, you will really get your money's worth here. If you have ancestors who came over on the Mayflower, this tour provides a great overview of the area where they settled. Some highlights: * The John Alden house in Duxbury. We had several people on our tour whose ancestors founded that town in 1637. * Quincy, Massachusetts: the John Adams home (Peacefield) and Hancock Cemetery (named after Reverend John Hancock, father of John Hancock who signed the Declaration of Independence.) Also, the first Dunkin Donuts! We filled up on pumpkin donuts. * Filming location of "The Witches of Eastwick." * Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, Plimoth/Patuxet Museums, National Monument to the Forefathers. A shout out to "Tavern on the Wharf" for the best fish and chips I've ever had. This restaurant is a short walk from the Mayflower II. * And so much more. Beautiful architecture. lovely coastlines, lighthouses. I definitely want to come back and spend a lot more time in this area, but this tour gave us an excellent taste of what is there. We are so glad we signed up. Both I and my 17-year old had a great time. Thank you!

    Great trip with Kristin as guide. She really was fantastic about giving us all information about areas both anecdotal and historical. She grew up in areas so great choice to guide. Only negative was several guests ignored the required masking policy and was never enforced. One person sat in the front row and never wore a mask as required yet was never told to do so. Either have a policy and enforce it or don’t.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this 5 star review of our Plymouth day trip. I am glad that you enjoyed your time with Kristin. We do require masks on board our buses as that is both the State and Federal requirement. We do make an announcement prior to each trip that masks must be worn. I am not sure at what point this passenger removed their mask as it sometimes can be difficult to enforce once our guide begins driving. Thank you for your feedback. Kind Regards, Stephen M.

    tour guide, christie was fun and knowledgable, we were given ample time to view the different sites we visited. the only thing i would suggest would be letting prospective tourists wanting to take tours if you were making a breakfast stop or not. this tour made a stop at the 1st ever Dunkin Donuts, which was nice, but our martha's tour made a stop at a Mcdonalds....we could have gotten a extra hours sleep if we would have known these stops were going to be made....
