Day 1 Boston City Tour

Today we will be picked up in Quincy and Boston in the morning. Our tour will begin in Cambridge, MA, where we will take a Harvard University in-depth tour. Then we will visit MIT. After that, we will head to Boston, where we will see the Skywalk Observation Deck at Prudential Center, Massachusetts State House, Trinity Church and New England Aquarium.

In the late afternoon, we will return passengers to the pickup points. See "Departure and Return Details" for more information.

Boston is a city as beautiful as it is historically significant. Visitors can walk the Freedom Trail and see where the seeds of the American Revolution were sown or visit the North End and look out over the harbor.

This was a great way to see some of Boston's highlights without having to maneuver in traffic yourself. Dan was very knowledgeable and shared historical information that we previously did not know. It was a relaxing tour and we learned something at the same time. We enjoy the tours offered by this company and we are looking forward to going on more. It's a wonderful way to see the sites in New England!

Bo had a good attitude in knowing how to explain everything. He did everything well, and the driver drove carefully to our destination. Visiting Boston is such a historic places to tour. My child was fascinated going to Harvard and MIT. Hopefully one day he will attend school there.

The tour guide demonstrated professional attitude toward the group. I think our group was considered high maintenance and picky. With the patience from our tour guide, I would not even be able to handle my own group.
