Kitty Huang was our tour guide in our 2-day trip this past Labor day weekend. She was very informative, funny and helpful. She even created a video trip and shared with the group! I would like to have Kitty be our tour guide again next time I book. Juan

This trip was super fun. Kitty is an amazing tour guide, she put her heart into making sure our trip was safe, fun and just perfect. The itinerary was very relaxing allowing to enjoy all venues.

It was great and relaxing trip. Essex train tour was awesome. Breakers mansion was not that good. Martha's Vineyard was good but instead of giving 2 hours free after the bus tour we should be given some time in every town to take pictures and enjoy. We were safely dropped back to Manhattan. Tour guide Trista was great ,she managed the trip very well and she was very cooperative

Wonderful and memorable trip made possible by excellent service given by Remi Chen and driver Roosevelt. Remi was very helpful and always with a ready smile. Loved the smooth driving of Roosevelt. Always properly dressed. Every driver should emulate him. Both are great assets to take tours. Will recommend and travel again with take tours because of them.

Went on the May 25, 2019 tour with Trista as our Tour Guide. The trip was well organized and Trista and the driver kept us on schedule! We were able to do all the tours on time and returned safely back to NY. The tours were unique and fascinating! Who knew about the Essex Steam Train and Riverboat? We loved every moment of this trip, so much so, that I would do it again.

I recommend this tour!
