It was okay. The tour guide needs more training on professionalism.

We booked this tour on July 13th to July 14th. The tour guy name Alfred was very impolite and unprofessonal with us. Doing service and as a tour guy, he should not have this kind of behavior with customers. We've booked many tours on this site before and all ended with great experiences. Sorry that I have to write this review but beware.

Hello, We are very happy to go to Boston and very nice service. Unlike another company that drove us to Niagara Fals, it looked completely different now. We recommend ordering tours on the TakeTours website. Greetings from tourists from Poland

MLK weekend to Boston. Despite the weather my kids and i had a wonder time. Our tour guide Jessica was awesome she made it easy for us to manage the weather and give us enough time. She had such a wonderful personality her English was also excellent and did not leave us English speaking guest out. The roads was really bad because of the snow, compliments also to our driver that trip he was amazing making sure our safety was first. This is my 6th Tour so i know from experience how different each tour can be. so thank you to Jessica and our driver for making our Boston experience memorable. I''l be sure to book my next trip soon.

Itinerary was very good for 2 days tour and affordable.Our tour guide, Kim, was organized and kind. this was Chinese/ English guide and majority our tourists was Chinese. most attractions were well selected. The Breakers Mansion was beautiful and ocean view was fantastic. Boston duck tour was new experience as it was for both, land and water. Quincy market lobster meal was delicious. Hotel was clean. Harvard tour was educational, Yale tour guide was not organized and kept forgetting to explaining in English. Overall , the tour was great and recommend this to a friend.

Overall, it was a pleasant weekend trip. Getting on the shuttle from Flushing was a bit disorganized and chaotic. I got to flushing at 6:20, and the shuttle bus came at around 6:50. A lot of waiting around for the actual tour bus to get to Chinatown as well. Check-in time was 7:40 and then the bus arrived at around 8:10. My original seat was the last row on the bus and the window was covered with white residue, and water filled the inside of the window halfway. There was also a mushroom growing on the crack of the bathroom door. Fortunately, there were empty seats so I was able to switch to a window seat in the middle of the bus. There are USB ports overhead to charge your phone, but mine weren't working. Thankfully, I had my portable charger. No WIFI, I believe. After getting settled into the bus, the trip turned out to be more organized. You are not allowed to use the bathroom on the bus, but we made plenty of rest stops along the way for bathroom/food. You pay up front for the optional excursions you'd like to participate in, in addition to a mandatory $20 service gratuity for the driver/guide - this is standard for any tour you go on. The total came out to be $165 for me. The Museum of Science was not offered. I participated in every optional excursion, except the lobster meal. I went to Quincy Market instead and got a nice plate of raw shellfish, a lobster bisque and a glass of wine for about $33+tip. I also purchased an arancini in case I got hungry at the hotel, as well as a cheese danish to eat for breakfast. The hotel was not bad. My room had a microwave, fridge, iron, hair dryer, standard toiletries. I preferred the activities on the first day - the Breakers Mansion, NE Aquarium, Duck Tour. I would've liked a bit more time to spend at the mansion/aquarium, an hour just didn't feel like enough. The second day comprised of the university tours, which I wasn't very interested in to begin with but also didn't think it was worth the $10+ dollars. The Boston Harbor cruise was nice. Bus can get cold so bring a sweater/jacket on with you. Drop off at Flushing is a different location than pickup, so plan ahead for that. Drop off time was a little before 5:30. Eric was a great tour guide, very accessible through text or in person for questions.
