Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    If you are fortunate enough to be on Crafty’s tour, DO NOT get off of his trolley! He is so very entertaining. Loved his tour!

    This was a brilliant day out - I would thoroughly recommend it as a great way to see Martha's Vineyard in a whirlwind tour. Our driver, Bart, picked me up promptly with the rest of the group and gave us some great commentary on our drive to the ferry. We were then given clear instructions on how to find our Island tour guide, Tom, who - as a native - was just bursting with endless facts and history. The bus is a really fun way to see a lot of the island in a short space of time. The ferry ride back was very smooth and so was the return trip to Boston - all in all, a fantastic day with such beautiful scenery.

    The Boston Whale Watching Cruise was so much fun! I love being out on the water, so the 1.5 hour boat ride out to the feeding grounds was nearly as enjoyable as the approx. 1 hour we spent whale watching before heading back to the harbor. I went in early June 2024, and we saw 3 adults and a calf! All of them were very active, feeding on the fish in the area. The calf was very entertaining, like it knew it had an audience and needed to show off. The cruise crew were friendly and very informative; they provided a ton of interesting information about the harbor on our way out to sea, and about the feeding area and the whales themselves. This was my second whale watching cruise in Boston and both times were a blast and just a great way to spend half a day. I highly recommend this excursion, especially if you like the water and marine life!

    The view of the city from being out on the water was amazing and worth it. The tour guide gave us so many details about what we were seeing. He was pretty funny too. He picked the most gorgeous days for our experience.

    Did the 3:30pm tour with wife and daughter leaving from Prudential Center. Our guide was “Bjorn” who wore a Viking helmet and talked about his Scandinavian heritage. He was very funny and personable and very knowledgeable about the City. We started on Boyleston Street before heading towards the Charles River. Felt very safe and precautions were explained and emphasized. So much fun going from land to water and being on the Charles and then back onto the City after about 25 minutes on the River. Explored all the different neighborhoods and learned incredible history about specific locations in the North End about the most famous people and locations from the American Revolution- really brought history to life! Well worth the money - two hours in total. Open windows and covered so shady with plenty of breeze. Highly recommend!!!

    Oh my goodness. We loved this tour. We felt like we were a part of something special. Having done the tour, we enjoyed the game even more! We wished the tour was a little longer and could stay in the museum longer and sit on the green monster longer!

    Two families touring the historical sights on the East coast, 5 kids ages 7-13. 3 days in DC, Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, NY, Plymouth and Boston. Mike’s tour brought two weeks of learning together for us and connected all the dots. An amazing, insightful, fun presentation that catered primarily to the adults but left us with the ability to pass along to the kids. Although my head hurt due to the mind blowing amount of information I could not recommend it more highly. Thank you Mike!

    We had a great tour with Malachi last night. The stories were great and everything was interactive. Malachai had lots of interesting information and insight into the city’s history. We loved getting to go into the burying grounds after hours. We appreciated that Malachai made sure all the tour goers were respectful of the burying ground inhabitants. Would definitely recommend to others!

    The Boston Tea Party attraction was such a pleasant surprise. It was much more enjoyable than expected, very informative, and the crew did a fantastic job. The entire experience is very well orchestrated and curated.

    This trip is well worth the expense. Matt was a great guide and makes the day so Non stressful. Great communication, picks you up on time at your hotel. Roomy van that you can enjoy the ride in, he even had snacks! He tells you a bit about anything you want to know, tours, restaurants, events. He even gives you a history quiz! Matt does everything, from handling your tickets, escorting you to the tour locations and keeping you on schedule. When you add it up you would spend about the same amount doing it on your own. Definitely book this tour and enjoy a full day of Matt taking care of things!!! Salem was a must see, an absolute highlight of the Boston Trip, you can break for lunch, I recommend Turners Seafood. At Turners you may want to share a plate, they are rather large servings for lunch. The Seven Gables House is a must. At the end of the day he takes you to the oldest chocolate store, try the turtles! Matt knows everyone in Salem, your in good hands with him.

    What a fun and tasty time! Our guide, “G,” was so enthusiastic and caring. She was good at engaging with everyone in the small group which made for a very personal experience. We shared an incredible cannoli experience in the rain which was funny, yummy, wet, and will NEVER be forgotten! Thank you!

    Great experience! To see the city from the water is a must! Hour and a half boat ride with the views of the city, we also have seen the Constitution ship firing its cannon!
