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.

    Fantastic trip to Salem today. Matthew, our guide was on time picking us up from our hotel. He gave lots of information about Boston on the journey to pick everyone else up and on the short drive to Salem. He organised all the tickets to the museums which made the trip very relaxing. I especially enjoyed the House of Seven Gables. The trip was nicely paced with time at the museums and free time to grab lunch and have a look around the shops. If you’re unsure whether to do this tour, I would definitely recommend, you won’t regret it!

    The quintessential finale of our New England trip is here in Newport, Rhode Island, and the opulent mansions of the Vanderbilts! From the beauty of the sea, The Cliff Walk, The Breakers, and The Marble House, these breathtaking moments will be forever remembered! Our tour guide was "Coach" who made the trip informative, entertaining, and accommodating for everyone.

    What an amazing trip around Boston. Stewie made it fun and customized the trip to our likes. He was a wealth of knowledge and was able to navigate Boston traffic like a pro. We are thankful that we decided to do it and if we ever come back we may do it again on a different landmarks. Thank you Stewie!

    Martin brought the city to life for us during our driving tour through Cambridge and Boston. Over our 6 hour tour, he brought us to an amazing lunch spot with a front row view of historic Fenway Park, gave us great color on Harvard campus landmarks, and fascinating stories behind Revolutionary War monuments. Along the way, his quips, rapport, and Irish brogue kept us engaged throughout the day. Highly recommend taking a tour with Martin!

    This was our favorite part of our trip. Peter was a great guide and really brought history to life for our kids. It gave us a great overview of the city and surrounding area. We were able to see and learn about so much in the 1 day that we never could have done on our own. I'd highly recommend this to anyone and would recommend doing it on your first day in Boston. We had kids ranging in age from 10-14 and they all agreed it was their favorite thing we did in Boston! Thanks Peter!

    Our guide Jason was great! He was waiting for us with a sign, when we exited the ferry in Salem. He kept the tour fun and was very knowledgeable! There was a total of 12 people taking the tour. It was nice not having to worry about parking, by taking the ferry. Highly recommend! (The only issue those of us on this tour had, was when we tried to board the ferry at our return time. Our tickets wouldn't scan, so we had to go over to the building and the ferry personnel gave us comp tickets, to board)
