    Very accommodating staff to we three who were older than probably everyone else on the boat,and a bit slow in our walking. Too many children got bored after about an hour,and their indoors noise-making made it difficult to hear the narrator. I was delighted to see all the changes surrounding the harbor since the last time I had taken a similar trip. Thanks for braving the elements to give such a great tour.

    It was a very informational and fun cruise. The guide was knowledgeable and did a great job. I've live 90 minutes from Boston most of my life and have been there countless times but I learned things that I never knew. Great way to spend an hour and a half in Boston

    This was a very good thing to do to get some history of Boston from a sit down tour. The narrator was easily heard, made funny jokes, and told us about the landmarks we passed. The Captain made sure we had a pleasant non-bumpy ride on a very windy cold day. I learned things I wouldn't have known otherwise in a short period of time.
