Customers were given Autumn brochures and map while they hopped on to the bus tour. The brochure contains different Autumn leaves’ pictures for references. The driver was on time to pick and to return us to our respective hotel location. Driver was accommodating and gave us heads up on information about the history of Boston and a brief history of Massachusetts, such as: Boston known as the Bean town, seafood city, Boston Tea Party and The Pilgrims on the Mayfliwer that made its way to Plymouth Rock and what we would expect to see on our way to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Driver was respectful and friendly.

The tour was great. Matt was an excellent guide, full of information and he got us to some really beautiful places. I would suggest that this isn't a photography tour. You move to quickly from one place to the next to get a photography experience. Other wise the views were amazing and the stories interesting, the van was clean and comfortable.

It was a great time getting to explore all the wonderful colors of the fall! It was a great experience, probably took about 10 stops in total to grab a snack/ use the restroom, see many different spots to see the leaves, and grab some lunch. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the leaves and the areas we were moving through and had the day planned out perfectly! I would do this again every weekend to see the changing in the leaves if I could! I just moved to Boston, and didn’t know where to go to see the leaves, and this was a great way to get to know the area around me!
