So educational yet so wonderfully fun! Excellent!!!

What a wonderful experience! First I was running a little late after taking the subway and walking to the bus. Someone from the tour called me to see if I was still coming and directed me so I was able to arrive in a timely manner and find my way. Thank you for that!!! Our guide Sam was so knowledgeable and fun to listen to. He is a very amazing man and I am grateful to have experienced this tour with him as guide. I was very taken with the beauty of the area. I love the Alcott House tour and the Lexington and Concord area. I love history and Sam filled in all the blanks and then some! If you are looking for a tour of Boston and the surrounding area this is the best one to do. Sam makes you want it to never end and to come back soon and when you do say "hi" to Sam for me!!

Harvard tour was excellent, MIT waste of time

Just do the Harvard one. Ismail was an amazing guide despite his young age, it was clear he enjoyed giving the tour to us, his jokes were great and he had some interesting information. Perfect blend of professionalism and fun. Only thing was that it was difficult to find as we apparently took wrong exit out of the metro and there were no real directions given. It's in front of the Harvard Cafe at the intersection for anyone else having the same issue. Really nothing great about the MIT tour, I would not go again.

It was truly the way to go. Was able to buy upfront with no hassles!

It was an action packed vacation, to say the least. We truly enjoyed Boston and the history! The Whale watching was magnificent, but other tourists would about knock you down to see. So be prepared for that especially if you have small children, even they are not safe on the sunset cruise. With so much to do, it is hard to pack it all in and we had the 5 day pass. We got to about half of the events listed and a few that weren't..

Our tour guide in Harvard was the best!!!

The money we paid was so worth it because we loved the tours, specially the Harvard tour. Everything they told us was very interesting and fascinating; we loved the buildings, the statues, the stories, the gift shop...everything!!! We want to give a shoutout to our tour guide (Josh or Ross, we don’t quietly remember) because he was the best!! He explained everything so good and with so much passion!

Dan was an excellent presenter and added humour in his presentation

Dan was an excellent presenter and he knew the history of the areas of Cambridge, Lexington, Concord and much more. He added humour in his presentation at different points. It was a very cool day and it went quickly with Dan's presentation and his informative comments on the way. Well worth the trip.
