Had a fantastic day. David was an excellent guide (and driver!) throughout, very easy to listen to, very personable and so passionate about the history and the city. The transportation is impeccable and very comfortable, with water and snacks provided. There is a lot to see and the trip is well paced, thoughtfully planned and I would highly recommend it.

The provided snacks and water as well as the driver’s suttle humor created a casual yet friendly atmosphere. We saw a variety of New England houses and gained a better understanding of early life in Massachusetts. The icing on the cake was spending time on the Mayflower, seeing Plymouth Rock, and listening to the Plymouth citizens share what their day-to-day responsibilities are while creating a life in America.

Our guide was Kristin. The weather was awful but she made a great effort to arrange the day around the weather . We saw the pilgrim’s village before the rain and everything else between showers. She was very informative and knowledgeable. A very interesting day out , learned a lot of American history and saw lots of beautiful New England. Thanks Kristen
