What people are saying about Harvard Yard

Fabulous day !!!

Fabulous day in Boston. Excellent bus drivers, very pleasant journey despite the distance. Pause on the way there and back. Irene, our guide, was fascinating! Explanations along the way, very enriching, with a very very good command of the French language. Magnificent city. Delighted to have discovered it. We have seen the basics and will definitely be going back on a future trip.

Unfortunate trip, we found an accident on the outward and one on the return and we also punctured. the guide Brian Mongomery fantastic and tried to make us do everything with peace and sympathy.

A nice ballad
