Amazing day trip to Boston from New York. Our tour guide Millie was very knowledgeable and experienced and we managed to get the best of Boston (Copley Square, Beacon Hill, the Freedom Trail, Quincy Market and Harvard) despite the rainy day. Highly recommended!

The trip was amazing! Really well planned and the tour guide was really good and knowledgeable. We saw the main places and, I need to confess, Boston is incredible. The city was European influence and is very charming. It’s good to be away from the big apple and be able to enjoy a calmer city. I highly recommend this your! 5⭐️

We were only six in the group but we had fun in Boston. We visited Copley Square, Harvard University, Freedom Walk, and Quincy Market as our last stop. I also learned a lot about Boston and how it served as an important place for the United States and its history. We were given free neck pillows and watched a movie on our way back home.
