A nice weekend trip! Our tour guide Warren was very knowledgeable and patient. We enjoyed every stop!
I recommend this tour.
It was very well managed to make sure we are covering all the things.
The accommodation too was very good one

I took this tour on Sept 3rd and 4th,2016. Our tour guide was Yuki.
She was friendly and very good in her job. We started from New York on time in early morning. In spite of being struck in traffic jam in NY for good amount of time (probably due to long weekend) we managed to cover all the attractions and return on time, due to her meticulously planned itinerary. We stayed for one night in Holiday Inn that was also very good.
This only bad thing about the tour was I boarded the shuttle from Edison to NY. While returning we came back in evening by 6:30 pm in NY. And I need to wait for another 1 hour at the stop to catch shuttle bus from NY to Edison.
We had the pleasure of taking this trip with Cora Chen as our tour guide. She was awesome! The trip was simply fantastic with the various stops well spaced and ample time provided to go enjoy the sights.
Loved every minute of the tour! The hotel was great with the complimentary breakfast. The guide was caring and informative. Worth every penny, though we opted out of the lobster dinner, just had a walk around instead and ate somewhere else.
Wonderful trip, very good service & organized. I have used this service before- two times, planning to do in future too. They covered all the places as mentioned in the packages. Kids enjoyed the aquarium, and we all liked Breakers Mansion so much. It's too good and a must visit. Hotel was pretty decent and a good one.
Hi all. Boston Trip, 2 days. Our pick up point was Edison, NJ 6:30AM, but bus came 1 hour late.
The hotel accommodation was excellent. In bus, restroom was not working. Apart from us 3 rows was not able to see outside because bus glass was having problem. Guide was excellent.
Not able to see Quincy Market because allocated time was a lot less. Drop off facility to Edison, NJ was very excellent. Nice Trip.
This 2 day Boston and Rhode island trip was pretty good. All locations as mentioned in the itinerary were covered. Hotel stay was nice. Breakers Mansion was nice. We had a good time in the Quincy Market with a lot of shops and restaurants. The lobster dinner was good but a bit expensive. Overall pretty satisfied and would recommend this tour.
Trip was overall okay. Attractions promised were covered. There were a few disappointments such as the Boston Harbor Cruise having audio guide but it was in Chinese. So we were clueless what was being told about the historical facts of Boston. Coming to the attraction, our guide, Ricky, could have handled the time allotment for each of the venues. Breakers Mansion should have been given at least 1 1/2 hours, but we had to rush within 45 minutes, which I feel was not enough at all. We also reached MIT only in late night, so we just had to visit it from outside for namesake. Overall the trip was okay, highlight of the trip was the stay in Hilton :) It was awesome!
A memorable day in my life. Mystic Aquarium and Boston Harbor Cruise were my best. The tour guide Jasmine was lovely, caring and knowledgeable. My fellow tourists were wonderful as well as the driver. I will go back there sometime. Amazing!
down sides: if you plan on seeing Boston deeply, this is not a tour for you. we only spent 1 hour on Saturday evening (while people were having the lobster dinner) and then 1 hour on Sunday morning.
Yale, Harvard and MIT Universities are very interesting.
The aquarium is frankly not worth it unless you have a kid travelling with you.
The breaker's mansion is lovely, we didn't spend enough time in there though..
Overall good tour, and price.
Lot places to visit in 2 days time. Tour operator should know the issue in Seat allotment. I have to seat in back side and my family was in front side for 2 hour. Also tour guide was explaining major things in chineese. he should also explain in english. but overall good experience.
We had a wonderful trip. Our Tour guide was Sadrina she was very informative about all the area towns, cities and monuements we even drove by. The sites in Boston were very nice. Would not recommend spending money on Lobster Diner we didn't not a nice restaurant. Hotel was nice and clean. Bus was clean but a bit old. Driver was courteous and got us to all sites on time. Overall very satisfied. Please note that the listed optional tickets are your option to buy. Some people on our tour were shocked to be asked for to pay for the entry fees for sites. Make sure you take out cash prior to going on your trip. Quincy market had Harvard shirts for much better price. this was second trip will definitely take another one soon.
My family and I cannot stop talking about the fun we had on this two-day tour. Our tour guide, Da( I hope I have the name spelled correctly), could not have been more friendly and professional. He conducted the tour in both Chinese and English, expertly and flawlessly. Both he and our driver were uncommonly kind and considerate. Da even surprised our six-year old granddaughter with a magnificent lobster, boxed as a present, for her upcoming birthday. She was overjoyed at this experience and will never forget it. We absolutely loved the dinner in Boston. In fact, we treasure the wonderful people we met on this tour. We experienced so much in just a couple of days that is all so difficult to put into words how much fun this tour was. We would not hesitate to take this tour again, and perhaps elect this time to fly back to San Antonio from Boston, instead of returning back to New York. You will not be disappointed if you join this tour.
This tour was the best. Our tour guide, a young man named Jaeson was excellent. He was very intelligent in explaining every details. He is also very nice to passengers. Foods are good, accommodation was excellent. Thanks again Jaeson...
We had expected a more from this trip given the general good reviews.however, we found it was way less on susbstance compared to the money we spent.we got to spend less than half a day looking around boston. Trinity church was done in a huff and only 2hrs spent at quincy market. Luckily we didnt have the lobster dinner that is chinese style. it costed 30$ per head. instead we had dinner at a chinese restaurant nearby whr 2 of us dined for $30 in all.The tkt price of breaker's mansion is 21$ per head and they let us spend less than an hr thr. Our prime attraction for this trip was boston and we didnt get. 2 spend more time thr. I think they can have a trip dedicated to boston only whr the prime attraction of boston can be well covered. The hotel that we stayed in was ok. Thr was a dearth of water bottles in the vending machines. The towels were not too clean. The bus was super comfortable.
We booked the tour at the last moment and we reached the bus a little late due to train delays. The tour guide was very nice, warm and friendly. She made the tour interesting giving us information on various points of interest. The only disappointment with the tour was the lobster. There was much hype to it but we did not like the taste. Hotel accomodation was very good for one night stay. It was raining in Boston so the boat cruise was cancelled. We were refunded promptly and we got extra time in Quincy Market. We reached back by 7:00pm at Bowery St. Overall I would definitely recommend this tour.
The tour started a little late due to late comers but that was not a problem. I found that Yale and Harvard were similar from outside and a visit to one of them would have been sufficient. The Braker Mansion was really good. The Aquarium was a bit a disappointment. So was the Boston Harbour sailing. It would have been better to let us explore Boston for 3 to 4 hours on our own. I thnk the Lobster dinner was a real rip off; there were lobster dinners for half the price in Boston. The guide's English was not all that clear and she spoke Chinese better than English. Altogether a good tour but there is room for improvement. May be there is room for improvement.
It was a fantastic tour altogether. Though started a bit late as we had to wait quite some time in Edison, when it started it was a flyer. Tour Guide Winne was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed calm and quite tiny Rhode Island on Day1. Perhaps little more time in Braker Mansion would have been better. We could enjoy some time in the beach of Atlantic then. The hotel was good and complementary breakfast was better. Day2 was Boston which started with Havard, MIT, Cruise and Queens Market.
Like every good thing, the couple days passed very quickly was full enjoyment and entertainment.
This was my third tour with Go To Bus and in commensurate with previous two (Niagara and DC), the experiece with Boston was pleasant and memorable.
Looking for a Acadia National Park Tour on last weekend of September, if we get pick up and drop from Edison.
Tour is good and really economical, I did many tours with gotobus and am planning to take more tours. My observation is quality of hotels is going down as compared to tours I did last year. I observed a good change is that now tour guide is aware that there are some vegeterian people are on the bus and help us find the vegeterian food but I feel this should improve further since more and more people from other countries are joining the tour bus should stop at places where there are multiple choice of food like subway, burger king etc.
I feel a little uncomfortable in the bus because the curtains were missing from my window and it was very sunny that day. But the rest of the bus trip wasn't that bad.
I like all the additional site-seeing places. I don't really mind paying more for such beautiful places and amazing experience on the big boat, but I don't get why we have to pay the full price for them, not the group price. Because we even get that 'blue stamp' on our hand which is a signature that we came with a group, but we were charged 29 dollars instead of 18. I was very disappoint for that.
Well, the hotel was very nice. We love Fiona, our tour guide a lot. She was very funny and helpful and makes our tour a very enjoyable one. Thanks a lot!
Had a wonderful time. Would of liked more time in Quincy Market. We were not aware that it was a bilingual trip. The harbor cruise was in Chinese, therefor did not understand the sites. The hotel was excellent, very clean.
