    We booked this tour on July 13th to July 14th. The tour guy name Alfred was very impolite and unprofessonal with us. Doing service and as a tour guy, he should not have this kind of behavior with customers. We've booked many tours on this site before and all ended with great experiences. Sorry that I have to write this review but beware.

    Hello, We are very happy to go to Boston and very nice service. Unlike another company that drove us to Niagara Fals, it looked completely different now. We recommend ordering tours on the TakeTours website. Greetings from tourists from Poland

    MLK weekend to Boston. Despite the weather my kids and i had a wonder time. Our tour guide Jessica was awesome she made it easy for us to manage the weather and give us enough time. She had such a wonderful personality her English was also excellent and did not leave us English speaking guest out. The roads was really bad because of the snow, compliments also to our driver that trip he was amazing making sure our safety was first. This is my 6th Tour so i know from experience how different each tour can be. so thank you to Jessica and our driver for making our Boston experience memorable. I''l be sure to book my next trip soon.

    Itinerary was very good for 2 days tour and affordable.Our tour guide, Kim, was organized and kind. this was Chinese/ English guide and majority our tourists was Chinese. most attractions were well selected. The Breakers Mansion was beautiful and ocean view was fantastic. Boston duck tour was new experience as it was for both, land and water. Quincy market lobster meal was delicious. Hotel was clean. Harvard tour was educational, Yale tour guide was not organized and kept forgetting to explaining in English. Overall , the tour was great and recommend this to a friend.

    Overall, it was a pleasant weekend trip. Getting on the shuttle from Flushing was a bit disorganized and chaotic. I got to flushing at 6:20, and the shuttle bus came at around 6:50. A lot of waiting around for the actual tour bus to get to Chinatown as well. Check-in time was 7:40 and then the bus arrived at around 8:10. My original seat was the last row on the bus and the window was covered with white residue, and water filled the inside of the window halfway. There was also a mushroom growing on the crack of the bathroom door. Fortunately, there were empty seats so I was able to switch to a window seat in the middle of the bus. There are USB ports overhead to charge your phone, but mine weren't working. Thankfully, I had my portable charger. No WIFI, I believe. After getting settled into the bus, the trip turned out to be more organized. You are not allowed to use the bathroom on the bus, but we made plenty of rest stops along the way for bathroom/food. You pay up front for the optional excursions you'd like to participate in, in addition to a mandatory $20 service gratuity for the driver/guide - this is standard for any tour you go on. The total came out to be $165 for me. The Museum of Science was not offered. I participated in every optional excursion, except the lobster meal. I went to Quincy Market instead and got a nice plate of raw shellfish, a lobster bisque and a glass of wine for about $33+tip. I also purchased an arancini in case I got hungry at the hotel, as well as a cheese danish to eat for breakfast. The hotel was not bad. My room had a microwave, fridge, iron, hair dryer, standard toiletries. I preferred the activities on the first day - the Breakers Mansion, NE Aquarium, Duck Tour. I would've liked a bit more time to spend at the mansion/aquarium, an hour just didn't feel like enough. The second day comprised of the university tours, which I wasn't very interested in to begin with but also didn't think it was worth the $10+ dollars. The Boston Harbor cruise was nice. Bus can get cold so bring a sweater/jacket on with you. Drop off at Flushing is a different location than pickup, so plan ahead for that. Drop off time was a little before 5:30. Eric was a great tour guide, very accessible through text or in person for questions.

    The tour guide was a bit scrambled and it was rainy but me & my wife had fun we have some tips for travelers buy breakfast the night before try getting some croissants or something non-perishable and stay hydrated also check forecast and pack appropriate shoes for the weather also don't pack heavy just take essentials because you have to carry all that stuff to your room after all and most of all have fun, vacations are meant to take you away from everyday surroundings so look around and enjoy the time be prepared and you will love it!

    Rachel took the service charge at the first day of the tour. The guide was not that active and lively. Holiday Inn was excellent.

    Bus #1771 2 Day Boston Rhode Island Day 1 The trip started off with an employee picking us up from 39-10 Main street in Flushing, New York in front of the HSBC bank at 6:30am. The person actually didn't get there until about 6:40am, but that’s cool. We were taken to 177 Canal street in Brooklyn, NY. The bus left Brooklyn at about 8:15am and we were headed to our first attraction, but before the attraction we stopped at a rest area to get a quick 45 minute bathroom break and food. The rest area was clean, (the rumors are true no one is permitted to use the bathroom on the bus). There was McDonald's, Subways, and Dunkn Donuts to choose from. After about 45 minutes we were headed to Rhode Island to The Breakers Mansion. Our tour guide Rachel (very nice and organized person, her English is perfect) mentioned the itinerary and the attractions we were going to see on the 2 day tour. Among the mentioned attractions 2 most important attractions that were on the website when I booked this trip were not mentioned. That was the museum of science and the Quincy Marketplace. It's not Rachel's fault, it's the taketours.com owner's fault. They do not update their website to explain/reflect that some of the attractions are dependent upon the weather conditions or they forget to remove older attractions that were not going to be on the current trip. So double check with the company before you book. The main reason my son wanted to go on this trip was to do the Harbor Boat Cruise and to go to one of the most talked about museums in Massachusetts which is the museum of science. The purpose of me booking this trip was to explore that museum and the Quincy Marketplace area. My children and I ended up going to the Marketplace 2xs on our own while the other tourist went to activities we opted out of. On to the annoying part of this trip. Long story short. This old Chinese lady just didn't know how to say sorry or excuse me and she bumped my son. This lady had a habit of pushing and rushing. Rachel spoke to the lady and told her to please keep her distance from my family. Attractions: You can read my detailed reviews on the individual attractions on my yelp reviews dated 8/18/18 and 8/19/18 1)The Breakers Mansion we toured for about an hour. Without using the devices 1 hour would be more than enough time. 2) New England Aquarium: The 2 hours was more than what we needed to explore the Aquarium. After about an hour of exploring we decided to leave and walk to the marketplace which was only a 3 to 5 minute walk from the aquarium. Our fellow bus riders headed to the $35 a person lobster dinner at about 7:30pm and we headed back to the marketplace to watch the free street performances and shop for 1 hour. About 9:15pm we arrived at the Holiday Inn. It was only about 30 minutes drive from the marketplace. It was clean, had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker. Wasn't as bad as I had thought. I brought my own pillowcases and wash items. Day 2 Headed out at 6:10am. FYI bring a sweater the bus gets chilly. First stop Harvard at about 7am for an in-depth guided tour. Second stop MIT arrived about 8:20am and left about 8:45am it is a self guided experience and it's free as well. Third stop was at 9:15am until 10:15am and that was the Harbor Cruise. That was worth every nickel. Just being able to sit was priceless. It's a tour so of course the crew member was talking about the history of the Harbor which was cool. She spoke in-depth about the Boston Tea Party... Fourth stop was Connecticut, Yale which I paid for a guided tour. Started about 1:40am until 3pm. It's optional as well. I paid because my son wants to attend a Yale (he’s 10). Never to early to start thinking. Remember look carefully, there are some trips that state attractions are (mandatory) and some trips with attractions that states it is (optional). Rest Area heading back home to NYC we stopped for 15 minutes. My only gripe is that the bus dropped us off between Northern and Main street instead of the original drop off and pick up location which was supposed to be 39-10 Main street Flushing. The drivers 2 children ages 8 and 15 were on the bus so I'm guessing it was so they'd be closer to take the bus home alone. In all fairness it was easier for people to get to the bus from here. However, unfair to my children and I because we had to wait over 15 minutes for my husband to come get us because he was waiting at the original location then got stuck in traffic coming to the new drop off location.
