Special thanks to our tour guide June who made our trip so memorable. June seemed to be always there, particularly knowledgeable, and making everybody trip special. I still cant get over how smoothly the trip ran. June freely shared with us her knowledge about every stop we made, and made sure that everything was taken care of for everyone along the way. She was a true professional. Every one of the places we visited was worth the visit. The Marthas Vineyard bus tour was very entertaining as we had a great guide from the island, and June translated what he was saying. We opted out of the USS Nautilus in Groton CT as $10 was collected for admission and we knew, having visited there the prior year, that admission is free.
The tour is great, we seen a lot of whales. Rachel is very nice and knowlegeable. We also have plenty of free time to roam around.Except for the hotel, which is smelling bad and linen looks like have not been washed for a long time Management should inspect first the hotel they are serving for customer.
The Martha Vineyard tour was amazing. We didn't go whale watching due to hurricane Dorian. However they took us to the Vanderbilt Mansion Museum as a replacement and it did not disappoint. Our tour guide James was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Will go back next year so we can do the whale watching, This is my second tour and it won't be our last.
Okay trip overall. Plimoth Plantation and the Pilgrim Monument were fun. I would've skipped the sightseeing bus at Martha's Vineyard and the Pirate Museum in PTown as well. You should definitely bring food/buy something small at night to eat for breakfast the next day because the hotel does not serve breakfast and you do not make a stop for breakfast. Hotel was bearable, fridge included but no microwave. My coffee maker wasn't working but they had a water heater in the lobby. There is a vending machine with $1 waters so I stocked up on those for the following day. On the last day you have an option to pay for a lunch buffet - our guide told us McDonald's was the only other option but there were other places to eat nearby (i.e., Taco Bell, Subways) so don't feel like you have to pay for the lunch. My biggest issue with this trip was the $10 charge for the USS Nautilus Museum. As soon as you enter the museum, you see a donation box that clearly states "Admission is Free". When I asked the tour guide why we were charged $10, she said the tour company charges for taking us there. That makes no sense. I could've opted out of that excursion and still gotten in. At the end of the day it's "only $10". I wouldn't have minded donating that to the actual museum for entrance but it seemed sketchy that the guide knew it was free and proceeded to collect our money anyway.
