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.
Nice experience! Great itinerary, tour guide Mathew was knowledgeable, cool and funny. Bus driver did great job. Fortunately all of passengers were great, no one cause delays. The day 1 accommodation was not that good but day 2 accommodation was nice. The Pirates museum was below my expectation.
I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends:)
The tour guide, Vicki, was very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the bus driver drove too fast at times and he kept stepping on the brakes which caused the bus to make jerking movements. At times this made me feel rather nausea. The location of the hotel was in the heart of Hyannis which was great. The hotel was clean enough but it looked like it sorely needed new furniture and a paint job. Nonetheless, the bed was really comfortable. For the most part it was a good experience and it was in no small part due to the tour guide.
This trip was amazing, I would definitely recommend it. Aside from the amazing trip it would have been nice if the buffet was included on the itinerary, thankfully extra money was set aside for leisure use. Overall a very nice trip
Tour was great! The tour guide explained well. However, for a fourth of July weekend, they could have planned better. The bus driver kept stopping suddenly and was starving at night. The first night accommodation wasn't great..the bedding was stained. I wouldn't mind paying more. The second night accommodation was way better and no complaints with that night. The whole trip with the activities was great because you do save money and we were greatly well rested since we didn't drive. We could sleep on the bus and it was a comfortable clean bus seat. There was a miscommunication with the tour guide the last day but thank goodness we did not miss our rides despite the fact that she had our cell numbers. We were right on time at the meeting point but II wonder if the tour guide would have called us or looked for us if we weren't at the meeting point.
Had such a great time on this trip to Cape Cod last summer that we decided to take it again this year on the Fourth of July weekend, was wonderful to explore three of the six New England states- Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. The daytime Fourth of July parade in Provincetown was really fun and the American history at the Pilgrim Monument, Pilgrims First Landing Park, Plimouth Plantation, Mayflower Ship, and Plymouth Rock were great American locations to be at on Independence Day weekend, thank you we had fun!
We took the tour in June which was great because Cape Cod and the other destinations weren't very crowded and the weather was nice, not too hot. Martha's Vineyard was beautiful, We enjoyed the ferry ride a lot, also the whale watching in Provincetown was good, we actually saw a baby whale, however, I recommend (against the tour guide's decision) to eat lunch before you go to the pirate museum. The reason is that most people in our group went to the museum and after ate lunch right before the whale watching! It is common sense not to eat before you go out to the open rough sea! So many people got seasick on the boat!! Eat lunch first as the bus arrives to Provincetown, then go to the pirate museum and the whale watch, so your stomach can rest before the boat ride. The ocean was very rough with huge waves, so be prepared: take a raincoat! Plymouth was a favorite, absolutely fantastic! Trip overall was great, very tiring but you can sleep on the bus!
We had so much fun with our trip. Our bus tour of Martha's Vineyard was educational and entertaining. One of the big events was the whale watching, though it rained that day, the captain of the boat made sure we had an unforgettable experience. Visiting the towns of Cape Cod left me with great memories and I hope to be back there someday. Our hotel accommodation was nice. Our bus driver and tour guide Vicky was nice to us and really guided us the whole time. I'm looking forward for another tour this fall.
I went to Martha's Vineyard last week and I really liked it. Our tour guide, named Sunny Shen, was very attentive and always was present helping us. He explained with details about the history of the places that we visited.
The driver also was very professional and careful. We got in Manhattan early, no traffic.
I really had a great time and look forward for the next trip.
I took this trip on the Fourth of July weekend and enjoyed so much the American History from the Pilgrims' First Landing Park, The Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, The Mayflower II Pilgrim Ship, Plymouth Rock, and the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth all brought to life the early stories of America mixed with seeing the New England summer communities made for an excellent summer weekend. We had fun!!!
My family had the best time on this tour. The tour guide Danny was very informative, attentive, and friendly. It would have been even greater if the accommodations were a little better. We will definitely travel again with this tour company. The tour was well planned, with no wasted time.
Danny, the tour guide is excellent, very easy going, really nice. Hotels are poorly located, we had to go east-west many times. Could have saved time for longer sight seeing. Driver is careful. Will recommend tour. Do not like the pirate museum. I'd like to add that the whale watching was awesome. Just starting the boat ride we saw a bunch of dolphins right near us. We saw so many whales farther out, and it was so awesome. Hard to describe the feeling. I've been to several whale watching trips, and this is the first time we saw so many whales. Really good! I will post the photos. I am so excited just talking about it!
Our 3 day trip to Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard was well organized, interesting, and fun. Dandan, our tour guide, was really good and managed to keep the group compact, amused, adn informed about the plans and the meeting times. Hotel was also nice and clean. I highly recommend this tour! It was my first one with this agency, now I know I can book more trips, as I found the organization reliable!
We got back Sunday night. It was okay for the price we paid. The tour guide was awesome!!! What a kind man, very easy going. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars. Accommodation, not so good. The 1st night, we had roaches in the bathroom & the 2nd night, the smell of wet, like a never used room. My son has asthma so it was not a good night sleep for him. Transportation, no wi-fi on the bus bus the bus driver was very nice to everyone. Itinerary, great. Everything else aside, it was great to do the trip with a group. Very well organized!
We just got back from our tour.First of all, Danny - our tour guide- rocks! A very relaxing and enjoyable tour. The first day had travel from NY to Martha's Vineyard and then the time spent at martha's vineyard which made the day very hectic and tiring but the other two days were really relaxing. The whale watching trip to the atlantic ocean was thrilling but beware of sea sickness(use the lowest deck if you start feeling sick or take the tablets they give you on the ship or skip the ride altogether). The Hotel stay on both days was at very good sites - days inn and confort inn.
Cape Cod was breathtaking! On the third day , we saw a little of US immigration history. We had 2-3 hours free time every day to pursue whatever we wanted and then get back to the designated point at a given time. I enjoyed this free time to explore the area around us(best part of the tour according to me).If you bring beach gear, you could spend time on the beach during your free hour(at martha's vineyard and at cape cod). I saw a lot of kids on this tour, it was fun and informative for them.
I took this tour this summer, it was very relaxing. The tour guides were very experienced. The tour itself was designed very nicely - not too much rush. only thing, I did not like was the time at Beaker Mansion. Would be more fun.
