Customer Q & As

Ask a Question
Good Morning, I have a question for return bus. can I choice pick up location & drop off location differently? I'd like to choice Manhattan as departure location and Flushing as return location.
by stella lee on 2019-09-30
Dear Stella Lee, Thank you for your interest at TakeTours. Yes you are able to have a different pick up and drop off location we will just have to notify the operator of this request and they will have to confirm. Once you make the reservation, please contact us back with the different location points so we can forward them the request. Best Regards, DianaP
by Taketours on 2019-10-01
Can I take the tour but opt out of some parts of the tour, on the second day, to explore on my own? I would like to take both buses to and from with the tour group and stay in the accommodation provided, but may not be able to join the tour on Saturday during the day. Would that be an issue?
by rep on 2016-10-17
Thank you for your email, Unfortunately the tour already has a set itinerary if you want to explore on your own you can but you will have to find your own transportation to the hotel afterwards. The bus will not wait for you, and you have to let your tour guide know that you will explore on your own and you will meet them at the hotel. You are still required to pay the mandatory $8/day/passenger for that day. If you have any further questions feel free to contact our support group available 24/7.

Hi Can we be picked up for the tour in Flushing and dropped off after the tour in Manhattan
by Julie Gowen on 2016-09-15
Thank you for your email, when you make a reservation we can send a request to see if it will be allowed for you to get picked-up and dropped-off in different locations. We can't guarantee that you will be able to, but we will certainly help you try. If you have further questions feel free to contact our support team available 24/7. Best Regards.
by Taketours on 2016-09-16
I know a lot depends on traffic and travel times, but based on past history could you please give a breakdown as to approximately how much time we would get at some of the attractions? Especially the aquarium. Also, what are the in season dates for the lobster steal cruise? Thanks!!! Liz
by liz on 2016-09-08
Thank you for your email, Unfortunately because there are so many factors involved in time management, we would not be able to give you any certain times for attractions. The Lobster steal is a year round event. You might not catch many depending on the season times. If you have further questions feel free to contact our support group available 24/7. Best Regards!

  • I just came back from 3 days Maine Acadia Labour day long weekend trip. I had a nice experience with this trip and our tour guide Mathew Fun is nice and friendly. He is very well knowledgeable and speaks both Mandarin and English well. I like the itinerary and enjoy a lot. The only draw back is the cup holders at different seats I sat on 3 days were dirty. The hotel was nice. Overall I recommend this trip.

  • Just returned from 3 day Acadia national park tour. Our tour guide Hao was incredible. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone’s needs were met. Hao was knowledgeable regarding the areas we visited and the history. The sights we visited were beautiful!! I will book another tour in the future and hope that Hao will be the guide

  • I took the 3-day Acadia National Park tour with Allen Zhao as my tour guide. I can go on about how unforgettable and breathtaking the views were but I want everyone to know how great of a tour guide Allen Zhao was. He truly cares about his craft, he made sure everyone understand everything, as he was very clear with his guide. And he made sure we knew of all the great scenic routes for the best pictures. All in all, I couldn’t have had a better person to guide me through my dream destination !

  • Dipto

  • Liked the tour overall. Tour guide Matthew was excellent. However you could avoid Boston in favor of other attractions in RI or Maine.. Could have been given more time in Bar Harbor and arranged trip to beeches instead of the zoo at York. Otherwise it was a great tour

  • Alex

  • The tour was great and so was our guide Jayant. Despite a few difficulties, like not being able to drive up Cadillac Mtn or the AC breaking down, he ensured that we still had a great time. I visited all of these places before privately, so this was a great opportunity to revisit them without having to drive.
