Very good. So much history in the Boston Harbor. It was raining very hard, but we still enjoyed the trip.
We had family from Arizona in to Boston for a visit. A large group of us went on this tour. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we all thought the cruise was very informational. Had a great time and would definitely recommend.
This tour was good. I learned a lot and it was well-worth it going on this tour. The only issue we had was a couple was accidentally left in Lexington and the tour guide took us the Concord before going back to get the missing people.
I've taken this tour a few times with out of town guests. It is a great way to get a little bit of history and see some of the harbor.
the guide was good but his voice was inaudible which is obvious as the speakers are not well placed. was kind of boring..
We were sitting on the top deck but the sound system was not working on that deck so it was just a cruise with no commentary.
I did enjoy it however, I would have liked to get a closer look at the lighthouse though.
Tour guide was quiet for much of trip, didn't explain many of the sights. Boat was clean, had indoor and outdoor seating! For the price, we didn't think it was worth it given we didn't learn much!
Very good cruise, really enjoyed it. Got some fantastic photos, boat easy to get on and off I've got a bad leg. Staff were lovely and scenery brilliant
It was good, very worthwhile and relaxing. ..You can sit inside or out, so weather not a huge problem. Get there early though, it's a very crowded area with a lot of people and excursions; it may take awhile to find the line you are supposed to be in. also, allow a bit a extra time to go to the Boston Harbor Tour office (small building with whale on top) to exchange your printed voucher for tickets to board the boat. Also, we had reservations to eat lunch prior to the boat trip at Ned Devine's Irish Pub in Quincy Market (upstairs). That was very good and worked out well.
This was a pleasant trip but what we enjoyed most of all was that the Tour Kiosk let us four take this tour because we had missed our scheduled 3pm harbor island sightseeing cruise because of horrendous traffic coming over the Tobin Bridge. We were very appreciative of their understanding.
