This was a great tour. Sam I Am was a Excellent guide. He had lots of information and stories about the places he took our tour to. It was an enjoyable day. Was great idea for our first trip to Boston for sure! So glad we did this.
There is nothing better than seeing some of our Country's historic places where our freedom was founded, with a tour guide who is proud to be an American! Sam brought his vast knowledge and enthusiasm on the bus and by the end of the day - we ALL were proud to be Americans; learning much about the price other paid for our right to be a free country!! God Bless You Sam!!
This tour covered quite a bit of territory. It was very interesting. I like that certain fees were covered. Sam was good. He did smoke just outside the bus door, which wasn't okay with many. When asked to move he did. He did mention tipping often; that was unnecessary.
