If there were 10 stars, this tour deserves them all! The tour started very early in the morning and after a second pit stop to pick up other passengers we headed to Boston. Around 9 am there will be a stop for breakfast on the highway and then leave for Boston with a splendid story of anecdotes and history of the city thanks to our guide. Once in Boston we were able to see what we wanted! Harvard, MIT, the main square is the finish line of the marathon, the most suggestive streets, the Market, the public library is still! Our guide Milly was wonderful! He gave us valuable advice and told us ancient stories, making the tour unforgettable! Surely the time available is right to see what is described, it is certain that you must start with the awareness that you do not have the whole day available for the visit but will stop only at the main points.

At first I was skeptical about making a short trip to Boston at all, since the city is rather "uninteresting" compared to New York and Washington. On the tour I was taught better and afterwards I am very happy that I did the tour. The different facets and historical backgrounds of the city are shown on the tour. Our guide, who came from Boston, also showed us places away from the hustle and bustle. The city makes you want more!! I can really recommend the tour to everyone!!

It was a great experience. I really enjoyed the trip, our very attentive and friendly guide, everything very well scheduled on time and enough to know the most relevant things in the city, good places visited, the explanation, the recommendations of the places to eat, coincided with the preparations of the marathon, comfortable transportation, speaking in Spanish and English, the price was adequate, I had a lot of fun, I recommend it 100%, thanks Mili.
