To begin with the day was rainy but the guide was excellent very knowledgeable he took us around to several different towns and explain the history behind each place and then since McDonald was not open he took us to Dunkin Donuts and get breakfast he made sure which are all of the interesting places and waited gave us plenty of enough time to look around and then it turns out that it was still raining when we got back so he actually took me to my hotel and he also told me that tomorrow's future I could pick up right around the corner and called and changed my pickup point for me I have to give Chris a high five and I thank you

Mini bus picked us up from our Hotel and our driver / host was very pleasant and engaging. We all agreed to tinker with the itinerary a little bit but that was fine. We visited the homes of the Adams family before heading to the coast for a very picturesque and scenic drive with plenty of stops. Plenty of time for lunch and exploring at Plymouth before a very interesting visit to the Plimouth plantation to learn about the Pilgrims and their relationship with the native americans as they made a new home. It was a long day but loads to see and do and good value!

Day Trip to Plymouth and Cape Cod

This day trip that you advertised was very miss leading!!! We never got to see Cape Cod. We were expecting to see the beaches at Cape Cod and the homes and lighthouses. Instead we were on a boring trip to a Floral museum and an Indian museum in Plymouth that nobody enjoyed. The food at the Indian museum was below average. We did get to see Plymouth Rock.

The tour was great, but the driver was a bit too political in his presentation. We all have a right to have and express our opinions, but not expound on them over a microphone to a captive audience.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Boston. We especially enjoyed the Plymouth Plantation because we saw skits, readings, actors dressed up in costumes, and included audience participation. It was a great trip and would recommend it to anyone.
