Great Private Tour of the Boston Area
Lis_A
, Apr 2022
Sam was great. The tour was very informative and interesting. We covered most sites at Boston and Cambridge. Some areas were not reachable due to the marathon, but Sam took us to other beautiful places we were not planning to see. The car was super clean, modern and comfortable. We had a wonderful time. Definitely recommended, specially if you don't have too much time to see Boston and you want to see and learn as much as possible.

This is the best way to see the most of Boston in 4 hours. There were 6 in our group - my wife and I with 4 teenagers one being Brazilian. Sam is the man and speaks Portuguese. He gave us details in 2 languages. He picked us up at our hotel and brought us back. Highly Recommended!! Voce é o cara! Muito Obrigado!!

This was a wonderful tour and so worth the money. We saw so much and our guide was so knowledgeable. It would have taken us a whole week to see all he showed us. He knew all types of things we would have never known had we did this our self.

Was okay. Driver was genial but he seemed to be doing trip on auto-pilot. Was not a memorable day. Every other Viator trip we’ve done we’ve had more fun. Disappointing for the price.

Good tour to get familiar with the Boston metropolitan area
Robert_F

Sam, our tour guide, pick us up at the hotel and promptly started the tour. He was very knowledgeable on the layout of Boston and Cambridge. We did stop at the Cheers Bar and Boston Harbor take to pictures. Most of the remaining time was driving throughout the city. I didn't realize there were so many colleges and universities in the Boston metropolitan area. Dino would have stopped wherever we wanted him to. It was a good tour to get familiar with the city and other things to do in the city.

Boston Tour

My girlfriends and I did a tour of Boston with Boston Private City Tour. It was wonderful. Sam our driver and tour guide picked us up at our hotel and drove us all over Boston for four hours pointing out every important site and giving us the history of the area. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all live in Boston suburbs and have been in and out of Boston for years, but we learned things about the city we never knew before. We had the opportunity to customize the tour, but we allowed Sam to be in charge and we were very happy with his route around town.

Sam picked us up at the cruise terminal & gave us a professional & courteous private tour, including sites that were not usually included in big bus tours. At the end of the 4 hour tour, Sam dropped us off at Logan Airport. Couldn't have had a better time between end of cruise & catching flight home. Highly recommended.

Sam was our driver. He picked us up in a beautiful Ford Explorer. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. Besides pointing out the most famous places, He also gave us time to walk and explore the highlights of the city. I highly recommend this service.
