A perfect one day trip to Boston!
Marisa_C, Oct 2023
I had a great time on my day trip to Boston with Royal City Tour. It was well organized, perfect timing. Pick-up and drop-off in midtown Manhattan are convenient. The bus was clean and comfortable and the ride enjoyable. Both tour guide and driver were excellent, very professional. The tour guide (Millie?) was knowledgeable, friendly and a good storyteller. I’m really happy that I took this tour. It was packed with a lot of things to see without feeling too rushed. Besides, I got so lucky with the weather: it was glorious. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to visit Boston without spending the night there.

We get a lot of wrong informations. We get freetime always on the wrong places . And the whole time i had heart „all is to expensive for normal people „
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Dear Christiane_R Thank you for spending your time to leave us a review. We appreciate all the comments positive and negative. We sincerely apologize if: the Boston Public Library, Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, Harvard University, the Freedom Trail, and Quincy Market were all the wrong places to visit while in Boston. Still, we genuinely believe those are the must-visit places in Boston as described in our tour description.

This tour involves a little walking and a chance to see the highlights of Boston in a day. It’s a 4 hour ride and goes by pretty fast. The outlets on the bus did not work so bring a portable charger. I enjoyed visiting Harvard and Quincy Market. I would recommend Quincy Market be a 2 hr stop because the time went by so quick. There is a stop In Connecticut on the way back to New York so you get to see a little of Connecticut.
Fantastic tour

Great trip and the guide tour Meli was fantastic. Enjoyed and had a good time. The restaurant choices with no seating area was a bit uncomfortable.
Fantastic Voyage

My guide informed me of so much great information and let us take fantastic pictures. You have to go to the Boston Market it’s so many shops and a chance to be with the locals. The guide definitely did a great job with the knowledge of historical facts she has of Boston which really helped.
