I thought this was a pretty fun way to see the Boston Harbor. Girlfriend and I bought a Groupon for this tour and I'd say it was worth it. The boats are well maintained and pretty easy to learn. Staff were pretty chill. The tour...More

It was the perfect end to a beautiful weekend in Boston. We first drove slowly and looked at the city and then went full speed around the islands. It was my husband's birthday present and he loved it!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
