Scenic Boston with Airport Transfer (without prepaid transfer voucher)

Enjoy the highlights of Boston as this panoramic driving tour takes you past the city’s most important and scenic sights. One of the city’s most attractive spots is Copley Square bordered by the architectural wonders of Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library. Driving through the upscale residential area of Back Bay and along Newbury Street, you will pass a number of elegant boutiques and trendy cafés. Head past the Public Garden to Beacon Hill, one of the wealthiest and most elegant neighborhoods of the city. You can’t miss the golden dome of the Massachusetts State House, as well as the Old South Meeting House where the Boston Tea Party began. Looking across the Charles River to see the steeple of the Old North Church where Paul Revere ordered two lanterns hung to signal that the British Recoats were approaching by sea. You will also see the Old South Meeting House where the Boston Tea Party began. End your tour at Boston’s Logan Airport.Notes: Available to guests with flights departing at 2:00pm or later. This tour is for those guests who do not already have their airport transportation and need to purchase a transfer with their sightseeing tour.

If you haven't been to Boston, this is probably a good introduction to the city. However, it is merely a bus ride through the city with the tour guide providing some highlights. However, the tour is extremely short. We left the cruise terminal at 8:30, and arrived at the airport by 10:30. This trip was designated for those who had flights after 2. With this in mind, I expected that the arrival at the airport would be closer to noon.
I don't think that this was a good value for the money paid. I would like to have the opportunity to explore more of the city, and spend another hour on the tour, with a couple 20-30 minute stops.

We had a great time on this tour and had a wonderful guide who pointed out all the sights. I grew up in the Boston area, but my husband did not, so I wanted him to see what a great city Boston is. We rode past the old North Church and into the downtown shopping area, around the Common, and stopped to take photos in Copley Square and at the State House. We went over to Cambridge to see Harvard and MIT with the guide commenting all the way. I am planning to take this tour again this summer when we get off the ship in Boston.

We opted for the Boston tour with airport transfer as we had a late flight home and wanted to see some of Boston. The tour was interesting as I had never been to Boston, but the guide never once mentioned the freedom trail, one of the highlights, and the tour was very short (1 1/2 hours) but was billed as 2 1/2 hours. Other busses with the same tour arrived after 2+ hours so I felt this was not a good value. I will search for tours from other vendors in the future.

We had a long wait until our flight and thought this might be interesting, but it really wasn't. We passed the same building 5 times - evidently, we were just driving in circles. We were amazed at the sights our guide didn't point out. While I'm a Boston newbie, my husband's been there a time or two. It simply wasn't worth the money.
