“Our experience with your company was fantastic. They really went above and beyond to make our Boston experience wonderful. Our guides really knew how to make the tour interesting. Some people try to appeal to kids and fail miserably, but they were just corny enough, without losing the respect of the students. We learned lots of behind the scenes information that isn’t in text books. We will definitely plan a tour again with you next year.” – Tom, Pioneer Valley Christian School
