Hotel pick up and drop off were a bonus. Our guide was knowledgeable, kind and humorous. The bus ride was good and we had lots of scenic areas to view. We were never on the bus longer than 1 1/2 hours. We enjoyed everything about this trip and would book with this touring group again.

We had the absolute best time; weather held out and we never got rained on. Saw amazing colors; had been alerted before hand since we are at end of “season” the colors were almost gone. and yes way up in mountains there were some dull areas we noticed; but the depth of colors in all the areas we stopped were nothing short of breathtaking. Kieran was a rock star, not only a great driver and dunkin’ donuts history buff, and seemingly a jack of all trades, he definitely knows the special tucked away gems to enhance the experience. And he was able to give multitude of recommendations for lunch options to make both carnivores and vegetarians happy. Thank you for a day of disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city and taking us out to experience the slow and tranquil side of mother nature in locations that were nothing short of breathtaking!

Customers were given Autumn brochures and map while they hopped on to the bus tour. The brochure contains different Autumn leaves’ pictures for references. The driver was on time to pick and to return us to our respective hotel location. Driver was accommodating and gave us heads up on information about the history of Boston and a brief history of Massachusetts, such as: Boston known as the Bean town, seafood city, Boston Tea Party and The Pilgrims on the Mayfliwer that made its way to Plymouth Rock and what we would expect to see on our way to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Driver was respectful and friendly.
