    Boston is much better with a friend!

    A friend came to visit me, I was super worried about what to do, what to visit, as I knew her dream was to go to Boston, the moment she told me she have bought the fly ticket, I started to look for a tour that would help me to reach my goal..., to make her dream become true but not al the same time no to spend a lot of money, so, when I found this awesome tour, I couldn't say no, I booked it, and you know, all was just perfect, the hotel, the bus, the schedule, the guide tour, the places we visited.

    More than Boston

    I had so much fun with this one! i have to say, I would love to know a little bit more about Boston itself you know(buildings, streets, etc) but i had more than i asked for. If you're taking this tour, don't do it near holidays so you can h...ave a deep tour through the universities and take your power bank with you because you'll want to share all you'll see, and a normal battery can't handle it in one day.
