BOSTON - "Feedback on the trip: Everyone loved it! The rain was even ok because it cooled us off from the heat. We loved the hotel, the lobster cruise, the fireworks, everything. Our guide was great. We couldn’t have driven around Boston without him and he knew everything and was very conscientious. Loved seeing the Constitution on the cruise and people were able to get on it when we were at the naval yard.

The hotel breakfasts were good. The hotel was great. They got us ice for our coolers on the bus twice. It was really a great trip. You did a really great job planning it and coordinating it and it was nice meeting you." - Mifflin Historical Society

This hotel is beautiful and knows how to handle large numbers of guests!

Your guide was great; I don’t think there was anything in Boston we did not see!

The entertainment, dinner and fireworks were the perfect way to end the trip!

This was our first tour with Starr and it was absolutely fabulous. We look forward to more tours!

Elizabeth, our Boston guide was extremely organized, pleasant and knowledgeable.

Elizabeth was brilliant – handled all situations (crowds, traffic) very efficiently

This was an excellent 4th of July celebration and a wonderful addition to your assortment of trips

This was a great time! We were kept busy and we saw a lot!

Put me on the list again for next year!"  - Starr

TANGLEWOOD SUMMER SUNDAYS Success Stories

What Our Customers Have to Say...

Nice Drive We loved this tour company. It was the perfect way to get from Boston to Tanglewood and back. We would highly recommend and will be using it again.  


Wonderful Day! Wonderful day! Great to have a wonderful crew to ensure that everything went well and on schedule.  

Great Service.  Great Concert.  We had a wonderful time at Tanglewood, and a very smooth ride there thanks to the efficient bus service from the Boston Common.  Worth leaving the car at home for a more relaxing trip. 


A BIG thank you to you Nancy!!!!!! We will definitely go again next year!!!!! 


We very much enjoyed our trip to Tanglewood on July 21.  Our guide was lovely and we enjoyed the video she played on the way out about the Rockwell Museum.  A wonderful day, and we will plan to going there with you again next season.  Thanks very much.


The trips are well organized, the bus very comfortable and the Tanglewood experience always memorable.  We definitely hope to be back next summer.  


Great way to enjoy such a beautiful place. Definitely more relaxing than driving. Drove through Stockbridge to avoid the traffic on the way back and Mary Pat was very informative. The video of Norman Rockwell was delightful as well.


Thanks for making very last weekend of month-long stay in Massachusetts with fantastic tour for Tanglewood.  All staffs and participants are Classical music lovers and will never forget every moment of trip, even on board of bus!!


Great trip to Tanglewood. I just wanted to say that my friend and I really enjoyed the trip to Tanglewood yesterday.  Mary Pat (Tour Director) was excellent...very organized and fun to be with, with lots of good commentary on the sights as we moved along.  I hope she'll be a directing next year.


That was the most enjoyable and relaxing trip to Tanglewood we have ever taken.  We have always bought our own tickets and driven out there from the Boston area. I don't think we will be doing that again!  The bus left at a very easy time, reasonable parking, clean and luxurious bus with wifi, wonderful and attentive Tour Director, Julie.  The BSO was incredible as usual and we got home about 8:30 PM completely relaxed.  It was like a great one day vacation. Thank you Berkshire Tour Company!
