Bad driver experience—rough 4 hours
If we had a better driver, this would be a very different review. Here’s my experience. (And if you look at my other reviews, they’re normally very positive. I also tried to email the company before writing this review, but their supplied email doesn’t work.)

I booked the 3 hr private Freedom Trail Tour several months in advance as I wanted my two teenage nieces and I to end our cruise in Boston on a high note. The company had strong reviews on Trip Advisor and was described as high-end. This was not our experience.

Our guide’s English was hard to understand—my teenage nieces understood little of the conversation—but that was minor compared to our other complaints. Here’s a detailed listing:

1) when he picked us up (a tad after the meeting time, vs most drivers who are there waiting for us) he had a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee in his hand. The front seat was full of various personal stuff that he had to move aside so I could sit down. Way too casual and messy vs what I was expecting.

2) he immediately told us that the car we had was an upgraded vehicle (it was a basic SUV) that should cost an extra $150. It took a lot of conversation before we clarified that there was no extra charge. He also told me the customary tip was 20-25% (!) very off-putting and a poor start before we were even out of the cruise terminal.

3) He had the drivers seat pushed all the way back, and the seat inclined all the way back, so my (petite) 13-yo niece had the seat pressing against her legs. After the first stop, I asked him to move up his seat so my niece had leg room—he gave her about an inch or so. She was uncomfortable the entire tour.

4) the front seat was so full of his stuff I had his constantly-buzzing cellphone by my leg and his gum and other stuff sliding off the console onto my lap.

5) the entire time it was clear he had a bad cold or some kind of sinus infection. I even asked him about it early on, hoping he’d get the hint and take an allergy pill or something. He coughed, snorted and hacked nonstop. Only once, at the end of almost 4 hours, did he even bother covering his mouth when he coughed. Extremely gross and my nieces were freaked out.

6) it was a blistering hot day, hours-long tour, and we were offered no beverages. I’ve had Lift drivers provide cold water, but nothing from him. 3-1/2 hours in, I saw a water bottle in the pocket by my door and said, “is this for us?” and proceeded to confiscate it for my nieces and I. He didn’t seem pleased.

We did enjoy seeing Boston, but dreading every time we were in the vehicle. It was a bad experience. I travel extensively and have lots of drivers/tours for comparison. This experience fell far short of my expectations and the description of services.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience and I appreciate you bringing this matter to my attention. I can assure you that I will address this with the driver and I can guarantee you that it will never happen again. If you contact me directly I will be happy to send you a refund, again I am sorry for the bad experience. Sincerely Derek D'Ambrosio

I am sorry about any Inconvenience. I am the owner and I did apologize to you over the phone. For the record you made a last minute (7pm the night before) Reservation for two SUV's. I tried to call you as soon as I the reservation came in to confirm that you actually needed two SUV because I thought you were charged twice for the same trip but you did not answer or call me back, so I asked Viator to contact you to let you know that we only had one SUV available. I am sorry that we could not accommodate you. We would have been able to accommodate your request if you had given us advance notice.

Canceled at last minute ruining my daughter’s graduation party. Then rude response to put insult to injury.

Who lied? Visitor who took my booking yesterday and had me on hold while they spoke with the company to confirm my trip? or is it the company who rudely told me today that aviator never spoke to them?
Doesn’t help me as due the lack of professionalism out booking of not one but two cars this morning did not take place.
Got an email from visitor this morning that said the trip could not take place as the operator had canceled. Called the number of the operator who said he didn’t know anything about the cancellation.
Called Vistor who said the operator had canceled.
Asked what was going on and after being an hour on hold with Vistor they blamed the operator.
Then connected me to the operator who said he was also the owner who was extremely rude and said ‘ Vistor never called me’ and essentially ‘don’t care’

Net would not recommend either this your or Viator who clearly don’t care about customer service - one of them clearly lying - either the call took place or it did not.

Ruined my day by canceling and then wasting my time back and forth between unprofessional providers.

No apology from either party.

Most Informative 3 Hours
May 2019 • Couples
Our tour began with a pick up at our hotel by Derek. With our very limited knowledge of Boston history we left our itinerary down to Derek. We spent three enjoyable hours being educated in a most light hearted way. We loved his ‘history lesson’ at Bunker Hill in particular. This tour is a great way to get a feel for Boston and its history which Derek delivered such information in a most professional way. Thank you Derek.

The Best Way to See a City
Sep 2018
Our guide, Stuart, was excellent. We saw everything we set out to, got to go inside and walk around several of the sights (don't miss the Paul Revere House) and he even bought us authentic Boston snacks!! Best Whoopie pie ever. Kudos to Stuart! And thanks for the side trip to Katzs' Bagels!
