Was so happy to finally be able to take the Architectural Tour (BBF) on this line. The captain was friendly, the narrator very informative & willing to share knowledge. There was a nice crowd who joined, but it was not filled to capacity so you...More
Wasn't very impressed. The views are good but everything else is just okay. I would not take my friends who are out of Boston on their tours again.More
Hi Darya, We are sorry that you did not have an enjoyable cruise with us! If you are willing to give us another try we open back up in May with sightseeing cruises running and I would be happy to give you a discounted ticket....More
The architecture tour shows that Boston doesn’t have good modern architecture. From the river you will not see colonial architecture but instead college buildings starting in the 60s when the style was stark and bleak. The staff always are great on these tours but, this...More
Thank you for your review! We are glad the staff was at your service but we are sorry you didn't have an enjoyable experience. Each tour is a little different with the guides by Boston By Foot but Boston is home to many different styles...More
I was meeting a friend in Boston and we booked the Fall Foliage tour on a whim. We were hesitant about it and the idea of being too touristy, but it was so much fun! The foliage this year was lacking, but the Captain was...More
Thank you for coming on one of our Fall Foliage Cruises! We are so glad you enjoyed the cruise with one of our Fall Drink Specials in hand! We will be sure to have them back again next year along with the apples and cookies!

Hi Bill, Thanks for cruising with us and for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your time on board while also experiencing the CambridgeSide Mall and surrounding areas! We hope you come back and cruise with us again in the future!
We booked two of the Charles Riverboat Company cruises prior to arriving in Boston. First, we took the architecture cruise. Part of the appeal of this cruise was the fact that it took us out into the bay. We were blessed with a gorgeous day,...More
Thank you so much for your review and riding two cruises with us! We are so glad you had the opportunity to view the city from both the Charles River and Boston Harbor on the two cruises. We are in the process of updating the...More
I write to complement Charles Riverboat Company's management and the crew of the Charles I for dealing exceptionally fairly and professionally with circumstances that were beyond their control on the August 6, 2017 Architecture Cruise. [Full disclaimer: I was the volunteer Boston By Foot tour...More
Hi Tom, Thank you so much for your kind words. Although it was an unfortunate event that has only happened to us once before, we were glad to offer all that we did even though there was nothing we could do about the situation. We...More
My husband and I went on the Charles River Sightseeing Tour last week and loved it. We have originally chosen the sunset tour, but when I learned that it was not narrated, we switched to a daytime, narrated tour. Even though I have lived in...More
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed our cruise and hearing the fun facts! We pride ourselves in cleanliness! We hope you come again in the future!
