      The show was great, the bus driver and Tour director were fantastic! Hope they are both with us for Longwood Gardens!

      A great, well organized trip with Robert. I love the comfy busses. (not my first trip).
      By patricia z for The Who's TOMMY on Broadway on Jul 20, 2024
      Long trip to the stadium with heavy traffic from returning vacationers. Driver handled it really well with exceptional amount of patience. Phil did well to keep us advised of the traffic issues and what to expect when we got to the stadium. He also did yeoman,s work to get us together and through the right gate at the stadium. Meal ticket voucher worked well for me, but apparently not so well for some others. The only downer for the day was our seats. Not good at all as we were cut off from viewing most of center and right fields. Despite the heat/humidity, I stood in the bar area to our immediate left so that I could view the entire field. Phil checked with us during the game and could appreciate the seating issues. It was good to see him care enough to check. Great job by the driver to get us on the way home through the upper Bronx - wow…

      Another awesome trip. Had a great time and great experience. I love this company and recommend to anyone and everyone without hesitation. If I could give more stars, I would. Thank you Gary's Tours for doing what you do.
