For $200, I excited to finally see the ponies crossing the river, but didn't find out until I was on the boat that it had been canceled this year. Only a few horses grazing on the bank. I was disappointed that the Crab feast served menu items only one at a time in small boats. I purchased the "pineapple" drink the DJ repeatedly advertised. I was surprised that the one drink was $30!! For that price, I expected one of those large obnoxious drinks that could be shared. But it turned out to be a pineapple "pina colada" for one. Worse, for dramatic effect, they served the shot of alcohol separately in huge syringe! When I tried to add the alcohol, it couldn't penetrate the thick liquid already in the cup, so the drink immediately overflowed spilling all of the shot onto the table. When I complained to the waitress, she was informed by the bartender that it was not their fault, meaning I was charged $30 for a virgin drink. One of the other diners asked to see the manager. The manager repeated that it wasn't their fault that the drink did not absorbed the side shot. Furthermore, she asked the where about of the syringe 3 times--which was obviously more important than the visible puddle of alcohol on the table--to which she was informed 3 times, by myself and other diners, that the busboy took it with the table scraps. I told her that for $30, I should not have had to mix my own drink, otherwise there should have been room left in the glass for the extra liquid. Finally, she brought me another shot of "something" but in a glass. Lastly, after an exhausting day, I had the privilege of sitting directly in front of the only loud talkers on the bus, whose disregard for the comfort other passengers. When they began to sing, another passenger loudly cleared her throat. They laughed and exchanged tales stretching from their relatives to what kind of pornograpy they liked (LITERALLY!!). Otherwise, it was just good to get out.

I just wanted to try something different. I didn’t know what to expect. What are the venues going to be like? Who are the other travelers? (We’ll be stuck together ALL DAY.) Hands down… I was not disappointed. Our trip was worth the money spent. Good food, good people and great vibes!

Great trip! I learned about Harriet Tubman's early life experiences that prepared her to be a successful conductor on the underground railroad. I also learned that living on the water and there being so much marsh land, the slaves had a different experience than those who lived further south and inland and learned a different skill set. After emancipation, they used those skills to build a thriving community with a school, hospital, businesses, and owned their own land and homes. Then there is the sad, too often repeated, story of how it was taken from them. There are two museums - one sponsored my the community and the other by the National Parks Commission. Both are worth visiting. After the history lesson, there was the crab feast which also featured chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, Cole slaw, and baked beans. Alex, Lisa, and extended family members were personable and hospitable. Alex and Lisa have grown up and lived In the Cambridge area all their lives and it is quite evident that they are proud of its history. I have eagerly told my friends about this trip and three immediately tried to register for the August trip, but there was only seat left! I plan to go again because it it too much to absorb in one trip and I want to take my granddaughter.

Great trip and host. I learned so much on the tour. Everyone traveling was friendly and courteous. The bus driver was great. Helped me off and on the bus each time and was pleasant. Not enough leg room for the bus when sitting upright. I had to swing my legs in aisle to be comfortable. Andrea was great. Otherwise crab feast was just awesome and the place we had it at were so nice. Food was good. Would recommend trip.
