      Now, here is my real, brief review: Deb and Sampson were great. We have taken several land/bus tours in the past, all in Europe. In each of them there was consideration of the slower pace accommodating an older group, a pace with periods of time to lay back, rest and reflect on what we have been doing. Also, having some private time to get ready for a large meal...not just get off the bus and sit down to eat...all sweaty, dusty and tired. Never experienced that before. and it substracted from the experience. This was a high compressed trip and it exhausted us. We required two days+ to get back on our feet back home. There were more than a few things we didn't have to see: Cookie cutter houses, Chatam light house, a bus ride through MIT and Harvard, etc. All took time and attention that could have been used to put air into the trip to unwind the guests. To sum up: the trip was simply too intense. Sun up to sun down, and repetitious. We hooked up with friends to take this trip and I admit I wouldn't have chosen it myself. It could have been done better. Where was historic Boston? We just looked at buildings and boats and fields of headstones. I would have liked a more personable connection with the places, but that's just me. Chuck Henrickson

      This trip had a little of everything, Boston, history, sailing, seafood, island life and a wonderful bunch of people traveling with my wife and I. Deb, our guide/storyteller kept us well informed and led the way to the islands! The extra touches, like the schooner cruise were a lot of fun. The lobster dinner introduced a few people to a whole lobster. Scenic, well planned and rewarding, that is the Enchanting Islands of New England. ACM
