    The staff of Bay State Cruise Company could not have been more accommodating! I arrived early for my 1 pm Fast Ferry cruise to Cape Cod from Boston and they permitted me to take the earlier ferry! Accommodations were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful! I highly recommend this ferry service!

    This car service was excellent from booking to pickup to arrival at Logan. When I called the service to learn about how it works, the woman said I needed to book online and stayed online to support me. She was so helpful and kind and patient and made sure I got what I needed and received all the information. A great thing about the service is that the driver texted me within the hour to let me know he would be there at 5:30 am. It was a worry free experience (as opposed to Uber where the drivers often cancel at last moment). Mr. Hasan got there early at 5:16 am and was one of the best drivers I have had. It was a nice car, smooth drive and he was gracious (had water for me) and thoughtful (checked your make sure I had everything). I will use them again and highly recommend them.

    I rode on buses and trains to and from my destination. On my way there, the buses were a little uncomfortable, but the train was great. This was my first time traveling on a train, and I absolutely loved it, and the seats were very comfortable, and with my visual impairment, the personnel were very respectful and accommodating. On my way back, however, I needed help finding my suitcase, but when I asked an employee on the train for help, she was downright rude! She wouldn't help me find my bag, she said if I didn't get off before the doors closed, they'd have to leave (while I was still on). Despite the fact that I was having a panic attack, the lady still wouldn't help me, and I had medical equipment and medication inside!!! I had it sent to the closest train station near me, but they said if I didn't pick it up in a certain amount of time, they would despose of it! I was able to have a family member retrieve my bag, but I learned a very important and valuable lesson: don't stray too far from your luggage, and keep your medical supplies with you in your carryon(s).

    It's a pain in the bu** to get to the launch point at Logan, but it's a cute, short ride with friendly staff and drops you off next to the Marriott Long Wharf and the Aquarium. Don't use if if you're in a hurry, but it's a delightful way to enter Boston for a vacation.

    Take the Ferry from Hingham Shipyard to Boston. It's a great way to see the harbor and the city from the water. It beats crowded trains and buses. You can even have a drink on board.

    Our driver, Derek, was great. He was very knowledgeable about the American Revolution, all the neighborhoods of Boston and the restaurants. He had great recommendations on sites to see and places to eat. It was very cold and there was snow on the ground and roads but he was a true professional driver. He was very easy to communicate with and had a great personality. We went to Lexington first, then Concord and ended in Cambridge. I would highly recommend this day trip!

    I had flown from Boston to Reykjavik and took a 12-day cruise back to Boston. Having never cruised from/to Boston I was totally unfamiliar with the port and did not wish to inconvenience friends as I live 95 miles away in Western MA. So I found and booked a private, one-way trip from the Boston cruise port to my home. I booked the trip online and received an email confirmation.

    One negative is the back-office. Because I booked this so far in advance, I emailed Skyplus Limos before leaving for my trip just to get a confirmation that they had the reservation. I got no reply. I eventually called them and once I finally got a live person, they took a long time trying to look up my reservation (I had all the info) and it just seemed inefficient and vague and left me unsure. I also had the same experience two days before my return trying to get someone on the phone to confirm the trip.

    Having said that, the online reservation was absolutely in place and the day before I received an automated text confirming the pick-up time/place. I received another text an hour before and one when the driver was on the road. So the automated aspects of this business seem to work very well, it's just difficult to get a human email response or a live person on the phone with quick access to information. The driver called me just before arriving and again when he arrived to let me know exactly where he was waiting. My driver ("Mark") was very professional in all ways (uniform, contacting me, conversation, driving skills). The car was a pristine, black, Lincoln sedan; plush and extremely comfortable with a very nice ride.

    I will absolutely use Skyplus Limos again. A little more expensive than other options but definitely worth the comfortable door to door professional service; we all need pampering sometimes.

    Now that I've been to South Station, I understand it a whole lot better. First, I am so grateful to the gentlemen who posted tours of the station on Youtube. They were really helpful. It can be daunting arriving at a strange train station at night, but the videos on Youtube take some of the mystery out of it. The station is roomy inside, and has at least 7 or 8 eateries. Not very many places to sit. So if you order food, get something that is easy to eat standing up. Unfortunately, we were approached three times by people asking for money. So be ready for that to happen. You will see all kinds of people at the station, young, old, families, workers, students, you name it. Just watch the big board for your train number and keep track of when it's arriving. Listen to the people on the loudspeakers. It is hard to hear in there, so be vigilant to that you know what track your train is coming in on.

    Very comfortable and convenient way to get to Gillette Stadium. It’s a really easy process so if you are not familiar with the area I would definitely recommend them.
