If you are looking to get some outstanding photos of Boston to take home and show your friends, this is how you will get the best shots. We didn't need any souvenirs since the photos taken on this boat are our lasting memories. The architecture of Boston and Cambridge is truly special. The only reason why I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I am comparing it to the most outstanding architecture cruise I have ever taken - Shoreline Sightseeing in Chicago. It's probably a bit unfair for me to compare the architecture of the two cities, but I felt there was simply more to see on the Chicago cruise. However, the commentary won out on this one. The guides sure know their stuff!
