This was one of the best Groupons I have bought. The tour was fun, informative and very well put together. I will definitely go back.

We especially liked being able to handpick cranberries in the bog and talking to a very experienced cranberry grower about the process of growing and taking cranberries to market.

Our tour guide Tom Finn was extremely knowledgable and friendly. It was incredibly insightful to meet cranberry farmers in the middle of their harvest season, and I learned so many fun facts about cranberry farming and the industry that I am turning into a lesson for third graders!

This tour was extremely unorganized and misleading. The guides were unprofessional and did not have a good relationship with the farmers and farms we went to and it was really uncomfortable. The tour guides had poor communication with each other so repeated information was the only thing we ever heard. There was no itinerary and the tour was unwelcoming because of the poor relationship with the farms. I would highly recommend you do NOT waste your day doing this.

1) On the groupon it says to meet at Flax Seed Farm which is not the actual place of the tour. 2) I thought it was organized but that is because we had the better tourguide. The women tourguide was not as good. 3) I called Saturday morning to make a reservation for that day and left a message. After waiting a hour I called again and the women picked up the phone to confirm my reservation. She called me on Sunday morning to confirm for Sunday's tour. Not sure how the miscommunication happen but I think they need a better reservation system. 4) I enjoyed the tour but it seems the company still needs to work out some logistics.

The tour was very nice. I have one tiny suggestion for when they are giving the tours next year. They should try and put the amount of berries in a better perspective than the barrels or crates they go in. For example, if a field is 3 aces, or 5 acres, they explained that it would produce so many (from 1 to 7) tons of berries but you really never can gague how many berries could come off of a field. If the tour guide could better understand the size of a field (say 5 acres, 15 acres) and how many of those standard bags of ocean spray cranberries that you find in the store, it would help. So it would be more informative if he or she said, this five acre plot will make aproximately 20,000 of the bags that you find at stop and shop for $2 a piece, or all the way up th e140,000 bags (hence the 1 to 7 ratio explained during the tour. The tour was very informative. Overall excellent time. Oh, one more thought. The bus pulled away so fast from the second farm that we lost it and couldn't find the third farm. That was the only bummer.
